Today I learned that, being EXCITED about my goals and dreams is a vital ingredient in bringing my dreams to fruition.
All too often I hesitate about being excited about my dreams. What if I fail? What if my dreams do not come true? If I allow myself to get excited, if I allow myself to put my whole heart into my goals/dreams/relationships, I might fail and my heart may be decimated. Would it not be better to just put half of my heart into whatever I am trying to accomplish? That way, if the endeavor fails, I still have half my heart.
Brad Barton failed over and over again, but he kept getting back up, and finally reached his goal of breaking a world record in running.
I just listened to this episode of Live On Purpose radio: Getting Better at Getting Better. Dr. Paul? talks with Brad about the struggles he had while pursuing his dream.
