Turn Your Desire into Your Destiny!

“Desire without knowledge is not good,

and to be overhasty is to sin and miss the mark”

–Proverbs 19:2

Desire is good. It shows the beginnings of passion and drive. Desire is a great motivator.  However, it takes much more than motivation to get something moving. It takes the actual step in a forward direction.

People desire a lot of things: to be healthier, to have less stress, to make more money, to be better at (fill in the blank).  Practically, if you want to “get” somewhere, it takes finding transportation, gas, time, direction, and an end point. It’s good to desire, but to actually “get there” involves knowledge, research, planning, time and commitment.

You’ve heard it said, “Those who fail to plan, plan to fail.” You must not only have the desire & vision, but map out what it takes to get there. If you are overhasty in your desire without proper planning and counting the cost, you set yourself up for failure.

It’s not enough to desire to do something but to be dedicated to the vision and mission.  Moving from motivation to dedication builds self confidence and when you’re confident in yourself others will be too!

Turn your desire into true passion. Turn your passion into a plan. Plan your work and work your plan!  The key to success is keeping your vision before you and never giving up.

What you have allowed yourself to conceive and believe you will achieve!


About Laurie Popovich, Pops of Life

Hi! So, happy you stopped by. Stick around while I tell you a little bit about me and my journey. I’m a daughter to Spanish parents and a sister, too! That means I love family, hugs, to share my 2 cents, music, dancing, flavorful foods & coffee. I’m a wife, twice to the same man, in a thrice redeemed marriage. I love deeply because I know no other way and it has filled my life with hope. I’m a believer of the impossible. I’m a mom of 5 beautiful and full of life blessings; but was only supposed to have one. You see, I had cancer; given 6 months to live when our first and daughter was 2. They’re a product of the impossible. I’m a homeschool mom who didn’t think she could teach: first, at all then, at different levels, different styles. I teach in what in my mind was the impossible. I’ve walked through many trials; some that have taken my life in many aspects, including literally. I have overcome the impossible. I’m a spiritual sister and friend. I love to share and encourage others in life to live the impossible. I’m a daughter of the King; a powerful Creator and Redeemer of the impossible – me - and I can be impossible  I love to…love people…encourage others…being a student of life and the impossible …laugh at myself… journal my hopes & dreams & pray to make them a reality… journal my fears & seek to turn them into victories…eat chocolate…cook for many & watch them enjoy the food & fellowship…go against the grain because you never know what blessing is there waiting for you…flirt with my husband openly because I’m in love…squeeze our 5 blessings often because I’m grateful & amazed by them…say sorry often because I make mistakes, stress & well, I’m a mess at times…I run to clear my head…and…I run to God because He’s my source of strength, hope, and love. I’m not where I was and I’m not where I’m yet going to be; I’m under construction deeply desiring to enjoy the journey. I know you have a unique and exciting one too, and I can’t wait to learn and enjoy the journey with you! Grateful, Laurie

      Thank you, Barbara for your kind words and for visiting! We’re so quick to want things right now, a “fast food” mentality and society, that we have lost the value of patience in great blessing.

      Happy that we connected and I welcome your perusal. Have a fantastic week!
