I was speaking with a young man who was doing something familiar. He was living in two realities:
1) He had finished school; one reality was pursuing his dream career.
2) While he worked toward his dream, he earned a job certification to pay the bills.
During our conversation, he said something that got my attention. “I’m hoping I can get a good job supporting my dream.”
My ears perked up. Years of Coaching allow me to hear de-focused and dream-erasing thoughts loud and clear.
Yes, everybody needs to pay their bills. However, what you focus on is what you get.
When the certainty of earning income becomes your focus, dreams disappear. What you focus on is what you get.
Most folks don’t notice their dreams are gone for twenty years. What you focus on is what you get.
Focus your mind and actions on turning your dreams into reality. Whatever you do to earn a living falls into the category of necessary and temporary.
