It doesn’t seem that long ago that I was sitting in a circle with a group of athletes and professionals.
We discussed things unfolding in our lives- sometimes good- sometimes bad. The room was our space to keep it real, and have a tribe who was there for each other. We created a think tank where we could hold each other – as athletes and professionals, and thought leaders accountable. We would have dinner. We would laugh. We would think. We shared our ideas about what was really going on. I loved that room. The energy was dynamic. Yet, each week I would leave that room a bit empty, because deep in my gut I knew that most of the ideas that populated the air would go no further than that room after we left.
Dr. Miles Munroe had an interesting quote that summed this up well
“The wealthiest places in the world are not gold mines, oil fields, diamond mines or banks. The wealthiest place is the cemetery. There lies companies that were never started, masterpieces that were never painted…
In an interesting way, that was our room. We left world changing ideas in that room. Until one day I realized that I had an ability to do something about it. My lot in life has been the ability to wake up people’s dreams. I motivate people, I inspire, and I challenge people into action. And one day, I started to challenge these great men not to leave their dreams in sleep mode. I reminded them that everyone has the ability to fulfill those ideas, not just think of them. And slowly, over time guys started putting action to their ideas.
As I challenged that room, I now challenge you – it’s time for your dream to get out of your head and into the real world! It’s time for the world to experience you.
Your dream emanates from a deep space in your passions and ultimately is designed to solve a practical or spiritual problem in this world. Holding back on fulfilling your dream is also holding back a solution that could lead to someone’s happiness, peace or fulfillment. Your dream fulfilled could be the guiding light someone needs to solve an issue that has been holding them back. Your dream fulfilled could also be key to your personal wealth and your personal sense of significance.
What have you been dreaming and desiring that you haven’t gotten out of your head? What are you waiting for? Don’t know how? Well if the intention is there the how will appear. Be intentional about pursuing your dream and the pieces that will make it work will gradually but consistently show up. What can you do to wake up your dreams today?
