Don’t let anyone talk you out of your dreams!

People will constantly try to belittle your dreams. They’ll tell you that your dreams are ridiculous, you’re crazy and it can’t be done! People will laugh at you and try to talk you out of pursuing anything worthwhile. Remember this: you will stand before God one day and give an account for your life – not their life.  Whatever God has put in your heart for you to do, do it! Don’t let people talk you out of your dreams!

I love this story I read about a guy named Monty Roberts, the author of “The Man Who Listens to Horses”.
When Monty was in high school, his teacher gave the class an assignment to write about what they wanted to do when they grew up. Monty wrote that he wanted to own his own 200-acre ranch and raise Thoroughbred racehorses. His teacher gave him an F and said that the grade reflected that he deemed his dream “unrealistic”. Nobody living in a camper on the back of a pickup truck would ever be able to accumulate enough money to buy a ranch, purchase breeding stock, and pay the necessary salaries for ranch hands. When he offered Monty the chance of rewriting his paper for a higher grade, Monty told him, “You keep the F; I’m keeping my dream!”

Today Monty owns a 154-acre ranch called “Flag Is Up Farms” in California and raises Thoroughbred racehorses as well as training hundreds of horse trainers!
Don’t let anyone talk you out of your dreams. Stay focused on what you know in your heart God is telling you to do!

    Thanks Terri, this is so true and It seems to be so quickly forgotten when you are in the heat of things. Thanks for this timely reminder. God and me make up a majority. His opinion is really the only one that truly matters.

    Thank you for the inspiration. My lesson is, there are some dreams that never depart from our hearts. Even when we let them go. They return. In my case, I notice the same scenario on repeat. I pray and ask, then music fills my heart and mind. Soon after, the opportunity to play this music presents itself. This is always followed by the people closest to me making attempts at placing fear and doubts about my faith and my abilities.
    Yet, Every time this has happened before I’d given in and found my life to float by in chaos. Bowing to the decisions of others and paying the toll of stress, unease, worry, etc. In the process.
    I have a tryout this coming Wednesday. The first show is scheduled 6/23 and is a 3 hour set. Normally, I’d be a nervous wreck. This time, Glory to God, I’m at peace with this.
    The purpose of this is to give faith and hope to anyone on this boat. God listens. He hears and understands. He also gives us strength in our weaknesses. Shine your light. Show your heart. Stand in strength, and put fear in its place.
