You’re already grown up? Really? There’s nothing more for you to grow into?

Many of us get to a place where we abandon our dreams. We push on, spinning our treadmill and being busy, but it isn’t taking us anywhere new.

In a sense we have empowered other people and circumstances to shape our lives rather than reconnect with our dreams and empower ourselves.

Take a moment, grab your favourite drink and find a quiet place. Remember what you wanted to be when you grew up. Play with the dream and bring it up to date. Trust me – it’s fun 🙂

Now… what is the one small thing you can do today which will connect your reality to your dream.

Tomorrow – you guessed it, do another small thing.

Dreams are real. They are mere steps away.

“Your most important work is always ahead of you, never behind you.” Dr Stephen R. Covey

If you are reading this and saying, “But I have done this kind of thing before and it doesn’t work for me.” Then have a look here at what to do when goal setting doesn’t work.

My best wishes, Paul
