It’s been almost a year since I went to Breakthrough to Success with the Pathways to Success for Youth team and it completely changed my life. I was skeptical before I went but the experience was nothing short of revolutionary.
Being in that room all week breaking down limiting beliefs, connecting to my self through mind body and spirit, and connecting to others through vulnerable, honest, caring connection completely changed the way I live my life.
It all seemed divinely organized and came at the perfect time for me. personally. However, I saw the experience that the young people in our group had and I couldn't help but wish that I could have accessed those experiences and knowledge when I was younger.
Being a teenager or a young adult is not easy. Life is full of insecurity, confusion, exploration, rejection, and pressure to find yourself and your path. But we don’t always get the unconditional love and support that we need. We doubt ourselves and our passions. We hear all the limiting beliefs that life, the people around us, and ourselves tell us over and over again.
Imagine being in a classroom or at an event where a young person begins to feel like they aren’t alone; that everyone else is going through the same stuff and everyone has the same insecurities, fears, hopes and dreams. I felt that at BTS first hand.
You start to ease up on yourself and believe in what you love. You feel support from those around you and stronger in the face of those who don’t support you. You start to believe that whatever it is that drives you and you feel passionate about IS possible; that you can do whatever you want in life. How powerful would that be?!
Pathways to Success for Youth aims to bring this experience to young people across the country. I believe that it has the power to alter the way we raise our young people and in turn build a stronger, more positive society. Don’t you think?
