I had lunch with someone close to me recently, and I was sharing dreams that had grown from ideas I have and projects I’m working on. I’m so excited! As much as I would like to have all of them going right now, it’s not even smart to try to do anything more right now.
So, I thanked “them” for lunch and received this as part of the response.
“I can’t see you have long term successes until you focus on one thing. Right now you are holding bubbles.”
I was disappointed when I read this, but I reminded myself that that is why I shouldn’t share my dreams with others. Anyone who knows me know that writing and blogging are my first loves. They also know that both are being done through The Write Design Company and Shorty: Your Chicago South Side Resource. However, what they don’t know is that Shorty will help me grow The Write Design Company and while that’s happening Shorty will also grow.
Also, I realized that the person I was sharing with really doesn’t understand the full extent of what I do. They have an idea, but they didn’t totally get it. Such is life.
I just wanted to share this story as a reminder as to why you shouldn’t share your dreams with others. Of course, that doesn’t apply to everyone. Just be mindful of those you do decide to share them with.
I wish you all the best as you work to attain the desires that God placed on your heart. And stay away from haters and naysayers.
