It’s in the Air…

Hey Power Girl,

In Canada we just had a long weekend and let me tell you… ┬áSummer was in the air!!!!

I just LOVE summer time!

First of all I love the sunshine and warmth.

I love being outdoors and although you can be outdoors anytime of the year, I spend the most time outdoors in the summertime!!!

The great thing about summer, is that you can take the time to relax, read, or just try something new.

I think that it is important to use your summer to help you EXPERIENCE things that you don’t have time for during the year.

This summer I want to take some singing and acting lessons.

I’m so busy during the school year with school, dance training and making more cool Power Girl books and videos to help YOU!

I’ll be done school in two weeks and that will free me up to do other things. I’m so excited!!!

I think you should ask yourself what it is that you really want to do?

What excites you, or what do you have an interest in, that you just don’t have time for because of school?

Have you ever heard my Dream Big speech?

It is on my website.

Listen to it.

If you have listened to it before, listen to it again.

I listen to that speech over and over again, myself, because it focuses my mind and reminds me that I AM IN CONTROL OF MY FUTURE!

It reminds me to dream BIG and to believe in myself and to not ever limit myself.

I love the quote by Edmund O’Neil; “You are meant to be anything that you dream of becoming!”

Think about that…

Very simple…

Very powerful…

Don’t limit who you will become.

Dream BIG and work everyday to get one step closer to that dream.

My mom and dad are always telling my brothers and sister and I, that we need to wake up in the morning and live ABUNDANTLY.

Living abundantly means many things like…

Living life BIG.

Doing EVERYTHING full out!

Living each day as if it were your last. ┬áDon’t put off till tomorrow what you can do today.

Practicing the things that you want to become better at.

Practice DOESN’T make perfect.

PERFECT practice, makes perfect!

The reason I am sharing this with you is because summer is a time that allows us to work at becoming more than who we are today.

Don’t waste that time.

You could:

Hang out at the mall.

Go to every new movie that comes out.

Sleep in.

Surf the net.

Get caught up with your friends on Facebook.

Text your friends all day long.

Watch t.v.

Go to Starbucks for an Iced Frappuccino…..

While these things can be fun, will they help you reach your goals or dreams?

Obviously NOT!

You are meant to become whoever it is you dream of becoming!!!!

So dream BIG and spend your summer doing things that will help you get there!!!

I want you to take the time at the beginning of your summer (or even right after you read this), to create a VISION BOARD for yourself.

I created a vision board for myself almost two years ago.

This vision board has clippings from magazines that remind me of everything I want for my future.

It has WORDS that inspire me to work hard, and IMAGES of healthy behaviours that will help me to get from where I am to where I want to be.

This is my vision board.

It is in my room and I look at it everyday.

It reminds me to live abundantly everyday and to work towards making those visions and images a reality.

So I ask YOU, Power Girl, “What will you DO this summer to help you become who it is you dream of becoming?”

Will you:

Learn a new language?

Take a summer school course?

Take singing, acting or drama classes?

Do a Power Girl work out everyday?

Get extra training in your favourite sport or extracurricular activity?

Learn how to become a better reader or writer?

Whatever it is you decide to do, make sure it brings you a step closer to becoming who it is YOU dream of becoming.

Trust me Power Girl, YOU,AND ONLY YOU, CAN MAKE YOUR DREAMS COME TRUE!

Dream big, believe in yourself and work everyday towards accomplishing your goals!

I BELIEVE in YOU!

Summer IS in the air. I can smell it and I am making plans already to take advantage of EVERY day to get myself one step closer to MY dreams!!!

See YOU at the TOP!

Your friend and coach,

Jessy Lipke
