Ruby Slippers: You’ve Always Had the Power Within You
In the Wizard of Oz, Dorothy is on a journey to find her way back home from the strange land called Oz. Going home was her goal. Going home was simple, she was told. Just follow the Yellow Brick Road to Oz and find the Wizard. The Wizard will get you home. On her journey she met several companions, each with a dream. She ran into various obstacles, including the Wicked Witch- the ultimate dream stealer, and a Wizard full of promises, who was a fraud.
We all have people like that in our lives. Start a new business, or set a goal for your health like weight loss, and out comes the negativity. (Sometimes even from yourself!)
When the Wizard’s balloon takes off without her, she’s crushed. Another failure. Another missed opportunity. And she’s stuck with the sense that home (Success) is both very close (she just needs that ONE thing), and it’s a million miles away.
