My family will tell you I have always been a dreamer since an early age.
Being born and growing up in poverty in Ukraine dreaming was the only luxury available to me.
I used to imagine what it would be like to walk down the streets of New York and Los Angeles.
I saw different scenes in Hollywood movies that would ignite my imagination.
It felt real in my mind when I pictured myself enjoy the diversity of famous American cities.
Feeling is the key. Thoughts are quite powerful. But if you don’t mix your thoughts with feelings, the effect is not as strong.
“Feeling” my dream life in America was bringing me joy.
It was making me happy.
Nowhere would I bother about the how.
If I did, I would start worrying and fretting.
Bear in mind, it was an impossible dream for me to come to America.
Flying to Mars was more feasible to our family, who didn’t have 2 pennies .
Well, maybe not really. But you understand my point.
When I came to the USA realising my big and impossible dream, it was just the stepping stone to building my life on my own.
Building life on my own in a foreign country was tough.
I remember, I kept my vision board in my closet. I didn’t want to elicit any scepticism from my roommate.
I was working hard and many times was questioning my capabilities.
There were many times, when I wasn’t satisfied with my life, my relationships. my finances.
I wanted to be able to do what I loved and be paid for it. I was a waitress.
I wanted to drive a better car. My first car was an old Jetta with 125 000 miles on it.
I wanted to live in a big and beautiful house. I lived in a tiny apartment.
I wanted to go to exotic places on holidays. I wasn’t making enough money to be able to
All those wishes and desires were placed on my vision board.
Yet, again, I wasn’t questioning how.
It would imagine what it would feel like to be able to enjoy those things.
The visual reminder in my closet would reinforce those feelings each time I would walk in it.
This is not “woo-woo” practice. This is the law of the universe.
What you can see clearly in your mind, and what you can feel strongly in your heart, you can have it in your physical reality.
This stuff does truly work.
Now, I do what I love and get paid exceptionally well for it.
I drive my dream car ( the one actually from my vision board, just in a different colour)
I live in a beautiful 6 bedroom house in the English countryside. Plus, my husband and I have another amazing house in Costa Rica.
We travel to the most amazing travel destinations for work and pleasure.
My point is, you hold the key to create the life of your dreams.
Use your intellectual faculty of visualisation.
It works, if you are willing to work at it.
So, I challenge you to sit down and give yourself a luxury of dreaming.
Literally. What would your life look like if you could have anything?
How much money would there be in your bank account?
( it is not about money, but it is right up there with the oxygen)
Where would you like to live?
What countries would you like to see?
What car would you like to drive?
What would you like to do in terms of your work?
What difference would it make in your life and in the lives of others?
Begin to feel it to the smallest details.
Don’t worry about the “how”.
Don’t look at the gap between where you are and where you wish to be. The gap doesn’t stimulate positive emotions.
Do your absolute best where you are.
Cultivate gratitude for your countless blessings ( I don’t care where you are, you have so much to be thankful for)
I am aware, I am sharing timeless truths. Yet, so many people are miserable because they don’t practice it.
It is easy to fall in the “I know it all” trap.
First of all, if you know all this, why are you not living it?
Second, you can hear the same idea million times but each time perceive it in a different way.
And third, which is the most important point, if you know it all, are applying it to life?
On a consistent basis?
Without looking at the calendar ask wondering where all your “stuff” is, since you’ve been visualising it for 2 weeks?
It doesn’t take extra time.
Just do it.
You will see the results for yourself.
