Does the lack of evidence of your big dream have you down? It’s that time of the year when our big resolutions fade and we give up hope. Our efforts seem to be in vain as things don’t appear to be moving fast enough. Ever been there? I certainly have.
Sometimes you’re spending all of your spare time and energy on a project, but you don’t see things getting off the ground. You think “Is this ever going to happen?”
That’s when so many people just give up.
But don’t worry, today I have the most amazing person here to tell you – it’s not all in vain. She’s living proof of the power of belief and steady dedication. If you just stay the course, you might actually be closer than you think!
I am so excited about today’s post because I’m about to introduce you to one of my very dear friends, the lovely Maya Azucena.
If you don’t know her, Maya is a Grammy award-winning singer and activist, TEDxWomen performer and speaker.
She was recently featured on MTV’s MADE and travels the world making music that matters. Maya collaborated with Stephen Marley on the Grammy winning CD “Mind Control.” She’s a US cultural ambassador and performs for many cross-cultural events around the world. Maya’s performed in front of 10′s of thousands of fans at large stadiums from Eastern Europe and Asia, to Central America, and Africa. Her latest albulm ‘Cry Love’ was listed by Amazon as one of the “Top Albums You May Have Missed.”
If you’ve never experienced her live, you’re in for a real treat. She has such an ability to draw people in, to rouse audiences to their feet, uplift their spirits, and to inspire them into action. Her music is beyond powerful and she gives back in a major way. Maya shares with us some truly inspirational messages about how she was able to manifest so much in her life and how you can too.
Watch our exclusive interview below to learn more about the causes she’s a part of and her advice for creative entrepreneurs who are looking to live their dreams. You don’t want to miss it!

Maya has a new exciting video out with an amazing message. “Dance Revolution” is an original song by Maya Azucena, marking the 1-month countdown to One Billion Rising, a Global Day of Action to End Violence Against Women and Girls.
Statistics say 1 in 3 women and girls are abused or raped in their lifetime, amounting to roughly 1 Billion of the world’s population. Maya is one of those women, who endured years in a domestically violent relationship. One Billion Rising is a worldwide campaign, initiated by playwright and human rights activist Eve Ensler (author of Vagina Monologues & Founder of V-Day), to mobilize one billion women and girls by February 14th, 2013, to participate in a worldwide stand to stop Domestic Violence. Dance is the weapon of choice – a physical act of defiance.

Remember that everything in life is organic and seeds take time to root and then grow.
Trust that you are manifesting right now and you’ll be harvesting your crop and reeping the rewards of your dedicated practice sooner than you know it! Stay positive. You are creating great things.
I’d love to hear what YOU’RE working on. Tell me in the comments below the one major thing you want to manifest this year. What seeds are you currently planting?
Maya is a force of nature. How inspiring, thanks so much for this interview!
