Don't Die With Your Dream
We only get one life.
John Lennon says it’s what happens while you’re making plans.
I believe it’s a gift from God; one to be regifted to the world.
On this side of eternity, we get 70, 80, maybe 90 years (sometimes longer, sometimes shorter) to do all the good we can with the unique ways we are each endowed.
Dreams fuel the best of who we can be and what we can do.
But if too much time passes before you take action on your dream, and that grand vision of the future, it may one day die with you.
Legacy is produced by a life well-lived.
A dogged determination to become all that you were created to be.
The pain of discipline is real.
But so is the pain of regret.
It’s never too late to become the person you were meant to be.
Chase the dream.
Time is going to elapse regardless.
Don’t die with the song unsung.
The book unwritten.
The business not started.
The story not told.
The relationships not built.
Don’t just keep the dream alive.
Pursue it like a hungry hound.
That’s what I plan to do!
The best is yet to come.
