DREAM | Unscripted 17

An important lesson on striving for your dreams…

10 years ago I was 20 years old, my first business had just failed and I was in a pretty hopeless place.

I didn’t have any vision for my future. But I was yearning for growth, and knew I wanted to be in business and make something of myself.

Not having any mentors in business, or anyone to look to, I decided to save up $50 a week to buy two x $1,000 tickets to a personal development event called Breakthrough to Success.

That event changed my life.

Chris Howard, the presenter, was the most powerful presenter I had ever seen. I remember having one thought as I left… become the person who can create that experience for others.

I wouldn’t be where I am today without that event.

Now fast forward 10 years later.

Last week, Chris Howard reached out to me on Instagram and invited me to dinner… Crazy, right?

When you start out, so many things seem so far off and completely unattainable. But as you keep pushing through, what was once out on the horizon gets closer and closer, until it becomes a reality.

So the lesson here for you?

Regardless of where you’re at right now or how hopeless your situation feels… DREAM.

Regardless of how unrealistic, unattainable or irrational it might seem… DREAM.
