Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it.
Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. Begin it now!
J.W. Von Goethe
After teaching music in Alaska for 26 years, I came home one day and told my husband I wanted to shift out of my role as teacher in one classroom and make the world my classroom. I was passionate about raising the vibration of love on our planet by sharing my stories and songs on a global level.
Rather than panic and tell me not to quit my day job, he went out and bought me a beautiful painting of a mountain goat leaping from one sheer cliff to another, surely to fall to his death were he to not make the other side. At the bottom of the painting it simply said, ‘FAITH’. So I took the leap of faith and retired early from teaching so that I could go out into the world and share my music & my message.
We don’t always get that kind of support from our families when we want to follow our passion but we can start with our own faith and begin taking little leaps toward our dreams. What kinds of steps could you begin taking today?
- Decide that your dream is important!
- Create a dream board and paint the picture of your dream using lots of colors and images that help you feel it as though it were already real.
- Take a step every day toward making your dream a reality, even if it is a baby step, When you begin something, a myriad of things come your way that you might never have dreamed would happen!
I believe that when we lose our fear and take a leap of faith toward something we’d really like to do, it brings us closer to our true calling!
May you Leap with Faith Today! 🙂
