Sending much love and inspiration from Central Australia as I adventure through the desert with 10 meditators and nature lovers on the Desert Dreaming Meditation Tour.
This week I am fulfilling a big dream of mine to run a meditation tour at one of the planets most powerful nature spots... the mighty Uluru. I have joined forces with an award winning Aboriginal tour guide and have created a life changing experience for people to connect deeply with themselves, nature and Aboriginal culture.
When I launched the tour back in February I had emails flooding in from all over the world from people who were inspired about the tour and really wanted to come along... but no bookings! Ahhh!
By the end of the first 2 months of the launch I had just two people booked in and it looked like my dream was not going to go ahead... at that staged it looked like a failure.
We may have the courage to take action on our dreams but if they don't take off straight away, many people give up and throw their dream away at the first sign of failure.
Over the years I have learned to befriend failure and have realised first hand that the road to success is paved with many failures.
The road to my personal business success is definitely dotted with hundreds of embarrassments, face plants, trips, falls, mistakes and so called failures. But each time I got back up from the fall, dusted myself off, fixed my eyes on my dream and kept going.
I learned to not be deterred by the appearance of failure and to reframe it as just a necessary hurdle along the way.
Each so called failure has taught me to tweak my offer, or to alter my approach, or inspired me to dig deep for inspiration to try something different.
Within each failure there has been a gem that has strengthened my determination, increased my knowledge through trial and error, and enhanced my motivation to create the dream life I yearned for.
So earlier this year when I had only 2 people booked in for the Uluru Tour after months of hard work promoting the tour... rather than throw in the towel and give up in miserable failure... I chose to keep believing in my vision and changed my promotional tactic.
AND it worked!
Over the next few months, I filled up the tour with 10 perfect participants who felt deeply drawn to the desert and were ready to investigate themselves on a deeper level and align fully with their soul.
This week as my dream tour has become a reality, I give thanks to each and every so called failure that has ever arisen on my path... as it has lead me to the magical life I live today.
So I urge you to follow your dreams with excitement and a deep belief in yourself. Don't worry if things don't flow right from the beginning. Be patient, trust and most importantly keep your eyes on your dream and it WILL unfold.
Failure is our friend not fo!
