Let's pretend

Let’s pretend for a second that you are great.


Not alright. Or fair. But great.


That no one is better than you, smarter than you or more blessed than you, at this very moment. Narcissistic, isn’t it? But let’s pretend it’s true. Just for a second anyway. 


That you are everything and more. 


That you have been standing in your way all this time, and the minute you move, not much, just a little, the greatness within you will shine through.

Let’s pretend that you are the example that everyone wants to live by. That maybe one day, someone will look back at their life and say…you made it possible. You gave them the strength to change their own life.


Your failures?


Let’s pretend that your past failures are exactly what you need, they are the fuel you need right now to push you forward and higher.


Actually, let’s pretend that you were meant to fail because, let’s face it, the people who have succeeded the most, have also lived through the worst failures. 


So, let’s pretend that you were meant to fail, but you are also meant to succeed far greater than your wildest dreams.


Don’t doubt it.


Just for a second. let’s pretend it’s all true.


That the decision you make today will set you on the path to greatness. Greatness beyond your wildest dreams. Greatness that surpasses your imagination.


Let’s pretend that your fears are just a mere reminder of the person you could become. That you have nothing to worry about. 


Let’s pretend that in 20 years, you will not have any regrets about the moments when you failed or succeeded. That you will not wish to change any of it. 


That the choices you have made are the choices you wish your daughters and sons will be wise enough to make one day.


Let’s pretend that the little you have right now is enough to make your dreams come true. You have everything it takes to become as successful as Jobs, Gates or even Rhimes herself.


You are in the perfect mindset to launch the career of your dreams. To start that business and to elevate yourself into the person you were meant to be.


And you don’t have to figure everything out in this very moment. The rest of the puzzle will be clearer once you make your first move. 


All you need is a little courage. 


Let’s pretend that you are free. Free to become anyone you choose to be. 


Who do you choose to become? Stand in front of a mirror. Close your eyes and picture that person. Mold that person in your mind.


Now open your eyes and look at that person. 


See the energy that radiates through. The laughter in your eyes. The determination. The grit. Do you see it now?


Do you see what the world has been missing all along? Do you see what the world will never witness if you never let that person out?


Let’s pretend that you are so powerful there is nothing you can’t do. 


Take a moment and think about that. 


You are so powerful there is nothing you can't do.


Let’s pretend that the power within you transcends the fears, the doubts, the voices around you that say it can’t be done. 


Now let’s believe it. Because someone out there is living your dream right now. They are not giving excuses on why it can’t be done, or the money required to achieve their heart's desires. 


Someone out there right now is doing everything you love. Living the life you’ve only dreamed of living.


So, what’s stopping you?
