Hey everyone! Hope your New Year has started off great. I am so excited to get started on this 2016 Success series! The past few days I have given the subject a lot of thought. There are so many directions to go and so many other blogs and videos on success out there. So, I just want to do something different, something new and something that is useful and helpful to my readers. I will guide you to some other very good sources of inspiration that I have found.
“Let’s start at the very beginning, a very good place to start” . . . . I believe that the Word of God, the Bible is the number one motivational book out there. All wisdom, all good, all success comes from the Author of that Book. After all, it is God who is in control and blesses us with gifts of speaking, writing, inspiring others.
“The mind of man can plan his way, but God directs his steps.” Proverbs 16:9
Now you know my focus and some of my values. Keep that in mind throughout this series, as I believe faith is the foundation for any success plan. You do not have to share my beliefs to be successful. I do recognize that everyone has different belief systems.
So . . . . . let’s just dream today.
Dream big, have a RI – DIC – U – LOUS dream!
You have to envision your dream – really see yourself in your dream. Don’t limit yourself. If you limit your dream you limit what you can achieve. This is where a dream board can be useful. Most dream boards are a work in progress. Every time you have a new thing you think about you can pin it on your dream board. Now is the perfect time to start pinning pictures of your dreams for the year. When you dream use positive terms – such as “The home I am purchasing this year.” Be descriptive and detailed: see yourself in that home, walking through the hallways, spending time with family in the kitchen, etc. Go car shopping and take a selfie of you sitting in your dream car. Post in on your dream board!
See yourself in your dream! Believe!
I have taken this graphic from a series on dreaming big by Monique McLean. This is an excellent source for learning to dream big. I highly recommend it. You can check it out here: Monique McLean
There you have it! Your success will only be as big as your dream. Go crazy! Really let go and let yourself dream this week. Get started on a dream board.
Next Up: setting goals.
Oh, I can hear you guys grumbling and sighing. No, not goals. Oh yeah – goals. It can be fun once you have had some time to dream. Hope this motivates you today! Please, comment and let me know what you think, and share with anyone you think needs a little dreamin’ . . . . deb
