Just recently, we completed our Action Coach global conference of which all our coaches from around the world get together to learn, grow, brainstorm, mastermind, listen to some great speakers, and take in some good learning. We’re usually live and in-person as this year we were supposed to be in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, which was postponed from last year. Unfortunately, we’ve been virtual for the last two years and next year God willing we’ll be live again. Now, at the end of every global conference, Brad Sugars announces where we’re going next year of which he announced Maui, Hawaii for 2022. I’ll tell you outside of my bags being packed, I’m all in, the room is booked, I’m ready to rock and roll, have some fun, and fully enjoy Hawaii.
I recently took a vacation, went home to Rhode Island, and spent some time with my family. Talking with my brother we mentioned our mom who passed many years back at the age of 63. It started me thinking of how she always wanted to go to Hawaii, but unfortunately, never did. It also had me remember something Les Brown would ask; “where do most of the dreams go?” Unfortunately, just like my mom, most of the dreams go to the grave. You carry them with you to your eternity. Why is that? Is it the lack of belief, waiting for the right time, afraid, or just not having the wherewithal or the funds to actually do those things? The reason I bring this up is going to Hawaii next year is a little sentimental for me because my mom always wanted to go, so I’m going to find a way to take her with me so she could finally enjoy Hawaii like she wanted to do many years back.
I share this with you because if you have a dream list, that list is for you to execute, accomplish, to live out your dreams. Don’t take them to the grave. Don’t talk about what you should do, want to do, going to do. Do it! When I was up in Rhode Island, I was speaking to these young folks, we were just sitting on the rocks watching the beautiful boats go back and forth. This young man and I started talking, I told him I was from Florida and I love scuba diving and spearfishing. He shares, “oh yeah, I’m going to do that someday.” And I asked him, “When?” He replied, “Soon.” “When’s soon?” I asked. He then realized he never made a commitment to actually do the thing he dreamed of. I speak with others and listen to them talking about something they’re going to do someday. But it’s all talk. They’re wishing. It’s a dream. They’re going to take it to the grave with them.
If you really want to do something, put it out there, just do it, no matter how crazy. Who cares what other people think? We’re here to live life to the fullest. I’m here to tell you whatever that may be, whatever that may look like, go out there make it happen. Don’t be like my mom that always wished to go to Hawaii, raised six kids, and by the time she was 63 she was so tired she passed. Be someone that lives life to the fullest. Don’t make excuses for yourself. Don’t put the wrong stories in your head. Don’t use words like I don’t think I am worthy. I don’t think I can. Get rid of all that crap. Write down your dreams, create a timeline to turn them into goals, make a plan, execute, live your life to the fullest, and you’d be amazed how much adventure and abundance is out there, and how fulfilled you’ll be that you lived life on your terms.
I just simply wanted to take this detour today to get you to really think about who you want to be and what you want to be in your life and what you want to do to live life to the fullest. Go out there and live your dreams.
