Use your imagination and think outside of the box are terms we have all heard at one time or another. I have friends who can do this easily. Ideas come pouring forth faster than I can keep up with; while others have a harder time. I am learning that the more I close my eyes and just imagine something; the more chance I have of making that dream become a reality.
As I work on building my coaching practice, someone asked me today what a perfect day would look like. I've imagined it so many times that it was easy to describe. It will take a lot of hard work to reach my ultimate goal; but the feeling I get as I picture it is that it will happen. It is funny because as I share my idea with others I see the look of disbelief on their faces. But as I share my enthusiasm and dream, they become excited as well. I surround myself with people who believe in my dreams, just as I believe in theirs.
Sharing my dream, sharing what I want to create, sharing my vision, and sharing my enthusiasm helps to create the support I need to continue to imagine and then to create. If you've stopped using your imagination or have stopped dreaming, maybe today is the day to begin again. Close your eyes. What do you see? What do you feel? Where are you? What are you doing? Take a few minutes to paint a picture or create a collage of what you imagined. Get out your journal and record your experience. Keep your picture or your collage where you can see it. Read and reread your journal entry to remind yourself of what you want to create. And then begin. Take the first step. Dreams do come true when we first imagine what we want and then take the steps to create it.
When you share your dreams and your talent with the world, magic happens. Let the magic begin!
I have worked with many women who live very busy lives and have often forgotten about their dreams. It is never too late to begin to dream again. It is never too late to take that first step towards making your dreams come true. If working with a coach is something you have thought about, contact me today? Let's use our imaginations to begin to turn your dreams into reality. firstname.lastname@example.org
