'If you can dream it, you can do it".
In August, 2010, I was sitting in the training room at Jack Canfield's Breakthrough to Success live event working on goal setting. I had participated in several days of activities, exercises, meditation and processes designed to help participants break through subconscious blocks and fears that kept us from success and creating the life of our dreams.The process was arduous and playing full out was difficult, but I was committed to the process that Jack had so expertly laid out for us. And I had certainly experienced a couple of breakthroughs over the week!
Jack was asking us to level up our goal setting and write what he calls a Breakthrough Goal. Something that would quantum leap our life, our success, our purpose, our contribution to the planet. I always knew I had a book in me, and I had always enjoyed writing, but I had never written any more than journal entries, professional articles, emails and letters to friends.
Before I had time for my inner critic to convince me otherwise, I wrote my breakthrough goal in the format Jack suggested:
"I am a bestselling author by 7/1/13 at 5pm."
I had no idea what I would write. I had no idea how I would find the time in my schedule to figure it out. But, as Jack had taught me, I turned off the voice of fear and doubt, closed my eyes and visualized my life as a best selling author and practiced believing that my goal was possible for me.
Today I am sitting in my living room holding the final proof of my book in my hands. I am doing the final read through before the book goes to print. The book launch plan is in process and the launch date will be announced shortly.
The book came to me by divine inspiration through an amazing real life event that sparked me to share my story of transformation in written form. Once the process began, the words flowed to me and through me. I literally wrote it in 3 weeks. I would wake up in the middle of the night with another chapter already written. Soon it was complete. My editor found me. The cover design came through divine synchronicity. The process has certainly been a long one, but in many ways it has been effortless. Over the past few years I have connected with so many amazing people who stand ready to help me reach my breakthrough goal ...most likely by the date I set back in 2010!
This is not about me ... this is about all of us! If we can dream it, we can do it. If we believe it's possible, whatever "it" is, the Universe will conspire to help us accomplish whatever we want in life.
What do you want to accomplish in your life? What is your dream? What is your breakthrough goal? Please share it with me below. Writing it down, giving it a voice, sharing it makes it so much more powerful! It also prompts the Universe to begin conspiring on our behalf. And I must share that I am always excited to hear about people's dreams and even more excited to do whatever I can to help them come true!

The Law of Attraction Explained
Here is a simple explanation of the Law of Attraction outlined by Jack Canfield, star in the movie The Secret and author of the Chicken Soup for the Soul series and the Success Principles: How to Get from Where You Are to Where You Want to Be.
1) Decide what you want.
2) Believe you can have it. Believe you deserve it and believe it’s possible for you.
3) Close your eyes every day for several minutes, and visualize having what you already want, feeling the feelings of already having it.
4) Come out of that and focus on what you’re grateful for already, and really enjoy it.
5) Then go into your day and release it to the Universe and trust that the Universe will figure out how to manifest it.
It's really quite simple; however many of us get stuck along the way.
Perhaps we are not clear about exactly what we want. To get clear, fill in the details ... colors, sounds, qualities, characteristics. Be as clear and specific about what you want and when you want it by. Always add the phrase "or something better" just in case the Universe has something even greater than you can imagine in store. And of course, don't be afraid to think big. Think of the Universe as a huge, abundant source of possibilities. Sort of like a unlimited catalog where everything and anything is possible.
Once we get clear about what we want, many of us get stuck by not really believing that whatever it is we want is possible for us. Call it a subconscious block or a limiting belief; it doesn't really matter what terminology we use. The bottom line is that the block or belief needs to be cleared at the subconscious level in order for the Universe to fill our order. The good news is there are many tools and techniques we can use to clear blocks and reframe limiting beliefs!
The exclamation point is there because I get so excited when I am working with clients on clearing and releasing. That's where the magic starts to happen! I get especially excited when I am working with teens and young adults, helping them to clear beliefs before they get hardwired into their brain and develop into limited thinking.
The next step is visualizing, which is lots of fun and extremely powerful. I could write a book on this topic alone, but I'll leave you with this thought. Visualizing to activate the Law of Attraction is like the adult version of daydreaming ... like creating a supercharged wish list for the Universe. Have fun with the power and magic that lies within your imagination!
It goes without saying that gratitude is one of the highest vibrational states we, as human beings, can elicit. The Law of Attraction is all about creating an energetic vibration so our subconscious mind can work with the Universe to manifest it.
For the past four years, I've been working with Jack Canfield's Success Principles to fully activate the Law of Attraction in my life and I love the results The Universe continues to deliver!
Even more than the magic I've experienced in my own life, I love teaching the principles to others to help them clear blocks, breakthrough old beliefs and move on to creating the life of their dreams!
