INSPIRING HEALTH, WELLNESS AND JOY

There is one quality which one must possess to win, and that is definiteness of purpose, the knowledge of what one wants, and a burning desire to possess it.

– Napoleon Hill

Our Definite Major Purpose (DMP) 

Many of these modern-day gurus got their idea of a life goal from Napoleon Hill, who wrote the best-seller Think and Grow Rich. Hill published his book in 1937, right in the middle of the Great DepressionIn Think and Grow Rich, Hill introduces the idea of a Definite Major Purpose (DMP), which he defines as the one thing you want to accomplish in your life. It is your main mission in life. Think of it as a personal mission statement.

The main DMP for us at Beyond Adversity is to help people with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities and their carers. And that is using music, art, drama and dance therapy, using arts to learn, heal, and live.

 So why is this so important? There are two big reasons:

1. If you donʼt know what your DMP is in life, how will you know if youʼve been successful? We define our own success. At the end of our life, when all is said and done, we reflect back and decide if weʼve had a fulfilled life or not. And defining our own success also means that we need to define our own goal . . . so we know if weʼve been successful or not.

2. Defining your DMP will also bring you much needed clarity. You will find it easier to make decisions, to focus on the task at hand, and to have the drive to keep working at it until itʼs complete. You will inevitably feel frustrated, angry, stuck, and depressed during your private practice journey. But if you are clear with your DMP, you will have the drive and focus to keep going during the tough times. ( Kimberley Sena Moore, Music Therapist, and professor at the University of Miami)

~ KNOWLEDGE MAKES YOU BEAUTIFUL ~

Things that are beyond our control such as an illness can have a negative effect on our wellbeing, but with hardship comes ease. Remember, the struggle is an ingredient to success therefore one must be positive because everyone is born with a purpose. The search for ones treasure is a quest with many challenges and living with the words of Audrey Hepburn, "Nothing is impossible, the word itself says I'm possible!" we can truly move forward.

Disabled people can be very emotional due to their circumstances, however the most emotional people are the most creative and this quality can ignite positive results. On another note, Lateral Thinking is needed to achieve these small critical steps to paint the bigger beautiful picture. There is a science behind success & patience with determination is key.
