Saving The Sun ( dream big )

Last Update: June 16, 2021

Not that " big yellow" needs any help; I think it's doing fine all by its self. However, there are times when it needs to take a break; at those times, pack it up in the station wagon for a bit of shut-eye.

Don't panic. It will be coming to a sky near you in the morning.


Thinking about gigs, it would have to be one of our most significant in our known universe; it doesn't get much more important. What we do at times can seem insignificant. Most things start with a dream or that flash of imagination. The creation can be in direct relationship with the boldness of the dream. It doesn't hurt to dream big.

The dream is one thing making it a reality another altogether
. On reflection, making it happen can be the stumbling block that gets in the way. If we stop and reflect on times past, it usually falls into that category. Even if we are focused and working hard to make our realities, there will be times when we can be left with a healthy dose of imposter syndrome for want of a word.

You know the one where you will be caught out mid-morning on the first day and exposed for the total fraud that you are.


One of the cornerstones of any foundation is to suck it up and keep charging; things may not pan out the way you planned; in business, there are always those times when things go completely off the skids. Then again, good planning and execution and backing ourselves can bring it around the trickle become a tsunami. Work hard, and the results will come, built on commitment, blood, sweat, and tears.

That is the way it is, and that is the way that it goes; we are the masters of our destinies, the future is in our hands. It can be one of those glib sayings that roll off the tongue without much thought. Yet, it is so true.


The last year and a bit have been challenging; that is a bit of an understatement; you think, Alex. Most probably. Most folks are still working hard to create the life of their dreams, while some are struggling; there is no right or wrong. It's what works for you that counts.


I have been following a couple of guys of high integrity for a number of years. One thing for sure, they never cease to amaze me. Over the years, when hard decisions need they stand up and take the appropriate action. Yet, at times there must be an incredible amount of pressure, arriving from all angles and quarters.

Last year was no different; everything was in a state of free fall and retrenchment, businesses were closing left, right, and center—time to batten down the hatches and ride out the storm.

Ah no!


Perfect time to launch a new platform
, not any platform, a total reinvigoration, and one could say reinvention. But, as we know, being relevant in an ever-changing marketplace can be one of the things that just about guarantees longevity.

One of those times when being a fly on the wall would have been priceless watching the strategies, systems, and technologies evolve. Talk about holding your nerve, sticking to your game plan, but most of all holding true to your vision. As a member of Wealthy affiliate, sharing in the journey can engender a considerable amount of pride; through association, we are all stakeholders, and one of the things that I hold is that Wealthy Affiliate is what it is because of the people who come here.

Much respect for Kyle and Carson and their team of professionals that keep the platform ticking over. It is an extraordinary endeavor and one that continues to evolve, as do we. The platform is massive; we pay our membership dues to rock up and partake of everything on offer; every cog runs like a well-oiled machine. Observation tells me that Kyle and Carson sincerely want the people who come here to succeed that indeed is unique.

One thing for sure everything starts with a dream, and we owe it to ourselves to dream big.

What says, you fellow travelers.


Fear, not " big yellow," will be back in the morrow.


Alex Evans.

If we don't dream big then we are not dreaming enough!

I sincerely thank Kyle and Carson for what they have built here.

The hosting and training is second to none in my opinion but the icing on the cake is how all of us are allowed to interact with one another, sharing stories of success or sometimes failure in order to encourage and motivate each and everyone of us.

The members of the community are what really make this place a special place to be my friend!

See you in the morrow, when big red rises again Alex!

So true Nick, one of the over riding values and what makes WA is that interaction. It is worth so much, why settle for two eyes when we can share with and gain from thousands.

I am sure there must be days when Kyle and Carson must pinch themselves to make sure they aren't dreaming. It would be beyond your wildest dreams.

The cool thing is that we can share in that dream, while creating our own dreams.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts, much appreciated.

Hi Jeff, I have thought about that a lot over the last year. When you have a vision and back yourself, there's not a lot that will get in your way.

Thank you for stopping by, much appreciated.

Yes Alex, we need to dream big. I realized that those successful people are the ones who dare to dream big. Their dream comes with great confidence. They swim through the high tide and strong currents.

Thus we should not fear to dream big. Thanks for great insights.

Have a great day.

I agree, Carson and Kyle have created something unique. They have built what I like to call a "safe place" and filled it with great people. People who want to help and build something.

There is so much wrong in today's world, it is nice to have a safe haven.

Long may it continue.

Hi Alex, so true, we don't have to travel very far out into the suburbs of the online marketing world to realize the true value of what we have at our disposal.

Over the years, there has been pressure for Kyle and Carson to change the format, they have stood their ground and stayed true to their vision.

It has created a safe environment where people can learn grow and create successful online presences.

Thank you for sharing your insights much appreciated.

Alex, I appreciate this blog because it shows how we can be productive and successful no matter what the weather

Our dreams are untouched but we are able to tweak and make the necessary adjustments BUT our dreams still goes ahead regardless, as shown by Karl and Carson on this very platform.

Everything does start with a dream, and we owe it to ourselves to not only to dream big but to keep our big dream alive, no matter what !
