Dare to believe. Dare to dream. Dare to be different.

 

This is a recent post I made on my personal blog that I adapted for DS.  Hope you find it helpful/encouraging and not too ....  

Today I am daring to believe in something greater than myself.  I am dreaming in such a way that said dreams will change the automotive world.  I am daring to be different and not go with the flow.  I am daring to be “me” no matter what the cost.  I pray and hope that these words might be able to capture these thoughts bouncing around between my ears and heart.

Today I am filled with excitement, dreams, passions, and an unspeakable joy that is pouring out of me. I am dreaming of tomorrow and the opportunities that sit and wait before me.  The automotive world is moving all around me; I just want to shake it up a little bit.

I am not sure how that shaking will all take place, but I *know it will happen.  My dream is to impact those people around me in such a way that my fingerprints of love, compassion, caring, leadership, passion, generosity, and my encouraging spirit will forever change those I come into contact with.  

Life and those in our dealerships lives have a way of knocking us down but as we are picking ourselves off the ground our vision becomes ever so slightly clearer.  The wisdom that is learned from being on the ground is forever invaluable.  The scars on our wounded spirit will forever be a reminder of that times when we were down, but the fact that we are now standing up reminds us that they are just that…scars.

Over the past year multiple people have asked me what my hopes and dreams are both personally and professionally…and to be honest it was very hard for me to answer at times.  Even right now I don’t have a clear “vision” of what those dreams are exactly, but I do know this; I am moving towards making those unknown dreams a reality. 

Are you dreaming today?  If not, why?  What’s holding you back?  What’s keeping you from moving towards what you have always wanted, hoped for, or desired? 

Today history has yet to be written for tomorrow.  Why not take out a pen and starting crafting your great masterpiece of life and begin to allow yourself to dream?
