❤️ Hope this reaches YOU, and provides the power-up needed.
🧠 quick update: I’m feeling really good! Today marks one full week of chemo & radiation, five more to go! I feel strong. I’m healing. I’m grateful!
What am I learning?
January 1, 2007 was when I officially began to chase my dreams, not someone else’s. I just left corporate world where I made good money to make zero. The first step was to load up all my hopes and dreams and set sail, conquering all my entrepreneurial goals. I knew it wouldn’t take long before landing on ‘I Made It Island’ and scaling up Goal Mountain would be quick and easy. Well, that’s at least what was supposed to happen.
It’s a much longer story to tell in one sitting, and it probably makes a better book than an idea post. Let’s just say, it wasn’t long before I realized getting to my goals wasn’t as easy as everyone else made it seem. ❤️ power-up!
Here’s the deal… When we see our heroes crushing their dreams we get confused, or is it delusional? They make it look so easy, so it’s gotta be easy for us, right? What we don’t see is all the zig and zags behind the scenes. Heck, Michael Jordan made basketball look so easy! Surely, all I need is some Air Jordans, a ball, and maybe some Wheaties and I’ll be just like Mike? However, if you read the book ‘Relentless’ by Tim Grover you find it wasn’t so easy for Mike after all.
Every step forward or backwards can’t be discounted in chasing your dreams. It’s the steps you refuse to take that become the reason why your dreams fall apart! ❤️ power-up!
Whether or not you make it to your dreams comes down to what you tell yourself, believe about yourself, and how often you’re willing to stand back up. ❤️ power-up!
In my case, my path has been more of a scribble than any sort of road map. I’ve messed up so many times, made bad decisions, knew I should walk away, doubted myself, gave up, was too easily persuaded by others, and taken advantage to only name a few.
What you’ll find is it’s the hard times when you are sharpened. It’s the times when you were counted out that you’ll look back on. It’s where you’ll learn the most about yourself. ❤️ power-up!
After all, isn’t that the point of this whole life thing anyway, to figure out a way to improve the world, even a smidge? ❤️ power-up!
The point of all this is to say, keep trying! You will have failures, but that doesn’t mean you’re a failure. It just means there’s a million other possibilities. Your dreams are waiting for you to move towards them. You will never find them if all you do is wish.
Wishing is fun, but the magic happens in the moving! Move today, in this moment, because that’s the only reality you really have. ❤️ power-up!
Much love and thank you for the continued good vibes! ❤️
Live More. Love More. Wonder More!
