Be careful what you water your dreams with. Water them with worry and fear and you will produce weeds that choke the life from your dream. Water them with optimism and solutions and you will cultivate success. Always be on the lookout for ways to turn a problem into an opportunity for success. Always be on the lookout for ways to nurture your dream.    - Lao Tzu  

  1. Be very clear about what you want. We’re all familiar with the expression, “Be careful what you ask for!” If you want to realize a dream or goal, think about what you want and why you want it. Get granular with the details. Make sure you know what you are asking for!
  2. Put your wish out there! Ask the universe for it! You don’t have to shout it from the rooftops, but be connected to what you want to bring about. Say it to yourself or even outloud.  Share it with those close to you!
  3. Take steps to make it happen. Be a conscious creator.  If you want a new job, envision the kind of job you want and then scour the job sites and send out resumes to the jobs that that catch your eye. Don’t wait for the perfect job, but actively start your job seeking process… you will get the ball rolling and make contacts and learn about the job market along the way.
  4. Have faith and trust in your process. If you know what you want, begin taking those steps to make it happen… and keep going until it does. It may happen in 1 day, 1 week or 3 months. Stay focused and resolute. Some days you may feel more energetic than others, but stay true to your course and keep your radar sharp.
  5. Be on the lookout for what comes your way! Acknowledge what is being sent to you along the way. Sometimes things come to us in unusual packaging. Don’t think that Mr. Right is 6’1” and is just going to walk through that door. Let go of preconceived notions. Stay open and resolute to what you want and it will come!
  6. Keep positive. Working toward a goal or dream should get energized and make you happy. Keep your thoughts clear and your spirit strong. That will attract the things you love and that are good for you.
  7. Clear all resistance. Don’t let negative thoughts cloud your mind. If and when you come up against obstacles, think of them as challenges, not closed doors. How can you get past them? Should you go over, under, around or through? It is easy to give up… but if something is truly important to you, you will find a way! Just give yourself time. If you really want it, it's worth it!
