I know it may seem hokey to some of you out there, but I truly believe that we all share the
ability to dream. Whether we act on those dreams is a different story, and depends on a lot
of different factors. Remember when we were kids, and the adults in our lives told us that
“You can grow up to be whatever you want to be.”? But now that you are older, when you
mention one of your aspirations to a friend or family member, the normal response that
they give you is to say “Are you crazy? You can’t do that!”
What happened to our sense of adventure or our ability to dream to achieve something
that is currently beyond our expectations? I wish I had the answer for everybody on that
one, I truly do. Working in this industry, I am constantly dealing with statements about
how it’s impossible to look a certain way, my genes are fighting me, I will never lose weight,
blah blah blah.
Sometimes it is aggravating, but I do not and will not let those ideas be a part of my life
or the lives of my clients. Want an idea of what I am talking about when it comes to dedication?
Check out the video below. Watch the whole thing, it’s a little shy of 10 minutes. While I
am not a real fan of Will Smith, I wholeheartedly endorse his work ethic, dedication, and
and aggressive attitude he has towards achievement and making a difference.
