Have You Given Up on Your Dreams?

By Dr Joe Rubino

Remember when we were kids… And every day was an adventure.  The grass was greener, the sky more blue, and the stars shown brighter.

And our futures went on forever – as far as the eye could see. There was no stopping us.  Go ahead, let ’em try!  We marched at each day break and conquered the world by nightfall. Life was full of endless possibilities…

Can you think back to those times and to your hopes and dreams for the future?

Astronaut, President, Football Hero, Rock Singer, Doctor, Baseball Legend, Famous Artist, Movie Star, Scientist…

How clear the path to each one…

Or maybe you only knew that you were destined for greatness.  But you were sure it was coming… Because that’s all it took.

Your unwavering belief in yourself.  Your absolute determination.  The certainty of youth.

Congratulate yourself if you reached those goals.  Find joy in having stayed the course. In being one of the very few.

Look back to where you started and know that you have done exactly what you intended… To know you are exactly where you want to be.

And it’s OK if you haven’t gotten there, you are not alone.  Most of us have yet to realize our full potential.  It’s not like they offer a class in achieving your dreams.

And really, it doesn’t matter where you have been… Or even where you’re at today.

The only things that matter are who you want to be and where you want to be.  Most likely, fulfilling those childhood dreams today would not hold the same joy.  Age blesses us with the understanding of what brings true happiness.

But you still have – within your heart and mind – a clear vision of who you want to be now…

Leader, Salesperson, Author, Partner, Executive, Speaker, Marketer, Coach, Better Parent, Effective Communicator, Mentor, Business Owner…

Whatever it is…  you can reach it…
