Not sure about you, but I’ve been feeling a bit lonely lately. Then I realized why: I’m not following Dream Doer Rule #5: BE INVOLVED.
See, I’ve been so caught up in my writing projects, working my job at Starbucks and keeping up with my workout routine that I haven’t made time for my friends. In other words, I’ve been so involved in my own life that I haven’t had given myself a chance to be involved in your life by posting to this blog. Sorry!
Now I have been doing what I dream because I’ve been writing my movie script (and a non-fiction book for you).
But being a Dream Doer isn’t just about doing what you dream. It’s also about helping other people do what they dream. You do that by reaching out to your family and friends, spending time with them, encouraging them and showing them how much you care.
It’s about being active in your school, your church and your community. You do that by volunteering to help whenever and wherever you see a need.
Here’s the really cool thing. When you get involved, participate and just help out every chance you get, you’ll never feel lonely again.
When you get too involved with your own life and don’t share your talents, dreams and abilities with other people, though, you’ll start to doubt yourself, feel like nobody else cares about your dreams and wonder why you thought your dreams were possible in the first place.
Your dreams die when you keep them to yourself. Your dreams die when you don’t reach out and help others. Your dreams die when you feel lonely, scared and full of doubts.
Don’t let your dreams die! Follow Dream Doer Rule #5 and get involved. Start by finding something nice to do for your mom or dad or brother or sister TODAY. Then DO it!
To your dreams,
