Why is it that we are so quick to deny ourselves the greatest dreams we envision for ourselves each and everyday? If you ask anyone who has ever achieved greatness, they will more than likely tell you the reason they are so accomplished is because they made a conscious decision to follow their dreams and when they do what they love, the money and joy naturally follows. After all, when we follow our gifts and talents, we develop a connection to ourselves and ultimately to the divine. The more you grow into your own soul and re-discover who you are and what you love, the more connected to love to become, and where love is, then you are certain to find the Source of love.
So often what happens is that we spend most of our lives living out another person’s dreams and hide our own under a veil of illusion. I believe this illusion comes in the form of fear, low self-esteem, uncertainty about our own talents, and any other form that fear often takes in our lives. What veil of illusion are you hiding under? Ask yourself what is the greatest dream you have and then ask yourself what is the greatest fear you have attached to that dream. As a coach, I speak to women each and every day who have failed to recognize their own greatness and choose to hide under a veil of illusion. We have control over our thoughts, emotions, and actions. So what you choose to create in your life through these options is truly a deliberate choice. You can choose to follow your dream or you can choose to hide under a veil of fear.
Now is the time to pull the veil from over your eyes and see yourself through the eyes of love rather than through the eyes of fear. Allow yourself to dream big and give yourself the faith that you provide to others when you encourage them. You have the ability to empower yourself by choosing to follow your dreams. Can you just imagine what you could accomplish if you follow your own course and give yourself the greatest gift you can – the gift of believing in yourself.
