    7 steps to making your dreams come true

    7 steps to making your dreams come true

    Our dreams -- those inner desires that reflect our true passions and have the potential to bring us incredible joy -- are as mixed as the dreamers themselves. Yours may be to travel to Kenya, earn an MBA or simply get your driver's licence. "A dream doesn't have to be big; it doesn't have to be important to everybody," "It just has to be something that resonates with you, that's consistent with your values and that gives you hope and pleasure."

    No matter what the scope of your dream is, or what stage you're at in terms of your life or fulfilling your heart's desire, these steps will help your dreams come true.

    1. Name it
    To get in touch with your dreams, sit down by yourself with no distractions so you can hear your own thoughts. Try to open up and be honest about what you feel. Expand your world to include all kinds of possibilities and let your spirit soar, says Ellen Goldhar, a life coach based in Toronto.

    Then at the beginning of each training season, she writes down a dream, such as winning a medal. During this process, put the idea of fantasy behind you, advise Rosenswig and coauthor Laurie Gottlieb, because our dreams are only unreal until we articulate them, label them, validate them and make plans to implement them. So, whether you want to scale Mount Everest someday, launch a valuable community group or lead a campaign for a cause you hold dear, get a journal and jot it down.

    2. See it
    Now that you've identified your dream Goldhar suggests you sharpen your vision using an exercise she calls Vision 10: if whatever you want were to be a 10-out-of-10 experience, what would it look like? Picture it in your mind's eye.

    3. Feel it
    Once you can see your dream, it's time to feel it. "You've got to feel it to be it," says Goldhar. In What Would You Do If You Had No Fear? (Publishers Group Canada, 2004), Diane Conway writes that she knows how she would feel in her dream home -- once she finds it.

    "I realized I'd like to have bright colours, so I painted my existing gate and front door purple. This makes me so happy, and it's a way of achieving some of my dream until it manifests." If your dream is to run a quaint bed-and-breakfast, is it possible to open the door of your current home to guests to get a feel for preparing gourmet breakfasts and offering directions to nearby attractions?

    4. Want it
    In their book, Gottlieb and Rosenswig suggest you ask yourself the following questions to evaluate whether a particular dream is the one you want to be pursuing.
    • Am I animated when I talk about my dream?
    • Am I working hard at my dream?
    • Even though I feel stress, is the dream worth pursuing?
    • Can I see myself inside the dream?
    • Does my dream make me smile?
    If you answer yes to most of these, then you are on the right track.

    5. Imagine it
    "You want to get so good at visualizing that you feel like you've experienced your dream before it even comes to life," says Goldhar, who suggests taking 10 minutes before going to sleep each night to visualize and anchor your dream into your subconscious. "Visualizing exactly what living your dream would look like can be a tool that produces unfailing results," adds Conway.

    6. Face it
    "We all have fears that we have to break through to begin living our dreams," says Conway. Our biggest fears -- regret and time passing -- are actually the biggest incentives to realizing our dreams, says Rosenswig. That said, you need to manage your fears. First, recognize them. For instance, do you worry that realizing your dream may be too hard or take too long? Second, only share your dream with supporters. "At the beginning dreams are delicate because of our own insecurities and self-doubt. You want to nurture the dream and get it to a place where it's healthy," says Goldhar.

    7. Let it happen
    Check in with your dream every so often. If it begins to feel like a burden, Goldhar says you're no longer dreaming. Perhaps your dream is to start an interior decorating business, but after a little research you realize it's going to take 80 hours a week and that prospect is less than desirable. You may modify your dream and decide you want to work as a designer for someone in the field instead. As Clara says, don't put limits on your dreams. "I'm always moving forward. No matter how difficult it is at the time I always know that I am moving toward something special."

    Dream big
    So your dream is to walk on the moon, or maybe your Oscar acceptance speech is already written. Deanna Rosenswig, coauthor of Dreams Have No Expiry Date (Random House Canada, 2005), says that it's fine to have a larger-than-life dream as long as not fulfilling it doesn't make you unhappy. "There are dreams that are more in your reach than others, but that's the whole point of dreaming; it's unlimited," says Ellen Goldhar, a life coach.
