This weeks inspirational video features Clay Dyer, a professional bass fisherman who was born without any lower limbs, no arm on the left side and a partial arm on the right. His motto for life is “If I can, you can.” Watching him fish is the best 9 minutes you may spend this week.

Here’s his advice on Living The Dream –


  • Determination: Have a passion for your vision that is contagious
  • Resources: Focus on the resources available rather than what is missing
  • Effort: High goals equal high motivation equal high effort.
  • Attitude: Positive results flow from a positive attitude
  • Motivation: See your dreams through when you feel like quitting
  • Success: When you live your dream you are successful regardless of the outcome

Clay spends part of his time (when not fishing) sharing his life experiences through motivational and leadership presentations to various companies.  We salute you Clay.


8WD_web_badge-This weeks inspirational blog award goes to Kris Cahill of Psychic Everyday.

She writes –

“Psychic Everyday was founded on May 13, 2009, taking up where Art & Clairvoyance, my previous blog, left off. The idea was to have a blog focused on the ‘clairvoyance’ part of ‘Art & Clairvoyance’.  I write about the human spirit, and how that spirit can choose, grow, change, and heal. Topics include meditation, clairvoyance, being psychic, healing, forgiveness, creativity, change, love, happiness, spiritual healing, free will.

My blogging goal is to validate the spirit and experience of each person, and also the awesome power each has when deciding to heal and grow that spirit. I am enthusiastic about letting others know that they can heal themselves and create their lives, simply by deciding to do so and then doing it. Writing without judgment, and communicating simply about the beauty and joy of life, it is my goal to create an inspiring and uplifting place where all possibilities exist.”

This week Kris, 8 Women Dream salutes you for being an inspirational woman following her dream.  You inspire us!

May everyone have an inspirational week and keep on dreaming –

    Thank you Kris for letting us know about you and your blog. I forgot to add that you have the same dream as me – to speak at TED. We have to put that dream out there on the Internet here so when we see your lecture pop up on the TED site, we can say “We knew her once when…” I’ll be adding your blog to our blog roll in the next 48 hours.
