In my life I have had many dreams. Some have come true and some are still fantasies, but knowing by putting yourself out there and believing in yourself is the biggest part of the equation.
I never thought a year and a half ago, I would complete any Marathon, yet last December I completed the Honolulu Marathon in a respectable 5 hours and 33 minutes. I never dreamt I would train for a Triathlon, yet this year I completed two and on my 48th birthday I actually placed 3rd for the Honolulu Triathlon Sprint in my age division. I didn't do it to win, I began my training to learn and have fun. Along the way I met people, I experienced an incredible change in my health and my life and I continue to have fun. I am currently in my 2nd year of Marathon training and my goal is to finish 30-45 minutes faster this year than last.
I shared this incredible experience with my son (that's us on the left).
What I'm saying to you is, choose your dream. The life you would lead if you didn't do real estate for a living. We all know it's a full plate, but unless you explore those little adventures you'll always wonder "What if?".
Last year I began an adventure into writing. Fiction of course! Which is why I am not seen on this blog as much as before. Out of that writing group came 2 referrals. People who got to know the real me and appreciated that side of me. I made new friends, many of whom I would have never met had I not pursued a dream.
My latest adventure is in the realm of acting. After having done my first HGTV show, My House is Worth What? I was bitten by the bug. I audtioned for my first paying role, landed it and shot a pilot... oh and I met a few more people who are now clients.
I'm a full time realtor with part time passions that help me in my business while I continue to help others. buying and selling their biggest investments. Living my dreams with no regrets, and a lot of new friends I might not have otherwise met. It's magic!
I challenge you to do the same ~ incorporate your own dreams into life and make them your reality.
