Your Dreams Live on the Leading Edge of Different
Many people dream but few really believe in their dreams. Yet if any before you have wrestled their way into the limelight of their dreams… and clearly many have, then you can too. Dare to dream, then make it so.
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.
“If you’re at home and you’re sitting on your couch and you’re watching this right now, all I have to say is this is hard work. I have worked hard for a long time, and it’s not about winning. What it’s about is not giving up. If you have a dream, fight for it. There’s a discipline for passion. It’s not about how many times you get rejected, or you fall down and get beaten up, but how many times you stand up and are brave and you keep on going.”SOURCE: YouTube – “Shallow” from “A Star Is Born” wins Best Original Song

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 required to bring their dreams to life. 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 for not trying? And if you do work hard now to pursue your passion and check off your goals one at a time, will you ever be sorry for the effort you put into it?
Highly unlikely. We never regret putting forth the effort to be our best, for it is as much about who we become from the effort than the specific goal.
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.
~LeAura Alderson, iCreateDaily.com®
You will be tempted to hang out with friends 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 Others Who Dare to Dream
Know that you’re not alone. There’s a rising body of creators and entrepreneurs who are forging their way as you are, working hard for a better life.
But it’s true that they are fewer and farther between, because most won’t put in the work. That’s what makes it a dream… that’s what makes it uncommon. And that’s exactly what makes it worth your while.
Connect with those who reinforce your dreams… with those who believe in you and your ability to achieve, even when you doubt yourself. 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.
“Dare to dream then make your dreams come true.
You’re the only one who can do that for you.”
