When I talk to people about chasing their dreams or making big changes in their life, there’s one phrase that I hear more than anything: “I can’t chase my dreams because…………………” After this phrase there are many, many reasons why it’s now possible.
Look, I get it, I have been there and said that. However, I think we under-estimate the power of research, a good plan and taking small steps. You can make these big changes in your life, they just won’t happen overnight like we want them to.
I have proof for you today! I had the privilege to interview an amazing man who is chasing his dreams even though he is already RETIRED! Yep, you heard me right, he’s already going through the “rat race” and instead of playing golf all day, he’s chasing his dream of writing.
He has taken a huge step and published his first book, but you’ll hear about it in this interview:
First, you can find author Ernie Wenk at his website . He has a great blog and is a wonderful writer. Next, check out his first book, which you can find on Smashwords here. Ernie was kind enough to send me a copy and I’m really enjoying reading the book, it’s right up my alley! It’s very well written.
You can also connect with Ernie on Facebook here.
How about you?
I know life can be rough sometimes or feel like it all the time, right? I get that but life is short, really short if you think about it. We only get one life and before you can even look up it’s gone.
Now I’m not trying to scare you but after having my father die last year unexpectedly I WAS scared. I would rather die knowing I tried to chase my dream then die knowing I didn’t try because I was too busy watching TV.
I hope and pray that you have started chasing a dream or making a major life change this year, that’s my goal in writing, to help inspire that change. Just keep your eye on the prize and take it one step at a time.
Before you know it, you’ll look up and you’ll be living out your dream, just like Ernie!
So be honest: Have you ever made an excuse to not change something you know or wanted to change?
