Every success story begins as a dream. That amazing book you read, the beautiful venue you visited on your last vacation and your favorite song all began as a dream in someone else’s mind.
Personally, I’m a dreamer in every sense of the word. My day thrives on dreams and ideas that I imagine and I’m not able to focus much until they’re at least written out on paper.
Lately one of my big dreams has been to open an online store to add to this website. I want to offer products that fit with the theme of my blog but also digital downloads like eBooks, webinars and more. As a blogger, I have to constantly think of ways to keep my brand fresh and relevant and an online shop is a natural choice. As with all dreams, opening this shop has been challenging.
One of the challenges has been narrowing down what products I want to offer and which ones I want to start with. I don’t want to overwhelm my potential customers but I also want to offer them the best of what I’ve come up with. Another challenge is simply making sure I’m sharing my products with the right market. This task in itself won’t be difficult, but identifying the market may be time consuming.
Greater is an inspirational movie based on the life of professional football player, Brandon Burlsworth. Burlsworth had a dream to play football for the Arizona Razorbacks but he was not exactly the “ideal” athlete. He persevered and was given an opportunity to walk-on and play football and became one of the greatest players to ever do it before being drafted by the Indianapolis Colts.
Watch the trailer for Greater below. It’s being released in theaters today!
Like Burlsworth, no matter what the situation looks like I must persevere and maintain my determination to open the store. With enough hard work and dedication, I’ll be able to open and exceed all my sales goals. The same goes for you – whatever you’re dreaming of doing, never give up on it!
