I think if I had a special power besides cloning myself, it would be changing other people. There is nothing more difficult than watching people you love make mistakes that you know are only hurting them.
Are you stuck in some area of your life? In your business, relationships, weight, confidence... do you feel like you're looking for the missing piece to finally shift it? Do you think you may be the one causing yourself pain? Are you finally fed up and done?
Wayne Dyer's passing last week touched so many millions of hearts. It's a testament to how many million people's lives he impacted. How can one person have the capacity to lift so many people up and show them their light?
Perhaps Wayne will live on in life's simple joys, such as tender moments, stopped and savored with loved ones. In the deep peace of solitude; in fireplaces, steamy tea cups, good books, and thoughtful days.

Not dying with your music still in you is not about what you "do with" your life. It is about how you lead your life. Raising children to dance to the beat of their own drum means raising them first to hear, and then to follow, their own inner calling.
As it so turns out, being rich isn't bad at all. In fact, I've discovered that true spiritual alignment means living one's soul's purpose and when you're truly living your soul's purpose you are rich -- like cash money rich.
