At the 2014 Disney Dreamers Academy in Orlando this past weekend, the first thing that Breakthrough Specialist Lisa Nichols said to the audience of Dreamers’ parents and chaperones was this: “You don't get to live your dreams through your children, your spouse, your friends or your family. You don't get to put your dream on hold because you got hurt, you just don't. You're not too old, too tired or too broken to live a better life because you've tapped into your purpose.” It was a powerful message of empowerment and encouragement as tears flowed and dreams came into view. Here are few more of Nichols’ tips to help you reach your destiny.
