There was a phrase that I heard the other day and it truly made me think.
"If you want to go fast, do it alone. If you want to go far, go with others".
This quote applies to so many different areas in our lives. I for one am a true believer that together is the way.
Someone posed a question the other day, they wanted to know why on the Dorothy Show I am only in the first part of the episode. Why am I not seen only heard in the remaining part.
My answer was simple "I want to allow others to shine, I want to give women, men and children a platform to showcase their talents, their magic and their special gifts. It is not about me, it is about them"
When the person who asked the question now heard my answer, their response was "I just realized that even though you are only in the first part of the show, we feel your magic and beauty through the entire episode, because of the way you make others feel"
And there was the moment when tears came to my eyes. I realized that the quote that I always cherish close to my heart and truly live by, the words of the great Maya Angelou "I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel" is being reflected in the work that I do in the world.
I could go alone and create a show that focused on me, but my heart would not be fulfilled and the world would miss out on the magic and knowledge that so many others create and can share.
"If you want to go fast, do it alone. If you want to go far, go with others". Something to truly think about when you are on your path.
Love, Dream, Believe, Inspire and create a space for others to join you
