Good Riddance!!! So glad you're gone!!!

Watch this video now:

 

I have a provocative thought for you—sometimes what you let go of is as powerful as what you go after. So what used to be in your life that is no longer there that actually fills you with gratitude? What are you thankful for getting rid of? What did you learn from letting go?
Please share your thoughts and let's move on together…and Happy Holidays to you and yours...Marcia

  1. I have been exploring for a bit for any high-quality articles or weblog posts on this kind of space . Exploring in Yahoo I at last stumbled upon this web site. Studying this info So i’m satisfied to express that I’ve a very excellent uncanny feeling I discovered just what I needed. I most indubitably will make certain to don?t omit this website and give it a glance on a continuing basis.
  2. If you are contemplating what you want to do when you leave school or further education a great piece of advice is to do something that you are passionate about. You are going to be working a long time and you are now in a position of power. By laying down some carefully planned foundations now, you will be able to start out your working life, doing a job that inspires you and is interesting to you. Fashion is an interesting subject to choose for many reasons. One of the advantages of taking up a career in fashion is that there are so many branches to the subject and different roads you can choose to go down. ^ Most recent content on our personal internet site <"'http://www.caramoan.co/caramoan-tour-package/

    Hi Marcia…. Thanks for a great weekend!!!! ….I was able to catch a few sessions …I am looking forward to replays. I have a friend in Vancouver who does tv and Reality Shiows….have you thought about starting it in Canada??? Watching over the week end with your laser coaching…really convinced me that this type of reality show would actually have a great contribution to make to society….might need to clearly define the specific type of people and dreams…or maybe coach a want to be business person, a health dream, a foundation dream …… Cheers…you can email me or phone. Thanks again for an inspiring week-end.
  4. I enjoyed your video and the “fresh” new you! As time has passed since I attended the Masters of Manifestation workshop with you in New Hampshire, I have come to understand more and more how my past was blocking certain things in my life. Going throught the process of letting go of conscious and subcounscious blocks has definately opened my heart and mind, making room for many more dreams to take hold. I am at such a content place in my home life and am once again more than ready to pursue a creative endeavor which will hopefully be financially successful! What are some steps I can take to push myself further out of my comfort zone to pursue my “next” dream? Thank you!
  5. As a newly retired person, I’m struggling to find meaning and a purpose in my life at this stage. Although I’m involved in a number of activities and have many close friends that I see on a regular basis, it still feels like something is missing. How can I make my life feel worthwhile again?

