People go around saying you need a reality check. Well, what they don’t realize is that everyone’s reality check is different.
Whatever you are living, whatever your goals, whatever your dreams are, is your reality. If you get off track, then your reality check is to reassess your whatever’s and get them back on track. What you do will be different from others and how you get them back on track will be different. You can’t look at other people and do what they do. You have to do what is best for your whatever’s.
Make a list (pro/con), think with your heart and your head, write down your goals and dreams and how you will get there. Dream BIG! Make sure these are your ideas and not someone else. Devote time to prayer and ask God what His goals and dreams for your life are. His plans are way better than yours and His journey is way more exciting.
Jeremiah 29:11 New International Version (NIV)
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
Ephesians 2:10 New International Version (NIV)
For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works,which God prepared in advance for us to do.
God has already prepared and planned our lives for us. We just have to follow him to follow our destiny. Now that’s a Reality Check!
