Sometimes during the most unusual times in my life I, like many others, come up with some great ideas (or at least I think so). Usually when this happens I am running around looking for a piece of scrap paper, the back of an envelop, or anything that I can use to write my thoughts on before they disappear. But what happens after that? For many of us these thoughts seem to find their way to the round filing container next to our desk after some time has past. This is why I wonder what could have been, what great idea was dreamed up but never acted on. For this reason alone I want to make it my mission to create and develop a central location where all dreamers are welcome. A place to share ideas, develop them, and find those that believe in what in means to pour your heart and soul into something great. If there is anyone else with this passion I implore you to reach out. Let us work together to build a home for future entrepreneurs to come. Who’s out there? Who would love the opportunity to help in such an idea. Can we not build it?
I have this crazy idea of change. I truly believe that we all have the power to make a positive change in our life and improve our own situation. Yes, this is being optimistic about who we are and the abilities that we possess. Furthermore, I also believe that change does not come to those that do not sacrifice for it or have a little good fortune along the way.
What really boggles my mind is why as a society we are so reluctant to change. Is it not a good thing to evolve and improve our status? Why then do we resist when we are called upon to make such a change. Do we fear the unknown? I would say so. If you were asked to leave your job where you know what is expected of you and you make decent money for something that has no certainty at all would you do it? That, my friend, is a choice only some of us can make. Can you?
Ever sit back and remember what it was like to be a kid. You know the time when you pretended to be the person who you saw yourself as when you were all grown up. Who was it? What did you do? Now ask yourself this. What happened? Today that is the question that I am wrestling with. In my time of self-reflection I have to ask this simple but complex question of what happened between the time when I was a child sure of whom I was to become and who I am today.
I have yet to discover where things began to make the turn. Sometimes I think about the small (or even large) bumps in the road of life. Did I lose focus on my dream, or was that I just became influenced in other ways. For me I wanted to be a Doctor; I just didn’t want to take all those classes and be in school that long. Funny thing is that for all the years that I did put in to finally complete my degrees I could have been.
So here I am today, far from becoming a doctor, with way to many obligations in my life to fulfill my childhood dream questioning where I go from here. Can someone who lost the way early on find that passion from his or her childhood once again? It seems to me that once the course of life’s journey has been charted that it is ever so increasingly hard to change direction. Not to say that I still want to be a Doctor of medicine anymore but there are some things that I would like to pursue as a career. The question now is how. How do I show my ability to do what I dream? Can I even get in the door or will I forever be labeled as a person with a career in sales? Can you make the change and start to chase your dream, your life’s ambition? Let’s come together and help each other in charting a new course. A life full with happiness and satisfaction.
