Wishful Thinking

Hoping this day finds your dreams visualized, your mind clear and your path drawn out. 
We all have dreams. I am talking about the kind of dreams that we envision acting upon some day. You know, that "some day" when we win the lottery, or when life slows down, or after the kids go to college. Have you ever written those dreams down, or even put pictures of your dreams on the refrigerator or your computer to help channel your energy toward it?
Life runs at a speed we can keep up with (for the most part), however, there are times that the speed of life passes us by and we are merely observers of other people's dreams - in some respects, our dreams are being lived out by other people. Are we just as capable and deserving? Absolutely! So, how to we get there . . . how do we live out those dreams?
Step one -
Write them down. Clearly write and articulate your dream as though you are living it right now! What does it look like? What does it feel like? How are you experiencing it and who are you experiencing it with? The more detail you can provide, the more real it feels and becomes.
Step two -
Put a plan in place. How much does it cost? How long will it take you to save/put aside funds? Are there any special advisers you need to enlist to be part of your Dream Team?
Step three -
Select a Dream Advisor. The purpose of this individual is to hold you accountable for not only mapping out your dream, but taking the necessary steps to make your dream a reality. There are many out there who are Dream Advisers or Counselors whose sole purpose is to help you make your dream a reality. It's that simple. 
If it's so simple, why do we make it so hard?  Fear. Fear of failing. Fear of disappointment. Fear of rejection by others who think our dreams are silly.
So I ask you - what is your dream?  To become an entrepreneur? To run a marathon? To take a trip to another country? What ever it is, you are capable. You are deserving. Life is about living, so why not live your dreams? It is waiting for you. Go get it!  I believe in YOU!
