How many times per day do you think of something that would make your life, or the lives of others, easier?
You might be at work, or in the kitchen, when the idea to invent something to make some task easier pops into your head.
You might be driving or out for a walk, when you think of the perfect thing to say to someone that could completely change their life or your relationship.
You might be in the shower humming a tune that makes you feel good, yet you are sure you’ve never heard it before…
Every day, you have creative ideas that could change your life and the lives of millions of people, yet you do not act on them to bring them into reality.
There are many reasons we don’t act on these ideas, but most of them boil down to our limiting beliefs about our ability to do it, or the fact that we are do busy and/or complacent with the mundane to spend any time doing something amazing.
Think about this truth: everything you see around you, everything you use, everything you wear… everything started as an idea that popped into somebody’s mind. The only difference between that person’s idea and your ideas is the action that person took to make it a reality.
It doesn’t mean the other people didn’t have the same fears or limiting beliefs as you. It simply means they stepped forward, through the doubts, and took action to create it.
At the time Steve Jobs told his engineers about his idea for the iPhone, they told him many of the technologies needed to create his imaginary device did not exist. He told them to make them exist. He told them, “if I can imagine it, it can be created!”
I believe every idea we have–whether it is to create a product, compose a song, or have a conversation with someone–comes into our consciousness because it is calling to us from our innate ability to bring it into present reality.
Please do yourself, me, and the entire world a favor. Act on as many of your creative ideas as you can. Now!
You have creative ideas that could change your life and the lives of millions of people!
You can listen to me talk more about this on my Life Is A Marathon podcast.
Today, your dreams called and said “follow me!”
They called yesterday and the day before that.
They might not call again tomorrow…
Have you ever had people in your life who consistently reached out to you to see if you wanted to do something with them? Dinner, a movie, go for a jog?
You were too busy, or had something else to do, or you were nervous about fitting in, so you made an excuse and declined the invitations.
They kept calling, kept inviting, kept trying to include you in their lives, but you kept making excuses and kept declining their invitations.
Gradually, those people stopped calling and silently slipped out of your life. It’s not that they got angry with you; they just stopped spending energy to draw you into their worlds. They moved on.
Our dreams are the same as these friends.
Our dreams show up in our imaginations, during the quiet moments, or during conversations with people. They say “come on, let’s do this, it will be fun!”
But you’re too busy, afraid you won’t fit in or it won’t be as fun as it sounds, or you are just too comfortable with the status-quo.
Your dreams will keep calling, keep inviting you to come out and play… for a while.
If you keep saying “no, thank you, not right now” to your dreams, they will gradually stop calling and simply move on to let you stay where you are.
The next time your dreams call, take a deep breath and say “Yes! I’m on my way!”
P.S.: If you could use a little help saying “Yes!” to your dreams, or in helping you clarify what you really want from life, I’m inviting you to participate in a course I’m teaching called “How to Create Your Dream Life.”
Are you living the life of your dreams? Do you have a crystal clear vision for your life–what you want for yourself and for the influence you want to have and the legacy you want to leave for others? If not, you want to take my new 8-week course “How to Create Your Dream Life” This course will give you clarity and help you live every day on purpose.

How does this course work?
I will teach this course over an 8-week period. Each Sunday (starting May 1, 2016) evening, I will upload that week’s video and downloadable worksheets. You may watch the video and work on the lesson at your convenience throughout the week. Each Thursday, at 12-noon Eastern Time, we will have a live video call to discuss that week’s lesson. If you don’t have the ability to join via video, you can also access the live call via telephone. If you are unable to attend the live call, it will be recorded and uploaded to the site for you to watch when you want to. Each lesson will also have its own discussion forum for you to make comments or ask questions of me or other members in the course. This will be a very interactive experience!
