Made for More. What do those words mean to you? For me, it's an eye opener. Last night I was surrounded by like minded women wanting more. Wanting to transform their lives into something extraordinary. I took my daughter, who by the way is leaving for college in 9 days to see a movie. Not just any movie, but Rachel Hollis's Made For More film. I had purchased us tickets the moment I found out her story/conference/sneak into her life would be shown on the big screen. She's a force to be recon with. She started her business with only a high school diploma, but more than that, she has created a wave of change. A down pour of self love, big dreams, and not taking no as answer. 

As I sat there with tears rolling down my face at a certain time during the show(trust me, I wasn't alone), I kept going back to the quote "if you could not fail, what would you attempt to do?" Sit with those words for a minute. Really, let them sit. 

What big dreams do you have? I have so many. In fact, I have a whole notebook filled with them. It's usually the same ones year after year. So why have I not reached any of them yet? 

There is was. I had been finding excuse after excuse to why I wasn't reaching those dreams. It's never going to be the right time, the right moment, the right circumstances. Never.

No, now is the time. Now. Not tomorrow when you feel up to it, not next week when the schedule is better, not next month when you have a little more money, not next year when you want to....fill in the blank. 

The next thing that really hit me was when she said focus on ONE goal. One? I have like 20 right now running through my head. That's the problem. I had never thought about it like that. I've always had so many I was working on at one time, but never really reached what I would call finishing those current goals/dreams. Hummmm, so what if we worked on ONE goal and filled our time & energy to fulfilling that one dream? 

I was intrigued. What if I put all my energy into one goal that I KNEW would propel me to the next one. I came home revived. REVIVED 

That's how she does it. She fires you up so much that you have no choice but to really reflect. 

I came home and began my list. This list was different. I had ONE goal I wrote at the top and underneath it were all the actions I could take to reach that goal. How long will it take? Only you can answer that question. 

I am #madeformore. I wasn't just put here to live & die. I wasn't. I was made to do something extraordinary. I have to stop being so scared to tell my whole story. My whole story is what make me who I am. Lets begin...
