Follow Your Dreams

Published by at 8:25 pm under A World of Inspiration

I’ve always dreamed about having a book published, sharing my story with the world.  It started to happen this year when I was featured on the cover of Hearing Loss Magazine’s November/December issue.  With 40,000 subscribers, I had tremendous expectations that many people would respond in some fashion and maybe even join my hearing loss community.  I did receive a handful of comments, but overall I was disappointed at the less-than-stellar response.

I once again fell into the pattern of low self esteem and zero confidence, almost to the point of giving up on even trying to reach my goals and dreams.  I want to meet someone, become more social and have lots of friends, and become famous by bringing millions of people to my community that I have worked tirelessly to establish.

Then it dawned on me.  How could I give up?  How could I throw away all that hard work?  What about the people who love being part of the community?  Being featured on the cover of a magazine is a big deal and I’m one out of millions of people with hearing loss to get this opportunity.  Heck, I’m one of  millions period.  What more could I possibly ask for?  I am proud of myself, and proud to be part of the push to get others involved and get the word out.

How easy it was to fall back to my old ways and thought patterns.

If I want to reach my dreams and goals, I need to continue forward and not let roadblocks and the past interfere with me.  I need to see all the good right in front of my face.

I must remember that dreams can only happen if I believe they can, and believe in myself.

Happy New Year!

    This is such great advice and good for you for sticking to it. You have done more than many people have done in their whole lifetime. It\’s amazing to be featured on a magazine and all that hard work paid off for that opportunity. Keep it up!!! You and I have similar dreams. Thanks for reminding me of never giving up.
