SWAN Saturday: Create the Life of Your Dreams

DenaSeptember 18, 2010

SWAN (Stop Wasting Away Now) Saturday is a weekly dose of inspiration from me to you. Each week I will make a short video post about something on my mind. The posts will be unscripted & shot straight from my soul. Stop wasting away now, life’s too short!

(If you can’t see the video, click here.)

Bonjour! This week’s short & sweet SWAN post finds me in Paris, France—just a few steps away from the Notre Dame Cathedral. This is a quick post to talk a bit more about how you can overcome your fears, stop making excuses, and start creating the life of your dreams. Right now, me being in Paris is a huge part of me doing just that. I have long dreamed of visiting Paris.

Three weeks ago, I quit my job after three years. I was ready for a change & ready to start taking some big steps toward creating the life of my dreams. (More on this later…) So, I quit my job and I booked my flight to Paris! How’s that for putting an end to excuses?

Yes, you can do what you want. You can create the life of your dreams. It’s just a matter of:

  • Overcoming the fear
  • Stopping the excuses
  • And taking action.

It’s that simple, three steps toward creating the life of your dreams. Hope this quick message gives you a jolt of inspiration today! Sending you love & light from Paris.
