I believe you will become a great doctor,
But right now, you might be discouraged, because you’re not there yet.
If this is something you’ve thought about or currently think, I encourage you to read on.
I’d be dishonest if I said I’ve never had these thoughts. Actually, these thoughts have come and gone in my mind for the past few years.
Sometimes, it can feel like God is holding us back from what we think (or even know) we’re supposed to be doing.
Basically, don’t go so fast that your headlights can’t keep up.
Especially if you’re a creative person whose mind naturally wanders, it’s very easy to get caught in dreaming of the future that we miss what we’re supposed to be doing in
Unfortunately, we – like Sarah – sometimes try to take things into our own hands when things aren’t going quite like we want or in the timing that we think is best.
Just like it will be with you.
By all means, keep dreaming and never lose those dreams! However, instead of only thinking about them, let’s change our mindset about them and use them as motivation.
Who we are in the future is largely determined by what we do now.
If we don’t make lots of drawings, how can we expect to be a better artist? Or if we don’t read, or speak to others, or post videos and critique them, how can we expect to become a better speaker?
If you want to be a great CEO, start by doing your current job or your schoolwork well.
If you want to do big things in the future, do the smaller things today.
One step at a time.
