Your soul's Truth (Maxwell's)

I believe that every one of us has something inside that makes us truly happy. Sometimes we come to a path and we can hear a little voice shouting at us, “Do it! Take it! Trust me!” We look, but the path is scary, and dark and we can’t see three feet in front of our noses. Too often we turn away and run back to the safety of what society tells us we should do. We do things that are “acceptable” or those things that make “good money.” We do the things that are not “impossible.” But impossible is for those who fail to dream.
I spent a long time doing what I was “suppose” to do. I avoided risks because they were scary. Then one day that voice in my head told me to write a book. I had never written anything before so I told it to shut up. The voice was relentless, and finally after six weeks I gave in, if for no other reason than to preserve my sanity. Fast forward eight years, I have published four novels. This summer I shut down my business, sold our home and downsized. I did everything the American Dream said NOT to do — I went backward. And that is where I find myself, living a dream.
None are so weak and so downtrodden as those who feel they don’t have a choice. In this talk I’ll share how I went from terrified to conquerer of my fears, and how YOU, too, can find yourself on the other side yelling, “It was worth it! It. Was. Worth. It.”
