Let’s take a look at our dreams and goals and act on them, tweak them, do what’s necessary to get us to the next level… or at least, closer to where we’d like to be. Ralph Waldo Emerson said, “Most of the shadows of this life are caused by standing in one’s own sunshine.” Isn’t that true? Open the blinds in your office and get out of your own way. Use those dust particles that we only see in the sunlight for inspiration.
Ray Bradbury said, “You can’t try to do things; you simply must do them.”
Must. Do. Them.
Open that desk drawer, pull out your list of goals. Choose one. Do whatever it takes to get started. Shove that ball downhill and watch it roll. My own way of saying, get that first word, sentence, paragraph on paper then allow your characters to take you places.
I love the quote by H. Jackson Brown Jr. “Opportunity dances with those who are already on the dance floor.” You don’t need a partner. Get out on that dance floor. Every day is a new beginning. Every morning is a new opportunity. Let’s dance.
