Revealing My Dream -- A Personal Development Challenge
Posted Aug 26 2008 4:16pm
My friend and fellow personal development blogger, Neil Sattin tagged me for the Reveal Your Dream Challenge . I love the idea and the most difficult thing is coming up with my #1 Dream because I have 2 I fantasize about every day so I'm breaking the rules to include my TWO DREAMS...
My first dream is to see my invention that I have been working SOOOO hard on for the last 3 years manufactured and on the shelves selling like hot cakes! I have the working prototype and am patent-pending currently thanks to a wonderful invention company; Davison . I have been told it is a WONDERFUL idea by the TOP companies in the field but am STILL at a stand still. The technology has changed significantly in the last year making my product EVEN more desirable for consumers but also requiring the need for me to change my prototype to get a real feel for what it would be like. Also the price point is high now and the product will need testing so I am asking companies to lay out upwards of $5 million to see it through to the first launch... a tall order but one I feel they would earn back 100 times over. What do I want in a manufacturer? Honesty, integrity, quality control and for them to be JUST as excited about the project as I am!
My second dream is to meet one or ALL of my 3 favorite heroes (Oprah Winfrey, Wayne Dyer and Deepak Chopra) because of the work I have done with helping people heal their pain. I REALLY want to make a difference and teach people about all the many natural methods there are for pain relief and pain management out there. Healing myself of chronic pain was my greatest accomplishment. I have helped a few people already and there is nothing more rewarding than someone saying "I feel so much better and I know now how to manage my health naturally -- thank you". Deepak Chopra's writings on the mind/body connection and his guided meditations truly helped me heal and I continue to read and learn from him. I have Wayne Dyer quotes taped in front of my desk and his words always resonate within me. I also share Dr. Dyer's book " Incredible You "with my children (it is their favorite book). It is an excellent way to teach children of the powers within to heal and deal with life. Oprah Winfrey has been my idol for so many years for numerous reasons including how real she is and how she helps others. To have the opportunity to meet one of these people that have inspired me would mean I MADE a difference for thousands of people and that is my intention. I would like to be able to say "Thank you" in person and to be looked at by them as someone who DID something to help people.
So that's the 2 -- I'm not asking TOO much am I? I can't really choose one since they are both daily dreams.... I hope and will continue to dream that someday they BOTH will come true! Thanks Neil -- it is wonderful to dream and to reveal them and share them with others somehow seems to make them more real.... GREAT Challenge!
Here are the rules according to Neil: ; )
Reveal your dream for the world to see, either on your blog (if you’re a blogger) or in the comments of a blog (like this one).
Remember, it’s a dream - so aim high! If your inner critic tells you that your dream isn’t “realistic”, tell your inner critic to take a hike. State one of your wildest dreams AS IS.
Tag some other bloggers, or friends. Don’t forget this step!
Links back to this post are appreciated, but not essential. You could just mention that you’re responding to the Reveal Your Dream challenge on NeilSattin.com.
That’s it - start manifesting
One last thing
You’re allowed to have many dreams, but you don’t have to reveal EVERYTHING for the world to see - just pick one of them for this challenge. Also, the beauty of being human and having the freedom of choice is that you can always change your mind - and by setting the wheels in motion for the dream you mention you’ll be able to make an informed choice. Reveal your dream for the world to see. It’s risky, but I promise you’ll thank me down the road. Oh, and please keep in touch - I want to hear how it all goes!
I think this is a great challenge and am tagging the following people to keep it going:
