When my friends Lara Casey and Jeff Holt embarked on the Making Things Happen Intensive tour, my interest immediately piqued. Â Lara and Jeff share my passion for encouraging people to do what they were designed to do, and giving people the push they need to make that first step towards their dreams is really what this workshop is all about. Â There were tears, vulnerability, and all things associated with sharing your heart. Â Embracing your dreams and living your passion can be, check that, IS very scary. Â Even to speak what is dearest to your heart (as one attendee found out) can cause you to hesitate. Â Lara and Jeff are doing an amazing thing by challenging each small group of wedding professionals they meet with to first commit to your passion, and then to MAKE IT HAPPEN!
We we’re all designed to do something; something that makes you come alive. Â Doing what you love for a living is the definition of a fruitful, fulfilled life. Â I am living that life. Â I desire for everyone experience that. Â I believe that everyone can. Â The catch is that it’s not free. Â It will cost you more than you can imagine. Â It’s the riskiest thing you will ever do. Â It’s your heart that is at stake. Â Your passion is the prize possession of your heart, and to put that on the line is to put yourself in harms way. Â To RISK the world rejecting you. Â To RISK failing at the thing you want most. Â It will cost you everything.
But that’s the thing about design.
When you are designed to do something, you can’t help but succeed. Â Because of the One who designed you. Â ”He don’t make junk” ladies and gentleman, and He doesn’t waste passions. Â He gave you the desires of your heart for a reason. Â You are designed to succeed in that which you are passionate about. Â You may not make the most money. Â You may not have the most fame. Â But you will have JOY. Â That elusive quality that separates those people who live from the people who are ALIVE.
