Something Big Happens...

Something really big happens when you are brave enough to say out loud & maybe for the very first time: this is what I want for my life.

Iím not sure of the exact mechanics of it. Maybe it has something to do with physics or the earthís rotational force. Maybe it has to do with solar interference or the underlying movement of tectonic plates. I suppose it could even have something to do with these strange weather patterns weíve been having and a butterfly flapping its wings in Indonesia. Ashton Kutcher movies taught me that.

But the point is, something shifts when you are willing to acknowledge a dream. Your dream. It changes things. And if Iím being really honest, I should go ahead and tell you that I donít really believe that shift has anything to do with tectonic plates. I believe that shift is in you.

Because when you are brave enough to speak a dream out loud to even just one other person, suddenly itís out there. In the world. And thereís no turning back. Because now whether you go for that dream or donít go for it, the one thing you can never do again is pretend like it never existed. That this thing wasnít something you had once hoped for your life. No longer will you be able to say things like ďMe? Oh no, me Iím fine. Thereís nothing else I want.Ē Because once itís out there, when you make the choice not to do anything about it.... now youíre making the choice to turn your back on your dream.

And that changes everything.



**HUGE thanks to Liz & Ryan for putting this together from the What's Next Tour: Ten People, Ten Dreams spoken out loud. Can't wait to see what each and every one of you do with it! To read more about the project, head on over to Liz & Ryan's blog HERE

I know it can be really hard to wrap your head around the idea that just saying something out loud can make any kind of difference. But do me this favor: be willing to take a chance. Be wiling to put it out there. I dare you to prove me wrong. Tell me: What is that you want for your life? Be brave. Put it in the comments. And then we can all hold each other accountable.

Let's do this.
