Happy 4th of July!  Once I finish this post, I plan to take a break from working.  I hope you take some time to enjoy the day as well.

But first, I’ve been thinking again. 🙂  

Our founding fathers lived in a time when the U.S. was only a dream– we were colonies of England and none too happy about the old ‘taxation without representation’.

I imagine many people just figured that was the way it was, sat around complaining about it and did nothing.

But our founding fathers were men of action. They nurtured their dream, the hung out with people who shared their vision and wanted to work together to make positive changes. They remained determined and steadfast — through many years and many obstacles.  

Does that sound at all familiar?  If your path is anything like mine or other artists I know who are licensing their artwork, determination, hard work and overcoming obstacles are part of the deal.  But if you hold true to yourself, believe in the vision of what you want your business to look like and keep taking action towards the dream each and every day, I truly believe you can get there.

Take a minute to consider your dreams for your business and your life today.  Let’s learn from our founding father’s and go for it, even if the dream is a life that looks very different from the one you are living today.

P.S.  I dare you to take your current dream and make it bigger than you think possible.  Stretching will create great results in the long run!
