It is magnificent to take action now and really live your dream. January of each year is full of talk about dreams. Between the start of the new year and the Martin Luther King holiday, there seems to be talk of nothing but dreams. In a way, this is a good thing. In another way, it is sad.

Keep dreaming your big, bold and audacious dreams but never forget that if you can dream them, you can achieve them. All my friends and family members are dreamers. I surround myself with people who dream big dreams and then try to live even bigger. Dreams are a wonderful treasure. They are also scary.

They get scared that the dream is too big for them to achieve. They get scared that they aren’t smart enough to achieve the dream. They get scared that the dream is too far off to ever reach.
