Dreaming is at the heart of disruption. Whether we want to disrupt an industry or our personal status quo, in order to make that terrifying leap from one learning curve to the next, we must dream. The good news is that the causal mechanism for achieving our dreams is always, always, always showing up: and as we show up, our future will too.
As Whitney Johnson points out in this Harvard Business Review blog post, you must always, always show up:
We all dream about winning, but it’s the showing up that counts.
Even though we can’t necessarily control the outcome. Sarah Ban Breathnach said, “When you use expectations to measure a dream’s success, you tie stones around your soul. Dreams may call for a leap of faith, but they set the soul soaring.” There are no regrets when we invest ourselves fully and show up to ourselves. Happily, we get lots of chances. . .
So how are you taking risks and showing up for your life?
