All my life, it seems like I’ve had people telling me what I can and can’t be or do… based on my education, age, what’s sensible, etc. I wasn’t born into the privilege some people have, and everything I’ve achieved so far in life has been–in some respects–against all odds.

It’s not like I can blame it all on other people though. I find plenty of ways to get in my own way too. Fears and doubts, excuses, lack of clarity, accepting the status quo…

Why does this matter? Because in spite of all the roadblocks, I’ve also struggled with a lifelong hunger to play a bigger game, make a bigger difference, impact the world in a more significant way. I know I am meant for more!

I don’t think I’m alone in this either. Let me share a real statistic with you… We live in a country where more than 80% of the people go home at the end of the day feeling unfulfilled with their work. That’s really sad!

I believe one reason for this is that many of us aren’t living our potential or doing what we were meant to do. The saddest part is that sometimes people give up on their dreams because they think it’s too hard or they can’t see how to make it happen. Which I get; I really do! That’s been me far too often.

But I’m not okay with that being the end of the story. I believe everyone deserves a chance to be all they were meant to be. Outside the ranks of privilege, the odds, the rules, or “just the way things are.” We need to live our potential for more than just our own gratification too. We owe it to the world to contribute our best talents and skills and ideas.

So I’ve devoted my life to showing people how to put their dreams into action and serving as their biggest champion in the journey to make the dream a reality.
