I always knew what I wanted. I knew what my dream was. But I let my crazy little fears, self-doubt, and the naysayers hold me back for decades from living into my dreams. What if I failed? What would I say to the people who said, “Told you so!”? What if people laughed at me? I didn’t believe enough in myself or my dreams to have the courage to take a stand–I was too scared to take the risk.
Today, because I now believe in myself and in my dreams, my life has changed dramatically. I am doing the work I was born to do–and better late than never, I say! I still believe in chasing dreams, because I know that by living into my dreams, I have the chance to make an impact on people’s lives. And I know that if I can make a difference in even just 1 person’s life, then I will have changed the world.
It’s just like in The Wizard of Oz –when you know your mind…when you know your heart…when you know your courage…when you know yourself–you CAN change the world. You CAN make a difference.
