Good luck With That!
I've been living my whole life with that, "tagline" as my context for life. I know it's kinds of weird, but my instantaneous response of the voice inside my head was. Good Luck with That! In the conversation I would be supportive and all of their possibility. I know that anything is possible, but when people are declaring they are up to something big like I'm going to feed the hungry, cure cancer or make a million dollars selling something in network marketing, my mind says
- Where is the structure to keep that possibility alive?
- How will you move it along from a good intention to a game people are playing?
- Where is your team, your structure for the fulfillment to make your possibility alive, real and living in a game in the world?
Then I listen as if it has a snowball chance in hell of coming to fruition. Sure I nod and clap and say that great possibility you're going to change the world. In the end, inevitably, I don't hear a structure I know it will be filed it in the "Good luck with that" file of their life. Upon the last word of the possibility leaving the room the possibility is banished to The Island of Forgotten Dreams where all of our doomed, unstructured, dreams live in eternity!
It's a new year lets make it one worth living! let's go to The Island of Forgotten Dreams and grab a couple of our dreams and bring them to Lifes SandBox. Where we structure dreams into games, making our possibilities real and alive in the world. We create our actions for the next two weeks and declare them to our playmates who listening to them into existence into the world! Come Play In Life Sandbox a Playground of Committed listening for structure, and actions.
I declare a new context I'm living it's Lets structure that game! It's probably not going to be a big sexy viral T-shirt catchphrase but it's more empowering then Good Luch With That!
