Reach Out



Since last week, many of you contacted me to comment on the posting “Dare To Dream”. People told me stories about their dreams and how they either were realizing them or were working toward that level of accomplishment. Several others commented on how their dreams were realized by helping others on their own journey.

Never, ever, ever stop dreaming. It doesn’t matter who you are, or where you are, or what you dream about, you should dream about what you want to accomplish and how that can provide satisfaction for you, and your family. Our history is filled with people whose dreams have meant so much to individuals and to our society as a whole.

Perhaps you have accomplished your dreams, or those dreams may have changed since you first started your journey toward accomplishing them. Just like business goals, dreams may change as you proceed on the road to attaining them. We should welcome these opportunities to change, refine, and adjust our dreams and our goals. That is how we grow and mature in both our personal and business lives.

There is something else these people can do, and probably have done within their own journey. Take the time to meet with and encourage others on their journeys to their dreams. Encouraging others to dream, and then to work toward those dreams, will bring immense satisfaction to you. In addition, you are sowing seeds of karma that will return great amounts of good to you. Remember karma?

Be a giver, someone who gives to give, not to get. Givers get their fair share and more because they don’t give to get. Karma takes care of their getting back what they give out. Encouraging others to dream, and to work towards their dreams, enables you to attain your own dreams. Your encouragement of others may take various forms. It will not be the same for every one of us or on every day.

You must look at your networking partners, your relationships that you have built, as people who need your encouragement, your partnership in mutual success. You both have a vested interest in each other’s success. Make it happen through encouraging others to reach for their stars, to reach for their dreams. Of course, as their dreams change, your partnership will take a supportive part in those changes themselves.

This past week, I met with several people with whom I am building networking partnerships or relationships. We may pass referrals to each other; we may just encourage each other to dream. We might inform each other about anything that may help us to succeed in business; we might just chat about opportunities to apply what we already know about our business marketing. It does not matter.

Look around you at your business relationships; look at your networking partners. Who do you know who can benefit from the information or knowledge that you have and can share? Information is power and should be shared to the benefit of others. We should not hoard our encouragement and information. We must reach out and share.

Please leave me your comments, or email me at Jim@JimTeasley.com, or call me at 360-314-8691. Continue to dare to dream and then look for others that need you. Reach out and encourage someone today to dream. Work to help your partners reach their dreams and to revise those dreams as needed. Then do it all over again. Maybe they will join your efforts to reach out to even more who need partners.
