Have you ever been to Dubai? I’m embarrassed to say that only a few years ago I had never even heard of the place. There is a beautiful fountain in Dubai . They say it can shoot water up 50 stories high! Would you like to go there and see it? Are you in the position in life where you could go there, stay in the nicest hotel, eat from the best restaurants, shop at the best stores, and see this beautiful fountain?
As children, we had great imaginations. Little boys dream of becoming a fireman. Little girls dream of becoming an actress. When I was a child I would get in trouble for daydreaming in class too much. But somewhere along the journey to adulthood many of us gradually seem to lose that childlike ability to dream. “Reality” sets in. We have to think about the reality of making a living.
Wouldn’t that be just living in a fantasy world and not the real world? Aren’t we supposed to come down out of the clouds, act mature and responsible?
What about The American Dream? Why do you think people came over in droves in the 1800’s? They came over from all around the world to have the freedom to live their dreams. In their home countries, for various reasons they were not able to “gain” control of their lives like they wanted to. So they uprooted their families, brought all their material possessions and came over to America to find their way – to “live their dream”!

Did you see the movie The Bucket List? It’s about 2 men from very different walks of like, 1 from very modest means with a loving family and the other rich, sour and lonely. They were both diagnosed with terminal cancer and only given a couple of months to live. Since they had to share their hospital room they got to know each other pretty well. One of the things they did was to write out their “bucket list”. This was a list of things they wanted to do before they died no matter how crazy. They sneaked out of the hospital together and one by one they accomplished everything on their lists – the absurd as well as the heartwarming, relationship healing items.
What about you? What’s on your bucket list? Most of us probably have more than a few months to live. Ask yourself some questions and start writing. Where do you want to be 5 or 10 years from now?
What would you like to do? Where would you like to go? What do you want to have?
What about a cause or charity? Is there a special cause that is near and dear to your heart that you would love to make a difference? For me, one of my causes is helping to find a cure for Dystonia, a movement disorder. That is very near to my heart because my 20 year old son has it and there is no cure.
Don’t ever stop dreaming. This is a very important part of your success in your network marketing business.
To help you get the juices flowing, I want you to watch this very inspiring movie. Then start writing.
