What would you REALLY love to do with your life …?

I would love to wake up every morning with a sense of excitement at what the day may bring, knowing that because I love what I am doing, the only work I undertake is that which fulfils my passions; I believe this is possible for everyone ... but who will listen?

I would love to live my life with a sense of belonging and excited anticipation, where everyone is able to share with others the magnificence of our world through the unlimited potential of imagination and interaction ... but who will listen?

I would love to be part of a global society where appreciation of our differences thrives and where everyone can be true to themselves without judgement; a society that promotes a respectful and enriching environment in which every individual can thrive according to their own ambition and contribution ... but who will listen?

I would love to see the day when responsible, productive and prosperous organisations are a true reflection of the wellbeing of the communities and individuals they serve ... but who will listen?

I would love to reach a point when fear and greed are weapons found only in history books and where helping others find enjoyment and fulfillment is the driving force of our growth and that of our children ... but who will listen?

I would love to participate in the empowerment, excitement and positive experiences of as many people around the world as possible, as I understand our world to be a reflection of the choices made by all of those who live in it ... but who will listen.

I would love to experience life through the creative thoughts in my mind which expand my heart every time I think about them ... but who will listen?

I would love for life to be the most exhilirating adventure that we all get to experience … but who will listen?

Feel free to contribute your own ‘I would love … but who will listen’ story and see where it takes you. You may be surprised at how many people are ready to listen.

Cheers, Ray
