I’ve always believed if I cannot solve an issue or problem myself, I should share it with others who might be able to offer a solution. Sometimes I’ll consult with a few close friends or colleagues.
Besides issues, I share my dreams. Dreams need more than wishing to come true. In order to make our dreams a reality, we need many resources and every offer of assistance that comes our way.
That’s where a dream team can help–a small group of people whose only goal is to help each member of the team get what he or she wants. This support group will help you develop plans; give you specific contact information and how-to-do-anything directions. This team will be involved and interested in your progress, applaud you when you’ve accomplished an objective, and when you need them, help you find alternative ways to reach your goal. They’ll help you stick to your projects–and they’ll do it all for free. Why? Because someday you’re going to return the favour!
Why does a dream team work? Because people have better ideas for others than they do for themselves and second, people have more courage for others than they have for themselves.
After 35 years in chiropractic practice, I’ve heard thousands of patient stories. Some of those stories are their dreams. They know that I am keen to help them with any challenges that stand in their way. “Call my friend… have you read… there’s a seminar at… take a course on… I had the same issue… here’s what I did. By the time they leave my office, they have found some motivation and direction to pursue their dreams.
And I feel joyful knowing that I am paying it forward to someone else.
Wellness guru, Deborah Szekely, the founder of the Rancho La Puerta spa in Baja Mexico, wisely believes “the body is not a motel that you check in and check out of… this is the body you live in… for life!”
And if you find the fun in fitness, it will be easy to maintain. Check out this inspiring video.
