             Three Super-Simple Kick Start Living Your Dreams
                         – in the next 15 minutes
                                by Kathi Lipp
Is there a dream that God has given you, but you are waiting until the kids are grown and you
have money in the bank before you get started?
You may not be able to enroll in a month long pastry making class or take a week off of work to
get started on your novel, but today you can take three little baby steps to making your dream a
day-to-day reality.

   1. Go Public with It
      It’s a little scary to tell the world what you want to do when you grow up—but this is one
      little step could get you closer to living your dream than almost any other. Plus—it takes
      very little time and you don’t have to raid your kid’s college fund to make it happen.
       When you gather up all your courage and tell your best friend, “I want to learn how to
       paint,” suddenly she remembers an old art book she has laying around she would love to
       give you, or her friend from church who teaches art classes. The people you know and
       love want to be a resource. Give them the privilege of being a part of making your dream

   2. Join an Online Group
      This is one of the simplest—and cheapest—ways to start exploring your passion. Find out
      who else is talking about restoring antiques and listen to their conversation. Start by
      Googling your interest along with the term “online groups.” You will be amazed with the
      number of people who want to talk about the proper way to care for 1950’s lunchboxes as
      much as you do.

   3. Don’t be Afraid to Pray
      I remember the first time I put an offer in on a house—I wanted it more than I had
      wanted almost anything else in my life. While I knew that I had dozens of other people
      praying on my behalf, I was too scared to pray.

       I didn’t want God to tell me no. I was afraid to pray until my co-worker Kim asked me
       (in a loving, kind way), why I didn’t believe that God wanted His best for me. Don’t be
       afraid to pray—as with anything amazing in my life, the path is never what I expected,
       but it has always been obvious that God’s hand has been on it the whole way.
