I get it. That’s why I want to invite you to consider a couple of things that has made a difference for me lately.

Inner peace and God.
Finding Happiness – The Journey Starts with Permission
Fast-forward, almost a year later, my husband ranks in the 75th percentile worldwide in his age group for the CrossFit Open.? That?s pretty damn good for someone who has never done it before!? So when we looked at what happened, it had nothing to do with me.? When I said what I said, it was because we watched the same CrossFit Games on Netflix over and over again that I felt like he wanted to be one of them.? But what happened to him after hearing those words was that he finally felt free enough himself to give himself permission to dream and fantasize about becoming a CrossFit athlete without feeling about it.
Right now what I’m clear on is that before you can fail, you have to have an idea that can actually fail.? Do you see how silly it is to think that you’re going to fail and feel all bad about yourself when nothing has happened yet?? It’s crazy!? You have to create it in your head first before you can test it out.? Who cares what other people think about your idea.? So what if they think your idea is stupid?? It’s really none of your business what they think of it.? Your responsibility is to have your idea come to fruition.? It is all possible.
First, you have to create it in your head before it can become a reality…you know, dream about it.
My husband trains to failure six days a week with the help of his coaches.? I say he trains to failure because the look on his face every time he comes home is the look of pain and confusion sprinkled with hint regret and a dash of misery. ? I think it’s crazy but he does not care what I or other thinks about his insane training.? How do I know that?? Simple.? That saying “if you can’t beat them, join them” seems to be his theme.? He has inspired others to do his “athlete’s training.” ?He even inspired me to go once and I quickly realized I am not an athlete of his caliber.? That was his dream and not mine and I’m totally ok with that.
One of the greatest speeches ever made was titled “I have a dream…” by Martin Luther King and that dream altered the world forever.? Maybe your dream is the next best thing. We won’t know until it’s here.
>So what are you waiting for?? Dream on!
