Pursuing a dream is NOT convenient.
It won’t line up with your schedule.
It will mean driving to the other side of town when you’re exhausted.
You’ll have to say “no” to good things you really want to do.
When a dream fits specific, convenient parameters, it is either too small or simply won’t happen.
Tonight I’m going to a networking event, and I can give you many reasons why I shouldn’t go.
It will mean using about half a tank of gas.
I’m an introvert, and out of 40 people, I know only 2.
I’ll miss hanging out with my kids. Of course, the “I’m a lousy dad” thoughts come rushing in with this.
I know my wife needs a break. The inevitable “I’m a lousy husband” thoughts are bundled with this too.
The truth is most of these excuses are really fear-based.
Fear takes a bit of truth and twists it into a lie where you can never win.
I will give my wife a break very, very soon.
And I’m going to spend time with my kids very soon too.
Fear wants us to sit down, shut up, and soak up hours and hours of television.
I refuse to give in to fear.
I refuse to be a “talk about your dream, talk about doing the work” guy and not do anything about my dream.
All talk and no action is a waste of time.
Will you join me and take action? What is something you can do today?
