How to Embrace a New Dream And Let Go of the Old One

4. Surround yourself with people who will pull you toward the new dream.

What would happen if you love coffee but you are surrounded by people who can’t stand it? You will soon feel bad about loving coffee. On the other hand, if you hang around coffee people, you will fuel your passion and grow your expertise.

Whatever your dream is, you must find your “peeps” who are passionate about the same thing and have a similar perspective. The synergy of ideas and community will help you go faster and further than you could on your own.

Every Monday morning I meet with my mastermind group. These three guys are a key part of my support network as I work on my writing and life goals. I also have a couple of great writer friends whom I talk with on a regular basis.

A few months ago I joined the 48 Days Eagles Community. It has been a great source of inspiration and encouragement as well.

I’ve heard it said that you are the average of the five people you spend the most time with. Who are these five people in your life, and are they taking you in the direction you want to go?


Pruning is hard but necessary

When I was a kid, my grandfather would sometimes recruit me to help prune his apple trees. I learned at a young age that you have to remove some unnecessary limbs so the whole tree can be healthy.

It’s hard to let go of a dream we have nurtured for many years. But it’s a key part of the process of stepping into a new dream and becoming fully awake to the great things God wants to bring to life through your creative powers.

Have you ever had to let go of an old dream so you could fully pursue a new one?
