Make all your dreams a reality.
In honor of full discloser I am writing this post as part of a contest with Michael Hyatt’s Platform University. Michael Hyatt is the author of the New York Times bestseller Platform: Get Noticed in a Noisy World and former CEO of Thomas Nelson publishers. His mission is simply this: “to help high achievers win at work and succeed at life.”
Truthfully, I hadn’t planned on participating because, I wasn’t certain I could win (when I play, I like to win, don’t you?), and because I didn’t think you’d be interested in why I love Platform University.
Then I realized what Platform University has primarily done is inspire me. And knowing we all love to be inspired, I wanted to share that inspiration with you.
I found out about Platform from my husband who as a pastor, has benefited from Michael Hyatt’s goal setting program called 5 Days to Your Best Year Ever. My husband has completed the program every year now, and I’ve seen notable change in him as a result. One of which is regular date nights with me! After viewing one of Michael Hyatt’s podcasts I was invited to join Platform University.
In life, to make change happen you need to take that first step. Join. Say yes. Go. Do. Speak. Step out!
I just want to write. I want to help others through my life experiences and use my writing to do so. Today, so much about writing is building a platform to get your work out.
In light of this, I took the step of joining Platform University. It was an excellent no-turning-back step.
I love the master classes, the member makeovers, the behind the scenes, the question and answer sessions, and the community of others cheering me on.
Inspiration arrives at the click of a computer key.
What inspires you? If you don’t know, find out, and then do it. In life we need to stay motivated. When I don’t feel moved I feel dead inside. As a result, my life loses its zest. I become dull.
Do you have a dream? Is there something you’ve always wanted to do but were afraid to take that first step? What do you dream about when no one else is around? What do you secretly wish for? Maybe it’s writing. Maybe your dream is to be a chef or a business owner. Whatever it is, I encourage you to take that first step.
Be the best version of you by going after your dreams.
You are never too young or too old.
Mark Zuckerberg co-founder of Facebook, who dropped out of Harvard University, became a billionaire before the age of 25. And then there was Julia Child who at the age of 51 made her debut on television as the “French Chef.”
Whatever your dream, Platform University can help you achieve it.
As for me my first goal and biggest “dream” was to raise godly children. Now that my 3 children are adults, and loving and serving God, I’m on to my second biggest dream. Which is to use my writing to make a difference for others.

I do love Platform University, not because it gave me instant results, although it has, not because it gave me focus, because it has done that too, but mainly because it boosted my belief in me. It also helped me to continue to strive to be the best version of myself I can.
Be the best version of you and take your first step, whatever that is for you.
