To instill the feeling of confidence in one’s ability to do or try something that was once intimidating. To gain a sense of independence and autonomy, to feel prideful of one’s actions and interactions. To know one’s worth and to stand up for what is right and feel control and power in one’s situation.
To be a role model that not only “talks the talk” but “walks thewalk”. To instill the urge or ability to do or feel something, especially something that will add joy, health, and wellness to one’s life. To influence others in a way that excites, encourages, and motivates an individual so their personal growth can occur.
To bring people together. To celebrate differences, diversity, and appreciate our uniqueness and how that contributes to our human experience. To seek to learn from one another, grow relationships, and build meaningful connections.
“I’ve come to believe that each of us has a personal calling that’s as unique as a fingerprint- and that the best way to succeed is to discover what you love and then find a way to offer it to others in the form of service, working hard and also allowing the energy of the Universe to lead you.”-Oprah Winfrey
