Believe in Yourself
I woke up this morning with The Wiz on my mind. I don't know why. I like The Wizard of Oz, but I love The Wiz. I watched this YouTube clip of Lena Horne belting out, "If You Believe." I love stories like The Alchemist and The Wizard of Oz because the main character goes on this epic journey all to find out that they possessed the very thing they were searching for all along. Dorothy was wearing the very thing that could bring her home. Santiago's treasure was where his journey began. Most of us have to go on our own journeys of discovery before we truly believe in ourselves. We let fear and doubt hinder us from taking leaps of faith. We let our insecurities stop us from liberating ourselves. Believe in yourself. Trust your journey.
