Henry David Thoreau wrote, “Go confidently in the direction of your dreams! Live the life you’ve imagined…”
You can live that life — the one you’ve always dreamed about. You can absolutely get to where you want to be. The challenge for most people is allowing themselves to pursue their passions without fear, worry or doubt. You have the capacity to create the ideal life that you deserve, on your terms.
I have spent years working through my own personal limiting beliefs, and not having much success. I felt unworthy of having the life that I wanted, and I felt lost and hopeless. I was educated, had skills, had good jobs, but the success I wanted in all areas of my life seemed out of my reach. Finally, after many years of feeling like a hamster on a wheel, I decided that how I was living wasn’t working for me, and I needed to change.
I started my journey with Mary Morrissey’s DreamBuilding program; I read wonderful books by Dr. Wayne Dyer; I listened to Rev Michael Bernard Beckwith, and I hired a coach. Within one year, my life changed dramatically. I made the decision to train with Jack Canfield of the Chicken Soup of the Soul books and the bestselling author of The Success Principles. I am now a Certified Canfield Trainer. Here’s what I learned:
