Aim For The Stars ! They Are There !

I received the tremendous news today , "Ronnie, you are off to the UK in July 2012, all paid for!".

Well, you can imagine my face, it was slow to begin with and then suddenly it burst into a huge smile. I have done it ! Above all, it has been educational, rewarding, fun and a whole lot of, extremely hard work. To top it all, the hardest part, is only about to begin.

So that's it folks ! I started as a volunteer in November of last year. Off I walked, into this new venture of mine, One of the really amazing journeys of meeting people from around the world. Authors, plane crash survivors, reporters, photographers, painters and many, other interesting people. Each and everyone, with their story to tell. Most of them happy with what life has dealt them.

I have tackled and challenged tasks that I would never of even imagined, come the beginning of last year. Late nights have become a regular occurrence to me. Researching on the internet to improve my skills. Chatting to one person for hours on end, to simply explain a banking system. Learning new programs and often teaching them too. Tolerance, patience and errors, laughter, frustrations and success.

I set out to travel this year, with more the intention of heading out to assist somehow at a Game Lodge, anywhere in Africa. Then, the opportunity hit, it was here, that I realized, I could be going on a wonderful trip to the UK. I calculated what I had to lose, not much at all, in fact, nothing ! That is about the last thing that I remember clearly, until today, when I received that call confirming that my dedication and commitment had paid off.

One cannot put into words, the satisfaction that you receive, once you are aware that your self improvement in life has created benefits for you. The amazing thing is, that once you achieve, you hunger for more, then more and so it continues. To not to have the fear of failure. To push forward and to not look back. It's your life, live it !

Gratitude is a huge plus here as well. It is through the help and support of other people, that make your dreams come true. The networking system, so to say. Understanding the values of networking helps in all spheres of business. Everyone wants to help, sometimes in just some small way, never-the-less, it all helps towards the end.

I learnt the values of letting go of fears and aiming for the stars, as a young woman. It has paid off every time.

So, why don't you try the same thing? Aim for the stars ! They are there !!

Oh I like what you added to that well known addict "Aim for the stars". I used to say "You might reach the moon" but I like "they are there" much better! It encompasses "believe" and "have faith". Thanks Ronnie.
