Dream Come True

If you know my sister Leila, then you know that she is amazing at creating what she wants. My mother has always encouraged us to go for what we want and create possibilities. Well this weekend was all about jumping and hoping we fly. Not only did we fly but we soared.

One day on Twitter.com @Unmarketing told me he was going to speak at the Extreme Business Makeover in Orlando, Florida. I started asking Scott more about the XBM, turns out he gave me two tickets for my mom and me to go to this amazing conference in Orlando. I was so excited to go but I would have to find the money for the gas to drive down there and to pay for our hotel room.

Then another problem came up. What where we going to do with Leila? I talked to my mom and we decided that this was an amazing opportunity and that Leila was going to have to go with us. I got an idea. What if we could take Leila to Disney? We talked to Leila about this idea and she went and got her calendar. It showed a little Mickey Mouse head on this weekend. She said she put it on there two months ago. Amazing how we can set our intention towards something and make it happen. We left about 2:00 pm on Friday. We pumped up the music and jammed the whole 2½ hours to Orlando.

The beginning of this story is too boring if you know my life but don’t worry it gets more interesting. My mom had been to the hotel before and knew Orlando pretty well. So were driving and we got off the wrong exit in the middle of the city and in Orlando. You can’t just turn around so we are trying to figure out how to get back. On our search to find out how to get back to the main road, we passed the indoor skydiving place and I told mom how much I have always wanted to do something like that.

Finally we are back on the road we need to be and we get to the hotel right as the conference was ending. It was ok though because we got to introduce ourselves and do some networking. WOW there where some amazing people there. Poor Leila kept asking about Disney and when we where going. Someone over heard and told us that they thought Disney let people in for free after 4:00 pm. So we jumped in the car and went to Disney to see. We got all the way to the main gate and they said we had to have a ticket. Leila was sad and upset because she couldn’t go to Disney.

If you think that Leila didn’t get to go to Disney and we went to the business conference for the rest of the time we where in Orlando, you’re wrong. LoL.  Mom was racking her brain on ways to get into Disney, and then it hit her. One of our best friends has a daughter that works at Disney. She jumped on the phone and called. She said that she could get three people in. It was perfect, we only had three people. She said she wasn’t working that night but she was working Saturday at 2:00 pm.

 

We went to the XBM till 12:00 pm and then went to Disney. We had an amazing time. The message I got at Disney was “Dreams will come true if you believe”. WOW. It was the exact message that I needed to here. I am so thankful that Walt Disney created such a magical place.

 Around 10:00 pm we where watching the fire works and we got the perfect seat. Tinker Bell flew right over us. It was so cool. When we got home we all crashed. Our alarm didn’t go off when it was supposed to so we where late for our get together with Scott.

Our meeting with Scott was really cool. He gave me some great advice on unmarketing. All though I lost my IPhone I had a great day. The speakers on Sunday where wonderful and just what I needed to here. It was brilliant. Everything was like it had been planed weeks in advance but it wasn’t. It was us just going with the flow.

 The XBM was over and we where going to go get something to eat and then head home. We where walking by the pool on our way to get something to eat. We decided we where going to eat by the pool and then go swimming. You never know who you are going to meet in the pool at a very large hotel. There was a really nice couple with a beautiful little girl. The little girl was about 5 and loved horses. So I started telling them about what I do and how my passion for horses has changed my life.

I advised them to allow her to follow her heart because you never know where I could take her. We kept talking and discussing different things and we began to ask what he does for a living. Turns out he owns the number 1 hottest attraction in Orlando. Guess what it is, the sky diving place.

An idea popped into my head. I wanted to go sky diving and they where going to invite me to do it. As I told you before we where taught to create what we want and look for possibilities. Trust me I jumped on this one. I got to go indoor sky diving with my mom and sister. Boy was it fun. I don’t think I stopped smiling whole time.

We went to Orlando with no extra money, not sure how we where going to go to Disney, and had no idea that I was going to get to go skydiving. As Mickey Mouse “Dreams will come true if you believe”.

 

I will be sure to post a link of the skydiving footage when I can get it up.
