Have you ever run into someone from your past and found they were still in the same place in their lives that you left them years ago? That happened to me recently while visiting my home state. While settling into a neighborhood coffee shop, I happened to look up and coming through the door was a blast from my past.
I was very happy to see my friend and they looked great. We quickly settled in at the table and started talking the afternoon away. There was so much to catch up on I didn’t realize it had been so many years since we had seen each other. The sad thing is that about an hour into the conversation, I realized that the same dreams that they shared with me over 20 years ago, were the same dreams they were sharing in that moment. The unfortunate thing was, the dream had not moved into action.
My friend is incredibly talented and the vision that they shared with me in the coffee shop was just as amazing as it was the first time I heard it. I couldn’t help asking; why things had not taken shape with so much time having passed. The response was pretty common and ones that we all have to beware of in order to not fall in the trap of procrastination and just plain being stuck.
