Never Say "Someday" Again by Jonathan Bissell




Never Say “Someday” Again
By Jonathan Bissell
What if you woke up tomorrow morning and your dream had become a reality?
What if you’d finally gone to culinary school and become a chef? What if you’d turned all those blog posts into the book you had always wanted to write? What if you’d quit that soul-crushing job you were stuck in and started doing the work you were destined to do? Or what if you’d taken the plunge and begun that new business you’d been talking about for years?
If you’re like most people, the thought of having your dream come true is exciting, but it also stirs up fears and doubts that you just don’t know how to deal with. Most likely, you barely had time to even entertain the thought of making your dream a reality before you shut it down with words like “can’t” and “should” and “someday.”
You don’t like saying no to yourself, but you’ve played the role of dream enforcer for so long that you’ve forgotten how to dream – and you’ve forgotten that the only one who can truly give you permission to dream is you.
In my new book, Dream in Color, Think in Black & White: How to Get Unstuck and Fulfill Your Dreams, I show you how to give yourself permission to fully dream – and how to turn your dreaming into doing until you become the chef, author, visionary leader, or new business owner you’ve always wanted to be.
The road to fulfilling your dream isn’t easy, but it’s waiting for you to walk on it. It’s waiting for you to come and take ownership of it and say, “This is my road. This is my dream. And I’m going to make it happen.”
So come along with me for the journey of your life. Because once you give yourself permission to dream, you’ll never have to say “someday” again.

About the Book:




Somewhere along the way, you had a dream that you let go of. But it hasn’t let go of you.  You're the reason this book was written.  Because dreams matter. Dreams are powerful. And sometimes dreams just won’t go away – no matter how impractical, ill-timed or financially risky they are.

This is a book about getting unstuck in your life or career. It’s about learning to dream in COLOR and think in BLACK & WHITE. There are three parts to this book: Dreaming in Color, Thinking in Black & White, and Fulfilling Your Dreams. Each part contains practical “how to” steps and examples explaining how to get unstuck and move toward your dream. The rest is up to you.
