What would you be? Diving deep down into your imagination and digging into your “alter-you,” who would you be that is different from who you are right now. I mean, throw all caution to the wind and don’t worry about talent or money or practicality. Who or what would you be?
Now, my life has led me down many different paths. Let’s see…I started out as a teacher, then an advertising sales rep, then a real estate developer, and now a Professional Speaker. In between, I was also an owner of a Quizno’s Sub, a manager of a bridal department and also led the visitor services team at Millennium Park in Chicago. WHEW! I better stop there.
So, when my husband asked me the question: “What would you be that is different from all the other things you have done,” I surprised myself when I shouted out, without hesitation:
Yes, that’s it. I want to dance across a stage with my dress flowing behind me, arms waving in the air, as graceful as anything you have ever seen. Why??? I have no idea. Except for winning four dance lessons at a local Fred Astaire Dance Studio, I have never been involved in professional dancing in any way. Yet that’s my answer – my final answer: “A dancer!”
So, what about you? What would you like to be that is different from who you are right now? If you let your mind wander, you just may discover a different part of yourself.
