Such sacrifices may involve friends, family members and yourself.  Total abandonment of yourself for the dream is necessary.  Sacrificing yourself requires self discipline, self control, patience and long-suffering.  Prayer must be the foundation and the altar upon which your dream and your sacrifices are built.

The dream within me is bigger than myself!  I will not allow what people think or say about me stop me from, Dreaming, Hoping, Believing, Striving, Developing.

When you have a dream do you allow people’s thinking to stop you?

Achieving dreams isn’t based on the money in my bank account, but the riches in my heart towards seeing lives impacted and transformed.  Achieving dreams is not based on education, family background or about who you know.  It is about believing in yourself, striving every day and not giving up.
