Dreams Do Come True

Dreams do come true and I am so excited this week that I can hardly contain myself. This week I am living a dream that I had about 20 years ago! I am going to work with one of the most highly respected and well-known companies in the world! I am going to be teaching our flagship training program for assistants, the Star Achievement Series®. And I won’t only be teaching this week, but I will be going to this company six times between now and September. I will be teaching 12 full-day workshops with three levels of learning. The point I want to make is that your biggest dreams can come true…. with hard work, commitment, persistence and keeping the faith.

In the early days of starting my business, I dreamed of working with this company because in the training industry they are tops! No one trains their employees better than this organization. In the early years, I tried to think of ways to get into this company but I didn’t try real hard because I thought it was impossible. So what did I do? I went to work at building my craft. I spent years devoting myself to writing an impressive in-depth curriculum for administrative professionals of all levels and all walks of life. I was teaching that course in numerous organizations and I kept improving the curriculum time and time again. In fact, the Star Achievement Series® has had 16 revisions in 27 years. It has stood the test of time and thousands of assistants have attended the course and received their CEAP (Certified Executive Administrative Professional) designation.

About one year ago, I got a call from an individual from this amazing organization inquiring about the Star Achievement course. Now, after almost 12 months of conversations and tons of hours of back and forth emails, I am on a plane heading there today!

This is really about you, though. It’s about you dreaming big, working hard, keeping the faith, never giving up and being a rock star at your calling. So here is my advice:

  1. Dream big! Often we dream way too small.
  1. Keep dreaming.
  1. Don’t let the naysayers squash your dream.
  1. Take your work, your gift, seriously. What have you been blessed with? Are you using your talents or are they just fading away?
  1. Polish your craft.
  1. Always put your best foot forward.
  1. Build a reputation of excellence.
  1. Set goals and monitor your progress.
  1. Enjoy the journey!

What is your big dream? Deep down, what do you hope will happen in your life or your career? Have you given it any thought? Have you ever thought, “Wow, if this happens, it will be the ultimate?” You have to set these ideas in your mind so your subconscious can go to work. Just remember that it may take years for that dream to come true. But it is well worth the wait!
