“The only journey is the journey within.”- Rainer Maria Rilke
I have found a new calling in life. Passion is what drives individuals to be successful in life. When I speak of success, I’m not speaking in a monetary sense, but rather a personal growth sense. There are many times where we are presented with brick walls and challenges where it seems impossible to overcome. One of my favorite speakers, Randy Rausch, said it the best:
Brick walls are there for a reason. The brick walls are not there to keep us out. The brick walls are there to show how badly we want something. Because the brick walls are there to stop the people who don’t want something badly enough. They are there to keep out the other people.
- Randy Pausch ( 1960-2008 )
I know there are other people out there just like me who dream of traveling the world, learning new skills, helping others and enjoying life. We are all here for a limited amount of time and I’d like to make a visible footprint on the world for the better.
My goal with Forward Motion is to unite passionate individuals who have similar dreams and goals in life. I believe when these people become inspired and empowered, it has a ripple effect on those around them. It is my hope to build a community of individuals that will not only make their dreams a reality but also inspire others to take action in their life. There is so much I want to say and I hope others will join us as I believe most things are better when you are doing it with others. I mean, that’s why we are here right? We are all here on one earth. Although we are from different cultures and have different opinions on life, we are all one.
