Have you ever embarked on a new project and then found yourself overwhelmed?

Maybe you’ve been working on something for a while, but things just haven’t clicked.  Or…

Maybe tell yourself that if you read another book on the subject and get some expert advice, you’ll figure things out.

Somewhere, deep in your spirit, you sense that you were created to do something significant.


Do you have a big dream - Churchill Quote


Most of us have hopes and dreams.

Have you noticed… some people not only know what they were created to do, but they are doing what they were created to do?  While on the other hand, some seem to move from one hope or dream to another, with nothing to show.

I have a few dreams which have yet to come to fruition.

Last night I was talking to my husband about one of my dreams and I had a light bulb moment.

These days, there are several big obstacles to my dream.  One thing is for sure… I shouldn’t let the obstacles get in the way of realizing those dreams.  They may be a hindrance today… but those obstacles won’t always be in my way. The one thing I cannot do is let an obstacle stop me in my tracks.  I need to keep moving towards the goal.  And one day… with continuous effort… I will reach my dream(s).

This quote from Churchill came across my path.  It totally resonated with me when I read it.

“Continuous effort–not strength or intelligence–
is the key to unlocking our potential.”

Winston Churchill

I don’t need more information or whatever to move me towards my goals.  I just need to keep at it.  I need to press on.

Do you sense that you were created to do something significant?
Don’t wait around for it to happen… move in the direction of your calling.

Do you have a big dream… too big for you all by yourself?
Consider WHO instilled that dream in your mind and heart and trust HIM to guide you towards it… putting one foot in front of the other.

Are you like me… moving towards your goal or dream, but running into obstacles?
Keep moving.  Keep pressing forward.  Yes… there will be hindrances.  When you can’t step forward… step sideways… just keep moving.


If you said yes to the question, "Do you have a big dream?" you no doubt are facing obstacles. This Winston Churchill quote and 8x10 photo art print is a free download to print and frame as a helpful reminder to yourself to keep moving towards your dream.

“Continuous effort–not strength or intelligence–
is the key to unlocking our potential.”

Winston Churchill


It’s not our strength or our intelligence that is the key…

It’s our effort.  

Continuous effort.

If you want to have a healthy body, you have to exercise, you have to move.

You could go all out and become a body builder or triathlete.  But, if you’re looking at fitness for health, the best thing you can do is walk.  It’s something most can do, every day.

That putting one foot in front of the other will bring us good health.

And that putting one foot in front of the other is the continuous effort needed to move us toward our goals and dreams.

There is no question…

You were created to do something significant.

    What an encouraging post. Yes I need to change my thinking. I do feel like my life is against a brick wall. I had hopes and dreams and told okay. Move forward but blocks came and I’m frustrated. I feel hands up. Walls up. And so it is my choice what to do. God gave us a book of Wisdom. God does not want us to be puppets. He says to run after Wisdom!! Thus I do need to run after Wisdom to make choices to change the impossible that I’m stuck in right now. What an ordeal. My mom had a phrase,”Don’t be a stick in the mud” Is that what it said??! Acstuck in the mud?? Either way, a stick or me in mud are not freely flowing.
