Speak the dream, not the circumstances | © Fola Daniel Adelesi

When you look at the circumstances around you, it is so easy to say what the circumstance is saying rather than saying what the dream in your heart is saying. I want to strongly appeal to you, don’t ever think that the dream is a mirage and start confessing what the circumstances say. The dream may not be happening yet, that does not mean it will not happen.

Stop speaking about the things that you are going through and the terrible things happening around. If that is what you will always focus on, you will get more of your present circumstances in ten years time. If you will try, as hard as it may seem, and focus on your dream, you will be able to get out of that circumstance and begin to live your dream.

Many people think that their dreams will come alive when a miracle happens or some angel investor shows up and makes things happen for them. While they are hoping that will happen, they keep shutting down their dreams with their mouths. Don’t ever shut down your dreams with your mouth regardless of the circumstance.

I remember some years ago when I first started my business. I would refer to myself as President and CEO of the company. Now the entire company over which I called myself President and CEO had no office and was struggling to get clients. The business had a clear vision and a 5 feet by 8 feet office. In fact, I used to jokingly say that my head is my head office. At some point, I was tempted to stop calling myself President and CEO of the company because it didn’t look like the company was making progress or getting some really big clients. I was almost looking at the situation around but I realised that would not help.

Don’t stop calling yourself what you see on the inside regardless of what is on the outside! When you call yourself by what you see on the inside then you are speaking to your dreams and your future. When you call yourself by what you see in your present situation then you are speaking to your circumstances.

The beautiful thing is that whatever you say is what you get. You speak to circumstances, you get more of it. You speak to your dreams, you get more of it. Why don’t you just speak to your dreams so that more of your dreams will manifest from time to time? For so many people, this will be hard. That is so because it is easy to say what you are feeling and not what you are seeing which has not become a reality.

When you speak to your dreams by saying what you see on the inside, some people may wonder what is wrong with you. They may even laugh at you. They wonder why you are saying what you are saying. Some of them will even ask you to stop deceiving yourself. They will tell you that they are realists and that they do not deceive themselves. Well, look at their lives! That’s why they are not where they want to be. They keep speaking the hard realities of life or they confess their circumstances. So they will tell you stories of how things have been hard from thirty or forty years ago.

I can confidently tell you that if you do not give up speaking to the dreams and saying what is inside you, it is only a matter of time before your confessions become your manifestations. As you are saying what you see inside you, some people will say that you are stupid. Again I assure you that before long, what they call your stupidity will become your reality.

Don’t ever be bothered by who thinks otherwise when you start saying what you see yourself becoming. It is not their dreams or destiny that is at stake. It is yours and you must never let it slip just because of the circumstances or because of what or other people think.
