My thoughts on becoming a guide

With Guide School 2016 a little over 2 months away, I was thinking about those out there who are still considering and dreaming about becoming a fly fishing guide but still have not made the commitment to do so.  It is one of those mental pages in our heads that we take to bed every night and in our thoughts before sleep.  I have been there in my life at least a dozen times.  I know what it is like to be caught up in that internal conflict and sometimes agonize a bit about making the full commitment to what I actually wanted to do.  I can say with absolute certainty that when I made the commitment to do what I had dreamed about for so long, I was never disappointed and always fulfilled emotionally.  For me, this applied not only to becoming a fly fishing guide but also as a ski patroller and high school football coach. Dreams do become realities when you allow yourself to take the risk and commit to what you actually want. Give yourself permission to do the things you want.  The safe route is not always the best route when it comes to personal satisfaction and fulfillment.  If you are currently in that state of mind and want some guidance, contact me and I can give you my thoughts on how to problem solve this situation and maybe help you figure it out.  I know some will find this to be a sales pitch (and to some extent it is) but it is also completely genuine and applicable to so much more than just fishing.  Hope to hear from you.
