This post is inspired by a quick conversation I had with one of my followers. If you have a question like this one, keep reading and if you have any questions at all, get in touch. The answer to your question may spark my next #AskAbs post…
What wisdom might u have for someone who can’t achieve his dreams because of [lack of] finances and nationality?
Hey, I’m not in your position so I don’t know the full story. But I think we can’t allow excuses like a lack of finances or our nationality to stop us from pursuing our dreams. One of my fave books, The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho has this quote – “when we want something, all the universe conspires to help us achieve it.” This simply means, take the first step to where u want to go and what you want to do and you will be SURPRISED at the people who come into your life to help and the situations that occur.
What is it that you believe you can’t achieve anyway? The first step is changing your mindset.
We see it as ‘luck’ but it’s often the people who are prepared who get lucky and can change their lives because of it. I know it is a lot easier said than done, but even more practically, platforms like kickstarter etc. are good for crowdfunding money you need to raise. And there are SO MANY organisations and opportunities for minority or underprivileged groups at home and abroad. Do the research. You never know… what is it you believe you can’t achieve anyway? The first step is changing your mindset!
This is a new type of post for me. But I believe it still expresses the heart of why I post on my website – to inspire and equip you all to live your best lives. This is how #AskAbs started…
I posted this funny meme on my Instagram feed the other day and somebody responded with a more serious, genuine question. So I wanted to help.
But #AskAbs doesn’t need to stop here. Let me know if you have any questions you think I may be able to answer. And I’ll do my best to support you. I won’t post the response without your permission, though and I’ll keep you anonymous! Drop me a DM or leave your question here.
I’m excited to hear from you!
Have a blessed day & don’t let anything hold you back from your dreams,
