As a child, we all held dreams and we fiercely believed them to be true. And then somewhere along the way, we forget about these dreams. We let them go. The good news is that it is never too late. Tomorrow is another day. Right now is an ideal time to blow new life into your dreams.
“Hello,” I wave at the Doctor through the webcam. “First hick-ups with the au-pair. She wanted to go to her friends in Sint-Niklaas tonight and I said no. And she picks up Willem far too late.”
“Put your foot down,” is all the Doctor replies to me. He is sitting there smiling at me in total and utter calmness. Love that feeling. It’s so simple.
“Sounds easy,” I reply as it dawns on me that the situation really is easy.
And just like that, the ease of saying “no” and ending a situation right there, it is just as easy and simple to pick up your dreams, dust them off and get going to becoming that better version of yourself.
No matter what your dream is, be very specific about it. I want you to see it vividly in your mind’s eye. I want you to want it badly and to believe you can achieve it. Next think out a plan how you are going to get there. This plan doesn’t have to be detailed. You might not even know exactly how you are going to get there. But you will have an inkling of an idea how you can get started on it. Start now. Take that first step. The rest will follow.
