Eliminate all “Plan Bs”

The minute I quit the snow removal job last week, not officially, but in my head.. was the minute everything came together.

I’ve since gained 3 new clients, secured another 3 month term with Ronald McDonald House and most importantly, felt happy about life.

If you’re thinking, I need a “what if” safety net, you’ve already allowed yourself permission to fail and thus the likelihood of you succeeding is greatly reduced. Instead, I want to challenge you.

This is a shot of me with my friend, Garth in front of the exact machine he learned how to produce on with his late father, Jack, which is now housed at National Music Centre in my hometown, Calgary Alberta. I spend a lot of time at NMC. Had I not committed to my dream of immersing myself to the music community a few years back, I’d have never met this incredible human. I’m so grateful to call him my friend. He’s changed so many lives and is genuinely one of the most caring humans I’ve ever met.

Dare to dream your wildest dreams. Dare to go above and beyond what others, maybe your closest, nearest and dearest think is absolutely insane. Super high risk. “Not something they’d do”.

Why?

Well, no one was ever inspired by someone that excelled at mediocrity.

Take an effin’ chance and commit to what you love.

Instead of thinking “What’s the worst that could happen, think:

 

“What’s the best that could happen?”

The kids loved this tour, Jason was amazing. Thank you, NMC.

This is one of the 9 pianos David Foster has donated from his foundation. Look closely, see if you recognize any names. What an inspirational tour – behind the scenes at NMC.

That was my day. Had I tried to stick out the Plan B, earning a steady paycheque, grind out the bullshit hours for “income” I wouldn’t have had the chance to be with my friends and in my lane as a leader and educator in the community that has given me so much in return.

Cut the horse crap. Cut the Plan B. You’ll be successful when you believe you will be successful.

Happy Sunday, thanks for listening.
