Dare to Dream

“You’re off to Great Places!
Today is your day!
Your mountain is waiting,
So… get on your way!”

Your mountain is waiting,
So… get on your way!”

― Dr. Seuss, Oh, The Places You’ll Go!

My friend Tyler Bel has a way with people. She is able to connect with people on a deep and emotional level. There is one thing she does in particular that had me floored the first time I heard it.

When working with clients she would give them this scenario: Imagine if I had a fairy wand, and could make any wish come true. “What would tomorrow be like? A miracle happened… your wildest dreams have come true. What does tomorrow look like?”

This question often shakes people to their core. It’s not one of those questions you have a prepared answer for. It really makes you think about what you’re doing. It makes you wonder whether you are living up to your own expectations.

It has affected some people so much that they not only changed their jobs. They changed the industry they worked in completely.

It makes you wonder why we don’t ask ourselves that very same question. Am I living the life I want to live? If I could make any wish come true, what would it be? What would tomorrow look like for me?

We can make our way towards that dream starting today.

The thing is, we don’t have to wait for tomorrow. We can make our way towards that dream starting today. Remember, our lives our a marathon, not a sprint.

If we start today, we can achieve our goals. We just have to break our goals down into smaller, more manageable, steps and tackle them one at a time. Just determine the first step you need to take, and do it. Then figure out the next step, and do that. But, you have to start today. Not tomorrow. Not some day. Today.

We can get to those Great Places. We can find the mountain that’s been waiting for us. So why wait? Let’s get on our way.
