The other night we were invited to eat at someone’s house. We didn’t know the fellow but figured…free food…why not! We showed up…delicious by the way. I was so impressed by this guy’s house. It was enormous and gorgeous.
But he didn’t always live in such a plush house.
Behind the pool was a tiny pool house. It was a pretty modest pool house…but not a great house. His family of four used to live there.
It’s pretty common in Argentina to buy a piece of land, live in a tiny house, and build your new one on the same property. What a cool idea! You buy the land cheaply, live modestly, then reap the benefits later.
I think we need to be more like that when it comes to our dreams. I think we need to move into the land that our dream occupies. Then start building. Too many people wait until they have everything together to start working on their dreams. But we never have everything together. Those who accomplish big dreams move to the land. They commit themselves to it. They live below what they could to make their dream a reality.
Have you moved into your dream’s real estate? Have you committed yourself to it? Or are you waiting for all the resources to come together before you start.
Let me encourage you. Start.
