Last week I shared LeeAnn’s amazing story about how she is leaving her NYC cubicle-job behind and setting sail for Scotland – the land of her dreams.
I received an overwhelming amount of feedback to that post.
There is something about a seemingly-impossible dream coming true that really speaks to us.
Dreams that come true are inspiring in the best possible way.
Most people don’t know this but a little while I ago I started a Top Secret Advanced Practice group for my students and clients who want to take things further.
It’s called Advanced Creative Badassery because it takes a total badass to deal with the obstacles in your way and life your life on your terms and bring your dreams to life.
This group is a catalyst for Magic Things and Dreams Come True.
So last Tuesday Miss Effy Wild (pajama clad mystic den mama from The Glitterhood) announced to the Advanced Creative Badasses that she had made a music video for Rev. Michael Beckwidth’s new album.
(That’s THE Michael Beckwidth. If you don’t know him, you should.)
And not only that – she was going to make sure The Rev Himself knew about it.
Bravery to the MAX!
And last Wednesday (one day later) this happened. The video ended up on Michael Beckwidth’s tumblr.
And Michael Beckwidth didn’t just know about the video:
REVEREND MICHAEL BECKWIDTH tweeted and facebooked Effy’s video!
He shared it with thousands and thousands of people.
Seriously. That happened in the span of one day.
Effy acted on her creative impulse and put it out there. She took a risk and a leap and got exactly what she hoped for.
That’s how it works.
You have to take that risk and do the work first.
If you’re waiting for the circumstances of your life to change so that you can start working on your dreams you’re always going to be waiting.
(Note that Effy didn’t wait for Michael Beckwidth to ask her to make him a video.)
Magic things happen when you are committed to doing the work right now.
It doesn’t matter if you have very real obstacles and fears.
It doesn’t matter if you don’t have it all figured out.
It doesn’t matter if you don’t feel ready.
All you need is to be willing to keep putting one foot in front of the other – even when you’re not totally sure of where you’re going.
You need to respect your dreams enough to give them what they need to grow.
Everything is possible but what are you doing about that?
Really, think about that today.
You can start right here, right where you are right now.
If you want some help, get the Creative Dream Incubator.
Seriously! You can do this!
