We live in a world that wants the best of everything, and wants it NOW. It’s true that we only have one life here on earth and that we need to strive towards our dreams – achieving them as quick as possible. There’s no time to waste.
I was one of those who fell into this “NOW” trap. My desire was (and still is) to encourage those who feel lost and alone. Those who feel unloved. It’s a great and worthwhile passion but it won’t just happen by putting a few nice things on social media. I am unknown to so many people and the only way that anybody would be willing to listen to me, is if they knew my heart. The only way that is going to happen is when others see that I practise what I preach. That the things I tell them are the same things that I apply in my life.
That all takes time and hard work. Whynot IMPACT is something I started to reach out to people who need that little bit of encouragement to get them moving towards their dreams. I am busy writing a book that will be part of the process of encouragement and support in schools. There are big plans for great things but it means a lot of groundwork.
So, when you are unknown like me, don’t allow the mountain that stands between you and your dream to overwhelm you. There’s no better day than today to take that first step. It will be long and tiring but it’s so much better to scale a mountain and see all the promises on the other side, than to sit in comfort, wondering what could have been.
Start as an unknown entity and finish by leaving an unforgettable legacy that will live on long after you are gone. That’s what I’m doing and it’s a great journey!
