Have you ever had that lingering dream that says, “I’ve always wanted to try this,” but you’re too busy to visualize and bring to fruition the dreams that are beyond your business? In other words, you’re stuck in the present and unable to see the future.
Working with hundreds of owners, leaders and CEOs in both the hospitality and ad agency categories, I’ve been witness to an incredible amount of talent. I’ve also been witness to some leaders having that unfulfilled, empty feeling, gnawing at them day in and day out, knowing there’s ‘something bigger’ to do.
Not diminishing the successes that these executives already have, there’s a line in the sand that stretches beyond that success into a new territory where that imagination becomes reality. Unfortunately, few ever get to cross that line and the spark of genius that’s stuck inside you never gets ignited.
As we get older, the mind ‘enjoys’ being stuck and no longer has the willpower to change. It has forgotten how.
Our lives are speeding by; the time to make your dreams come true is now.
