25 Questions To Stop the Dream Thief
& End Procrastination
We are in a divine season of God releasing new revelation and understanding into our life callings.
This happens each year around the Jewish holidays, Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. These holidays are both coming in October — so I want to help you prepare to move forward hand-in-hand with God during this season.
The dream thief
God is releasing revelation and insight into your greater calling in life.
But have you ever felt like something is holding you back from moving to the next level or from going after your life dreams? There is a dream thief that can try to take away your passion for life.
“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” John 10:10 NIV.
Life is meant to be lived with purpose and we were all designed to have passion for living. Ultimately, receiving God’s love and power into your life is what will change you the most. But even still, there are many people who have done this yet still feel unfulfilled and adrift.
This is a time, like no other, to find and fulfill your greater purpose in life. You were destined to do great things and it does not have to be difficult. It is as easy as doing one small thing each day — or week — that moves you closer to God, or your destiny.
Mother Teresa is known to have said, “Not all of us can do great things. But we can do small things with great love.”
I have developed a lifestyle of doing small things, every day, which do not seem like much at the time, but add up over time.
You can change the spiritual atmosphere around yourself and others when you catch on to this powerful practice. I have helped thousands of people develop this lifestyle.
I needed to write a book, but I did not have the time or energy. I kept putting it off and procrastinating, but then I decided to do one small thing a day towards my writing goal. I would do some research, then write a small section. I did this consistently and I was able to get my first book written.
Ultimately it did not take a lot of effort, as I was just doing one small thing at a time. Now, I write a small amount every day and then once a year I pull it together for a book or a new online course.
This same practice works for losing weight and getting healthy too. Years ago, I needed to lose 30 pounds. I started doing one small thing each day, like research a diet, find an easy way to exercise, get an accountability partner, throw out my junk food, etc. Within a few months, I was well on my way to getting back in shape. The hardest part of this was overcoming the procrastination by getting started.

What does this have to do with God speaking to you about your destiny? Well, if you can do small things — then you will be ready when the bigger ones come your way.
