Five Years

HollywoodBowl1This weekend I went to the Bruno Mars concert at the Hollywood Bowl. As you can imagine, it was a fantastic experience with Bruno Mars, Pharell Williams, and Gwen Stefani putting on an amazing show. Yet the thing that touched me the most was something Bruno Mars said: “Five years ago, I was playing with my band in little bars down on Sunset and now I’m playing at the Hollywood Bowl.”

It got me thinking what can we do and where can we get in the span of five years? Where we are right now is just a stepping stone, a moment in our journey leading us to our own Hollywood Bowl, to our own moment when we humbly stand in front of thousands of people, with a sold out concert, knowing that all our effort has been worth it. Will fireworks light up the sky for you? Will you see your name in shiny lights? What will your Hollywood Bowl concert be?

 What do you dream about now that could become reality in five years? Or maybe even sooner than that. What’s on your vision list that seems bigger than you at the moment? How will it seem when you look back five years from now?

  1. Hey there,
    The quote you caught: “Five years ago, I was playing with my band in little bars down on Sunset and now I’m playing at the Hollywood Bowl.” is really inspiring me and should inspire everyone. It reminds me this quote from Michael Jordan: “Some people want it to happen, some wish it would happen, others make it happen.”
    Thanks for your post!
