Make It Happen!

Our lesson today comes from song “What a Feeling” from the film Flashdance.

I’ve always found the movie Flashdance motivating. Take a young woman who has always had a passion for dancing and a dream to go to a prestigious dance school but who has had to settle for working in the steel mills by day and dancing as an exotic dancer by night. Find someone to believe in her dreams and the desire to work hard and have the passion burning in her soul. End the film with the dancer getting accepted into the school and fulfilling her dream and living her passion.


Isn’t that what we all essentially want? The ability to “take our passion and make it happen.” To find someone who believes in our abilities and will help us develop into the person we want to be.

If you set your goals or resolutions for 2019, what do they include? That’s the easy part – to look at where we want to be by the end of the year.

What few people think about is HOW they are going to go about achieving their passions.

So, today I’d like to challenge you to listen to the song sung by Irene Cara and let it move you to look inward to discover your passions, and THEN, begin to identify HOW you are going to work toward achieving your passions.
