Dream Manager

21 Mar

Throughout this self-publishing journey, I’ve found that when you begin pursuing your dreams, most people genuinely want to see you succeed.  Sure, there are some individuals who would rather you fall on your face, but they are a minority. 

If you’re going for it (whatever it may be), don’t be afraid to ask for help when you’re floundering.  As with everything worthwhile, the road to your dream will be wrought with self-doubt and perilous pitfalls that require hard work, perseverance and patience to navigate.  However, if you surround yourself with a great support system, the struggle won’t be as lonely.

The vast majority of your peers and mentors want you to attain the goals that drive you to reach the farthest.  Those who witness your victory will begin to realize that their own personal dreams and aspirations are just as attainable.  The result?  Probably the most positive domino-effect in the history of mankind.

At my day job, I’ve been blessed with a brilliant Dream Manager.  His sole purpose at the company is to help facilitate employees’ dreams outside of the office.  Unfortunately, there aren’t enough clearly-designated Dream Managers to assist the rest of the world’s dreamers.

I’m here to tell you that you can be a Dream Manager for someone else.  You don’t need a corporate-assigned title to help motivate those around you pursue their dreams. 

Urge others to reach for the stars; don’t be the one to take the light from their eyes.

I’m thankful for those who have chosen to help me achieve my dream and wish all the success in the world for those of you pursuing your own.

– Jenny

    Must be awesome to work somewhere that actually hires someone to be supportive of employees. We barely hire enough people to do all the work that needs done and if someone leaves we all just pick up the slack. I am soooo happy for you.

      You’re right, Kathy. I’m extremely blessed to have found such an amazing place to work!
