"When you fly toward a dream
embraced by passion in your soul,
the clouds part, the sun shines, and
the rainbow guides you to
your deepest desires."
Flight To Success
A few months ago we spent the day working towards funding a dream to help the Children's Museum of Central Oregon come to life. We sold 75 copies of I Am Awesome ABCs of Being Me, and inspired children throughout Bend. This young lady looked through the book and found her career! She wants to be a chemist. I told her to keep her vision alive and to look at her page daily.
And then I thought about my daughter's vision to create a place where families of all kinds can bring their children to experience arts and science. Where they can explore and investigate their world while making learning fun. How do you make reality happen? Create the vision and give it life. She needs a million dollars to bring her vision to life. There is no doubt she will make that a reality.
The room was packed all day with families and their children learning, growing and finding fascination in science.
And the giving spirit never ended. While this was a fundraiser and people bought books, raffle tickets, and tiles they painted, that will be mounted on a wall when the museum is built, there were those other who gave what they could to support. These were the first dollars received as a donation. And that's where it begins. A community working together in the name of education.
How do you make dreams become a reality? Chapter 4 in Flight To Success Be the Captain of Your Life is all about goals. And that's where success begins. A dream becomes a vision and then becomes a goal. There is more power in that concept than you can imagine.
"If you set goals and go after them
with all the determination you can muster,
your gifts will take you places
that will amaze you."
Enjoy the Journey!
