Jonathan Mead from Illuminated Mind is giving away a copy of his, “RECLAIM YOUR DREAMS: An Uncommon Guide To Living On Your Own Terms” to the person who leaves the best comment.
“Dreams are hard, I know. We’ve all had them at some point or another. But then a little thing called “being practical” seeps in and takes over our existence. We get more focused on paying the bills and getting by than actually living. I try to show people that what they feel is practical and what they’re passionate about can coexist. That they can form a relationship with their head and heart instead of being in a constant battle. That’s why I wrote this book, Reclaim Your Dreams, to show people how to do exactly that.”
Here are just a few of the things that Reclaim Your Dreams will teach you:
- Define Your Dreams – Dreams are fickle creatures and can be hard to tie down, but with a little effort you can do it. Identifying is the first step on the way to achieving and this book will give you the tools to do just that.
- Overcome Uncertainty – You probably wonder at some level whether dreams are practical or just ridiculous. You may not necessarily doubt the dream itself, but the uncertainty that comes with working towards it. You fear your limitations. You fear your weaknesses. Reclaim Your Dreams will show you that conventional wisdom is really just a big, fat collective assumption. Dreams are possible and Reclaim Your Dreams will show you step by step just how to make them take root in the world.
- Wake Up Happy – While there are the elusive few like yourself who dare to dream, there are others who would seek to bring you down. You’ll learn how to overcome the naysayers and how to start being excited about your life again.Jonathan is a regular writer for Zen Habits. I do know that he walks his talk.

A story from my book “Flying By The Seat Of My Soul.”
In 1883, an engineer, John roebling, had the idea to build the Brooklyn Bridge. Other experts told him his idea was impossible. It couldn’t be done. Washington, Roebling’s son, also an engineer, helped his father design the plan and get financing from the bank.
Next they hired the crew and began to build the bridge that spans the river between Manhatan and Brooklyn.
After a few months, an accident occurred on-site. John was killed, and his son was severely injured. Brain damage left him unable to walk or talk.
They were the only ones who knew the plan for the bridge. Because Wahington Roebling still had a clear mind, he developed a communication code as he lay in his bed. He could move one finger. With that finger he tapped out the code on his wife’s arm to communicate to her the plan so the engineers could continue building the bridge.
Washington Roebling tapped his instructions with one finger for thirteen years until the Brooklyn Bridge, an engineering miracle, was finally completed!Are you willing to do what it takes to live the life of your dreams?
