With so many distractions in our adult lives, we sometimes forget to reconnect with those amazing feelings from our youth. Fortunately, author Elaine Morales is here to teach us “Feel Like a Rock Star!”
Starting at a young age, we develop dreams of being an Olympic athlete, becoming President of the United States, performing before tens of thousands at Madison Square Garden or winning the National Spelling Bee championship (or is that just me?).
We may think that it’s fame, fortune or recognition we’re after, but I think it’s something else. We want to FEEL what we think it will feel like to be a superstar. Happy, proud, loved and accepted.
Not many of us will earn a gold medal or a gold record, but we can get that feeling…at any stage of life.
You can feel like a rock star by:
- Setting your sights on some pretty bold and seemingly unreachable goals and then going out there and getting it done. Do you want to learn to drive a race car? Start a new business or not-for-profit? Change outdated town or school board policies? Get up and rock it!
- Breaking down your personal barriers. Every time you feel scared and do it anyway or cross off one of your “I could nevers,” you earn rock star status!
- Lighting up someone’s life. Whenever you pay someone a compliment, soothe hurt feelings, show someone compassion, or give a helping hand, you not only make that person feel good, you feel like floating on air.
You don’t need to have national news coverage to feel like this inside:
Live boldly and give generously, and you can be a rock star in your own life.
