I’ve got a confession to make. I have dreams and goals in my head that I keep putting off. I’ve been thinking about them and coming up with plans, but nothing has happened yet. Then I received this book, I’mPossible, Desire Dream Do by Jeff Griffin to review and this lightbulb clicked on in my head. Tomorrow is not guaranteed for anyone. Circumstances can change in an instant. If I want to make my desires and dreams happen, only I can make them happen.
The author, Jeff Griffin, is “an educated wheelchair athlete who knows how to win. He played in the 2004 Athens Olympics, holds a Guinness Book of World Records award and is a four time NWBA All-Star MVP.” But it didn’t start out that way. He started out like most of us, not in a wheelchair, with big dreams of football, fast motorcycles and girls. All of that changed in an instant as his world was turned upside down.
Throughout I’mPossible: Desire, Dream, Do (you see what he did there, right?), Jeff tells his story, not in the poor pitiful me way, but rather in the way of knowing he is worth the fight and effort. He gives the reader exercises throughout the book to help them meet goals and better themselves, because we too are worth it.
“There is darkness and discouragement all around us. There is goodness and light as well. It just depends on which one we want to focus on.” When you get discouraged, look around you and notice the good. Conscientiously notice the good in your life and your world. It’s much easier to achieve your desires and dreams in this frame of mind. Try it. It’s true. If we want to do something new, something different, we have to be in the frame of mind to do it over and over, until we are good at it or accomplish the thing.
I really enjoyed reading I’mPossible: Desire, Dream, Do. Jeff Griffin is an engaging writer, with a lot of good to share. His book comes from his experience. It’s message is an important message for all of us. What are your goals, desires and dreams? What can you do to accomplish them? What is standing in your way?
