*** "If dream was worth dreaming, work is worth working."
How many dreams have we "boarded up" too soon? What all could we have all ready missed out on?!How many days were WE from success when we quit? What if we believed more in our dreams and in ourselves?
You know good thing about boards and nails? They come out and they come down. The owners could, if they had stuff, give it another shot. They could take boards down, sweep off front walk, call realtor and tell her they'd found perfect people.
Granted, it would take guts, boundless courage, a strong backbone and 75-pound, brass willpower, but isn't that what it took in first place?
If they had legs to walk walk first time around, they have legs to walk second time around - and this time they'll know path better!
Do you have any dreams you need to unboard? If anything springs to mind, it's still important to you - you see it through boards! Take nails out, wood planks down and let some light get in. Spruce it up and get reacquainted - promise to never give up again. YOU may be 30 days away from utopia as well, but you won't get there if you stop in your tracks.
It goes without saying, if you have dreams that you're tempted to board up - keep nails in your pocket. Stay Open for Business and FIND A WAY....MAKE A WAY. There is always a way.
*** "The future belongs to those who believe in beauty of their dreams." - Eleanor Roosevelt
Think about that little restaurant. What would you have told owners to encourage them right before they threw in kitchen towel? I know there's advice you would have given. I also know you would have done all you could to help them - you would have stood right between them and boards. That's where I'm planting myself right now, between you and your boards!
