You have a million things running through your mind right now, I know. It happens to me all the time (for example right now). So let’s take a few seconds with Uncle Leo and let’s relax. Let go of drama at work, assignments at school, needs from mom and dad, pets, kids, dinner, weight loss, money gain, Corona Virus, the Kardashians, and breath…
Let’s be real, it’s 2020 and we are all looking to our right or left to see who is going to wake us up from this constant nightmare. Everyday something new rocks our world and we just can’t wait to go to the comfort of our own home...we’ll never mind scratch that. But we just can’t wait for the chaos to come to an end and this nightmare to be over. I’ve grown to love comic book movies, doesn’t this seem like the perfect time for the super hero to make his grand appearance and save the day? If I’m being honest January would’ve also been a good time. Where is our BATMAN?!?!
Sorry, I digress, For 5 minutes I want you to just stop, and simply think about your dreams. I'm not talking about your dreams to have a new car, new house, or to live in your vacation spot. I’m thinking even bigger. What do you want this world to look like 5-10 years from now and where do YOU fit in it? What are the dreams that you have at night that you DON’T want to wake up from?
Here's the question that I want you to pose to yourself for the next five minutes and just sit. Save the action for later but let’s take some time to think and day dream. How vividly can you actually see yourself in these dreams? When you are dreaming what does this person look like? Does this person look exactly like you? Does this person have your style when it comes to fashion? Does this person have your taste when it comes to food? What about the story? Does your personality fit the struggle they are willing to go through? Do they have the friends that you are willing to have?
My point is, is that you need to be the hero in your own eyes. Be the hero of your own story. YOU need to be the person who changed the world. YOU need to be the person who went through the hard times but was disciplined AND good enough to come out on top for what they believed in. You need to be the person who lives in your dreams...
Decide that it's YOU and not someone else that you see in your dreams. You dream it and you deserve it. Honestly, the only thing that stands between you taking a suitcase to your dreams is fear.
Be the hero of your own story
