YOU. Yes, you. I have a challenge for you.

 

Every week, I’ll post a challenge. It can be about anything, on any topic. They will challenge the way you think, the way that you see the world. It will make you think, forcing you to step back and reevaluate. In the end, you may find that it will change your world.

 

Today’s challenge: Start Something

 

Anything. It doesn’t have to be huge. It doesn’t have to mean much. The point is, it means something to YOU. You’re doing something.

 

Always wanted to start a business? Start collecting inventory. Start researching, planning. It may be a few years before you can start the business itself, but at least when you do, you’ll be prepared.

 

Want to start a cause? Start small. Do a fundraiser and collect donations for cancer patients. Join marathons and a relay for life. Volunteer at another organization to gain experience and knowledge.

 

Want to go to school? Start researching now on whatever your major is. Read all you can on the topic. Think of it as your prerequisites. Study, read, prepare.

 

We all have a “someday” dream. We think, “Someday I’ll…” Fill the blank with anything. Start a business, take that trip, do some activity.

 

Problem is, someday dreams tend to stay someday dreams. They’re too huge, too far away. They’re out of reach. We tell ourselves that “Someday…” but then wake up to find that someday has already gone. While you were dreaming about that day, life had flown by.

 

Missed opportunities. Life is full of them. Many of these have to do with our someday dreams. Too busy looking at the far-off dream, we miss the chance of its beginnings.

 

Start by doing something small. Maybe one day, you’ll find yourself doing more. Maybe, just maybe, your dream will be within reach.
