Dream Big! My Dream is to ride 1000 miles in 15 days this summer! What is your dream?

After seeing the talk by Mick Ebeling i was inspired to do something. Something I have dreamed about but never got round to doing. this summer I am going to ride end to end of Great Britain 'Land's End to John O Groats to raise funding and awareness for 'The Not Impossible Foundation.

Do you still have dreams inside you? What are they and why is it we die with the music still inside us?

  • May 23 2011: my dream is to start an education programme for poor children in china. a high-quality education programme aiming at exploring children's potentials and interests rather than high scores and good results.

    May 23 2011: I see that dreams are still alive and well. Question:

    What If?

    What could we do if......
    Who could we be if.......
    How far could we go...
    How many could we inspire....
    What would be possible?
    How many could we feed and cloth and house...
    How much love would there be to go around..
    What if...?
    What kind of world might it be if...?

    Many times dreams lead to the answer to these questions

    May 23 2011: Lee, first let me say that I am kind of proud and impressed that you are doing this. I knew that you were deeply impacted by Midk Ebeling's talk and actions and now to see your action plan makes me want to stand up and cheer you on!

    My big dream is to sell my house, quit my job and move to China to teach English/ work for the next couple of years. While there I will experience another completely different culture, learn like I have never learned before, enjoy the struggle to learn and communicate in a very different language, begin to understand what it is to be an immigrant and an 'outsider' beyond intellectual understanding and see the world in a way I have never seen it before.

    I have done the responsible and expected thing most of my life. Now it is my turn to live vibrantly!

    My dream is to teach in different countries all over the world for one or two years at a time, repeat until old age, then which ever country I enjoyed the best I will open a bar up on the beach and finish writing whatever books I have been working on!

          May 23 2011: Great idea Nicholas. The goal is also to document and then take the talk to schools in the hope to inspire young people to follow their dreams.
