'Dream Life: Make Your Dreams Your Reality Today' by Cherie Mitchell


Imagine listing all your dreams and goals and one by one, achieving every dream on that list. Imagine not being afraid to step out and live the life you want and deserve. Imagine your Dream Life. Is this the life you are currently living? Why not? We have but one life and our own fears and hesitations often hold us back from truly living. Do we want to tread carefully and safely through our earthly years and arrive at the end of our life time with regrets for the things we have neither achieved nor even attempted? Or do we want to believe we can do everything that we imagine or dream of and just get on and do it? If the meaning of life is to learn all you can then surely the steps towards your dreams and goals are the most important lessons you can gather around yourself? Dream life, then set out to live that life. Dream life and start today.

Read an excerpt:
What a lesson this was for the six year old me. I had been offered an opportunity that I chose not to take. This choice not to accept the opportunity was mine and mine alone. No one else had any bearing on my decision not to embark on this adventure. I had built up the whole journey in my head before even attempting it. I had imagined obstacles and unenjoyable, strenuous efforts with no reward. Instead the journey had been a real highlight for the children who had accepted the opportunity. Not one of my imagined problems had come to fruition and the other children instead had been rewarded with exciting, fun and new experiences. 
This lesson was a very big one and I learned it well and I learned it early. From this moment I would never say no to the offer of a new experience. I would not say no to an opportunity. Never again would I let my doubts – all of which proved to be completely groundless on this momentous occasion – hold me back from the joy that life could offer. 
How often do adults complete their lives without ever learning this valuable lesson? Imagined blocks, obstacles and the anticipation of much effort with no reward? How often has someone decided against taking up an opportunity because of all the things they thought might go wrong? How often have they detailed the whole process out in their heads, step by step, constructing problems at every point?

What would happen if instead of thinking of all the negative aspects of a proposition you instead accepted it as it was and dealt with each aspect as and if it arose? Why not instead of doubting just take the offer and imagine it at its very end – a happy result with wonderful memories? Why not take out all the imagined obstacles along the way and picture the successful completion? What is stopping you from doing this? Not anyone but yourself.
