What stands between you and your dream?

Fran's Tips
Three things need to happen for a Stellar Beginning to occur. You need to:

  1. Decide: that you are ready for something new.
  2. Declare: state your intention to others
  3. Pursue: find opportunities to do it - or find people doing it you can learn from
>>Decide, declare, and pursue your dream or goal with action in mind. This brings you support and movement from others.

>>Connect with or interview someone who is living a similar biography. Someone who succeeded with the same obstacles and fears that have prevented you from pursuing your dream. (Are they a single mom? Didn't have the education? etc.) Questions to ask: What was stopping you from pursuing your dream? Obstacles? Fears?
