Taking the leap into world domination

I used to be in a space where I didn’t know what I was doing next. Wait, I think I’m still here. Let’s try this again. I used to be at a state where leaping seemed scary. Where anything big was too scary. Where being unhappy was normal and accepted. Then I went to WDS (World Domination Summit) and from there a big leap (or leaps) didn’t scare me any more. I feel that once you find your right tribe, or your support group, that anything is possible. I only wish I had found my tribe earlier. How much further along would I be?

How much further along would you be?

WDS isn’t about the main stage or all the inspiration I still hear. Now, it’s more about the connections and giving back. I love being a volunteer and helping someone on the path that I’m on. Helping them wake up to the life they really want to live and not the one they may be living right now. To help shine the light of possibility and to keep that going throughout the year (with WDS local, co-working, Skype and in person coffee chats).

Who am I? Who are you?

Some say I am a catalyst and a connector. I think that works well for the volunteer role and my role in life. I love helping propel people forward. I love watching others leap into their greatness and their passions. I love challenging people to try harder and subsequently challenging myself to walk the walk…continuously.

I didn’t get to see most of the main stage speakers at WDS since I was mostly busy helping but I did ask people what their favorite one liners were. This is what they had to say, including a few of my own. I hope maybe it’s a spark for those that have never been and a reminder to keep the spirit alive for those that were there this year or in past years.
