Like a Kid in a Candy Store

Growing up, I remember the night before Valleyfair (our local amusement park) every summer. My parents would take us once a year, and I could hardly sleep because I was so excited. We'd get up around 6am, pack lunches, slather on sunscreen, hop in the car and drive 1 hour to a full day of unlimited roller coasters, water rides, and sun. I could seriously make myself sick from going on ride after ride after ride.

Tonight feels a bit similar, but in a different way. In an adult way, but I very much feel like a kid again. Tomorrow is the first day of a 3-day adventure in business -- the kind of business where dreams are made. Tomorrow, over 1200 entrepreneurs + guests will gather to hear about our company and how we are literally changing lives through health + wealth. Tomorrow, people with similar ideas about how to live life to the fullest will get together and share stories, learn from each other, and develop and stretch themselves. "We are the dreamers of the dreams. Take a chance on your dreams."

I'm putting this out there to impress upon you what living a red life is all about. It's not magic; it doesn't require a certain personality or background. It requires a true desire to think outside the box, bleed optimism and realize that life should be lived to the fullest. A belief that at the end of the day, we design how we live. No one else will hand us our wishes and dreams and goals; we need to make them happen. So, tomorrow I'm going into that candy store with the biggest smile on my face, an open mind, a willingness to learn, and a huge heart of gratitude.
