I’m all about finding and focusing on your passion, which, in my opinion, can lead you to the life of your dreams. In fact, I’m living proof of that.
And sometimes, I’ve struggled with friends and loved ones who didn’t (and still don’t) support my dreams. So how does one get the proverbial cahones to take it up to the next level?
A hint: it’s just like I’ve always said: it all starts in your own head. That’s right. You have to love yourself enough to support your SELF. But how can one do that?
Well, according to Huffington Post contributor and abundance coach Mercedes Maidana, it all starts by reclaiming (or claiming for the first time) your own personal power.
Because, contrary to popular belief, YOU are powerful. You are – I promise.
Maidana agrees, noting that everyone feels “fearful when we are pursuing something big in our lives.”
“It’s scary to drop what you’ve been doing for years and take a different path,” she adds. “It is scary to invest money in a project that we don’t know is going to be profitable. Nothing in this life is certain (well, they say that only taxes and death are).”
“This is not about making others wrong so you can be right. This is about you living your best life. You owe it to yourself and you owe it to those around you (yes, even the non-believers). The best service that you can do for yourself, and everyone around you, is to live your dreams, so you can shine from within and touch others with your light.” Read the full story at The Huffington Post
