In Pursuit of a Dream

For several years I have been hoping to attain the dream I discovered back in the year of 2000. I had discovered the teaching on the personalities and was certain this was the dream of my life that I was to pursue. I felt a great calling in which I was supposed to conduct personality seminars. Of course I knew that when people realized what I was doing, crowds would flock to hear this life changing information. Over the years of discouragement and failure I began questioning if this was truly the dream I was to seek out. What I didn’t realize was this was only the beginning and I had much more to learn and I still do.

After failure and exasperation I decided that maybe this wasn’t the trail I was to follow. Certainly if this was the direction I was to go, God would have paved the way and doors would have flung open. Needless to say they didn’t and they haven’t. Several years later I attended something called the “Life Enrichment Boot Camp” and my eyes were opened to a world I had never imagined. It wasn’t long after this that I realized that teaching personalities was just the beginning and little did I know at this time much more was to come.

One day as I was lost in thought an idea rushed through my mind. I thought it would be interesting and convenient if someone were to create a variety of seminars along the general theme of personal growth. You know, like to have a buffet of classes to choose from. Little did I know at the time this was going to be me. Through a series of events in my life I was given the tools to write several seminars and I also discovered I had a talent for doing this.

Since June of 2000 the path has wound in many directions and has gone to many places I’d never imagined. The dream I initially had has not changed, but its purpose has been broadened and more defined. In the beginning I thought I was to teach personalities because I believed this to be my dream. Now I know my purpose and dream is to help others to discover and fulfill their dreams.
