Got Curiosity?

So last week I got an email from a young lady, she so kindly asked…

“So I was reading some of your blog's posts, and I just had two questions. What exactly is it that you want from life? And, what do you mean by you "dream big"?”

My first reaction was shock. I guess I just wasn’t expecting someone to email me and ask a couple of question. Then I started to think. This young lady is destined for greatness! She wants greatness in her life and she was just wondering how others try to achieve greatness as well. It makes perfect sense. Well, I went on to reply, saying…

Question 1; What exactly is it that you want from life?
I just want to do all things that I thought I would never be able to do. Like growing up, I thought I wanted to be a basketball star..and I kind of did that in college. But I want more than just that. I want to write a book, I want to give back in anyway shape or form, I want to help my family and friends, and most importantly I want to help people realize that they can do anything if you set your mind to it.

Question 2: What do you mean by you "dream big"?
Dream big means DREAM BIG!! Like sometimes we dream and we take things out of our dream. Why not leave everything in the dream and see how far you can go. I feel like the biggest obstacle is in our head (our own doubt), and after we get over that, nothing can stop us.

She then went and replied to me saying…
Yeah, apparently we are bound by speech, you know, as in we say "I can't do this...I can't do that..." So, if you believe you can't do this or that then you can't because that's what you set your limits to. There wasn't really a reason besides pure curiosity. I just like learning what drives determined people.

Why aren’t more people curious these days? When we see people where we want to be…why don’t we ask them how they go there? Doesn’t it make perfect sense?

Well…to the lady that sent me this email to me, you inspired me to do a spoken word called “Dream BIG” After I finish it, I want it to be a part of my motivational speaking that I plan to do. You will be the first person that I show it to.

To all my readers… What are you doing to get to where you want to be?

T*A*N*K’in and make it a LIFEstyle!
