Thanks to all of you who completed my one-question survey about what you’d like to learn on this blog. It’s so helpful already!
If you missed the weekend post — or you read via RSS feed and didn’t see the survey (sorry about that!) — you can answer the question here.
Hidden in the middle of his paragraphs about those six months on the trail, he wrote a gem:
“I think some people hike the AT with huge dreams, and then there is another group of people who realize they can dream big after doing it.”
That flipped the ah-ha switch in my brain. I write a lot here about why it’s worth taking a leap in life, why you should do it now and how you can make it happen. But that sentence made me realize that doing something awesome — what author Jenny Blake calls Making Sh*t Happen — benefits each of us many times over. Because once you’ve done it, that one-time experience turns into a springboard of confidence, a launching pad that opens doors to more opportunities. Once you’ve done it, you’ve proven to yourself that you can live how you want to.
And that means you’ll dream big — and accomplish big — from there on out.
