Monica’s Motivational Moment: Ease on Down the Road of Destiny and Purpose

In the Wizard of Oz, the main characters follow the Yellow Brick Road in search of what they believe they do not possess – a brain, a heart, courage, and a home. By the end of this classic tale they come to the realization they possessed all along the very things they sought. They were smart, loving, brave, and carried home within their hearts.

There are times when we lament our perceived shortcomings. We set out in search of a wizard who can make our dreams magically materialize. Afraid to take a wrong turn or make a mistake, we pursue perfection or delay our dreams waiting for guarantees.

Be encouraged. For at this very moment we are smart enough, loving enough, bold enough and blessed enough to ease on down the road of our destiny and purpose.

Monica’s Motivational Moment: Past the Gates of Certainty

We are challenged to find the courage to move away from our comfort zones, familiar paths and self-imposed limitations. Even though we crave safety and abhor change, we can no longer afford to exist in a place that robs our joy, depletes our soul, or suffocates our dreams.

We must allow commitment and curiosity to guide us past the gates of certainty in order to discover what lies beyond our created world of resentment, regret, self-righteousness and fear. While it won’t always be a challenge-free journey with a guaranteed destination, we possess enough talent and faith to move in the direction of our passion and true desires of our heart.

Monica’s Motivational Moment: Not Exempt but Well Equipped

We are not exempt from moments of dream-crushing doubt, disappointment, or feelings of inadequacy. We do have at our beck and call weapons that allow us to face our realities, rise from the ashes of our crisis, and believe from the highest point of possibility.

With each expression of gratitude, we can appreciate the milestones reached and miracles already received. With steely determination, we can focus on what is ahead, and not allow impatience to cloud our vision. With faith, we can renew our commitment and release resentment.

We may not be exempt but we are well equipped with gratitude, determination and faith.

Monica’s Motivational Moment: Upon Our Shoulder

Trying to please, placate and play small will not satisfy nor silence our critics. We can spend so much energy feeling demoralized by discouraging comments, or paralyzed by unsupportive colleagues and family members.

We must find the courage to move forward in commitment and boldness. The responsibility of manifesting our passions, purpose and pursuits rests squarely and lovingly upon our shoulders.
