TURNING DREAMS INTO REALITY: What if you couldn’t fail?


Like most writers, I am fairly introspective. I spend time thinking about who I am, what made me this way, and where I’m heading. I have learned that we need to spend time thinking about our dreams, and finding ways to make them a reality. If you find yourself not pursuing your dreams, I encourage you to try working your way through “The Artist’s Way” by Julia Cameron. It is a revealing journey. It taught me that I can make my dreams a reality, and I learned a lot about myself in the process.

One thought I have pondered recently is this – What three things would I do if I knew I could not fail?  1) I would quit my job and I would spend more time writing. 2) I would open a scrapbook store (my favorite stores are the Scrapbook Store & More in Mexico, Missouri and Soul Sentiments in Millersburg, Missouri). 3) I would get my pilot’s license.

I am interested in hearing YOUR three things. Email me or post a comment and tell me your three things. I’ll discuss your responses in a future post. But first . . .  now that you’ve decided what three things you would do, it’s time to take action. Take a moment to consider these things. What can you do to incorporate these things into the coming week? You have 7 days, and 24 hours in each day. Surely you can devote one or two hours to one of these things. For instance, I plan to spend an hour today scrapbooking. Sure, I need to bless my house (for those of you who know Flylady, you know exactly what I’m talking about).  And laundry needs to be done. And I need . . . well, you know how it goes. But I can spare one hour to pursue my dream. That’s all I’m asking. One hour. Are you seriously going to tell me that you are so busy this week that you can’t spend ONE measly hour on your dreams?

I didn’t think so. :o)

Plan your week. Make time for your dreams. They deserve your time and attention.

  1. I wholeheartedly agree with your number 1 – it would be mine too! If only I could drop out of the rat race and pen my own amazing bestseller!!! I’d also start an animal rescue shelter, and a homeless shelter… With the profits of my best selling novels of course 🙂 Pilot license – very interesting… I think I’d be too scared of being in that cockpit and watching the ground grow smaller and smaller beneath me… Makes my chest tight just to think about it! Good luck with those dreams anyway!

    • I’d be a little scared to fly a plane, too . . . but the idea intrigues me. Love your idea of the animal rescue center. I’ve always said that if I win the lottery, I’m going to build a big resort for homeless dogs and cats. Good luck with your dreams!
