Are you a DREAMer or a Doer?


Surrounded by monkeys swinging from treetop to treetop, watching the waves crash in on the coastline of Nicaragua is an amazing time for reflection. Are you a dreamer or a doer?

It takes courage to bridge the gap between dreams and reality. Fear widens the gap. It has been a longtime dream of mine to bring likeminded people together at an amazing destination to experience growth, bonding and transformation. It has only taken this long, because of fear; fear no one would come, fear I would not be a good enough teacher and leader.

Inside each one of you is some kind of dream, some kind of desire to be happy, healthy and change the world in some way. Perhaps you dream of travel, starting a business, helping other people, cleaning up your neighborhood, having a loving relationship, peace in your heart, climbing a mountain, living sober, having children, adopting children, teaching yoga or leading a yoga retreat in a far away land.

Whatever your dream is, know that father time waits for no one. What better time than now? Dig into the recesses of your heart and remember a time when you were taught to believe in dreams and fairytales. Then close your eyes and ask what if dreams do come true? The only thing separating you from your dreams is Courage. Fear is like a deep, dark ravine that keeps you stuck in your current life situation. The ravine is an illusion. Simply find the courage to move forward and you will see it is not a hole, but a shadow. The closer you get, the more it disappears.

You don't need to make crazy rash moves, just find your voice and move slowly with courage in the direction of your dreams. Courage bridges the gap. Never stop being dreamer, just start being a doer.

Much and love gratitude to everyone who has been my friend and teacher encouraging me to encourage others. Being Happy Healthy and Fit means having Courage to turn your dreams into reality.
