Soulful Entrepreneur Business Coach
A Sprinkle of Fairy Dust
The ezine dedicated to bring you inspiration, innovation and fun

While we can’t always control what obstacles or challenges that come up along the way, we can face them with courage.  There is no doubt that it takes courage and support to accomplish greatness.

cour•age [kur-ij, kuhr-]  noun
1. the quality of mind or spirit that enables a person to face difficulty, danger, pain, etc., without fear; bravery.

When you have the courage to follow our heart, live our dreams, and focus ony our passion you are living an inspired, authentic life.   While this doesn’t mean it will always be easy or without obstacles or challenges, it does mean that you’ll have way more fun along the way and success in accomplishing your goals and living your dreams.

There are lists and lists of people who have courageously followed their dreams and long before we knew who they were taking inspired action.  Here are just a a few on my list:

•    It took courage for J.K. Rowling to keep sending out manuscripts of her book about the little wizard Harry Potter after countless publishers told her no.
•    It took courage for Malala Yousafzai to stand up for girls education and to continue to do so after being shot.
•    It took courage for Louis Hay to open her own publishing company believing that her message was important and wanting to share with the world when other publishers turned her down.
•    It took courage for Walt Disney to continue to pursue his dream of wholesome family entertainment when he was told early in his career he wasn’t a good artist.

I could list hundreds and hundreds of people whose courage inspires me and near the top would be  you.  You are one of those people who inspire me!

Trust yourself, you’re stronger and more powerful than you may realize or give yourself credit for.  Sure, it’s going to take courage for you to live your dreams, it’s probably going to take support from others who believe in you and your dream and for sure it’s going to take inspired action to make it happen.  Just keep going, you’ve got this.

Living your dreams may not be the easiest thing you’ve done………but I bet it will be the best.  Join me in resisting conformity and dreaming bigger than you think possible, I’m rooting for you and so are many others.

Wishing you all the love and success you desire now and in the future.

All the best,

The Power of the Mastermind

Soulful Video – Instant Inspiration

Music is one place where I find many inspiring people both especially at live events.  There is something so sacred and special watching musicians consumed with making music, sharing their art and allowing it to touch people in its own unique way, hoping that maybe one day they will be nationally or internationally recognized.   They show up each day even when only a few people know who they are and some of them may think they are crazy for following their passion.  Never knowing if the next song will be the “one”.

Michael Wansley aka Wanz is one of those inspiring people who keeps doing what he loves and recently was awarded a Grammy for doing just that. I had the fun and honor of seeing him on stage with the rest of the group in New Orleans last year.  In this video he shares a little of his journey,
