My childhood was filled with challenges that no child should have to endure.
So in order to escape, I daydreamed.
As a young girl I dreamed about the perfect life I would have when I grew up. I dreamed romantically about the man I would marry. I pictured him as handsome, strong and successful at business. I envisioned a beautiful home in a wonderful neighborhood, 3 children and the ability to be able to stay home with my kids. That was very important to me.
My Mom was a hard working single Mother with 3 jobs. All my dreams were an exact opposite of what the reality of my life looked like at that moment and I promised myself somehow that my dream life would be my reality when I became an adult.
My Actions Started To Materialize
Today at 65 years I can still remember vividly those heartfelt dreams. I remember where I was when I dreamed them and how they felt to me as I lay on my bed looking at the ceiling. It was like watching my life unfold in my mind.
When I embarked on my real estate career 25 years later I dreamed again that I could be successful even though I had no skills or knowledge of what to do. Watching the other successful Realtors in my office made it sadly apparent to me that I had a long way to go to be a powerhouse in Real estate.
So, I began to research books and tapes on sales skills which included learning about setting goals. Goal setting as most of us know is just writing down what you want and dreaming about how you will accomplish it. But what I further discovered was that the act of writing down the goal being extremely important in and of itself was only the first step to it’s accomplishment. I needed to include action steps.
So I began doing activities that would include ways to procure appointments with Buyers and Sellers. I did open houses, cold called and networked. I continued to visualize myself sitting at the kitchen table doing a listing presentation or driving a buyer around in my car showing them homes they would love to buy.
The actions taken in my mind amazingly began to materialize in my business. I began actually physically working with Buyer and Sellers and selling homes. You must picture these actions in your mind as if you already have them. The feelings around them must be deeply rooted in emotion and love. This is the only way these goals can manifest outwardly.
Once I realized the real power of this practice, it changed my life and because my career as a successful realtor had already been created in my thought world it became easy to wake up knowing what my day would be like. I can only share with you my experiences and tell you that unbeknownst to me I was really goal setting as young teenager unaware of the power of dreaming but hoping, praying and wanting it to be so.
God and the universe will always give you what you ask for and dream about the most. If you will just apply this daydreaming principal with a deep heartfelt love for what it is you want, it must happen. It is the law of attraction and it is your subconscious mind at work.
The mind is designed to give you what you ask for whether it be good for you or not good for you because these are the things you ask for. They are your creations. Your thoughts are actually the things you create for your life. Any heartfelt and deeply loved thought will materialize physically if you think about it long and hard enough.
Pay attention to your daily thoughts and actions.
Are they PIPE DREAMS (smoky wanna-be’s that have no substance, a wish list and no real depth of feeling) or are they deep emotional desires that you have?
The “must haves” are the ones that you will manifest into reality and continue to further your desires for a better life.
WHAT YOU THINK YOU BECOME
BY THE WAY, I did meet the man of my dreams, married him and watched all the wonderful teenage daydreams become a reality.
