Jiminy Cricket and Powerful Presence

When I was a kid, I had a great fondness for Jiminy Cricket singing the song, When You Wish Upon A Star.
 
That song was 12 years old when I was born; my Mother sang it to me when I was a baby and showed me how to wish upon a star when I was old enough to point at one and speak a wish. As I got older, I sang it  it every week as everyone in my family watched The Wonderful World of Disney on Sunday nights. The idea of wishing upon a star, speaking my dreams out loud and expecting them to come true is in my bones.
 
I realized this morning that Jiminy Cricket gave me the idea that’s at the heart of Powerful Presence: “You bring about what you think about.” Look at the words of the song and you’ll see what I mean:
 
When you wish upon a star, makes no difference who you are,
Anything your heart desires will come to you.
If your heart is in your dreams, no request is too extreme,
When you wish upon a star as dreamers do.”

 
In case it doesn’t sound very professional to be inspired by a singing cricket, think about what it’s done for the Disney Corporation!
 
And of course it does take more than a wish and a dream to make things happen; it takes action and focus and belief. Make no mistake, though ~ just like the significance of that cricket can be easy to overlook, the importance of wishes and dreams can get lost in the busyness of work and the demands of life. As easy as it can be these days to miss this, I hope you won’t. Everything great begins with a wish or a dream.
 
I’m thinking of that song this morning because  this week, more of my dreams are coming true.
 
It’s been a full year since the first Journey to Powerful Presence teleclass began. The dream I had last year has now taken wings; the fifth and sixth classes are both in session now and the seventh one starts on Monday. Tomorrow at 11:30, almost 20 women will be joining me for the first monthly Powerful Presence Alumni and Friends Luncheon at Vaccaro’s Trattoria. Alumni from each of the previous classes are coming together to deepen the conversation about Powerful Presence with each other and share it with the guests who are coming to discover more about it.
 
No dream comes true without focused action and the contributions of others who get inspired from hearing about it. Today I’m full of gratitude for everyone who’s taking this Journey with me, whether it’s reading this blog and my newsletter or joining me in the classes and sharing the experience with others.
 
Ever since humans could wish on stars or speak our dreams or boldly go where none had gone before, we’ve been creating wonders in the world. Everything great that you’ve ever heard of started as a wish or a dream.
 
What are you dreaming about right now?
