Martha's Dare inspiring you to achieve your dreams

Leap towards your Dream!

I have recently been re-energized to DREAM by Mary Morrisey, the founder of Dream Builder Toolkit and inspirer extraordinaire! I saw her on Giaim TV’s Inspirations interview and was eager to find out more about her dream wisdom so I could try them and share them with you. So I signed up for her free Dream Builder Toolkit. I thought I would share some of the highlights from Mary’s coaching and encourage you to check it out!

What got me REALLY pumped up, is that we both start with the question, “What do you Love?” followed closely with “What is your dream?” While doing the Dream Builder toolkit, I took the time to write up my Love list. I encourage you to take the time to capture your love list and some elements of your dream life.

You may be thinking, thanks for the idea Martha, but why write it down? In Mary’s Dream Builder toolkit she asks, “Do you want to live a life of design or a life of default?” Whoa eh! This is why we should write it down. Study it. Reflect on it daily. Add to it when you get inspired.

Are you living elements of your dream today? Are you doing things you love? What can you do more of? A great approach Mary Morrissey encourages you to do is to explore what your dream life looks like by creating vignettes of what it looks like and feels like.

Here are some examples to get you started:
It’s a beautiful fall day and I am walking my kids to school, holding their hands, and kicking leaves as we go. We are relaxed, not rushed, talking about what we are looking forward to in our day. I love that I get to walk them to school each day – a special time to talk and just BE together. After I drop them off, I head to work, for my own company.

I am covered in dirt, and our basement is torn back to the studs and we are getting ready to put up the dry wall. I am smiling, happy to be in my renovation happy place, eager to learn how to do the next phase, and proud of myself for being a handy housewife!

Mark and I sitting somewhere warm, on a patio with a view drinking some ice tea as we talk about starting our day’s work. Our kids are out at a friends house, practicing their second language. We are living the winters in a tropical city, providing our family the opportunity to live internationally, learn new languages, and meet new friends.

The last Morrissey tidbit I’ll pass on (and encourage you to check out her toolkit), is what can you do today that takes you one step forward towards living your dream? For me it means working more with my hands (I am building kitchen shelves this weekend), writing (hence more blogs!), spending time with my daughter, and figuring out how I can have a career that allows me to be an awesome Mom and successful business woman. I want my daughter to look up to me when she is 15 years old and say, Mom you are a super star! I have made an effort three nights a week to NOT watch TV but instead DO something I love. I am committed to taking a leap towards my dream so that I can start the dominos effect that will make it all a reality.

Do you have a dream you want to make happen? What can you do today or tomorrow to move one step towards it?
