Miami Dreams and the 1 in a million
- 7 Comment
Recently I took a weekend trip with friends to Miami. South Beach to be exact. It’s pretty much self explanatory of the scene on South Beach. Party Animals, International Tycoons, and the parading wanna be’s with there 1200 dollar rental Lambo’s cruising up and down Ocean Drive. To some it up I had a great time. It was very relaxing and I enjoyed the scenery of the hot cars, sheik beach side hotels, and Azure waters. During my walk down the beach with friends I saw countless Aston Martin’s, Lamborghini’s, Ferrari’s and every other exotic that comes to mind. So me of course being the dreamer that I am constantly envisioned myself living the life of a person who enjoyed such luxuries on a regular basis. It was awesome.
I came back to work the following Monday explaining to a co-worker all the things I saw, and how it motivated me to stay focused on my dreams, because that’s how I want to be able to live my life. He quickly stopped my rant saying, “you don’t understand, you can’t live that way! The people that visit Miami with that lifestyle are those 1 in a million success stories from around the world. You can’t just think you can live that life”. I stopped him quickly with my rebuttal.
“You may put limitations on your life and what’s possible for you, but don’t try to share your limits with me.”
I believe you can’t know what you want out of life until you have seen it. Sometimes seeing something and visualizing it leads you to make drastic changes in your life to attain that thing you have set your mind on. If you sit in a Ferrari and set your mind that you will own one one day, even if you never make it, believing and chasing that carrot can pull you to a Mercedes-Benz SL 500. It may not be a Ferrari, but you will have made it much further by shooting at a high goal. Don’t let others determine what you can or can’t have in your life. People don’t realize how often they change lives by killing the dreams of others with their own insecurities about what’s possible. When someone expresses a dream to me, no matter how wild I think it is, I tell them to go for it. You can do anything you believe in and take action to really go after it. I plan to be one of those 1 in a million travelers who one day cruises the streets of Miami in high style enjoying life without limits….
