“There is no passion to be found playing small – in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.” – Nelson Mandela
Do you feel there are more possibilites out there for you? It’s not that you’re not grateful for everything you have, but you just feel like there’s something more.
This used to be a recurring thought that would consistently weigh on my mind. The problem was I also felt stuck and wasn’t really sure if there was anything that could really be done about it.
I can remember laying in bed late at night really wanting to be sleeping, but instead I was awake, stressed, staring into the darkness listening to all the thoughts continually running through my mind –
I just feel like there’s got to be something more. This can’t be it. But, what on earth can I do about it? How do I actually get there?
I was sick and tired of not having the answers. I knew maintaining the status quo wasn’t ever going to rid me of the feeling that something was missing. So, I just decided one day I was going to rethink what was possible and figure out what I really wanted deep down.
Now, at the time, I really thought I was just dreaming. I can literally remember thinking – None of this stuff is ever going to work out, but hey, it will be fun to pretend like I am going to do it. What do I have to lose?
So, I plopped on my bed, grabbed a notebook and just started writing down the things that came to mind –the dreams I always had, but never thought I was capable of accomplishing; the types of relationships I wanted to have, the things I wanted for my life, and even the way I wanted to feel.
At the time, what I didn’t realize was that my exercise of rethinking what was possible would be the very first step that actually would set everything into motion.
It’s now been a little over six years since that day when I sat down on my bed and rethought what was possible and everything has totally changed for the better. I have taken continual steps and accomplished more and more of those things I dreamt of for my life that day.
I have no doubt that the reason I have been able to find my way to my “something more” is because I took that very first step and rethought what was possible. And, I am even more convinced that’s the case when I look around at so many other people who did the same thing and also found the way to their “something more”.

These are everyday people who also felt that same call for ‘something more’, rethought what was possible for their life and then went and got it.
But, none of us did anything that can’t also be done by anyone interested in finding the way to their “something more”. It’s just a matter of rethinking what’s really possible and then taking the specific steps that will allow you to get to where you really want to be.
That’s why I am so excited to share early next year a course I created that goes through all 7 of the specific steps that need to be taken to get whatever it is you really want for your life. I’ve been working on it for about a year and I really think it will be helpful for anyone who wants to unlock all of their possibilities and find their way to living the life they always wanted.
And, today is the day to get started and take that first step.
The Possibility of Today:
1. Rethink What’s Possible. Take some time today, grab a journal and make a list of at least five things you really want for your life. Include both the big and small things.
2. Consider These Questions: When you think about how you really want to live what specifically is missing? What do you really want that you don’t have right now? Is there something you’ve always felt you were meant to accomplish?
3. Find out If You’re Blocking Yourself: Take this Quiz and find out if there are things you are doing that are working against you unlocking your possibilities.
