Have you wanted to set a large goal for yourself but are afraid to even give it the time and energy to create the plan to achieve it? What can you do to make your dream a reality? I spoke to one of my former clients recently who felt their dream of starting a home for patients suffering from Alzheimer’s disease was lost due to a technicality.
Every achievement starts as an idea. That idea then becomes a theory. That theory then becomes a fact thus yielding an achievement. This process is the result of the highest form of positive thinking. My former client continued to think positively and move forward; today her dream is back on track.
For years my husband and I would take our children to Disney World. It is the one of the spring break destinations where our children were able to stretch their imagination. Walt Disney knew how to turn dreams into reality. One of my favorite places to visit is the Walt Disney exhibit. As I spent time walking through observing the evolution of his ideas and thoughts from paper to reality I grasped again how infinite are the possibilities in life. You get a sense of what’s possible!
There is a creative form of energy and it manifests itself as our imagination. When activated, it is able to build clear and vivid images. When we dream, our minds are able to expand. When building an idea, we need not concern ourselves with the “How”. First we must build the image and then the “How” will reveal itself to us. We want to keep our mind free of clutter so we can build this picture in color – be able to use our senses to bring it to reality.
As a life coach I help my clients discover and evaluate their dreams. Through individual coaching sessions I work with my clients to clarify their dreams and imagine it! One of the learning systems I have used with clients is Put Your Dream to the Test.
Now that we have the image, we have to commit to being able and willing to create this. This is where we step out of our comfort zone and move beyond the limits of our belief system. This is where doubts try to infiltrate our minds creating fear and then ultimately we give up on our dreams. Questioning how is pointless as you couldn’t possibly know how since you have never done this before so let the need to know go and continue to focus on the image.
Once the commitment is set and you are willing and able to move forward, the idea moves into the next phase of the process and turns into a goal. From here the image is moved to the subconscious mind as emotions form and attach to the idea turning it into physical form.
The idea and you begin to merge causing behaviors to change. As these changes occur you builds your awareness of the opportunities that always were there but are now visible and in line with your goal. Through faith and a belief in this idea, you have moved what was once a dream into a reality.
