Salt Lake City, Utah
Fall in love with your highest image of yourself. The more I look around at those people I want to emulate, the more I come to realize that they have one thing in common above all other things: They have overcome their fears. Roosevelt told us in his first inaugural address that the only thing we had to fear was fear itself. I suppose that in addition to quelling the national concern during the depression, he was also trying to nudge the people of the nation in the direction that would cause great change. A direction that would allow us to overcome our weaknesses and, as one, become a country filled with individuals who each, on his own, had reached whatever goals they had placed for themselves. So, have we? Or have we allowed our fears to keep us from attaining whatever it is we want in life? I suppose you may be wondering, why is this part of my bio? The answer is this: I have decided that, personally, my only fear is that I might become fearful. And because of this, the decisions that guide the direction my life is now taking have been altered and my biography is being redirected. I grew up in West Los Angeles in the 1970s. Became a product of the LA Unified School District - for better or worse; graduated from BYU with a 3.46 gpa and a degree in communications, but never had a clue how I was going to get what I wanted in life. I knew I needed to get a job. I knew I should marry and have kids... but I never really knew what I REALLY wanted. And If I looked too closely at a dream, I would dismiss it as unobtainable. That was then. I am not the same person I was coming out of college. I have clearly defined goals. I am watching them approach. I have no fear that what I want will never come to me, because I can see it coming... in fact, much of it has already arrived in my life. These sound like affirmations - but they're realities. What really excites me is that all I have to do is look around me and I can see the results of those clearly set and focused on desires. To pass this understanding of the power of clearly defined goals and determination on to my children, friends and loved ones is my greatest desire and would be the best part of any bio I could write for myself.
