Creators live on the leading edge of different. Dare to dream, then make it so. Many people dream but few really believe in their dreams.
To live a different life than we’ve ever lived before can seem unimaginable to most. However, that gap in belief and faith is remedial through the daily practice of visioning, setting goals and then working to meet those goals.
To do anything we’ve never done before requires mental fortitude and emotional resilience. You’ll need to build that vision mentally and imbue it with passion nurtured daily through setting and achieving the goals needed to make it so.
Do the work that most will not do and your dreams will unfold before you.
One step at a time. One day at a time. To live the life of your dreams requires an uncommon willingness to work uncommonly hard… to do uncommon work that most are unwilling to do. Few are willing to put forth the work, the effort, and the time. Are you?
Here’s the thing: if you don’t, at the end of a year or five or ten, will you look back with regret? And if you do, will you ever be sorry for the effort you put into trying?
To live an uncommon life requires uncommon effort.
Dare to dream, then do the work.

The Creator’s Journey Can Be Lonely
Your path may be lonely… but only in the beginning. Friends will want you to go out and play with them. That strengthens their choice to play, but weakens your resolve to do… to be… to make your dreams come true.
Creators live on the leading edge of different.

You will be tempted to go instead of work… to play instead of create. Of course there are times for that. We all need a break. We all need friends and fun. But like a muscle at the gym, it is pushing beyond what’s comfortable that causes a muscle to grow strong.
In fitness, pushing beyond what’s comfortable makes you fit for your jeans.
For creators, pushing beyond what’s comfortable makes you fit for your dreams! 💪🏼 😎 💪🏼

Connect with those who will hold you to a higher standard… with those who are doing uncommon work through uncommon effort and you will live the uncommon life that you dare to dream.
The choices you make and the actions you take determine your direction daily.
If you are not willing to risk the unusual, you will have to settle for the ordinary. ~Jim Rohn, entrepreneur, author, motivational speaker, 1930-2009
