A few years ago, I created a Manifesto. It was a time in my life when I made a huge decision, when I had the realization that if I played small and mediocre, I was teaching my children to do the same. I chose instead to dream big and play big! Here’s what I came up with:
I Dream Big ManifestoI declare that I will dream big. No goal is too big. No dream too outrageous. I am a positive fabulous being put on this earth to live, create, contribute, serve and influence and I will use my talents, my gifts to be everything that I am capable of being. I choose to take action every day to move forward towards achieving those goals, towards greatness. I choose to live a life beyond mediocrity. I will surround myself with positive, amazing people whom I will support in their dreams, as well. I recognize that there will be obstacles, there will be fear, there will be some failures but I choose and promise that I will learn from this and do what it takes to overcome and move forward. I’m ready to play big!
So that was several years ago. I’ve written this on my vision board. I have sent this on greeting cards and postcards to my fellow entrepreneurial friends too so that they could embrace it as their vision . I have had it on blog posts and websites. I really loved it and lived it.
… and then a few weeks ago I came across something written by David Wood and my old Manifesto sounded… well.. weak.
Here it is:
Adopted Manifesto from David Wood
My magic is, and always has been in my consistency, persistence, and unmovable vision.
I don’t care what obstacles I face – I will step into my vision.
It doesn’t matter who comes and goes.
It doesn’t matter how much it costs.
Or how much energy it takes to create it.
Or what distractions appear along the way.
I am Terezija Susak Kumric and I build dreams.
I crush obstacles in the face.
And I – along with those who are with me – will step into the greatest victory of them all.
Realization of the vision that’s on the inside.
Giving birth to a new YOU.
You see, I have grown and with it my dreams, my vision and who I am and what I believe I am capable of a doing has grown too. So my “old” Manifesto is still alive and well but kind of “wimpy” compared to what I saw on David Wood’s wall and what spoke to me and started a fire in me that got me beyond excited.
Care to join me on this journey?
To your success,
