Issue #79 – Monday, September 18, 2017
Remember high school?
Was it all prom king/queen and football/cheerleading for you? Were you class president? Or were you more of a geek in the back row with your thick glasses and pocket protector?
And where are you now? Have all your hopes and dreams come true?
I’m thinking back to my highschool days because Mary Morrissey and I went to school together, all those many years ago. (And if you don’t know who Mary is, definitely read on, because she’s amazing...
...and one of the most influential and powerful people I know!)
Mary and I both experienced many struggles on our journeys to success. At times, no one believed in either of us.
Worse: There were times when we didn’t believe in ourselves.
But we both learned how to overcome seemingly insurmountable obstacles – real and imagined – and have gained invaluable lessons along the way.
Today, we are both living the lives of our dreams and we’ve dedicated our lives to helping other people create…
...the same dramatic transformations we’ve enjoyed in our finances, relationships, health, careers and more.
In this issue of Mind Power, I’ve invited Mary to contribute a feature article, called, “Is it Selfish to Pursue Your Dreams?”. This is so powerful because…
...one of the deep-seeded and limiting beliefs you may have is that your dreams are selfish (or that you don’t deserve them).
So please, read this article right away. Mary has an uncanny knack for cutting straight to the heart of the matter…
...and changing lives in the process.

Is it Selfish to Pursue Your Dreams?
by Mary Morrissey
Have you ever wondered if it’s selfish to pursue your dreams?
The answer to this question is: It depends! It CAN be selfish to pursue your dream, if your dream is only about you.
But most dreams, even the ones that may seem selfish to you, actually DO benefit the world around you!
Let me explain:
After investing the last 40+ years studying the spiritual side of success, and the last 30+ years coaching tens of thousands of people in the art and science of transformation, I’ve found that every single person has a “hidden” longing — a deep yearning — to live a life that they truly love…
And this is by design!
We Live in an Upward Spiral Universe
This power called Life that moves through all things is ever-seeking to expand around you and through you.
In the Talmud, it says, “Every blade of grass has its angel that bends over it and whispers, ‘Grow, grow, grow!’” That little blade of grass will press through cement, seeking the light.
Each one of us is a growth-seeking being by design. When we move in the direction of what we would love, and we learn and grow and stretch ourselves, this gives us LIFE.
When we close ourselves off from opportunities for personal growth and self-development, and we stay stuck or stagnant, this is where dissatisfaction and unfulfillment come from.
But it’s always your choice.
You Have Been Given Dominion over Creating
Your Own Experience of Life
Because here’s the truth: Keep breathing, and you will create results. You don’t get to NOT create.
If you decide to stay in bed all day with the covers over your head, you create a day of being in bed with the covers over your head! You are always creating SOMETHING with your energy, your intentions and your actions, but you have a choice.
You can create consciously or unconsciously, by design or by default.
If you’re going to be creating anyway, why not create what it is that you would love?
So it’s perfectly natural, it’s actually in harmony with your being, for you to want to seek out opportunities for personal growth and self-development, and to expand and pursue your passions, interests, and goals.
Many of us have thought, “Well, if I could just be perfect enough, my life would be great, and I’d feel happy.” But perfection is not the secret to happiness…
Leaning into Opportunities for GROWTH is
the Secret to Happiness
Dreams are images that you have of your life in a more expanded state.
They are visions of what your life would look like if you experienced more expansion in the areas of your health, or your relationships, or what you do with your time and talents, or the kind of time and money freedom that you would like to have.
As you pursue your dreams, not only do you begin to generate extraordinary results, your sense of aliveness grows…and this aliveness ripples out into the world around you.
Others notice it, and they feel inspired to pursue their own personal growth, self-development, goals and dreams.
In this way, each of us, following our dreams, can transform the world.
When it comes to you and your dreams, ask yourself, “What positive benefit would this dream coming true have for the people around me… my family, my friends, my community?”
Even if your dream is to find the love of your life, and you think, “Oh, my gosh. That’s kind of a selfish dream, because that’s just about me having the love of my life!” Consider this…
If you’ve ever walked down the street and you see an older couple shuffling along, but holding hands, and you feel the love between them… or you see that young couple sitting by the beach and they’re snuggled up, and you can feel the love between them…
Or you see two middle-aged people walking through a grocery store and laughing and joking, and buying something for their meal that night, and the love between them is palpable.
Any Time Two People Presence Love, it’s a
Blessing to Anyone Who Witnesses it
So actually, it’s FAR from selfish to pursue your dreams.
You following your dreams actually helps all of us. The increased sense of aliveness you feel and express when you’re living a life you truly love inspires others around you to do the same. And in this way, the entire world changes.
