You know that dream you’ve been tossing around in your head? Do you believe in it?
I mean – DO YOU BELIEVE IN IT?
Can you say with 100% certainty that this dream – this goal you’ve got – is something you want to commit yourself to? Really commit yourself to?
I can tell you that, if you are wishy washy about this dream – if you aren’t quite convinced this is what you want to spend the next several years of your life working on achieving – then you won’t make it.
You need to believe in yourself and in your ability to do this thing, but you also need to know – beyond the shadow of a doubt – that it’s what you want.
When you are old and gray and sitting in your rocker, thinking back over your life, will you say, “That dream was a good one. I’m glad I took the plunge.”
Or will you look back upon your life and say, “I wish I had spent that time some other way.”
There are many options out there – many, many possibilities. Every day we are swimming in an ocean of options, with no end to the possibilities before us. Somehow, out of all those wonderful options, we need to reach out and pluck one – just one – off that tree.
Have you chosen wisely? Have you waded through the muck, pushed aside the possibilities that aren’t quite ripe, and grabbed hold of THE dream that is just perfect for you?
You’ll need to do that. Because you won’t work for anything less than perfection.
Believe in your dream. With all your soul.
