How surprised was I on a recent business & pleasure trip to the UK recently when I saw the ‘hotel’ we had booked for a few weeks vacation turned out to be a real life castle! Camelot Castle is located in Cornwall set on the headlands near the Southwest Coast Path and the ruins of Tintagel Castle. A place linked with the legend of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table.
I still feel excited and blessed when I travel to across the globe to speak at conferences and I am able to enjoy the places I visit at the same time.
Have you ever heard the saying “building castles in the air“? It basically means to daydream or to make plans that you never actually put into place. Dreaming of future success but never actually moving forward because no action was taken to make the dream a reality.
I truly believe that the opportunities that surround us are invisible to many people, mostly because those people refuse to actually look any further than their dreams. Opportunities are there for us to grasp and make our own and this is definitely one of the reasons I am able to enjoy the life I have today. It’s simple, know what you want, why you want it and go out and get it!
I did and my life changed forever from the moment I knew what my goal was.
