The journey to our dreams isn’t always a wide and straight boulevard with all the traffic lights on green. We run into road blocks, detours, and side alleys that look like they’re the right track. We put our thinking caps on, we brainstorm with people we trust, we dig in and get busy. We try to work through it, then around it, then under it, then over it.
Sometimes, nothing seems to work.
This is the time to let go of the rational and the prudent ideas and to get zany! Remember that idea that came up during your brainstorming session, that really crazy one? Perhaps now is the time to take a closer look at it. In its raw state, the idea may be too nutty to be helpful but perhaps if you think about it through the lens of “how can I make this idea work?” you’ll find your way with it.
Your homework today is to look at those difficulties that have been giving you fits. Have a brainstorming session about it either by yourself or with people you trust. Look at the zaniest craziest nuttiest ideas that come out of the session. How can you tweak these to make them work? Think about it; have fun with it!
You can do it!
I’m so proud of you for the great ideas you’ve already had and for the great ideas you have now! WooHoo!
Your Friend and Pep Pal,
PS: Just a reminder that on September 7, 2014, I’ll be changing the name of this blog to Yes I Can Pep Talks. Everything will stay the same except for the name! 😀
