One of my fav posts ??@worldoffreedompd @worldoffreedompd - Gratitude is the highest frequency You can tune in to if you want to attract wonderful things in to your life. Start by taking stock of everything you have now and appreciating it deeply, remember to give more of yourself, whether it be time, advice, love and support to those around you. When you dream, look past that dream to something even better for yourself and even for others. Don't forget to take better care of your body, mind and soul, get enough rest, eat a bit better than you have been, do things that are exciting and fuel your passions. The only person in this life you need to impress is yourself, self love follows through to every aspect of your life. Be Kind, Compassionate and practice empathy - when you learn to appreciate differences in opinion/perspectives you grow even larger and brighter. Forget about making comparisons, you are as unique as your thumbprint and so is the other person, you can only have your version of bliss so learn to be satisfied with that and let go of past traumas and by all means don't even bother with current fears as those are only illusions of perceived harm that your brain projects in order to keep you one step ahead of the game. Forgive yourself during this time, as well as any others who you perceive have wronged you. Life is only happening through your decisions and actions. Stay committed to your goals and believe that everything is always working out for the highest good of all. No excuses - the story you tell yourself about anything is the key. As Mohamed Ali once proclaimed "I hated every minute of training, but I said - Don't quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion." Love yourself more each day by being grateful for your life and your relationships, everyone is operating at their own level awareness and may not necessarily be on yours, give love when in doubt, as the love you receive is in direct proportion to the love you give. - #regrann - #regrann

Place Wings On Your Dreams

 Place Wings On Your Dreams


We Need Dreams

Dreams are important. I’m not talking about the dreams you have when you are sleeping. I'm
talking about the dreams you have for your life and your future -- the dreams that keep you
going -- the dreams that make each day worth living.

Dreams Are Not Enough

As important as dreams are, they alone are not enough. Why you ask? Dreams do not take
you where you want to go. A dream needs wings -- to become a tangible vision -- a passion that will take you where you REALLY want to be.


Bethany Hamilton lives in Hawaii -- her passion is surfing -- her dream is to become a professional surfer. She spends every available minute in the water, even home-schooling so she can have more time to pursue her vision. At 8 years of age she entered her first major competition taking the division championships that year. Bethany's dream had become her passion -- a tangible vision.



When Your Vision Is Attacked

Bethany's vision was viciously attacked on Halloween morning, 2003, when she was 13 years old. Bethany was lying on her board -- left arm dangling in the cool water. She remembers a flash of gray, pressure, and a couple fast tugs. She also remembers watching the jaws of a 15-foot tiger shark cover the top of her board and her left arm.



The shark was gone as fast as it appeared
So was her arm.



What It Takes To Keep Your Vision Alive

Fast thinking friends and surgery saved Bethany's life. Everyone --
including Bethany -- believed her surfing days were over. But within a
week her vision returned -- she rejected the fear and thoughts of defeat.
Less than 30 days after the attack Bethany was back in the water. Her
family and friends were there to cheer her on.


Her first attempts were failures. She struggled to push herself up with
one arm and keep her balance.  Her fear was that her dream would die in
the water that day -- the shark victorious after all. Bethany pushed
down her fears, gritted her teeth, and kept trying.


And then it happened.


Tears rolled down her face -- the crowd cheered -- she caught her first wave and rode it in.


The Dream Takes Wings

Only months after the vicious attack, Bethany amazed thousands by
achieving the unimaginable -- taking 5th at the 2004 National Scholastic
Surfing Association National Championships. In September she struck
again, winning the Open Women's Division of the NSSA's Hawaiian conference
season opener. Having placed in the finals of the National Surfing ChampionshipsBethany had secured a spot on USA's National Surfing Team.



She has truly conquered her fears!                          


Five Ways To Put Wings On Your Dreams


Bethany's story shows us how we can put wings on your dreams:


1) Your dream must become your passion -- a tangible vision.


2) Everything you do should serve and fuel your vision.


3) When your dream is attacked, face the adversity squarely and choose
to overcome it with whatever it takes -- face your fears and do it anyway!


4) Make necessary adjustments -- regain your balance -- and keep your eyes on 
your goal.


5) Accept help when it comes -- with grace and gratitude -- allow it to fuel
your vision.


From Dream To Vision To Reality

Bethany's vision overcame her fear of sharks and her continued nightmares.
Her story teaches how to create dreams with wings that push you
toward your life-goals. Follow her example and your dreams will become
reality too.

Allow Your Dreams To Fly!
