I really enjoyed my job in London. However, over those 5 years I’d have some of ‘those days’. You know the ones. Where you’re a bit tired, fed up, and want to be somewhere else. Anywhere else.
My mind would then wander. I guess if I couldn’t be anywhere else in person, I could at least be in my mind. I’d day dream of being my own boss. I’d day dream of travelling the world. I’d day dream of presenting travel videos.
The day dreams were pretty vivid. I hope my colleagues never realised. It’s possible I was pulling some weird faces. It really felt like I was there! On that warm beach, talking to the cameras, and all for my new job.
As some of you will know, a few years later I was paid to present a video by the Catalan Tourist Board. Pretty cool hey.
I’m not suggesting that this was due to anything far out. Who knows. It could have been. But for me I think these vivid visualisations came true for a simple reason. Subconsciously I started looking for the little actions and opportunities. I began looking for ways to make my dreams come true.
Bit by bit they did.
Meet Dom Hyams
I believe it is the same interesting process that worked for Dom Hyams. In my latest podcast you’ll meet the guy who’s lived his own wildest dreams. From travelling around Europe , and having made it into a TV Production company. And beyond ….
Dom is a very cool guy. He’s currently working with assist-Mi, the app connecting disabled people and service providers. In bridging the gap between service providers and disabled consumers, I’m hopeful of further progress for inclusion and equality. By visualising a world where everyone can access mainstream goods and services, we’ll all seek out the answers. Businesses will seek out a more diverse market share. Disabled people will seek out the innovative companies catering to them.
From his traumatic early years with brittle bone disease. From his battle into independent living at university. Finally through his determination into employment. Dom is not only living his dreams. He’s making a whole community of people’s dreams come true.
