To some people, fulfilling a dream means only one thing, getting rich.
What’s rich to one may not mean the same to someone else. It’s all a mindset.
When I was young I dreamed constantly about writing plays and seeing them come to life on stage. I also dreamed that I was a speaker. Both came true. But, my focus wasn’t on making a fortune.
Some people must, in their hearts, become very rich. Or no matter how much they accomplish, if it doesn’t make them super rich, they feel like failures.
I knew a man who always wanted a farm. One day he got a little apartment and put planters all around his balcony and porch. He was so proud of his little garden. He shared everything that grew from it and lovingly told anybody that listened the process by which he grew his fruits and vegetables. To him, his dream was completely fulfilled. But, his desire was a simple one.
In this business of entertainment, living a dream is very possible. Many talented people have gotten rich. They love the spotlight and attention. But then there are the quiet ones, who love what they’re doing and love being able to share their abilities to help others. That’s how I love living in my dream. I love using my talents to help others achieve their goals. It’s like the old man’s story. I like watching my garden grow via the talented people I know.
