Often, we dream big dreams and have great aspirations. Unfortunately, too often our dreams remain just that – dreams. And our aspirations easily collect dust in our attic.
This is a sad turn of events. Instead of experiencing exciting adventures in self actualization, we get caught up in the humdrum of living from day-to-day just barely existing.
But you know what? Life could be so much better, if only we learned to aim higher.
On the other hand, many people suffer from dreaming without acting on them. The result? Broken dreams, and tattered aspirations.
Thomas Edison once said that genius is 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration. Nothing could be truer. For one to accomplish his or her dreams, there has to be hard work and discipline.
With that in mind, I have something very special to share with you. My daughter Courtney has been blessed with many talents. To some that statement might sound conceited but there’s nothing conceited about it. Her gift is God-given. It is her passion, her love, her Purpose. Courtney is an entertainer and it is her passion to make a difference in this world by touching people’s lives through her gift – Courtney tells it better than I can….
Courtney is a HUGE inspiration to me and so many around her. She knows why she is here on this earth and knows what she wants. But most importantly, not only does she have a vision and a dream but she is making it become a reality through hard work and dedication – she is Executing on Purpose!
The most common problem to setting goals is the word impossible. Most people get hung up thinking I can’t do this. It’s too hard. It’s too impossible. No one can do this.
However, if everyone thought that, there would be no inventions, no innovations, and no breakthroughs in human accomplishment.
Impossible is just a word. Like the title of Courtney’s debut album “Impossible Is NOTHING!” When you set your mind to do something and execute, impossible means nothing.
This album is about so many things – love, loss, working together to realize a vision, friendship, LIFE. It’s about making the Impossible, Possible! The title of the album actually came from tragedy adverted because of the people in Courtney’s life that chose to stand up and do something.
It’s about not limiting yourself with self-doubt and self-limiting assumptions. It’s about breaking past what you deem impossible.
You see, the key here is not to limit your imagination. It is to aim high, and start working towards that goal little by little. If you reach too far out into the sky without working towards your goal, you will find yourself clinging on to the impossible dream.
Enjoy Courtney’s video “You’re My Lullaby” Not only is it a beautiful song, notice the story (stories) that unfold.
Notice the rhythm of the song. It captures the roller-coaster of emotions when a relationship is forming, a vision, a dream – a lullaby. There will be ups and downs, times when your heart is racing and times when it’s calm. Nothing happens over night, it’s a process. So, don’t just focus on the end result, enjoy the bumpy ride along the way. THAT’S what it’s all about – that’s LIFE!
So dream on, friend! Don’t get caught up with your perceived limitations. Think big and work hard to attain YOUR lullaby. As you step up the ladder of progress, you will find out that the impossible has just become a little bit more possible.
Take it from Courtney – when Passion and Execution meet, Impossible is NOTHING!
And Stay tuned….. She’s Just Getting Started!!!!!
To Your Success!
