Let Your Imagination Take You To Your Dreams

“What you want to do, and what you can do, is limited only by what you can dream.” ~Mike Melvill

The author of today’s inspirational quote, Mike Melvill, is the first commercial astronaut. He also flew around the world in an aircraft that he built. How do things like this happen? Was Mr. Melvill lucky? Did he have some magical power that attracted success and opportunity?

I don’t know Mike Melvill personally. I’ve done only enough research on him to know what I’ve mentioned above. Well, that and he is married, has two sons and four grandchildren (thank you, Wikipedia). When Mike was born in 1940, humans hadn’t even been in space. He was twenty-one when the first Russian launched into outer-space. I wonder if Mr. Melvill knew of his destiny then.

Double Rainbow All The Way Across The Los Angeles Sky

A double rainbow over downtown Los Angeles inspires the imagination.

I’ve already shared a personal story about working on sets doing art department things. It was a dream that I thought was unobtainable, but it happened. This blog and the book I’m writing is another example of a dream that is limited by whether or not I simply do it. Believe me, I have no idea where this will lead. No one knows the future. It could take off and inspire millions; it could reach only a handful; or it could simply not exist. It’s really limited by what I put into it. Of course there are external factors – but think about it. If I don’t write this book and blog, it won’t exist. If I do write, it will exist. That factor is limited by my own actions. Do and it does. Don’t and it doesn’t.

What are some of your dreams? Where does your imagination take you? Share your ideas here or on the Facebook fan page. I would love to hear about your dreams. The big ones, like how you’ve always wanted to illustrate and publish a children’s book. To the smaller dreams, like making it to work on time with matching socks.

What do you want to do? What can you do today to get closer to that dream?
