Live the Life of Your Dreams

I started this blog to help others live the life of their dreams.

There is nothing like going after your dreams.

Motivate us when we don't want to do the work,
Keep us going when we think we are stuck,
Help us see the future more clearly,
Inspire us to stay to our purpose,
Give us reasons to succeed, and
Make the journey exciting.

I hope these will help you live the life of your dreams, inspire You to become a better person, and add value to your life.

If you want to sign up for weekly Motvational emails, just email me at:

I also have a book series available called "CREATE YOUR DREAMS" series. If you are interested, please visit

Enjoy and God Bless You

How are you developing your thoughts? Are you reading good books? Are you listening to powerful and uplifting audio programs? Are you talking to those who can show you a better and brighter future? Or, are you succumbing to what society thinks of you? Make your own mark on society, don’t let it mark you.

Your thoughts control your destiny. Your thoughts control more than you could possibly imagine. If you think positively, people notice. The opposite is also true. People notice if you are having a tough time. Even if you don’t say anything, people can look at you and tell. Many times people can see your thoughts by just looking at you. Are your thoughts helping you get to where you want, or are they hindering you? Our thoughts control our future.

Frank Outlaw wisely said, “Watch your thoughts; they become words. Watch your words; they become actions. Watch your actions; they become habits. Watch your habits; they become character. Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.” It doesn’t happen overnight, but your most dominating thoughts will control your destiny. Realizing this, what is the outlook for your future? Bright or bleak? Are your thoughts guiding you towards where you want to be, or are they holding you back?

I hope you pay close attention to your thoughts. I hope you realize that your thoughts affect more areas of your life than anything else. Our thoughts are one of the few things in this world that we can continually control. We can’t control other people, but we can control our thoughts towards others. It was Eleanor Roosevelt who said, “Nobody can make you feel inferior without your consent.” Where have your thoughts taken you? Much more importantly: Where will your thoughts take you? Your past thoughts have created your present; your present thoughts will create your future. Create the future of your dreams by thinking great thoughts today!

Determination and persistence are common traits of those who are successful. Very few traits are more important than determination and persistence. Calvin Coolidge wisely said, “Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius is not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan ‘press on’ has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.”

Talent alone will not take you to where you want to be. You must be determined to put in the work. You must be determined to finish what you started. We must realize there are, and always will be, difficulties along the way. We must realize the journey will seldom be easy. We need to be determined, and sometimes stubborn, about finishing what we’ve started. We must never quit.

Genius is great to have, but it is worth nothing if it isn’t being used. Do you know someone who is extraordinarily smart or talented, but doesn’t use these gifts? It is a shame. I am not the smartest or most talented, but I am disciplined. I am persistent. I am dedicated to my goals and my dreams. Are you? Are you determined to become successful? Are you sick of being average? Are you fed up with the fact that you might not be where you want to be? How will you live the life of your dreams? What steps will you take to move in the direction of your dreams? How will you persist along the way?

Those who have the most education aren’t always those who are the most successful. A degree isn’t a requisite for success; determination and persistence are. People fall into the trap of thinking their education will get them a job. Approximately 90,000 people graduate a year with a college degree. What makes you different? Employers aren’t looking for only a degree; they are looking for determination and persistence. What can you do today to show them that you are determined and that you persist?

I hope you develop a fierce determination for life. I hope you never give up. We give up when our determination falters. Nobody gives up when they are fully committed and determined. Hold tight your determination. Embrace your excitement for your goals and your dreams. I hope you persist through the tough moments in your life. Realize that nobody is out to get you. Difficult situations happen to everybody. Simply remember the more difficulty we face, the more chances we have to grow. Be determined to hit the goals and live the dreams of your life. When difficulty shows its ugly face, persist with a purpose. Those who give up lose their determination, or their willingness to persist, or both. Embrace the difficulty. Hold tight to your determination. Learn to persist. These qualities will bring you to the land of your dreams.

We don’t dream big dreams because we want to let ourselves down. We don’t dream big dreams because we like disappointment. We don’t set big goals because we love the bitter taste of failure. We dream big dreams and set big goals because we want to truly live our lives. We want to reach what sometimes seems unattainable. We want to live a bigger life than what we are currently living. We want to become not only successful but significant. That is why we dream big dreams. That is why we set enormous goals.

No matter what difficulties you are facing, always remember it’s possible if you believe. No matter what you are going through, or what your situation is, remember it’s possible to live the life of your dreams. One of the finest acceptance speeches I’ve ever heard is Russell Crowe accepting his Oscar for his role in Gladiator. He said, “Dreams like this at times seem like they are ludicrous and completely unattainable, but this moment is directly connected to those childhood imaginings. For anybody who is on the down side of advantage and relying purely on courage… it’s possible.”

He dreamt about being an actor. He dreamt as a child of winning an Oscar. He thought it was ludicrous at times. Others thought it was completely unattainable, but he persisted. He endured. He was resilient. That is the way we live the life of our dreams. We need to persist, no matter what difficulties we are facing. We need to endure. We need to be resilient. What complicated circumstances are you going through right now? Often, we know we are on the right track if we are running into challenges. We need to remember that the most demanding of circumstances are the best chances for us to grow as people. When we endure times of difficulty, our character develops.

I hope you keep moving in the direction of your wildest dreams. I hope you realize that the most ludicrous and seemingly unattainable dreams and goals are those that will develop you the most as a person. Don’t let roadblocks get in your way. Realize that the biggest goals are those that will challenge us the most. When we are challenged we have the choice to either give up or get better. I hope you choose to get better. The biggest goals are also those that mean the most when they are accomplished. Set big goals. Put in the work. Persist. Endure. Be resilient. Put in the work and the endurance today so you can live the tomorrow of your dreams.

What do you want for your future? Do you want something beyond what you currently have? Do you want to be someone more than who you currently are? Do you want to grow? Do you want to succeed? If we want to become more tomorrow, we have to start with today. So many people go through their lives waiting for tomorrow to be different. The only problem is that they don’t change today. I am willing to wait for tomorrow to be different, but I realize I must make the change today.

We can’t expect to stay the same today, and have tomorrow to be any different. Patience and waiting are difficult. Both of these are tremendous assets. They aren’t beneficial, however, when we are waiting for something to happen and we don’t take action. Jim Rohn said, “The next ten years will be the same as the last ten years, if you don’t make any changes in your life.” Why don’t people realize that? Why do they think they can go about living their lives the same every day and expect change?

If we want tomorrow to be different, we must start with today. Tomorrow will never be here. Yesterday is gone. We can’t live for the tomorrows of our life. We have to live today. We need excitement and anticipation for tomorrow, but we can’t wait to act until tomorrow. We need to learn from our past but we can’t live in our past. You are at where you are at because of your past; that doesn’t mean you have to stay there. We don’t have to like where we are at, but if we do nothing about it, then we are choosing to stay there in our future.

I hope you can make the changes today. I hope you can learn from the yesterdays of your life. I hope you can dream, plan and anticipate your future. It all boils down to what you do today. Successful people are those who take advantage of today. Significant people are those who help others take advantage of today. Become both successful and significant. Develop the future of your choice. You might be in one spot today, but you can change all of that for tomorrow. You can wake up in Japan tomorrow, but you have to get on the plane today. You can be successful tomorrow but you have to start today. You can be in shape tomorrow, but you need to start today. It’s all about today. What are you doing today? What actions can you take today? What steps towards your future will you take today? Don’t wait until tomorrow; take advantage of today!
