How to Be Even More Awesome

SupermanReady to start a new year? Afraid of failure? Not sure what to do next? Even if you’ve got it all together it’s still a good time to shake things up a bit. Here are several things you can do to reach a whole new level of awesome, which will ultimately inspire others to do the same.

Dream BIG
If you think your dreams are too big or impossible, dream even bigger. Stretch yourself to go further and reach higher than you’ve ever done before.  Don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone.  If you allow God to work through you, you can definitely accomplish the impossible. He created you with gifts and talents to fulfill a mission. Trust Him.

Be Insanely Passionate
Being passionate keeps you motivated, but your zeal and enthusiasm is also inspiring to others. They may think you’re a little crazy for a while, but they’ll eventually watch your dreams come true. At that point you can stick your tongue out to all the haters and proclaim, “Who is crazy now?” It may very well still be you, but that’s okay.

A Flood of Cheerleaders

ImageI forgot to set my alarm clock last night, which usually means I’m in trouble because I am NOT a morning person and I typically don’t wake without intervention.  But, this morning I had a very bizarre dream that miraculously woke me up at the exact moment my alarm would have gone of…if it had been set.

In my dream I found myself standing around on a sunny day with a group of cheerleaders.  We were all dressed in matching green and gold uniforms that curiously matched my junior high school teams.  The weird part is I was never a cheerleader while I was growing up, but rather I was the extreme opposite.  I spent all my time playing in the dirt, climbing trees and riding motorcycles.  I was also shy and socially awkward and the least likely to be invited to a school dance.  But, green has always been my favorite color so at least I had that going for me in my strange subconscious delusion.  While I stood amongst the giggling girls I remember thinking how odd it was to be there.  And I must have had a confused look on my face because one of them turned to me and said, “You’re here for strength on the bottom of our pyramid.”  They seemed sincere and weren’t making fun of me, so that was nice, but also odd.
