Are you taking steps to make your dream happen? It means going for it even if you aren't sure if you’re doing the right thing. You learn as you go. It's going for it that makes the dream a reality. It takes guts to live a dream. You can't wait until you're ready or you're sure. If you wait you will never be ready. This is your one precious life. Make it count. Dare to be yourself. Dare to live your dream. Dare to put everything on the line for something that feels a part of you. We’re not talking about something that’s a passing fancy or the latest trend. But something you know you are here to do or be. Everyone who stands out is someone who took a chance without having any guarantee that things would work out. If you "fail" you will have learned about yourself and you will do better next time. By the way, the lesson is not "I'll never do that again!" The lesson is- I can find a way to do it better. I can refine it and go for it.” That is what creates success.
Michael Jordan said he was such a huge success because he missed so many times but he kept coming back. That's what we all have to do is "keep coming back." If you see someone who looks like an overnight success go talk to them. You will find out how many times they fell on their face and had to get up and start all over again. It's the determination that follow the original passion that makes a success in any terms. Know that others have had the same struggle as you but they made it. You can make it too!
We are all here to be ourselves, whatever that is. It's so easy to follow the line of least resistance in one way. But in another way it is soul-destroying to do something that is not your true self. It pays to stop from time to time and ask yourself if this is really you or is it something that seemed like a good idea at the time? For a long time we have discounted the heart when it comes to business. The time has come when we can no longer do that. Our planet needs people to live from their heart. Living from the heart, being ourselves, heals many things. It is the gift we give to the world. Be absolutely truthful with yourself. Ask the question: "Is what I'm doing now what I am here to do? If it's not, how can I change it so that it truly fits with who I am? Sometimes it means changing everything and sometimes it means just changing a small thing. Only you will know what the answer is. And, it's so worth finding out. It will change your life for the better and you will be happy and you will be an inspiration and give courage to many others.
You have so much to share with the world. Let your light shine!
My best to you,
