“Never underestimate the power of dreams and the influence of the human spirit. We are all the same in this notion: The potential for greatness lives within each of us.”

 

~Wilma Rudolph

 

I would venture to guess that you have never heard of Wilma Rudolph. I know I hadn’t until I read this quote. Well, she was an African American, southern born sprinter woman who became a world-record-holding Olympic champion runner after competing in the 1954 and 1960 Olympic Games. Let’s just think about that for a moment. 

A black woman…

2 years after desegregation…

Wow! Talk about a powerful woman! Now let’s reread that quote. “Never underestimate the power of dreams and the influence of the human spirit. We are all the same in this notion: The potential for greatness lives within each of us.”

The first sentence of the quote speaks volumes to me. We are all so powerful and that all starts with our dreams. Abraham Hicks talks about the 3 steps of creation, the first of which it to ask. This is ‘the work’ of being human and arguably the hardest part of the journey. To ask though, you have to be willing and able to dream and to imagine!

She achieved so much and overcame so many obstacles and then says, “We are all the same in this notion: The potential for greatness lives within each of us.” and it does!

In this time of divisiveness and violence, lets take a moment to honor the power we all have inside of us. The power for good. And the first step in honoring that power we all have it to honor it within yourself.

I believe you are beautiful and perfect exactly where you are! Do you believe it too? How can you see the good in others when you don’t honor that good within you? How can you honor the beauty and power in others when you don’t honor that within you first? 

So today, find your power! Own your own power! Get creative and find your voice! You are so powerful so how can you express that today?
