Welcome to Part II Growing and Dreaming in my Make Your Dream Come True This Summer Series!

In the last video, I shared with you some tips on how to get started making a dream come true when you are truly at the very beginning, looking at a blank slate. If you haven’t watched that video yet, go back and watch that one first here.

Take a moment and picture a dream you have for your life, a deep desire you would like to see as a truth in your life right now—it could be very concrete and specific (a career goal or finding love) or very subtle (feeling happier or having a problem resolved).

How would you feel if you had exactly what you want right now?

Today I want to share with you *2 Key Insights* for taking the very first baby steps toward your dream. This is still very much about being at the beginning, figuring out exactly what you want, and bringing all your best resources together.

The first key insight is the number one thing you must do and have to make your dream a reality. The second key insight provides the solution to not having the first figured out yet. :)

  4. Clarity and knowing what you want is so important and yet often one of the things that people find really hard to pinpoint too ….Great video – Thank you

  5. Hello Christina,
    I couldn’t agree more with you on the fact that we have to be clear on what we want first. It was difficult for me to get clarity when I first started looking at what people were doing online. It was only 2 years ago but it feel like it’s been much longer. I think that because I was not not clear on my purpose and what I truly dreamed about doing in my life, I listened to too many voices. I’m glad I continued to focus on personal development. It’s the key! Always work on you!

    • Hi Nathalie,

      I can totally relate–my process for discovering my purpose has been about two years in the making as well (for my on line version at least)! At first my vision was so unclear, and I felt really anxious just thinking about it. The key for me was slowly taking one step at a time and taking action, even when I didn’t have the clarity I wanted and needed. I am now getting more clear every day, so it really does work to take action and focus on yourself even when you don’t know what it’s going to look like yet. I’m not sure we ever get to a point where it’s “definite” either, since we’re all always changing. I totally agree–working on yourself is key!


  6. I’ve heard this called the “deathbed insight” – think about when you are approaching the end of your life and someone asks you: “What’s the one thing you wish you had done, but didn’t?” Though this seems like a bit of a gruesome visualization, it might provide insight as to what your life purpose should be.

    What do you think?

    • Hi Kim,

      I think that is absolutely helpful and heard that is exactly the way Steve Jobs lived his life. It definitely helps me to think that way, to remember that I really have nothing to lose, because in the face of death, everything seems smaller. I definitely want to look back on my life and know that I took risks and did everything I wanted to do! :)
