Until I had identified what was keeping my back as well as acknowledging where I wanted to go, I was for all purposes just another person with ideas. Those ideas were forever locked away in my subconscious. Sure I had an opinion like anyone else on different subjects,but for a long time I gave up the spotlight to those whose voice was louder in volume than mine.

The shift began when I would have conversations with other mother’s or co-workers about different things that were going on in the world. Once I had a conversation with a woman who was visiting the hospital at the same I was some years ago when my own mother was a patient there.The conversation sticks out in my mind because of her reaction to what I had to say. It was at that moment that I realized I could affect the way we all deal with each other.

It was at that moment that I became aware of how powerful the spoken word is. My message to her was not unusual, it was the words I selected that made the connection. This simple situation opened the door for a whole world of opportunities that I am now just beginning to receive. All because I put into writing what I needed to do and why.

I look at my mission statement every day. It helps to keep me on track with what I want to do and why I want to do it. Putting it into written form make it more concrete for me. It might be of service to you as well!
