Can you imagine the day that your dreams are coming true? Everything is falling into place and your hard work is finally paying off. That day happens to be today for me.
Last Friday, I had the privilege of attending a Women Inspiring Women event where Jack Canfield was the featured speaker. Jack was his normal brilliant self and conducted a wonderful workshop. But the highlight of the day came during the break when I got to meet and take a picture with Jack. He was very welcoming and genuinely interested in my question: “Would he take a look at my book, “Water Safety with Swimmy”? It is an easy read and you could have it done by the time you get to Boston.” Well, he agreed and today in the mail I got the best endorsement from Jack Canfield, Coauthor of Chicken Soup for the Parent’s Soul: “Every child needs to know these rules. Since we have a swimming pool, I will be sharing this book with my 3 year old grandson when he visits next time.”
One of Jack’s Success Principles is that you have to “Ask, Ask, Ask”. If you want something, you have to be willing to ask. I took the chance (even though I was scared to approach someone so successful to ask him for this favor) and it really paid off. Thank you so much Jack Canfield. You have given me so much in the little time we have known each other: confidence in myself, confidence to take the leap, and the true belief that when you have a dream you have to just go for it and believe that the road between here and there will unfold somehow.
Who’s ready to make their dreams come true?
