WHAT IF I TRAVEL TO ALL 50 STATES INTERVIEWING SUCCESSFUL WOMEN IN ORDER TO EMPOWER OTHER YOUNG WOMEN?
That was the idea that kick started this journey. I was at a conference taking notes when the idea came to me. I was so excited, I immediately shared it with the stranger sitting next to me, because apparently, that’s just what you do, at least that’s what I did.
Her response? “That’s a great idea, but you don’t have any money.”
How she came to that conclusion, I will never know. But she spoke my fears and I agreed with her. And just that quickly, I gave in to doubt and delayed going after my dream for years.
Fortunately, the dream and the desire to empower women refused to die. Unfortunately, when people tell us we can’t, too often we believe them and walk away from our dreams and ideas. With I Dare to Dream Project, we’re on a mission to change that.
Why? Because we believe in dreams.
Our message is simple – refuse to allow people, fears or circumstances to dictate what’s possible and to keep you from pursuing your dreams. In other words, Do It Anyway.
Is it amazing when people believe in you? Absolutely.
Do you want the support of friends and loved ones? Without a doubt.
However, if they doubt (and they might) and if they tell you you can’t (and some will), even when “they” is really you (and it often is), I dare you to do it anyway. Dare to dream, then dare to pursue your dreams unapologetically. Because you can. Because you must. Because why not.
