“Vision is not enough. It must be combined with venture. It is not enough to stare up the steps, we must step up the stairs.”
What do you want? I mean really, really want.
We don’t want to hear about your iPad envy or covetous Amazon.com wish list; nothing so material here that it would merely satisfy a passing desire, no matter how passionately that desire currently pulses through you.
What do you want to happen? What do you want that lasts? What do you want that serves? What do you want that others can build on? What do you want that might transform more than you and your own interests? What are you doing about it?
“We just knew what we wanted to do,” says Lois Bauman, a mother of six who knows what she wants. Bauman, her family and others are sacrificing their own comforts to “offer hope and give children dreams.” She’s known this for a while and built it and is rebuilding it (with your help). As a result, an abandoned building was filled with activity, many lives have been transformed, the hope of a community has been lifted, stars have been born, all because Bauman’s Stairway of the Stars was created.
Baumann just didn’t want a dance studio, she wanted to lift up a community and lift her students to the height of their potential.
