Follow Your Dreams – No Matter How Crazy they Are!

follow your dreamsWhat is a dream exactly?  I think of it as a vision, an idea, an obsession that keeps popping up in your mind.  You can’t help thinking about it.  You subconscious dwells on it.  And whatever your subconscious dwells on is powerful if you can utilize discipline to bring it into reality…..

What Does it Mean to Follow your Dreams?

I am very practical when it comes down to DOING things, but when it comes down to which THINGS to DO, I allow myself to think about the ‘pie in the sky’, dream scenario.  Why?  When you think about your true desires…  your dreams…  it brings a sense of joy and peace to think about what it would be like to have them fulfilled.

I wholeheartedly believe that this gift was given to all of us, BUT, people have learned to control and squash that others, sometimes on purpose…..  but more often because that is what was taught to them.

Anything in life is possible.  It may be DIFFICULT to achieve.  But if it’s what makes you happy, part of the joy is in the journey.

Watch this crazy, happy, insane, beautiful nut fulfilling his dream!

Some would say he’s insane.  But I hope you caught the most important points in this video.  First, this guy has been DREAMING of doing this since he was a child.  Second, he is the BEST free-base jumper in Norway….   meaning he has spent a lot of time perfecting his actions (discipline).

I have had many desires in my lifetime, but only a couple of dreams.  Desires may be shorter term, but they are powerful too.  I had a desire to be the first female nuclear reactor operator where I worked.  I had a desire to get my Masters Degree.  I had a dream of becoming a Mother.  I HAVE a dream of creating MULTIPLE six-figure income businesses, sending my kids to whatever schools are best for them, traveling to see my friends and family whenever I wish, and helping other people to do realize their dreams.

I listened to a video by a couple of once homeless guys who have made over $60,000,000 in commissions in less than 2 years. I heard their stories. I thought… can this be true? So I entered my name to get more information and the rest is history.

I am making my dream become a reality. All thanks to a video that changed everything….

If you have a dream to be more, do more and have more, take a look. :)

Who’s your favorite Game of Thrones Character?

favorite game of thrones character

Yes, it’s true…..I am a Game of Thrones Fan….  such a complicated, twisted and yet intricate plot line.  Hey, even successful entrepreneurs have their guilty pleasures!!!!

I love it!  The cast of characters is expansive, but amazingly enough, I am able to keep up with all of them and it really makes it fun because when one of them doesn’t show up on an episode, you wonder what they’re up to….

So, who is your Favorite Game of Thrones Character???

I find my favorites changing as the story continues…

tyrionLast season, my favorite was Tryion Lannister.  I mean, how could you not love him after Season 2??  He was a sarcastic, witty, boozin’, philandering, ‘who cares’ kinda guy.  If he had seen the Lion King, his mantra would have been ‘Hakuna Matata’!

He was smarter than everyone but didn’t play the game until the chips were down.  When it came down to it…  when things got hairy, he put on his ‘big boy pants on’ and defended his family.

He is still one of my favorite characters because he carries on… despite the smack-down from his father, sister and evil brother.  He even ‘made himself’ marry Sansa Stark.  :)   I love perseverance… it’s one of my favorite qualities.

But this season, my new favorite is…..

daenerysDaenerys Targaryen – Mother of Dragons.  Why?  It’s because of the way her character developed.

She was traded off by her brother to marry a brute.  At first, she just put up with her situation…  but then she made a CHOICE to thrive.  She ended up leading the clan after her husband died and most importantly, she sharpened her focus on obtaining the Iron Throne.  It is her obsession, her mission…. and because she is so focused on her goal, every single one of her actions is perpetuated by it.

In a recent episode, when asked how she would succeed since she had no ships, she stated ‘A fortnight ago, I had no army.  A year ago, I had no dragons’.

This is powerful and strikes a cord with me.  Because in order to be successful at  anything, being Queen of the Seven Kingdoms or having a successful online business, you MUST BELIEVE you are capable of anything and FOCUS your attention on accomplishing your goal.

You ARE what you believe you are, because your thoughts drive your actions.

Leave me a comment and tell me your favorite character and what you love about them.  It’s OK, your secret’s safe with me!!  😀
