Perfect 10 Lifestyle Dashama's Blog
"It is more important to know where you are going than to get there quickly."
-- Mabel Newcomber
Over 10 years ago I had a mentor who introduced me to the concept of 'having a mission statement for my life'. This came at a perfect time for me, since at that time, I was really wondering which direction to go and what was the purpose of my life.
Since then, I have re-evaluated my mission statement many times and even after all these years, mine is still ringing true and inspiring me to continue doing what I do.
In preparation for our Journey of a Lifetime to Bali this June, we are all beginning our adventure at home by reading some of the profound wisdom of my favorite masters.
Although this list is not every book that I would recommend you read, this will get you started and keep you busy for a while for sure :)

(Dashama and Dr Wayne Dyer, Santa Monica, CA 2010)
I'd heard of many of Dr. Dyer's books and programs (The Power of Intention has sold over 200 million copies world wide -for example), but I had never had the opportunity to hear him speak. So when I heard he was coming to Santa Monica, I decided I needed to be there and that was all that I knew.
He started out talking about his children, the obvious pride and joy of his life. And he shared many stories about his own path as well.
The most touching story he shared was about the time he went to look for his father's grave stone in his 30s. It had been over 20 years since he was abandoned as a 9 year old boy. He heard an Inner Calling to go see this grave stone to see if his father had acknowledged he had a son named Wayne, a mystery that had plagued him his entire life.
