We All Have Dreams: Tony Robbins Day 1

OUR DESTINY IS BORN OUT OF OUR DREAMS

Day 1 of Anthony Robbins’ book GIANT STEPS asks us to think about our dreams.

“Take a moment now just to dream and to think about what you really want for your life.” Giant Steps p. 15

My dream. I want to write a best seller.

Mine. ALL mine.

I could temper that and make it more modest by saying—I want to get better with each book I write. Well... I do... but it isn’t the deep burning WANT in my heart.

I could even focus on the other wants taking turns in my thoughts. I want to get back into shape because I really want to be something besides round. (dang - a blasted 'to be' sentence.)

I’d like to turn the clock back and take advantage of those moments I let slip by—remake some of those bad decisions. Bonus - I'd be younger.

So... some of my wants are doable. Some aren’t.

But this focus—this post—what I’m spending time with Anthony Robbins for is to take that HUGE want I’ve been harboring for most of my life and make it a reality. (and truth be know, is the same desire of most writers I know.)

I want to write something that’s a huge success—whether its this one, or the next one, or the next, or the…next.

But... Hopefully this one.

I think it's a wonderful thing that you know what you want for your dream, that you truly WANT it, and you want it badly. Just keep working and it will happen.

You have a wonderful dream, one that I happen to share. You have a fantastic blog. Don't know why I didn't visit it sooner.
