|“This isn’t random.”
That was my though last Thursday evening sitting in a theater as I watched the documentary After So Many Days. A few weeks prior I had been asked to moderate the film with the producers as part of the Traverse City Film Fest. My assignment, I was told, was chosen at random. But as I was mesmerized watching this band go “all in” on their dreams, I knew I was fated to see this movie.
The band’s musicians, Jim and Sam, were sick of feeling in a rut. Instead of waking up each day feeling like they weren’t doing all they could to be successful, they decided to make a change – a drastic change. They were going on a tour to perform every single day for an entire year. Even if that performance meant a pop up in a random liquor store, or serenade to a food delivery guy. For one whole year, they were going to be relentless.
I encourage you to watch the trailer. Once you’re done, ask yourself:
- What dreams am I half-heartedly committing to?
- What can I do today to ensure my success for tomorrow?
- What if I were to commit to something for a whole entire year? What would happen?
As for me, this film was an inspiration and a great reminder of the power of intention. We can let life happen to use, or we can make life happen for us.
I’d love to hear from you – what are you pursuing with intention today to create your better tomorrow? I love being inspired by others and their dreams, so shoot me a note!!
