The Launch of the Living My Dream! Blog Series


Jim Rohn, business philosopher and author once said, "The legacy we live is part of the ongoing foundations of life. Those who came before leave us the world we live in. Those who will come after will have only what we leave them. We are stewards of this world, and we have a calling in our lives to leave it better than how we found it, even it seems like such a small part."

When we read about the stories of people who have summoned the courage to become all that they can be, including efforts to make a difference in the lives of others, their actions inspire our heart with hope and encourages our faith with the belief that we can do the same. One of the reasons that Chicken Soup for the Soul continues to be such a popular and successful book series is because of how each of us relate to the personal stories shared in these books.

My mission here at Grow Forward & Flourish is to empower the seeds of greatness dwelling in your potential. By taking purpose driven actions that increase your capacity to be more, do more and experience more in life, you are preparing yourself today for the success you desire tomorrow. 

 Tomorrow, October 4, 2014 marks the launch of a new series of blog posts simply entitled, Living My Dream! Each post represents a profile of an individual who is living their dream to make a difference in the lives of others. These individuals are from all walks of life. They represent the multitude of people in our world who are not just talking about creating change but are actually taking action to be the change our world needs.

If you know of anyone in your community that is making a positive difference in the lives of others, please leave me a message on my contact page with their name, contact number and why you feel that their story and work will inspire the hearts and minds of others to live their dreams. 

Before sending me someone's information, please contact them and ask if they would be interested in sharing their story. If they say yes, by all means send me their email contact information. I will confirm the receipt of your message via email.

Living My Dream! posts will normally be scheduled to appear on this blog @ 2 pm twice a month on Saturday's starting October 4th, 2014. You can subscribe to my blog feed so that you receive weekly updates on this series and other personal development articles that will empower you to believe that you can manifest your dreams.

Tomorrow, you will have the opportunity to get to know Terra Davis-Adams, a lupus survivor and how she is living her dream as the Founder of the Hands Up Against Lupus non-profit organization.



To kick start your motivation towards living your dreams, I found this inspiring and motivating video that will help to fan your flame to be more, do more and experience more of what you truly desire in life.



Stay tune to Grow Forward & Flourish as I begin the process of migrating to the new Rainmaker Platform created by Copyblogger. This platform will provide me with a Word Press website that enables me to be more creative and resourceful as I make strides to build the GFF online community as a quality content rich website for DREAM ACHIEVERS.

8 Reasons You Feel Emotionally Exhausted

~ Oprah Winfrey ~

How often have you thought, “Where’s my get up and go? I’m tired all the time. But it’s not my body that’s tired.

Everything worth doing that’s difficult gets lost without it. Marriages fail when we run out of the emotional energy to reach one more time across the divide of anger and silence. Dreams die when we lack the emotional energy to hang in there in the face of all the obstacles.” In my blog post, Simple Steps to Mana…
