For twelve years, I have worked as a Life Coach. When I ask my clients why they chose a particular career, their responses almost always boil down to two essential reasons: the dollar or the dream. Most of the time, it is the dollar.
God has given each of us a dream. But most people forfeit the dream for the dollar. Then, when they approach the end of their lives, they find themselves unfulfilled and unhappy.
Are you chasing the dollar or the dream? If you chase the dollar, you may end up with many dollars, but you will also end up unhappy and unfulfilled. Worst of all, you will miss your dream, your destiny, your reason for being on this earth.
But if you chase the dream, you may end up with the dollar as well, because the dollar often follows the dream.
What is the dream or vision God has given you for your writing? Are you chasing it?
As the Lord once told me, “Your vision is your provision.”
Follow your dream first, and the dollar will not be far behind.
