Dare To Dream

Hey Gorgeous Dreamers!

We've all heard it said that..."what you think bring about", "you create your own destiny", "ask & you shall receive", etc. Speaking from personal experience & reading A LOT of books on this...I can tell you 100%...that it couldn't be more true! Every single big achiever was a master at visualization, and wrote down every dream they've ever dreamt. If you want a Ferrari, go to a dealer ship and not only test drive it, but sit in it, take a picture in it, feel every inch of it & believe with all of your heart that you will have it. Do this with everything you want in life, and you will be shocked beyond what will manifest! The power of not only positive thinking, but absolutely mind blowing! How many people have thought to themselves, "that person is SO lucky", "must be nice", "I wish I  lived in a house like that, or drove a car like that", etc. Well let me just tell you right here, right now...YOU ABSOLUTELY CAN!!! You really can have it all. The only difference between them & you is that they see it & they believe it. It's not even a doubt to them. They WILL have it. It's just a matter of time. EVERYTHING in life is on purpose. There really are no accidents. We are all the people we are, living the lives we lead...on purpose. EVERY decision, EVERY choice, EVERY interaction...shapes our existence. Treat people right, do the right matter what is done to you, and I PROMISE you...the universe will reward you. Now, I'm not at all saying to be a doormat & let people have their way with you no matter what...I'm just saying, "an eye for an eye makes the whole world blind" (Gandhi). Let that bad karma be on them, not you. Learn the lesson...and move on. Kindness & Goodness ALWAYS wins, even if it doesn't always seem like it at the time. But also "you really are the company you keep", so remember that too. Don't dance with the Devil & expect not to get burned. You always will. Surround yourself with goodness & love & your life will be just that. BELIEVE that you deserve it & that no matter where you've come can always change where you're going. Bloom where you are planted. NO ONE can take your dreams away from you & ONLY YOU can prevent them from coming true! Be your own best friend, not your worst enemy. You deserve it! NEVER let ANYONE tell you different. But remember, in addition to visualizing have to live it! 

Bobby & I are master visualizers & both "see" everything. We always believe that EVERYTHING is possible & that life is 200% what we create it to be. Ever since we've been together we've created Vision Boards, or as I call them Dream Boards, and let me just tell you how scary it is when all of mine started coming true! Create your board, put it somewhere where you can look at it every day, and take a few minutes to look over it & really see it. There are no rules, no instructions, nothing too big...just add whatever it is you desire, no matter how big or small. Don't be afraid. They are dreams. They're supposed to be big! A guy  in Monavie says, "dream a big dream, don't dream a small dream; the worst thing that could happen is your small dream will come true." The sky's the limit!

Here are ours...

More about & how to make one too! 


The Power of a Vision Board

By. Mind-ing for Gold

Who is that in the Mirror?

Inspired by Jack Canfield's book, The Success Principles, I decided to take a good long look in the mirror. At the time I was shocked to realize that I didn't even recognize the person looking back at me.
This simple exercise is an extremely powerful way to get back in touch with or even discover for the first time, your true Vision for Yourself.
What do you see when you take a good look at your life?
What do you want to see?
What do you want to DO, BE or HAVE within the next 2-12 months that you don't have today?
Pick the first thing that pops into your mind. Everyone wants to improve something about their current physical, mental or emotional state of being.
If we're not growing toward something then we are receding away from it. There's really no such thing as 'status quo'.

What Pumps You Up?

You can focus on just one thing or many, it's up to you. Whatever it is, make sure it makes your heart go pitter-patter just to think of it.
Write it down!
Too many people skip this step - it's critical. Write it down in the present tense, as if it's already a reality.
I love how great my new clothes look on me, now that I weigh 143!
(I like that one because it rhymes).
I am so grateful for this new position that provides me with more money, recognition and the opportunity to 'strut my stuff'!
I am ecstatic to have my credit card balance of _____, paid in full by May 15th at 5:00pm.

Get Ready to Play!

Now it's time to get really involved with your vision for yourself. It requires somedoing.
This little exercise is designed to get you visually and physically involved with your goal. If you haven't done this before, it may feel silly. You may think it's a waste of time. I promise you - it is a vital step in getting you fully connected to your vision.
And... it's fun!
Reading is Great * writing is Better * physically creating your vision is Superior!

Let's Get Physical...

Gather your favorite magazines, a pair of scissors, glue stick, and a piece of poster board. It doesn't have to be huge, even an 8 ½ x 11 piece of printer paper will be fine.
While you are thinking about the statement(s) you wrote for yourself, thumb through the magazines and rip out the pages that have images that resonate with your goal or vision.
If you used an extra $10,000/per month in your statement, look for visuals of what you will do with that extra money.
Want to pay off your kid's college tuition (or your own student loan?). Find a picture of the college from a brochure or online, put it on your vision board and write Paid in Full across it.
Buy a couple of magazines if you have to, to get the pictures you want of an exotic vacation or remodeled kitchen.
Also add some actual pictures of money - even write yourself a check for $10,000. - date it for the target date you have chosen to receive this amount by, and glue it to your board!
Some people may actually feel uncomfortable with this process; some of you will go crazy and have a blast. Although it may not appear to be relevant with regards to earning money, it is a necessary step toward training your brain to get involved with possibilityabundance and receiving.


If a picture of a Rolls Royce appeals to you - slap that photo on your board. Do not skip over it because you 'think' it's out of the realm of possibility or "who needs that anyway"?
This process will free your subconscious mind to RECEIVE the good that you desire. When we have been existing in a state of lack and limiting beliefs for so long - it takes sustained visualization and practice to create the belief of wealth and abundance.
These exercises are designed to get you emotionally involved with the good that you desire. You will begin to feel and act as if you are already in possession of the goods and freedom from debt that you are visualizing.
I have my vision board (some call it a mind-map) on the wall next to my desk. If you are shy and don't want other people looking at your board (yet) then fold it up to fit into a notebook.
Read your vision statements twice a day and take the time to gaze at your vision board. Really get involved with what you are looking at. YOU created those images for yourself.
When you feel your heart go pitter-patter at the thought of actually having, doing or giving that feeling to others - then you know you've hit the right vibration necessary to attract those things to you.

Let's Get Physical!

It is NEVER too late to start living the life you've always imagined. 
Today is the first day of the rest of your life!
Go out there & get it!

Dream it. See it. BELIEVE it! You are so worth it!
