Delivering your honest opinion to a person in the middle if dream chasing can be daunting to a person. If they are in the middle of the pursuit, the labor being put into things is just too much for them to handle at that time. Or,they can only see the end of it where they reap the benefits and can’t see the labor that will go into their pursuit. People are sometimes blinded by their dreams and need to be reminded the realistic nature of things.
So, here are a few things to help blinded dream chasers along in their journey…
1. Bring them back to the beginning of their journey.
Why do they want what they want? That really needs to be answered before moving on. If it is for selfish reasons, it won’t last. If they seem discouraged and the motive is right, remind them of why they started this in the first place. Sometimes people just need to be encouraged.
Check the motive.
2. Be there in love.
When you begin speaking into someone’s life, remember to say things positively and respectfully, but also getting the point across all at the same time. Think your words through and deliver them how you want to. Nothing stings more than saying things the wrong way.
Focus on the delivery.
If people would just get better at this one thing, relationships would be a lot easier, huh? Remember that you are there to hear what they have to say. Don’t just spill out everything in your knowledge bank. Know where the other person is coming from and offer the best possible advice after listening to them all the way through.
Listen and respond with building others up in a positive way.
Whether you are the receiver of counsel or the one giving counsel, I hope that there is something here that you find useful. In the end, things are hopefully better now for that person than they were at the beginning. Show them that the work being put in now is going to be worth the end goal. Things won’t always be laid in our lap and you may have to put some work in or maybe even a lot.
The main thing to remember is that a person reaps what they sow.
