The Dream – A Wake Up Call

June 25th, 2012 | No Comments |

Wake Up CallThis morning, my Dad, brother-in-law and I hit the golf course bright and early at 5 am. For those of you who might be thinking 5 am is too early, trust me, in the Arizona summer, you’ll want to get out as early as you can to beat the heat. There’s never to great a sacrifice for a good round of golf, but I’d rather lose sleep than die of the heat. Sleep isn’t so important after playing a round of golf, mid-day in the summer when you know you could have been playing when it was nice and cool.

Anyway, on with my point. Sometimes we can golf and not say a single phrase that has any meaning beyond small talk. Seriously, women simply can’t comprehend this concept. I’m often asked by my wife what our conversations were about for the last three hours of golf….and I can’t honestly tell her. Most of the time, it’s brainless conversation.

But every once in a while it’s different and today was one of those different days due to a dream my brother-in-law had. In fact, he was supposed to be working at his day job this morning. He works as an electrician at our local copper mine, and from what I can tell, he hates it. He feels like a drone most of the time. Doing the exact same thing, day in and day out. Working for the man. Ever felt that way? I know I have.

So in his dream, all he could see was white. He couldn’t see anything else around him. There was no one around him, but he could hear a voice. At first I thought it might be him dreaming of Heaven or “seeing the bright light” as some people do before they move into the next life. But he said the voice didn’t sound like it was coming from Deity. It was just there. And the voice told him that he wasn’t living up to his potential….and that he isn’t who he is supposed to be.

Talk about a wake up call! With that on his mind first thing in the morning, he decided to take the day off and reflect. So this morning, we had conversations full of ideas and ways to create a better future for ourselves. There were business ideas thrown around and strategies put into place that hold the potential to be extremely profitable to our entire family. It felt good to brainstorm.

The time for playing small is over, and I encourage you to come to that same resolution in your life. Most people play small and expect big. It doesn’t work that way. You must play big in order to expect big results.
