Yesterday I had a conference call with someone I consider one of the most intelligent people I have ever met. We had briefly met at a business summit years ago, and said intelligent dude would go on to grow his own business consulting firm. Given the direction I am headed lately in terms of writing, training, planning (I sometimes wonder what I am NOT doing at this moment) and further developing all things primal strength training, I realized that I have come to a point of needing structure, a course of action, and itemized steps to take to grow personally and in my business.
Coaching. Sometimes you just need to raise your hand and ask for help. I find great freedom in asking for help, and finding the help to live my dreams. Asking for help is the first step in reaching your destiny. Never forget that.
“Let me ask you a question” said Mr. Intelligent. “What is your dream now ? How do YOU really want to thrive knowing that you have achieved great success despite the obstacles that tried to stop you?”
Hell of a question indeed! It took me a moment, but after thinking about how my life has shifted over the year (and might I add, for the better), I came up with a way of life that allows me the freedom to travel, train, and work from anywhere.
“Brilliant” said the new coach. “Let’s make it happen this year. If you can dream it, you can achieve it. “
Hope fulfilled with one phone call. Amazing!
Here in America, we are approaching the Thanksgiving Holiday. During this time of year, we are reminded of those things that we are thankful for, and we express our gratitude for those we love, and life in general. As strange as this might sound, I have come to terms with my chaotic year of 2016. I am thankful for all the headaches, heartaches, tough decisions, losses and failures. I am thankful for those things because all of the tough obstacles I had to press through have brought my dreams to fruition. Having the guidance now to make these dreams come to life is something I am ever more thankful for, and I am so stoked to for all the more dreams to come true.
What are you thankful for? What are you hopeful for? What big dream do you want to see come to life? What has you overcome to dream up even BIGGER dreams? What can you do, and who can you turn to to make these dreams a reality?
If you can dream it, you can achieve it.
