Initiation is the first major step that needs to be taken when you aspire to accomplish your goals and dreams. See below as I breakout the Initiation Phase.
1. Vision - Pay close attention to reoccurring visions that you are passionate about. God will give you insight through your visions and dreams of the direction that He wants you to follow.
2. Prayer - Pray that God confirms or verifies your visions by providing you peace and not anxiety as you make the decision to move toward the direction that He is leading you into.
3. Research - research and study the topic of the vision to determine how to begin. Gather the data to include resources, requirements and timelines that are needed to accomplish the goals and dreams.
4. Mentor - find an expert or experts that will use their knowledge, experience and failures to protect and prevent you from making many costly errors that would be detrimental to your success. Mentors also provide motivation and accountability to keep you focused on the various task and through the many setbacks.
