In 2012 – Go For It!

In 2012 – Go For It!

Recently, while talking with my 7 year old grandson – he said, very matter-of-factly, that when he grows up he is going to play football for the Buffalo Bills or maybe play baseball for the Red Wings.

At 7, he believes this – he’s not limiting his dreams to the realities of his skills or the improbable chances of making it into a major league team.  Such undaunted determination is not just heartwarming to this grandma but awe-inspiring into the possibilities of dreams, goals and hopes.  When and Why, as adults, do we become so practical and dismissive as to forget our dreams and limit our reach for the stars?

I recently saw a quote from contemporary poet, Kurtis Lamkin:  “Believing is all a child does for a living.”

As adults, we should try to remember what it’s like to see the world through those childhood eyes!  Whether it’s record breaking sales and growth that you aspire to or a long ago buried dream  – don’t weigh down the goal with practicalities and realizations – go for it!

    Thank you for your post Kathy! I have a painting that quotes, “Shoot for the moon, even if you miss you’ll land among the stars.” As adults we limit our reach for the stars out of fear of failure. We believe that if we can’t be sure of a successful outcome, the risk is not worth it. However, aren’t we always telling our children that the success is in trying no matter what happens? So–the next time you are afraid of failure–shoot for the moon, because even if you miss, you’re still a winner!
