As children, we were ambitious, fearless, determined to be famous, change the world, and follow our passions. Which ironically, is the time period in our life where we are the most fragile and need the most assistance. At that point in time, we didn’t have the money, the education, or knowledge of what needed to be done in order to make those dreams come true. But, that didn’t stop us. Nothing could.
Here we are as adults, with the money, education, resources, and knowledge of how to put our dreams into action, and yet, we make up excuses not to follow through. Because of the fear and doubts we have, we limit our potential. And I’ll say it again, WE limit OUR potential.
There are people out there that tell children they shouldn’t follow their dreams, they shouldn’t be a fireman, police officer, singer, actor, or humanitarian. And many people look at those adults who tell children, they can’t, as ignorant and cruel. But, how are those of us who don’t follow our dreams any different? Although, we may not say children can’t do it, we are living proof of it. We are living our lives as fearful and doubtful people. Children may be dreamers, but they follow in the footsteps of those who they look up to. They copy the patterns they see and internalize the outer world. So, how is it different?
A few weeks ago, I was walking to work and a thought came to me. If we don’t have money we cannot give money; if we don’t have food in our pantry, we cannot give food; if we don’t have self-love, we cannot give self-love. We are the examples setting the tone for the generations to come. We are the ones who have the opportunity to create a better and brighter future for the world. And it costs us nothing, nothing except to live the life we have always dreamed.
So, go after those dreams, however little or big they may be. You have everything you need and I will let you in on a little secret. If you are following your heart and your passion, there is no way the Universe will let you fall. And here is an affirmation for you:
“All my needs are met with ease and grace. ”
I promise to lead by example with everything I teach and share. That is something I feel very strongly about, if I write it, say it, or speak it, I am doing it. With this being said, I wanted to share something that is following my dream and passion.
I have been doing workshops each month teaching the importance of self-love and spreading love to everyone I know. Because of the dream I put out there of taking this globally, I have been given an opportunity to go to Peru. I have been asked to bring this message to a shantytown near Trujillo for three months. I will be teaching self-love, leadership development, women’s rights, and education classes. Because this is a volunteer opportunity, I have been fundraising to make this trip possible. So, I have made an indiegogo.com fund raising site:
I am asking for support to make this dream come true. However, this dream is more than me, more than you, this dream is for women around the world, and ultimately, all of human kind. Please watch the video and pass it on to others who will want to support. And, if you feel like it resonates with you, donate! Any amount helps.
So, for this week, let yourself dream. What would you do if you couldn’t fail? What makes you feel most alive? Pretend all limitations are gone, where would you go and what would you do?
Dreaming of greatness,
