One of the most important things about life that I truly want to empower the world about is the power of within. If you have been following me on social media and reading my posts, first let me say Thank You
You have read my many stories about following your path, believing in yourself and your aspirations. But there is something that I never mentioned and it is probably most important when you are on your journey to what you know to be true.
There might be a dream inside of you that you put aside, a business you want to start, a career that you want to change, a charity that you want to see change the world. It might just be you, a change to improve yourself, your health, your weight, your relationship with yourself or others.
The most important thing that I have seen in my journey and in others is the importance of believing your heart and lowering the volume of the world around you when you are climbing the mountain that noone else sees or can even imagine.
You will be surrounded by people who do not see your vision. You will hear voices that will take you off your path. You will face doubt, insecurity and stop what you are meant to do because others do not believe in you "yet" You will begin to analyze your faith in yourself and most likely not complete what your soul and heart want you to.
When you are climbing the mountain, the mountain that noone else sees, remember to hear your instincts. Remember to believe in yourself and remind yourself each and everyday that it isn't necessarily the view that you are climbing to see, it is the experience of the climb. The experience that will change your life when you are pursuing what you know is meant for you. It is the everyday lessons, the joy in knowing that you are no longer ignoring that little voice inside of you.
You will be surrounded by people who are supporting and understanding, who are rooting for you and see your vision! Family, friends or colleagues who will be by your side step by step and cheer you and your success. Knowing that the glow you now have is due to the fact that you are living the life you were always meant to live. Be grateful for their love and support them on their journey.
But there will be others who cannot see it, they cannot understand your dream. It is not their fault, everyone bases their opinions on their life experiences and their beliefs. It is important to understand that and respect their feelings. Hear them, but not absorb them. Respect them, but do not let them take you off your path. We all are entitled to our opinions, but ultimately you are the only person who knows what is right for you and what feels true.
The success of your climb is the pushing forward each and everyday and celebrating every little success and every step of the climb. Enjoying every experience, every lesson, every person that comes on your path who teaches you something extraordinary. That is the beauty.
I wanted to share this message today because I have seen many amazing people stop following their dreams because of other's doubts.
Believe in yourself and whatever dream you have been putting aside, visit it once again....and listen to your heart. When you are at the end of your life, you want to look back and say "I have tried" instead of feeling regret that you didn't
The Dorothy Show is premiering tomorrow! I am beyond excited about sharing it with you!
