“Time to Believe” – Michelle Greco

Singer – Time to Believe, Michelle Greco

What a great, inspirational idea for a song and one that fits nicely within our LiFE is NOW… concept.  There is no better time than NOW and if you want to accomplish something you must believe.  You must believe in whatever helps make your dreams come true, makes you take that next step toward your goals; and you must believe NOW.  Yesterday was too late and tomorrow is never guaranteed.

The lyrics are wonderful and the story behind the singer just as good (who by the way is currently waiting to see if her performance of this song will be used on an upcoming TV show – how cool is that!?).  She’s 12!  Yes, 12.  I know it doesn’t sound like it but she is.  She’s a 12 year old girl from Wall Township, NJ (she’s a Jersey Girl)  who for as long as I can remember has been performing and singing for anyone who will listen and even for those who aren’t.  She has recently progressed to the piano and has continued to learn for the last four years.  Not only is she a great little singer and performer, she is also a straight A student and she’s won local signing competitions and is a semi-finalist in the Big Jersey Joe Talent Competition.  She is also a supporter of LiFE is NOW… and vice versa!

Listen to the song.  Take note of the lyrics.  Share the music.  Download it to your mp3 player. Get the word out about Michelle Greco this talented 12 year old, and help send her on a dream.

Time to Believe

As noted above the song Time To Believe was a professional recording of an original song and Michelle is waiting to hear from a TV producer whether or not they want to use her song for their show.

What makes this story even better is this is a family affair.  This little 12 year old has honed her craft through the loving teachings of her mother who happens to be a professional classical singer who has had the unique privilege of working with some of the best singers and coaches from the Metropolitan Opera.  For over 20 years she has been performing professionally and for the last 10 has also been teaching both vocal and piano lessons.  You may have heard of one of her recent students who was on the 2011 X-Factor where she was a top 9 finalist in the country/pop group, “Lakoda Rayne”.

We hope to hear more from her most recent pupil, her daughter and we will say…

LiFE is NOW… it’s “Time to Believe”


Pipe Dreams

Pipe dreams.   Every time I hear this phrase it strikes a negative chord with me; I guess since most people use it in such a condescending manner to make a point that the dream is not achievable. “By whose determination?”, I would

The dictionary  defines pipe dreams as such:

noun pipe dreams, plural

  1. An unattainable or fanciful hope or scheme
  2. any fantastic notion, hope, or story:

I find #2 above to be the Optimistic definition while #1 revels in Negativity.   Worlds were discovered, families created, medical breakthroughs and inventions brought to life by “any fantastic notion, hope or story”.  I guess it all boils down to relative perspective” again.  How do you choose to look at the world?   Both definitions define the words but clearly they can be interpreted in different ways.   So, I challenge you to do the same and add a #3 to the definition above.

3.  Possible reality or opportunity

People scoff at the dream and attach the word ‘pipe’ in order to ensure their opinion is clearly stated; they do not believe (maybe in themselves) the idea has merit.  You’ll hear them scoffing; “Sure, he has ideas, but they’re nothing but pipe dreams.”  Come on people!  They’re dreams.  They’re ideas.  Nothing new is created;  nothing old is changed;  the status quo remains in tact without dreams.  You cannot make something happen without an idea, a thought, or a dream.  So regardless if the naysayers call your idea  a pipe dream, prove them wrong.  Make your dream a reality. They keep you moving forward.

Dreams keep you alive.
