Maya Angelou once said, “A solitary fantasy can transform a million realities.”
What dream or vision do you want to turn into reality? I always wanted to go into business for myself. I could be a consultant. I’m going to go gluten free, right after I eat that last piece of chocolate cake. You know, one day I’m going to stand up to that crabby boss. I look good on paper, I should feel great. I just know there’s more.
You know it because you feel it. You lie awake at night. You talk about your dreams with your partner and your friends, but more often than not, you continue to do those same behaviors that keep you from making the change. You ask yourself, “How can I make it happen?”
Research shows, the odds against you making a change in your life — 9 to 1. 9 to 1, even if you’re facing a life-threatening illness. But let me show you how to beat those odds.
You can live the life you desire. It’s right there in front of you. But in order to achieve it, you must first see it, then believe it, and then you must graciously ask and train your brain to help you execute your vision.
