Don't let anyone tell you..."You Can't!"....... Reach For Your Dreams!!
May 22, 2014
A friend of mine recently shared this video of Jill Scott receiving her Honorary Doctorate Degree from Temple University. Her speech was such an inspiration and it reminded me that no matter what other people may so or think about you, don’t ever let that stop you from reaching your dreams. In her speech Dr. Scott talked about the list of things she wanted to achieve in her lifetime. She spoke about the “naysayers” who said it could never happen. When she was twelve years old one of the things she placed on her list was that she wanted to be a doctor some day…years later it happened!
I love to hear stories about people who found a way to defy the odds despite their circumstances and all of the negative feedback their critiques may have said! These stories push me to reach for those goals that seem impossible to some. We all have the potential to “Defy The Odds,” it’s just a matter of us putting our minds and hearts in tune with the possibility and stepping out in faith to see those dreams reached. Each year I write a list of goals and aspirations I want to accomplish by the end of the year. This year one of my long-term goals is to be completely debt free by the end of 2017. This is definitely an audacious goal and will require a huge amount of discipline but I am determined to make it happen.
Do you have any goals that you’ve set out to accomplish that seem impossible to reach?
Don’t let anyone tell you, “you can’t do it….” Not even yourself!
Check out this video by “Dr. Jill Scott.” This phenomenal woman will have you smiling from ear to ear!
