It was meant to happen. I don’t know why. But it was meant to happen.
Never did I think in a million years, or even just a year ago, that I would be sitting in a room with a group of people, some friends, some new friends, sharing my passion. I’ve always been a reserved person. Like, I’ve always dreamed big. I’ve always dreamed big on paper. But there’s just something magical about dreaming big OUT LOUD. In front of people who have only known me for a short time. It’s crazy. It’s fun. It’s scary as all get out. But most of all it’s empowering.
The dream starts to materialize. Right then, right there.
Okay, before you start to click away thinking I’ve gone nuts, I have good reason.
Yesterday, I attended Lara Casey’s Making Things Happen Intensive here in Dallas. And it blew my mind. Quite literally. I drove home fired up, invigorated, and my mind flying at a million miles a second. Faster than I could ever run. Like it was even happening in my sleep. My head just wouldn’t shut up. But, it was okay. It was all in the name of good things.
It was so refreshing to be in a room, surrounded by like-minded folks, sharing and being real. Being honest. Being genuine. Being our most authentic selves. Taking transparency to a whole other level. I think it takes a lot of guts to be that honest. To be open to the idea of sharing your heart. To be open to the idea of soaring higher than you could ever, ever imagine. What does that look like?
I am blessed and fortunate to have been a partial scholarship recipient for Making Things Happen. I didn’t even know that I would be attending until Tuesday. I actually didn’t blog or tweet about it because I didn’t want to jinx the opportunity. With the amazing generosity of Lara Casey and her team, we made it happen. I was able to attend. And I’m a firm believer it was because I was genuine and real about it. And it was meant to happen.
I was totally blown away by Lara’s right-side man at the intensive, Jeff Holt. Like holy whoa. Seriously. The moment he began speaking about his experience, it resonated with me. I could see myself in his shoes. And listening to his story, how far he has come, and how far he is going to go is amazing. Knock your socks of amazing.
Now, I feel like the wheels are in motion. Forward motion. I was beginning to feel like they were just spinning, but after this intensive, I’m going to make things happen in 2010.
Have you dreamed your biggest dream? Out loud?
Try it some time. It’ll turn your world upside down.
If you need to re-ignite the fire in what you love, run don’t walk to the nearest Making Things Happen location. You’ll be so happy you did.
