I recently heard one of the most inspiring speeches I’ve ever heard. This inspiration has fueled me even more to follow my dreams. Sounds trite, you might be thinking. But I challenge all of us to examine whether we’re really doing something we love. When we finally decide it’s OK to do what drives us, what makes us feel alive, we’re true to ourselves and are who we’re really meant to be. No mask. No facade. No compromising to please someone else.
We have to unbecome what we aren’t and remove the facades and compromises to become our authentic selves. This art of unbecoming may be uncomfortable, scary and spark all sorts of emotions, from happy to sad. When we believe our dreams, rather than doubting them or running scared from them, we become free in our own skin. There’s a freedom in our soul that energizes our being so we can do more, be more and give more. The destination will be there. If you want it badly enough, you can count on that end result ready to greet you. It’s the process, the journey, that counts. That journey isn’t always sunshine and rainbows. The hiccups we face only make us stronger. We have the power to reach the top of the mountain. And just think: The top of any mountain is the bottom of another.
