Monday Motivation Dreaming...

"Some dreams come while we sleep, and there are others that grow in our hearts and nurtured by our souls, until we make them a reality." 



2013 is the time to start anew.
The year where everything is possible. 
Where dreams come true.  

 


What are you dreaming about today? 

 Maybe it's time to shift your thought
from why I can't... to why not!  
  
 

The possibilities are endless. 
                                       The sky is limitless.

  1. One of the things about being human in this world is having a negative if not down right evil voice inside of a person that says, "No you can't" "You can't afford it" "you don't have the smarts or ability to pursue it." These are very dangerous thoughts that hold us back. The truth is we are given challenges in life that are not impossible to overcome. Only if we could be over on the other side of that fence where the AA 777 is.. Yes. And yes all of us CAN do it. When there is a will there is a way. And that's my phrase for the day.

    1. Jeremy, unlike stories... where there is always one antagonist... we have two antagonists in our life. Those people outside telling us we can't... and those voices inside agreeing with them.

      We have control of those internal voices. All we have to do is say... why not? There is always a way. And I love your phrase for the day.

      Thank you for the great comment!

  2. It's a stunning perfect winters day in Florida - low temperatures - cloudless blue sky - I'd so much rather be flying (have to get someone to take me though) or sitting at the airport with my camera - than being stuck in the office working - oh to win the lottery and get to enjoy those dreams - but - back to the grindstone :)

    1. How beautiful! I'm sitting in the foggy day in Seattle... imagining the view on top. All I can say is... buy that lottery ticket! I am.
      Thanks for the comment and enjoy those blue skies.

  4. It's definitely time, and it's never too late! I love today's motivation. This is something that I've been embracing since giving up my career to be a full time author. And I'm loving it!

  6. I have a dream... That one day I can make history in Aviation and open a Flight Academy that would open doors for future pilots, graduate them as "on-demand" for our industry, improve safety and make dreams come true. I have a dream!

    1. Lilly, just follow your heart and all will be great. Nervous... I know. Kind of like being naked on the side of the road... but all is good. You'll be a smash. Best of luck. Keep following those dreams. And I suspect you will be creating a few wet ones for some. It's all good!!

  9. I've always felt confident that I can do anything. Somethings may take longer, but if I remain determined (even if not actively) I know that I will succeed. This is a great way to begin this week. Even though I like to call myself an "Eternal Optimist," even I need to the reminder kick in the posterior sometimes to refocus me. Mahalo!

    1. Oh.... all the eternal optimists need to hear this stuff over and over. It's like training for a marathon. We can never hear enough. And we're all on the same team and help and support each other. I know you are going to accomplish all your dreams!!! You're awesome!! Thank you for the comment!

  11. in my mind i can immagine an infinity freeway.. with many stops each one of them is a weekly day..but once we reach the end.. it can be also the beginning..."Sunday-Monday"
    i love how we can order our life.. with days - hours - week - months - years - and we are everytime in continue evolution and change... the nature can change , the earth can rotate a bit less and mantain it balance, the people chance but ....Monday can not change with age , it is like a dream to reach every week which follow us for all life.
