Create Your Dream

 

It all begins with a dream. We allow ourselves to imagine, believe, and create beyond our wildest expectations when we accept the possibility of building our "castles in the air".  As Henry David Thoreau said, "Of course we build our castles in the air. That's where they should be. Then we have to build a foundation under them."

We can dramatically transform our artistic areas of expertise and business by embracing creativity, and establishing the resonance of our soul. It's important to know your subject matter well and realize what makes you an expert. There is nothing more attractive and productive then your own uniqueness and authenticity. Know what that is and be willing to articulate and share it.

Go For Your Dreams

How do we live the life of our dreams? What DOES really make us happy? I believe these are important questions to ask ourselves as we take steps to fulfill our life purpose. Do not compromise. Go for it.

The immediate words that come to mind for my happiness right now are love, serve, and remember. Love finds the perfect partnership in everything. Begin with loving yourself. Take care of yourself first and then there’s the capability, strength, and knowledge to partner in other important relationships in your life.

Dream Freely and Define Success

I had a heart to heart with myself a few years ago and asked myself, “what do I love to do and what makes me feel great”? I have an entrepreneurial spirit and a successful business, but I did not actually feel successful. I have had great coaches in my life and one thing I learned is that knowing what you know is one thing, but being able to coach or teach and pass it on to someone else is a true gift.
