Sunday, April 29 was World Wish Day, and I joined Alyssa Milano and 1500 people on the Fox TV lot to walk to raise money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation. This date honors the anniversary of the first wish granted to a boy named Chris, who wished to be a police officer. Granting his wish inspired the creation of Make-A-Wish. If you're inspired to donate to help these courageous kids, you can do so here.

In honor of this day, I wanted to write about what touched me most: faith. Like many, I find myself at point in life where I just don't have the same willpower I once did. I tell myself to do things like eat healthier or get more exercise, but I'm just not motivated the way I used to be. When giving up is not an option, but motivation isn't working, where else can you turn? 10 Simple Steps To Make Your Dreams Come True

Consider faith. Getting in touch with what you believe or hold to be true is one of the most powerful forces in the universe. Many of us have deep faith but have forgotten how to tap into it personally. I have been doing a great deal of exploration on this and have found that I often have to remember to believe, to literally and consciously choose to believe and then act on what I believe to prove that I actually do.

I recently attended a convention that I have gone to for many years and I caught myself having negative thoughts and beliefs. I believed that everyone had already hired me and therefore there were no more opportunities there for me. Those negative beliefs quickly took me into feelings of despair as I began to shrink and withdraw. As I disappeared into my fear and doubt, soon no one was talking to me. Then I realized, I was creating my reality.

Based on what I wanted, I asked myself what I could believe. I could believe there were countless opportunities there for me, not just for business, but also that for making new friends and having fun. I chose to believe this was the perfect place for me to be. Then I set an intention to easily meet great people. Suddenly, it was like I entered a different reality.  Within minutes I shifted who I was and my world transformed with me. Within an hour, two people I had never met before hired me! And that evening I had a real blast, including dancing.
