If you have a dream, follow it as this is where your heart is and where you talents are most productive.

Mark Twain said “It is the things we (did not do) in life that leave us with the most regrets.”

Can you imagine our world if Bill Gates had decided to become an attorney instead of following his entrepreneur dream?

At the 2005 Stanford University Commencement Address by Steve Jobs, he ended his speech with the admonition: "Stay hungry - stay foolish."

Bill Gates must have seemed foolish to his peers, family and friends when he dropped out of college to follow “His” dream.

It will certainly seem foolish to your friends and family to leave their agenda to work on what you do best and forsake the dreams that "others" may have for you.

It seems to be a common push when parents and teachers stress the importance of working on that poor grade on the report card instead of helping in the development of a child’s core strength, the subject where the student gets "A's" – the evidence proven by strong grades in a particular subject.

The most successful people in the world got there by doing what they love and what they intuitively were attracted to.

They were so focused as to seem myopic to the point that their lives seemed unbalanced because they were so focused on this love that the work seemed effortless.

Understand that the destination always comes. Time makes sure of that and the dream is the blueprint or map to that destination.

Five, ten and twenty years will go by and that time of your life will be gone. It is up to you and only you to determine the steps taken today that will lead you to your dream tomorrow.

No dream = No planned destination will be arrived at and you will be like a ship on the sea under no power. Subject to the whims of the winds and currents and possibly crashed onto the rocks somewhere.

Make a plan, be brave enough to join the dance, have fun with the journey and the processes as you work toward this most important discovery of your life’s purpose.

Start as young as you can and as soon as you can and the dream can and will happen.

Bill Gates started his dream journey before he was 20, Steve Jobs in his teens and Dave Thomas started in his middle ages.

Colonel Sanders began franchising Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurants, starting at age 65, using $105 from his first Social Security check to fund visits to potential franchisees

Grandma Moses was born in 1860, raised her family and held her first one-woman Art Show in New York City in 1940 and immediately she became famous.

It doesn't matter when you start - It matters “that” you start.

It matters that you start today, go for the dream of your life and enjoy the purpose and meaning of the process along the way.
