I was in Toronto last month to see Rob Bell* and a speaker I’d never heard before was opening for him. His name was Peter Rollins* and MAN! He blew my mind.
The thing that he said that spoke most to me was:
Your dreams will not fulfill you.
And, because he’s dark and hilarious, he went on to say but go for them anyway because we all need a laugh and we’d love to see you spend your life chasing them. 😮
He said, go ask anyone who’s achieved their dreams and see if it was that actual dream that’s made them happy. Like, was it finally starting your own business, buying that house, or getting married that made a person fulfilled.
Nope. These events are fleeting. You get a huge rush from their realization but you don’t get fulfillment unless something else has occurred along the way.
Fulfillment comes from positively evolving yourSELF.
Your dream is like a symbol. It’s emblematic of that moment that you decide to honor yourSELF instead of what everybody else wants from you. It’s symbolic for choosing that fork in the road that represents aligning with who you are at your core.
So when people say “Follow Your Dreams”, that’s great advice. But not because what you get at the end is the prize.
It’s because of how you grow into the person that deserves that dream.
And there’s a way to do that with more ease and greater effectiveness. I’ve narrowed it down to 7 steps. These steps are the cornerstones of my DIY Destiny group program.
In this 7-week program, you will gain the clarity you crave to create the life that’s meant for you. And get the techniques to bring your vision to life faster.
Here’s what others are saying:
“FANTASTIC! I loved it. I am now more aware of how I posture and perfect when I feel threatened and I have tools that I can use to bring forth my “True Self”. Feeling my emotions and having language around them is an area that Jen Reed is amazing at guiding people through. I would recommend this workshop and program to everyone!”
Stephanie, Co-Active Life & Leadership Coach
“DIY Destiny helped me to find clarity and direction for myself. Jen’s energy and teaching ease, in combination with her personal examples, make it fun to listen to and inspired me to evolve major parts of my own life. We all only have one life. Striving for happiness for oneself and loved ones is a natural goal to work towards. Jen’s program helped me achieve just that!”
Hedda, Marketing Professional
“Jen’s ability to hold space and skillfully ask questions helped open me to my own wisdom and enabled me to connect to my power quickly. I worked with Jen at a pivotal time in my life. I was bringing a new business to launch and her coaching helped make the process less stressful and more empowered. And, through the connections made through the process, the positive effects extended far beyond my business, greatly enriching my personal life as well!”
Lara, Birth & Family Professional
