You can tell a lot about a person by what they are chasing. Some chase money. Some houses or cars. Some chase relationships. Some chase better jobs or promotions. Some chase dreams. I watched an interview one time with Ted Turner. The interviewer asked him what it was like to look at your net worth and, for the first time, see $1,000,000,000. A one and nine zeros. Ted sat there thoughtfully and then he spoke some profound words. With a sigh, he said “It‘s an empty bag, but you don’t know it’s empty until you get it”.
I will admit that I’m partial to the dream chasers. Not the ones who chase hit songs because they will make them lots of money. I admire the dreamers who just chase the dream because, in chasing it, they are being true to who they are, and they are honouring their gifts. I admire them because getting the money from a hit song won’t change them. If they DO have a hit, they won’t stop chasing. If they DON’T have a hit, they won’t stop chasing. They have to chase the dream because the dream is who they are. If you want a challenge, take an hour this week to look at what you are chasing, because, in many ways, that defines who you are. Look at it honestly.
Are you chasing money? Fame? Acclaim? Or are you chasing the dream for the pure satisfaction of being true to your calling? An honest evaluation of those questions can change your life.
