Own Your Dreams

A few years ago, I put myself out there for a new opportunity. Raw vulnerability. Full in. It didn't work out and it felt awful, but at least I put myself out there. So much better than not trying at all. I have learned from it and can wear my bravery badge proudly.

Seth Godin's blog post recently was about declaring what you want to the world. How it increases the chances of reaching that goal but also sets you up for potential disappointment. Most people don't take the chance. You'll never know until you try.

"If you announce what you want, if you are clear about what's on offer, if you set goals...

  • the chances of accomplishing your goal go up, and so does...
  • the chance that you will be disappointed

For many people, apparently, it's better to not get what you want than it is to be disappointed. The resistance is powerful indeed.

Every time you use waffle words, back off from a clear statement of values and priorities and most of all, think about what's likely instead of what's possible, you are selling yourself out. Not just selling yourself out, but doing it too cheaply.

Own your dreams. There is no better way to make them happen." Seth Godin
