This is for all the people who are one pound, one story, one song, one point, one person, one dollar, one sale away from glory.
Life can be spent concentrating on “what if” or “what is.” It is easy to get bogged down in frustration and struggle with the “what if” side of life. One moment can change everything. We all know that, and we all want it. Sometimes we want it to so much that we get stuck waiting for that moment instead of making a life.
I am writing this for me just as much as I am writing it for you. I have felt for some time now that I am one person away from being found. Not from being selected, being found. You see I already feel like I was selected at birth to be a writer. That is no longer a question for me. But, I feel like I haven’t been truly found yet, discovered, hit the tipping point. One person of influence could change that. You have no idea how badly I want that.
We are talking the Oprah effect. We are talking American Idol top ten. We are talking leader boards, smashing sales targets, a TED talk, a contest won, a YouTube video gone viral.
Success happens in many different ways and millions have reached their goals, achieved the top of the leader board, had a best seller, a hit record, made more than they dared dream, all without Oprah, American Idol, and TED.
So I say to you, all of you, that feel you are one away, hang in there, keep moving, keep creating because if you know in your heart you have already been selected, you will eventually be found.
