I was scrolling my Instagram feed today when I saw an artist whom I admire announce an exciting upcoming project she has in the works. I respect this person a lot so my immediate reaction was complete enthusiasm for her and I thought to myself: “Man, what I dream project it would be to work on that.”
It’s not the first time I’ve thought this or fantasized about some awesome dream opportunity hitting my inbox. But then I thought about it a second more and realized, wait a second, I don’t need someone else to magically appear and hand me my “dream project” — I’m in complete control of creating any project myself that I'd deem ideal.
Whether it’s that book I want to write or that mural I’d like to paint or that author’s book cover I want to design, if I want it badly enough, I only have to focus all my energies on it and go after it.
And that’s what I want to remind you of today.
If you’re waiting for someone to choose you or magically appear or suddenly email you with that perfect idea, STOP. Stop waiting and start DOING. Whether you realize it or not, you have the ability to hire YOURSELF when it comes to your dreams. YOU have the ability to choose yourself.
