What’s your Project?
Within each of us lies The Project.
An idea longing to be nourished, cherished, launched and completed.
Writing a novel. Starting an enterprise. Raising a family. Freeing a nation.
Our deepest desire is to do The Project. To express our vision. To carefully
and patiently watch it unfold. To present it to those who will benefit by it.
And to experience the pride of the job beautifully done.
Yet, a million distractions battle for our attention. And one hundred doubts
fill our hearts. And so slowly and subtly, we recite the excuses that construct
our reality. And we shelve The Project. Postponing it for a better day.
But postponing The Project is life’s greatest lie.
Picasso and Basquiat, Einstein and Edison, Jobs and Jay-Z didn’t wait for an
ideal day to do their dream. They started. When it was hard. Though they had
little. While they were alone.
So many of the world’s troubles are symptoms of The Project undone.
Pain is the result of potential denied. And when you avoid The Project, you
dishonour your gifts. Your Talents. Your Genius.
A portion of you goes numb. Silent. Quiet. Scared.
The moment you start The Project, everything shifts. Purpose, focus, passion
and peace returns to your life. Eyes sparkle. Energy explodes. Inspiration
flows. And your days become supported by coincidence, power and peak
This very day, the first of a fresh year–presents your greatest opportunity.
To be a lion not a sheep. To walk with giants versus among the meek. To
celebrate your best instead of succumbing to the worst. To lift others up
versus tear others down. To pour creativity, mastery, courage and light into a
world aching for marks of heroism.
So please, step up. Release all chains. Dispute all doubts. Start The Project.
Do the dream. And change the world.
You are responsible for no less.

Get to it, what are you waiting for?
