Idealize Your Gift to Others

“There are some people who live in a dream world, and there are some who face reality; and then there are those who turn one into the other.”
-- Douglas Everett

Often we hear from people who like what we offer and want to give back to others in a similar way. They want to share their wisdom and to earn a livelihood doing it. Today, more and more people are growing in consciousness and feeling the urge to serve and help others.

So they ask us: What was your process? How did you create this service?

Here are 3 big steps that may help you bring your ideals to life:

  1. Write the outline for your ideal book. Even if you have no intention of writing a book, go through the process of writing down the essence of the wisdom you have to contribute. What would you name your book? What would you cover in the 7 main chapters? You need only write the chapter titles, but if you feel inspired to go further, write a paragraph about each of them. Periodically, review your outline. Keep asking if these words best reflect your mission. You might want to gradually add content to the outline so you build the specifics of your personal service. Putting our dreams into words is a powerful way of grounding the energy and making the dream more concrete and specific.
  2. Idealize the delivery of your unique business or service. This is perhaps our greatest challenge. So often, when we think of how we would actually offer our service, we focus on the roadblocks – around money, expertise, equipment, timing, etc. Other people may also eagerly tell us why our plans won’t work. Well, we don’t have to listen to them! Focus your attention as fully as you can on your new service without roadblocks. Imagine the ideal. Imagine you have everything you need for your plans to be successful. Experience now your delight, excitement and fulfillment as your dream unfolds.
  3. Pay attention to what’s happening around you! When we can focus with happy, trusting hearts on how we can serve, life brings us opportunities! Our only task is to recognize the opportunities when they arrive, and then act on them. We need to be as open as possible, because sometimes solutions arrive in completely unexpected ways.

If we could summarize our guidance to you, it would be: focus on what you want and NOT on what you don’t want. Life truly supports us in living our dreams. In our business, for example, the Internet offers huge benefits that weren’t even conceivable only a few years back. Believe in yourself and in possibilities!

“One of the saddest lines in the world is, ‘Oh come now – be realistic.’ The best parts of this world were not fashioned by those who were realistic. They were fashioned by those who dared to look hard at their wishes and gave them horses to ride.”
-- Richard Nelson Bolles

“If I keep a green bough in my heart, then the singing bird will come.”
-- Chinese proverb
