What would you dream, if you had no constraints?
No fear of the opinions of others
No chains to hold your dreams down
Challenge yourself to dream big!
If you're going to invest your life in your dream, first make sure it's awesome and worthy
No dream is too big, no dreamer too small
If people have a low expectations of you
Why would you want to prove them right?
Try this one on for size…
I'll never let my dreams fall below the sky
Eagle was I born and Eagle will I die
Stop taking the easy win. It's easy, because ...
It's not worth much
Which one would you remember more?
Winning an easy race or losing a close one?
Which one would teach you more?
Which one gets you more excited, which one pumps your blood?
Competing against someone you easily crush
Or facing an opponent possibly as good as you with
Equal Intent to Win
Now that'll be a victory worth celebrating!
Challenge yourself. You're stronger than you know. You're worthy of celebration
My Personal journey along this path:
I grew up in a small town in the middle of the Rocky Mountains. Our little town didn't sport a lot of big city trappings
We only had four fast food restaurants
We only had two movie theaters
(One indoor, one outdoor)
But we did have one thing ...
Lots of it!
I learned to ski in my backyard (benefits of growing up on the side of a mountain). My first skis were wooden planks about 12 inches long. They strapped to my sneakers by springs wrapped around my ankle
I was 5 years old
At 10, I started to ski one and only one way. I'd exit the chair lift, drop into a tuck and not stand back up until I was at the bottom of the slope
Tucked into a ball, wind screaming past me, silly grin on my face, and the Ski Patrol chasing me down from behind. I skied so fast, I couldn't hear the screams of "Slow down!". And that's what I told them, every time they caught up to me at the bottom of the mountain
Luckily for me, mountains are big
And I rarely saw the same Ski Patrol officer twice
The Mountain lives by a phrase that directs me still today
"If you're not falling, you're not going fast enough!"
So dream big, fail big and dream big again
