A dear friend of mine presented me with a plaque that read “If you can dream it… you can achieve it.” I placed it in my office and truly believe it is when we are at our quietest, when we have taken the time to step away, taken the time to be alone that we make the greatest progress toward our dream. We all have the power in our lives to make just about anything happen, so here we are, make it happen and believe in your ability one hundred percent. Visualize it, journal it, breathe it and your wish will travel alongside you and guide you toward your passion.
