“The graveyard is the richest place on earth, because it is here that you will find all the hopes and dreams that were never fulfilled, the books that were never written, the songs that were never sung, the inventions that were never shared, the cures that were never discovered…” ~Les Brown
Wow. I don’t know about you but this quote really hits home for me. I can’t imagine leaving this Earth knowing that I have something inside of me that can make a difference in so many people’s lives and not even attempting to give it a shot. Just thinking about it gives me chills.
I know that many of you are holding on to your dreams and gifts thinking that they are just yours and that nobody else cares about them. The truth is, we do. The people who it is meant to touch will care.
Your book may be the exact story someone needs to hear/read that could change their whole world around.
Your song could be the very song that lets someone know that their life is worth living.
Your invention could lead to a cure for cancer.
And I know what you’re thinking because I used to think the same way: “But I don’t want to become a big famous person or invent the next big thing for people to use around the world.” Well, the reality is that most of the world won’t become the next Beyonce, Oprah, Tony Robbins, or Steve Jobs (unless that is your dream and if so, I say go all in!!!). You still have something inside of you that can help others, big or small.
Your new hair salon or yoga studio can promote transformation in someone, giving them the confidence they need to move forward.
Your new clothing boutique could give someone the inspiration they need to follow their dream of doing that or something else.
Your new school could produce the next Beyonce, Oprah, Tony Robbins, or Steve Jobs.
You just never know. And you won’t know until you actually do it!
Whatever it is that you have, it’s there for a reason. That’s why it won’t go away. Will you use it to make a difference or will you take it to the grave with you, adding to the graveyard of unfulfilled dreams?
