"Knowledge is Power"

As you master the art and science of dream creation, personal growth, and professional development, surround yourself with 'Positive Possibility Thinkers' and consider the following basic principles:

  1. 'My Dream is 'A Possible Future' - My Future in embryo, a potentiality.
  2. Dream Creation, Personal Growth and Development takes time.
  3. Practice patience with others and especially yourself throughout the Dream Creation Process!
  4. Be prepared to be surprised with the unexpected and the possibility of receiving something better than what you planned for!
  5. Most importantly, "you can always change your mind" about what it is you initially identified as what you wanted.
    Course Corrections are encouraged and even preferred. They are considered to be a sign of personal strength, insight, and maturity in the exercise of one's freedom to choose. In other words, learn to be flexible.

Remember: "If you always do, what you've always done, You'll always get what you've always got!"
A foolish person, then, could be described as an individual who is expecting a different result, when continually doing the same thing.

A wise person, then, is the individual who applies what he/she has learned and now understands to get the desired result she/he wants.
Wolfgang Goethe reflected, "There is a big difference between knowing and doing."

KNOWING is based upon measurable, observable, objective, and repeatable experience.
A simple formula to remember is: When these conditions arise, the following results (conditions) ensue.
They are linked together. 'You can't have one without the other."
Simply put, at its most basic level, it is the application of the principle of 'cause and effect', 'sowing and reaping', nothing more, nothing less.

Ideas beget dreams!

"The Foundations to Successful Dream Creation"

  1. I am the DREAMER.
  2. I am the DREAM.
  3. I am the Dream Activator, Dream Supporter or the Dream Stealer.
  4. I am the recepient of the DREAM, the benefactor of the DREAM.
  5. I am the creator, sustainer, preserver, and manifestor of the DREAM.
  6. I alone am responsible and accountable for the DREAM.

...and as the DREAM, I Dare to Realize Everything About Me!
REMEMBERING that the Dream is "About ME" and the decisions and choices I make.
TODAY, I honestly acknowledge the degree to which I AM at HOME in "MY" DREAM!

Ideas beget dreams!

"T'win (Two Win) at Successful Dream Creation"

Every human endeavour consists of two winning (T'winning) components. They are 'Being' and 'Doing'.
The more these two overlap and the more they align, the more likely the dream will come true.
The greater the overlap, the greater the likelihood of dream creation. A decrease in overlap, the less likelihood of the dream coming to be.

  1. Being requires me to "Be-in' the DREAM".
    • the level of my internal investment in the dream [my emotional, psychological (thoughts about), and volitional (willingness) commitment]
    • The expression of one's character, virtues, and strengths (patience, creativity, courage, diligence, humility, etc.).
    • The mastery of one's less desirable traits (envy, anger, impatience, greed, etc.).
  2. Doing requires me to "Do-in' the DREAM".
    • Doing requires a level of commitment to formulating and working my 'Dream Action Plan'
    • The deployment of physical resources (energy, effort, time, financial)
Remember: Be (WHO) and Do (HOW) share the same genetic code. Their DNA is made up of the same three letters. They have the same parents. They really are t'wins (two wins) sharing the same basic elements. Let them work together for you!

TODAY, I COMMIT to BEING at HOME in MY DREAM.
(as much as it is possible for me, today)
"I AM at HOME in MY DREAM"!


Consider the following quotation by Wolfgang Goethe

"Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back—

Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth that ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too.

All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred.

A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one's favor all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamed would have come his way.

Whatever you can do, or dream you can do, begin it.

Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. Begin it now."


NOW is the Time to ACT on YOUR DREAM!

NOW is the time to "Dream the Impossible Dream",
that is,
NOW is the time to "Dream the I AM Possible Dream"!

and COUNT YOURSELF AMONG THOSE that
"DARE to DREAM"! and "TAKE STEPS to Make Their DREAMS COME TRUE"!

You can choose to sit on the sideline of your life and timidly ask,"Why?"
or
You can be engaged in your life and declare excitedly, "Why Not!"

"There are those that look at things the way they are, and ask why?
I dream of things that never were, and ask why not."

Senator Robert Kennedy

  • 2. Affirm Your Life's Dream in Thought, Word and Deed!

    "We all do affirmations each and every day of our lives, whether positive or negative. Their powerful influence and results can be found written into the fabric of our daily lived experiences. They are expressed in our thoughts, words, and deeds, what we think, what we say, and what we do (what we commit to and what we omit from our life)."

    An Overview of Affirmations

    • To affirm is to assert strongly and state as a fact.
    • The one who affirms, confirms, ratifies, supports, strengthens, and upholds is doing an affirmation.
    • Affirmations can be either positive or negative in nature.
    • Those who take a positive and affirming approach to living, choose language, and all manner of actions, that are largely positive, uplifting, encourging, and supportive of oneself and others. The opposite is largely true for those who take a negative approach to affirmations and life.
    • Affirm your dream each-and-everyday. Write and say your affirmation daily, but remember to be clear, concise, focused, and deliberate in the words you choose.

    A Closing Inspirational Thought
    From 'A Return To Love' (1992) by Marianne Williamson

    "...Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
    Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
    It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us.
    We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?
    Actually, who are you not to be?
    You are a child of God.
    Your playing small doesn't serve the world.
    There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you.
    We are all meant to shine, as children do.
    We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us;
    it's in everyone.
    And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
    As we're liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."
