Today's podcast episode was recorded the morning after the 2018 Midterm Elections. I was inspired by all of the female candidates and the various adversities they were faced with throughout their campaign. I realized that our reality stems from our vision.
Whether we think we can or we think we can't, we're right. Your vision is your reality, which is why it's so important that we define what we want our life to look like. It's also important that we believe in ourselves so our power is not dependent on others. As I reflected on the elections and what it must have been like to campaign, I kept landing on the fact that before they inspired voters, they all had to find inspiration within themselves. In order to push through and keep going, you have to believe in your vision wholeheartedly, which is sometimes challenging.
The most powerful dialogues that take place are the ones that no one can hear. The conversations that happen in our minds either serve as reminders as to why we should continue to stand up, or serve as negative manifestations that keep us down. In today's episode, I share two personal experiences that required my vision to prevail in order to turn them into reality. To-date, I continue to remind myself why I launched this platform because it allows me to create, despite sometimes feeling like no one is listening. My reality is created as a result of my vision and not the other way around. I don't wait for life to show up in order to see a productive and fulfilling life in my future.
Despite living through a time of political division and adversity, many women found the courage to stand in their vision and become a part of history. They inspired us in the process and I'm sure, will continue to remind us of our power as we set sights on a brighter future.
