Are you a dreamer…

Sep 14, 2011

I often won­der how many peo­ple dream of things they wish they could do but allow fear to creep inside their heads which then ends up keep­ing them from achiev­ing their dreams. Are you one of these peo­ple? If so, you need to break free of the fear and shoot for the moon. I’m sure most of you have heard or read the quote by Les Brown, “Shoot for the moon, even if you miss it you will land among the stars.” This is so true.

I have always been a very goal ori­ent­ed per­son. If I set a goal I will achieve this goal no mat­ter what. Now the “no mat­ter what” does not mean I will push peo­ple to the ground and walk all over them to achieve this goal, it means I will work hard, play nice and in the end obtain my goal. If you are a dream­er what are your dreams? Is one of your dreams to break into this indus­try? If so, what is hold­ing you back? What is the one thing keep­ing you from clear­ing this hur­dle? If it is fear, well this is not a good enough answer. Fear is a wast­ed emo­tion and every­one has fear when break­ing into the unknown. Is it rejec­tion? Rejec­tion is going to hap­pen there is noth­ing you can do about it no one likes rejec­tion you just have to get thick skinned. I have been reject­ed many times but nev­er let that stop me. I just keep on going. Okay, so is it self doubt? Well we all have self doubt at one time or anoth­er so again, you are going to have to get over this one. It’s not a good enough rea­son to not clear the hur­dle. Are you start­ing to real­ize I wont accept any answer for not at least try­ing? The best thing you can do if you real­ly want some­thing is to jump in feet first, take off run­ning, work hard and try, try and try again until you achieve the suc­cess you are aim­ing for.

I sug­gest you start with baby steps, my cousin David has a say­ing that I love and feel is so true, “Inch by inch, life’s a cinch. Yard by yard life is hard.” If you want to write and cre­ate a book but have nev­er worked a day in this indus­try well this goes under the yard by yard cat­e­go­ry. First you want to start with cre­at­ing a blog, post to online gal­leries, get a fol­low­ing, try out for Design Teams like Kit Clubs and Man­u­fac­tur­ers. You must have a fol­low­ing. All these steps go under the inch by inch cat­e­go­ry. If you just set and achieve one goal after anoth­er before you know it you will be right where you want to be.…

And today, I am right where I want to be… head­ing to ScrapFest to teach class­es and do book sign­ings. I start­ed out on the inch by inch path… Blog “It’s In The Details” — Cocoa Daisy Kit Club — Maya Road Man­u­fac­tur­er- Mem­o­ry Mak­ers Mas­ter — Teach­ing at Scrap­book Stores & Retreats — Host­ing Online Work­shops — Wrote & Cre­at­ed my 1st book “Delight In The Details” — Wrote & Cre­at­ed my 2nd Book “Delight In The Sea­sons” — and I’m hap­py to say anoth­er goal is about to be obtained which I can­not wait to tell you all about.

So what are you wait­ing for… get going because there are goals to set and goals to achieve. I know you can do it. I believe in you.
