If I asked you, do you know what your vision for your life is? The one that will move people, touch lives, make things better? If not, is it because you have lost it? Is it because you're scared? Because you'll be disappointed if you can't have it? What about if you don't try to reach it? Will you be disappointed then?
Where your dissatisfaction with where you are now becomes a yearning that you can't get rid of, explore it. Investigate the anger you feel. Work through the pain. Look at the injustice you're outraged by. Pinpoint your feelings.
Why not just squash it down inside of you? Why not keep your mouth shut, ignore it, and hope it goes away?
Why not adhere to the people who say: "Can't you just get over it? Live a peaceful life and not bother anyone. Be happy with what you have."
We need that dream.
We need your gifts.
We need your commitment to hard work that manifests itself as laziness because at the moment you're just scared. Your laziness will melt away in the face of your excitement.
We need your vision that isn't yet defined because you're fearful it won't happen. We need it to inspire us and keep us going. Keep fighting the fear.
We need your compassion - the one that makes you stay and talk even though you need to make your deadline. Don't berate yourself for choosing to stay, know what value it has for them, the person who needs to talk. We need it to help us when we're feeling horrible.
We need your organisational skills - because they will to help make our dreams work. We need The Stationery Queen. We need it to make our businesses run more smoothly and our dreams to be realised.
We need the well-driller in you. We need the house builder. The artist. The facilitator. The events manager. The one inside you, that you don't dare yet to be or even think of. The one you long for.
We need your dream. Your big dream.
