Dream It, Believe It, Achieve it

Success is an elusive animal for many of us. For others it is a daily achievement. Whichever side of this fence you live on we all must admit that true success requires specific mindset and purposeful action. How do you implement these two and integrate them to enable you to live your dream life? The answer is both easy and challenging.

The first thing you must do is to embrace your dream. Without a goal or dream you have no purpose. It is like taking a trip without looking at a map and planning your route. I am sure you would agree that when you want to take a trip somewhere you’ve never been before this is really not a wise decision.

Most likely you would not only want to know the best route to take but also what to see and do once you got there. Toward this end you wouldn’t just pick up a map and go for it. More likely, you would want to talk to someone who had knowledge of your destination. Perhaps you would even go to the library or bookstore and get books on the city. At the very least, you would want to go to your local travel guide and ask for any information they might have that would help you find your way. If you happened to be a member of AAA you would get a detailed ‘trip tick’ (route map) that included the road hazards along the way. Armed with this information these hazards could easily be avoided or at the very least not take you by surprise.

The same goes for your dream. Once you have a clear idea of what you want in life find someone who has already achieved it and follow their advice, if they are willing to mentor you, so much the better. Having gone his road before you they will be better able to assist you in getting past the hazards that your will encounter along the way.

The next thing you need to do is adjust your attitude. Believe that you can achieve your dream. Learn to live each day with a positive mindset. Begin to instill in your mind the unquenchable desire of your heart.

One way to do this is to post affirmations in places where you will see them often throughout your day. You might create a dream board, or even just put a miniature reminder in your pocket or purse that you will stumble across each time your hand goes into it. Don’t know what a dream board is? It is a collage of pictures of what it will be like when you are actually living your dream. A very good friend of mine takes this a step further. As a life and business coach, Kim Emerson of the University of Prosperity and Prosperity Mindset (, has been creating what she calls Reality Boxes for her clients for a number of years. With great care and planning, she puts together her clients dream, places the pieces of the dream within a treasure type box and sends them off for the client to assemble. It is a unique way of capturing the very heart of the vision that her clients express. Eula DeMasi says of her Reality Box, “What an amazing and grounding experience! This reality box really helped me to re- focus my attention and get a handle on my life.”

Another example I like to use is a new car. Since many of us get so much joy from this one it is easy for many to relate. Let’s say you want a new car, don’t just say, “I want a new car,” decide on the make, model and even the color. Then go and find one and sit in it. Go so far as to have a friend take a picture of you sitting in it. While you are sitting there in it, close your eyes. Sit there and experience, really experience, the moment. Focus; smell how it smells, feel how it feels. Run your hands over the seats, the steering wheel. Picture in your mind actually driving the car, not just around the streets but all the way into your driveway or garage. In this way you will begin believing in your very soul that you can, or better yet, that you have already achieved your dream. Accept no naysayers! Claim it as a reality for you.

If you find it difficult to do this have a friend help you. Another life coach and author of Bertha Size Your Life!, Jane Carroll (, recently reminded me that if you swap dreams with a friend and have them write a vision of you in the future tense living your dream they will often see you more successful than you will allow yourself to become.

For an example, I personally swapped stories with my partner in Jane’s class and while my dream is to live in Switzerland, I placed myself in a chalet while my partner had me living in a castle. Give it a try. Not only is this fun but you might even begin to feel your dream grow bigger. Jane puts it this way, “We’ve trained ourselves not to get our hopes up for fear we may be let down. It’s so much easier to hold the vision for someone else because we don’t view it through the same filters.”

Once you have set your sights on the prize, mapped out your path and accept the responsibility for your own success, if you continually work at making your dream a reality you will achieve it.
