Many dreams don’t make it out of the “thinking about it” stage.


We tell ourself:

It’s too risky.
It’s not the right time.
It will be uncomfortable.
I probably couldn’t do it anyway.
It’s not the right time.
I’m too old to dream.
I don’t have enough experience.

Excuses derail more dreams than the consequences of the dreams.

If you dream about it, if you’re willing to put work into your dreams then you have a chance of living life on your terms.

There are no guarantees except that if you don’t dream and if you fill your life with excuses then you will have no chance of doing anything but watching others have their dreams come true.

Don’t be a spectator to other people’s dreams. Have your own dreams, have a plan and then work the plan toward your dreams, but it all starts with your dream.

I’m cheering for you.
