We hear, “Follow your dreams” so often now that it doesn’t have any real emotional impact — a trite platitude, perhaps, from an age gone by?

We’re busy, you know. There is so much to do in life with it’s necessary obligations and commitments. We have important work to do. Yet, that whisper, “Follow Your Dreams!” is a little embarrassing.

Am I right?

It is from a time when you and I were too young, naive and innocent to know how the world really worked.

But were we?

Go to any amateur sporting event and you see the spirit of dreams coming true in action every single day. Sophisticated cynicism can’t breathe at these tournaments nor can critics with the know-it-all stares survive. The people at these tournaments are living their dreams.

They may not be at the “Show” or at the Olympics and that doesn’t seem to matter. What they are is committed to being the best they can be by giving their all, living with intention, and having the courage to care enough to stand up and be counted in the Arena.

If you lack faith in yourself right now, it might help you to witness children and adults, alike, stepping up and showing up for what they love and care about – COME WHAT MAY- in the Arena.

It takes COURAGE, COMMITMENT, and FAITH to make your dreams come true like that.

How are you doing on your dream-making lately? Are you in the arena or on the sofa binging Netflix? Are you working hard or are you distracting yourself with petty bull sh–?

When we are caught up in our daily lives it really doesn’t feel like time is short and that death can happen tomorrow. Does it? We can feel a sense of comfortableness and the mediocrity of that routine – the numbness of it —  can hit us in the face when we least expect it.

Isn’t it true that when you “dial it in” you really don’t feel much of anything?

Sometimes it takes an event, like someone passing, to remind us of how short life can be.

When we take the time to look at how we actually feel, how we interact with those we care about, and how we are showing up in the world, our awareness starts to heighten, our feelings start to come to the surface. Our reflections can surprise us.

Does it really have to take a death of a loved one to ask the question, “Am I living my best life every day?”

We, then, can change. We can make a commitment to live a more purposeful life for a few weeks or months. But then the noise of daily life intrudes, once more, and we forget that absolute truth: we only have so much time.

And how are you going to make that time mean something? Do you want to stay comfortable or do you want to develop the self discipline supported by good habits to live a life of your dreams?

If you are tired of feeling numb and are done with all the warm, cushy, comfyness, I invite you to join me and live life on your own terms. Follow your heart and discover your passions. Learn how to be better – a better friend, a better listener, a better teacher, a better leader.


When witnessing courage, we can rediscover our own

A challenger said this

Below are the essential ingredients to start feeling more purposeful and more fulfilled in your daily life. When you look in the mirror and like how you are showing up in the world AND are taking the steps to bring your mission, vision and dreams to life, you can’t ask anymore from yourself than that.

The Make It Count Protocol

  1. Act with Intention. Whether you are spending time with loved ones, working out, or working on that project, be intentional about the outcomes that you want. Act with the intention to live from your best self. Who are you when you are at your best? (My high performance coaching clients have gone through an exercise where they can remind themselves to be their best selves on demand.)
  2. Respect your dreams. You have them for a reason. You were created with amazing capabilities that you haven’t even scratched the surface of yet. Don’t believe me? Do research on the most influential people of our time and you will discover how they thought about themselves and their lives. They grew to be great.
  3. Develop your courage. To make your dreams real, you need to practice doing that which you fear each day. It’s like developing a muscle – you need to practice to make it stronger. Talk about your dreams in everyday conversations. Need inspiration? Look at children. Astronaut? Pilot? Taylor Swift?! They are ready to share. Why can’t you do the same?

By the way, fear can simply be a trigger that tells you something is really important. Fear can be a gateway to a new level of purpose, success, and fulfillment. Only you can decide what to do with fear. But to think that people who are successful, who are dreamers, who execute on the moonshots don’t have doubts, fears and insecurities is not realistic.

How much better will your life be tomorrow, next week, or a year from now if you used this protocol, consistently?

You deserve a life of your dreams.

Your dreams are no less important than the most successful people in the world. 

You don’t have to take my word for it! Try this protocol for yourself and see!
