“Your dreams should be so big that you feel guilty for acting small!” – Futurist Jim Carroll
Yes, that’s me way down on that stage, and yes, you do pinch yourself every once in a while!
I have incredible gratitude for the wonderful career that I’ve managed to build over 25 years, spending time on stages worldwide helping people to realize their dreams by aligning to a faster future. And yes. I’m often back stage, looking out, wondering how I ever got here!
When I started speaking to groups, I never imagined that the stages would get more grandiose, and that the audiences would get bigger and bigger. When you are in the wings in Las Vegas, about to walk out in front of 7,000 people, you truly do marvel at the strange twists and turns that life can take.
Somewhere along the way, I realized that some people – not all – were clamouring for insight about the future, and even more important, the attitudes and actions they could adopt to turn it into an opportunity, not a threat.
So along with the detailed trends analysis I would do from the stage, I would also mix in a good hard dose of motivational and inspiration wisdom – after all, you won’t have much of a future if you can’t go at it with the right mindset!
Such as this gem. What will you do today to establish big dreams?
