Here’s a secret: to make a difference in the world, you first need to turn inward and figure out your dreams.
Why? because when you are in alignment with your north star, and you know what gives you juice, you then become unstoppable in whatever arena of social change you’ve decided to engage.
Walt Disney said: â€śIf you can dream it, you can do it.â€ť
All thatâ€™s in the way is to give yourself permission to make it happen. What better way to do that than in a safe, stimulating and fiercely compassionate environment of fellow dreamers?
