“I have a dream”

Martin Luther King said I have a dream” not I have a plan. Keep this in mind as I write this post. 

Now, there hasn’t been a day since my accident that I haven’t woke up and thought to myself  “okay, I have a new direction of where my life is to go. I want to take this new path because I strongly support it.”

I am always trying to plan what I am going to do with my life and why. I don’t know how many brain injury victims do the same thing as I but I was at a seminar last month and this is what I learned:

The gym where I am a personal trainer is undergoing a transformation. We are trying out this new program that is supposed to feed the trainers clientele.

At a seminar for it, the man who invented it, Jeff Ruso, talked about his journey and how he got to where he is today. During the seminar he talked about how he had a dream but did not have a plan on how to make his dream happen.

He began to talk about how he started this program that is all online now with paper trails and spending nights in cheap hotels across Canada and the U.S.

He had no idea how to do it but he had a vision for what he wanted out of his product. Long Story short:

I and many other brain injury victims have dreams. Whether its to one day be able to walk again or play a sport, we all have some kind of dream.

Take me for example I wanted to play baseball after my injury, Now, I realize God didn’t want me to play baseball. No matter how good I was at it, that’s not what he wanted for me. Now, I get it. He wants me to help others with this injury.

 Okay, so now I have this dream of helping people with brain injuries. How do I do it? Now I need a plan to do it. OR DO I???

The dream is intact, As long as I can keep that dream intact I can help people with our injury. Thats the beauty of it. One day at a time, slowly but surely I help one here, help one there.

I’m even writing books on things that helped me and about my journey with a brain injury.

It’s kinda like that saying you hear on that ancestory.com commercials”you don’t need to know what your looking for, you just have to start looking.”

You don’t need to know how you are going to accomplish the feat, you just have to accomplish it.
