This is an invitation to women everywhere
to share what they wanted to be
when they grew up, what became of
that aspiration, and what the secret dream
is now that tugs at heart and soul.

Being Bold

Poet-Philosopher-Color theorist  Goethe said:  Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it.  Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it.

Scientist Paul Knoepfler knows that's true, knows that breatkthrough on the personal and the societal scale starts with the big dream, boldly implemented.

Living your dream indeed takes a certain boldness.  All sorts of people and life situations try to stop us or drain our original enthusiasm and motivation away, if we're not careful.

An anonymous blogger has written about the 7 Truths They Never Tell You, and he's spot on. You do have to work at manifesting the secret dream of your soul's yearning.  It will take more persistence than you think, and there will be times when it will be scary, tiring, or feel perplexing.

You can let that stop you.  Or, you can go the other direction and let fear, frustration, and confusion spur new action.  Determination to persevere is what achieves fulfillment of the dream.

That's what 9 year old Bianca Ryan did when she sang The Impossible Dream on America's Got Talent -- an impossible big song for a young voice that gave me bigger chills than the Jennifer Hudson or Il Divo versions.
