We can't crawl, walk, or be carried by others
into our dreams! To catch
up to our dreams we must RUN INTO THEM!!!!!
At birth we find ourselves even with our dreams. We want and
need for little that is not freely given to us. All the people
around us offer positive energy that fuels and drives us into our
dreams. We hear of how precious and cute we are by strangers as
well as loved ones. Then one day our dreams start to move a
little faster as people abandon us, leaving our dreams just out of our
Soon we come to realize that we must go after our dreams on our own
least they move out of our reach forever. Little by little we
try to walk on our own. With many falls and unsuccessful
attempts to reach our dreams on our own, others step in to help us.
This kind gesture builds confidence and strength, yet at the same
time; we learn to depend on others to reach our dreams. With the
positive energy being replaced by NO and Maybe, our dreams become
CARRIED BY OTHERS
Next we find that we can't reach our dreams if we just hold onto
others. The only way to keep up with our fast moving dreams is
to be carried by others. Others are able pick us up and place us
in the center of our dreams much faster than walking on our own.
It isn't long before we discover that those carrying us are headed
into there own dreams and not ours. Going the wrong way, our
dreams get almost out of sight; but not lost forever.
RUNNING INTO OUR DREAMS
If we are to ever live in our dreams, we must make it on our own.
First we need to focus on what our dream really is. Then we must
learn to run on our own. We are the people that have the freedom
to run where we need and do what it takes to catch up to our dreams.
The fastest path to our dreams is never by cutting a new trail, but by
running on the path others before us have already made. Only
then will we see that Dreams Come True!
All of us in PL are at one of these stages with our business!
When we sat at our first candle party did you rediscover your dreams?
Maybe it was at a regional meeting when the positive energy reminded
you that you once had dreams of your own. At that point you knew
you could reach them with PL, and joined the team. At first you
were crawling in the protection and care of your leaders.
Everything you needed was there for you from starter kit to training.
Soon you discovered that sitting on your hands you couldn't hold
on to your dreams.
It was time to walk! With many falls and
unsuccessful attempts to reach our dreams on our own, others step in
to help us. We came to discover that no and maybe try to come
between us and our dreams. Our leaders try to carry us past them
with training on how to run (our business) and words of encouragement.
Sooner or later our leaders will have to drop us on solid ground and
let us run on our own. With our own dreams far away, we start
walking faster and faster until we end up running. Only by
running after our dreams will we ever run into them!
There is no magic wand or secret power that will
take us to our dreams!!! We often waist a lot of time looking
for short cuts and something new thinking it will get us there faster.
The truth is that if we are ever to live our dreams WE must work hard
and take the same BASIC route everyone else has to!
Our leaders can't pick us up every day and carry us through our 2+2
calls parties. Only I have the power to reach my own dreams.
The first step to reaching our dreams is to know what they truly are
and never loose sight of them.
Next you need to keep in mind that your dreams are not going to one
day run into you, you must RUN INTO YOUR DREAMS!
Wishing all of you a safe run, Hank
