Good afternoon Vanessa,
Are you seeking something far greater for your life? Do you have the feeling that you were destined for more?
If so, have you ever watched The Wizard of Oz?
Yes, those are Dorothy's actual red ruby slippers used in the film.
There’s a scene at the end of the movie where Dorothy asks the Good Witch of the North if she will help her to get home.
The Good Witch replies that Dorothy has always had the power to go home.
The Scarecrow, standing next to Dorothy, asks: “Well, why didn’t you tell her before?”
The Good Witch replies: “Because she wouldn’t have believed me. She had to learn it for herself.”
The Scarecrow turns to Dorothy and asks her what is it that you have learned?
Dorothy replies: “If I ever go looking for my heart’s desire again, I won’t look any further than my own back yard...”
I think this means that we each have an emotional compass inside of us that keeps pointing us back ‘home’, where we find our deepest desires and dreams.
Do you remember when you were growing up and you were full of dreams and possibilities?
Have you achieved them or are you still seeking something far greater for your life?
If so, I’ve been exactly where you might be right now. I know what it feels like when deep down inside you know you were destined for more but things aren’t going fast enough or you’re feeling stuck or frustrated.
The Wizard of Oz, like many other stories and movies, from Casablanca to Star Wars has its appeal in a classic storytelling arc called “The Hero’s Journey”, which often starts like this:
- The hero is in the ordinary world
- Something upsets the status quo and the hero is called to undertake an adventure
- The hero rejects the call
- The hero meets a mentor and gives the hero the courage to accept the call
Here’s something I’ve learned after helping hundreds of clients achieve their dreams. When you are seeking something far greater for your life, you need to create your own hero’s journey with you in the starring role.
You may just need a little guidance, mentorship or direction to get heading in the right direction but I can tell you from my personal experience that you can achieve a lot more than you think you can.
And all it takes to get started is for you to firmly decide to take the first step and saying “yes, I'm going to take that first step toward my dreams”.
