Week 16: DREAMS
What did you dream about when you were a kid? What did you want to be when you grew up? Oh, it could have been anything, and maybe what you dreamt changed every day or week…because you could let your imagination soar. There are probably some that knew what they wanted as a kid and grew up to achieve exactly that. Then there are those who grew up, got throat punched and body slammed by life a few times, buckled down, and did what was required to survive. These days we tend to call that #adulting.
When was the last time anyone asked you about your dreams? When was the last time you asked yourself about your dreams? Do you even remember them? I can remember one time telling my BFF ( Holly Pomrening ) that I have a treasure box locked away in my heart that holds my dreams. They were on hold, but I kept them safe.
I recently attended a convention in Las Vegas where dreams and goals were a regular part of the conversation. You may have heard that I’m involved in this industry called multi-level marketing. I have been for several years. A lot of people don’t understand what I do. There are even people who make fun of me…both behind my back and to my face. I’m not sure when it’s socially acceptable to make fun of someone’s way of earning an income for their family right to their face, but I digress. I’m pretty tough and have pretty thick skin…and laugh all the way to the bank.
To get started, I didn’t have a huge financial investment I had to make like opening a brick and mortar business. I don’t have to stock my shelves and garage with inventory. I get to feel better, spend time with people, help them feel better, earn an income, and help others earn an income too. I get to dream and talk with others about their dreams, then we lock arms and go about reaching those dreams. If that’s wrong, I don’t wanna be right.
