Did you ever have one of those days where everything just falls into place? I mean, it’s Monday, so somewhere in the back of your head you’re thinking…another Monday…what’s going to happen today.
I receive a message from “The Universe” (if you don’t get your messages every day, make sure you sign up NOW!), every day. The past several weeks, the messages have been really hitting home and have been hitting really deep. Today’s was no different. I posted it to my personal Facebook page and Instagram because I thought it was such a great message:
“A great trick to getting what you want, fast, Dana, though one requiring a deep level of understanding, is 'insistence.'
Not the kind, however, that expects 'life' to behave a certain way, but the kind that expects you to behave in a certain way.
I already knew my Monday was going to start off with a bang from the Universe. One of the biggest influencers of my running and recovery arena reached out to have a chat. Me. ME!!! We spent almost an hour and a half speaking of all things running, recovery, service to others, and big world dreams. It was an amazing ever-flowing conversation that I look forward to continuing.
Something must’ve been in the air from that conversation. A definite zing and MOXIE, because after that the heavens just kept pouring down the glitter. I had one of my favorite coworkers and friend call to catch up. After kibitzing all things work, life, Covid, and such, the conversation led into telling him about my 30,000 foot dream, and how I’m looking for data points and understanding in the corporate world, and voila, he knew a company right off the bat that is doing what I am looking to do.
Then! The Montgomery County Chamber of Commerce calls. I recently joined and they make calls to new members to get introduced and familiar with their business and to ensure the new members are aware of all of the events and programs that are available to us. During the most excellent conversation he began to list all of the events for the year, including an inaugural 5K in July. Guess who’s now on the committee!
But wait! There’s more! In my one on one meeting with my ever so favorite manager, and during an organic conversation about the things I’ve been doing with my coaching business, my recovery, and ideas, my big 30,000 foot dream came up. Because my company rocks and my manager rocks, we are working on a PPP – proposal, presentation, and pitch – to bring my 30,000 foot dream to life. Oh. My. God.
The incredible support, collaboration, and inspiration is nothing short of humbling and me being completely speechless. And, if you know me, that’s pretty darn hard to do.
I can see my dream. I can feel my dream. My insistence of authenticity and raw vulnerability to put my life and story, and my dream out there is being heard. The extremely hard work is on me. Every single second of it is worth it. If I can see this through fruition, the help I can provide to so many will be worth it. My purpose is real.
What is your insistence? What is your 30,000 foot dream that you want to see come true? Are you willing to put it out there? Are you willing to put in the work? Are you ready to be authentic and vulnerable? I am.
