It's not brut force, but the determination
in the mind and the belief in the heart, that brings success.
Decide, Focus and Expect!
Happiness is the fuel of success

There are times when I have felt stuck - that feeling that I am not going in the direction of my dreams or even my intentions. Sometimes it feels like pulling a train in a mudslide. When I talk about creating work that is personally meaningful few people in my life encourage me to follow my dreams, it is too frightening for others when I talk about my dreams. I was often charged with being "unrealistic" . I was advised not to speak to those people, but how do you not talk about what you love the most? I found that the road may indeed be unsupported and lonely at the beginning. Looking for encouragement and enlightenment, I sought books that would tell me it's ok to stumble on the way to my dream. It felt lonely for me to stumble, and without encouragement I didn't think I could visualize the end result. I needed to know how someone else had done it. There are few authors that speak more eloquently about the process than Tama J. Kieves. She writes about the process of moving from being a lawyer to becoming a writer. She is eloquent, honest and inspiring. I endorse her book. Read it, only, if you want to believe your dreams are possible despite the naysayers and obstables.
If you don't yet see a place in the world for your unique contribution, remember:
Recently, a 7-year old asked me, "Do you like money?". Money and I have had a love-hate relationship. The best I could come up with was "uh, it's ok...I guess". She seemed to accept the response, but I couldn't stop thinking about the question. Do I really like money? Do I have a healthy respect for money? Do I have enough of it? One of the best money & prosperity websites is Joan Slotkin's - Prosperity Place. Check out her program : Building Your Money Muscles. The quote that follows is from her recent newsletter.
