Dream in Color

every girl loves m Positive Thinking

By Kanarian Kindred, Wellness Editor While on the quest to success you will encounter those attempting to make you feel small. Whether it’s a networking group, former colleague, or even family, it’s always someone determined to make you feel less of a person. Therefore, I want you to know; though your credentials aren’t at the level of some people… you matter. Never let dream killers dampen your spirit; instead dream even higher, in color at that. These inspirational points will help.... .. For starters learn the art of silence. Meaning, when you hold a dream within your heart it’s not always best to let everyone know. Though they have the best intentions, sometimes outsiders tend to push you away from success instead of to it. I can remember someone telling me, “Find three things in this world you want to do, then just do them. Don’t tell anyone until you’ve completed the task at hand. This will prevent the dream killers from destroying your focus.”


Second, do not let your age discourage you from pursuing your dreams. Though you might be older than most in that particular field, keep

shooting for the mark. I find society loves to place stigmas on older adults when it comes to XYZ. It might take longer than the rest, but if the talent is there it will happen. Just keep the faith. Lastly, never use your looks as an excuse to halt your dreams. It seems every time you open a magazine, a female has to look this way or this size for success, especially fame. I ask all of you to allow your inner beauty shine when chasing your dreams. Though it may seem on the model types get a chance at success, that’s so not the case. I want you to take a minute and review the audition video for Susan Boyle on Britain’s Got Talent. When she walked on stage (forty seven and slightly overweight) the people in the crowd laughed at her. In the end she got the last laugh as you can tell. In closing, I know the negative feedback from others can bring you down at times but never give in. Your breakthrough is just around the corner….. m
