Nike said it best in one of their most effective marketing campaigns, “Just Do It!” We all have dreams of doing something great. Will we all do those things? Maybe.
It really depends on what you define as “great.” It also depends on what you are doing to make those dreams come true. I believe in positive affirmations and even vision boards. But will your dreams magically happen from those two things? Possible. But life will always reward action and the reward may not show up or look the way you want it to.
Action could be taking that class to beef up your skills in a certain area or reading that biography on someone that is where you want to be. I have even watched YouTube tutorials to beef my skills on Photoshop, video editing, marketing and prepping for interviews. The internet is a wonderful resource that we can use to help make our dreams come true. You also will need to do some leg work. You will have to get out there and meet people that may be able to help you.
But trust me, nothing will happen if your mind and your actions are not in line with pursuing your goals. If you are actively working towards your goals, life will put the people, ideas and sometimes even the money in your path to make it happen. Sometimes working towards one goal, life will open other opportunities for you. If you told me several years ago that I would be running an online radio station or blogging, I probably would have thought you were crazy.
Today, write down some of your goals. Then start making a list on how you may be able to achieve those goals. Will you need to go back to school? Will you have to start taking vocal lessons? Is there a book you should read? Is there someone doing what you want to do that you can follow and study? Life will definitely reward action, but also be open to when life says take another path. #kempism