    Marcia, I just watched your video. Actually, I just clicked on your site for the first time.(So there is a confession!) I am very impressed with what you shared; I know that what you said was absolutely true. The phrase “manage your mind” is so succinct yet so powerful. Thank you for sharing your gifts. I plan to “tune in” frequently.
  7. Thank you Marcia. I so appreciate your honesty. You have given me comfort to know that success always requires faith. Even the great and accomplished Marcia struggles. WoW! No matter how many mountains climbed, the next mountain of success still requires faith.
  8. just finished listening and found a saying, “Because you are alive, everything is possible” thank you for your inspiring words at a time i really needed them:) Virginia
  9. To Marcia Hi Marcia…! You look fabulous with your new haircut…! And moving to the place of your dreams I imagine has certainly helped as well for you looking so great….You bounced back beautifully. Good for you…!! Since you invited us to leave a question and promised to make a video addressing our most pressing questions about our dreams, I will take you up on that offer and will do so. So here goes: You were crystal clear on your vision of building Dream University and you did it, then you discovered that you were not so happy living in Santa Monica (it was far and a bit chilly for your taste as I recall) and were clear on what you preferred and moved to a place which you now truly love and enjoy. But what to do when one is NOT clear on their dreams or purpose in life…? I know that I too would like to move to a warmer place (I am currently living in Buenos Aires, Argentina which may seem amazing and it is……as long as you’re a tourist….! But once you get inserted in the ways of life here, it can be quite harsh. I moved here 3 years ago because my husband had a dream job “opportunity” and I thought I was gonna take the town by storm and Buenos Aires was gonna be my oyster and we were going to be able to do all the things we were unable to do in Caracas, Venezuela (such as to be able to save and travel) and sadly and only left (which I am still grieving about BTW), because of the political, social and financial situation there, only to find that this country is headed in the same exact direction as Venezuela…! That is: hyper-inflation, delinquency, difficulty finding work, and when you do it is poorly paid, etc, etc. and we put all our bets on this and sold everything we owned which took us YEARS to obtain and had given us a more or less comfortable lifestyle, and now we find ourselves making ends meet just to pay the bills. I can’t seem to find work other than as an English teacher which does not thrill me terribly (lots of work involved to prepare classes for only a handful of students and low pay), My husband’s so called “golden job opportunity” has not been such either as everything that was promised was a lie and for many reasons also drags his feet to work. We barely have a desk which only fits the computer, so we have really worsened our situation. We have some savings, but do not touch them because as we are both exhausted from the corporate world, and would like to start up a small business of some sort. Also, we find ourselves living like an old married couple although we are only 46, but we just watch TV because anything that involves going out, costs money, and we’re always anxious about money, commuting is…..hell….so we arrive home late, and quite frankly life just seems at times home-work-home-work……The city is HUGE and it’s too urban for what we’d like which is a bit in between, AND to top it all with a nice cherry, the weather (which like you is quite important for us as well as), is freezing, overcast and rainy for the most part of the year and has real consequences on our moods. Having said that: what to do when you have NO CLUE as to what your dream is….? We thought this would be for the better, and has not. True: we are thankful we have food on the…well…. no tables, but food to eat even if on cardboard boxes, and a roof over our heads, but how does one move in the direction they want to, when one has no idea…? So, HOW to go about it is where we are completely stuck…! If there’s anything we’ve learned by moving here is that we would love to live in a warmer climate and DEFINITELY near the beach….! But where to go…? I can think of many places we’d LOVE, but how to reach those destinations and how to start…? We’ve subscribed to a caretaker magazine to find places where maybe we can take care of the house and do a few choirs here and there while getting established, but many seek for a full-time maid and handyman, and we want to dream BIG…! Because of selling ourselves so short, we’ve found ourselves later dragging our feet….! (I was for many years a secretary, and my husband would sell himself as an architect just to please the client) Also, I kind of have an idea about what I like and am really passionate about, but unfortunately maybe it’s not the most “spiritual” thing, but darn it I love clothes and I like fashion….and I don’t want to apologize for it……!! I’ve already apologized enough throughout life and am always feeling guilty….besides, if there’s any help to humankind I could see in it, well, maybe it’s to bring out the goddess in women and make us feel even MORE beautiful than we ALREADY are…..! Is this valid…? I once worked for a women’s shelter and would help the ladies choose what to wear for the interviews that could help free themselves from their abusing husbands or partners, and trust me they were ecstatic…..!! To see themselves so pretty, so dressed up and so…changed in a way they couldn’t describe……so clothes CAN make you feel a bit more prettier or empowered or whatever……In any case, you made your dreams possible because you were clear and also maybe you had enough saved up to make Dream University a reality, or move to wherever you wanted, but what could you share with someone like me who dreams of changing the place where she lives and start a small shop with some savings….? Even though it’s not the most “spiritual” of paths, does that mean it’s not my purpose in life…? And how would I know if it is or isn’t…? I feel it is because of how much I liked assessing women while working at the women’s shelter and also when I worked at a boutique shop a while back, and the ladies were always grateful for my insights and help, and I felt great in return…! Is this a dream too insignificant and not spiritual enough…? Because this is as close as I can get to where my heart really is. If not, then I don’t have a clue and am completely lost…. In fact, even if it’s ok for that to be my dream, I have done so much research to find a place around the world that would “accept us” (citizenship, working papers, etc) and that attracts tourism, etc yet have come up empty handed. Also, we have no clue as to how on earth even start a business. Many “new thought” leaders say to get into contact with people you know who have started up a business and pick their brain, but we know no one….Everyone we know is as broke as we are and has a “steady” job they hate…..you’re the only person I can turn to……!! What to do…? How does one take clear action, when you’re not even clear…? S.O.S.. Help…! I TRULLY hope to hear from you Marcia….ANY insights you could share would be GREATLY appreciated…..!!! Warmest regards, Maria Alejandra P.S. (Oh, and my husband’s dream, as long as he is by the beach and he feels I’m happy, he would as well, besides, he’s an architect and together would LOVE to design the space…In fact, after remodeling other people’s homes, offices, etc, to build our own shop, would be a dream come true for him as well…!)
  10. Yes! This work has impacted me. Wheee! Thank you. I was lucky enough to have attended the San Francisco Dream University in July. While there, I really got clear that I want to focus a part of my attention/work on something truly important to me, something I call “celebrating in the dark.” What this means is finding the kindness, compassion, and even joy in places that are difficult in life. There’s lots of stuff brewing, but one really transformative thing that happened is on my birthday the idea dropped in to offer 48 acts of kindness to 48 people in 48 hours. I asked in my blog for folks to tell me about anyone they knew who needed a little extra kindness. Well– it was so humbling and amazing to read the requests. So many people grieving or out of work or disappointed. I let life guide me in choosing what kindess to offer. I sent books. I left audio messages with poems. I sent itunes certificates or Dalai Lama chants. Each kindness I sent filled me with gratitude and joy. And each person who wrote to me to connect afterward felt like a dear friend. And even though the connection was based in some difficulty, it truly felt like a celebration of being human and sharing a moment, even in the dark. There was something about that July event that caused me to finally put a stake in the ground and choose to focus on celebrating in the dark. Thank you so much for the inspiration.

    Hello, Marcia! I developed an interpersonal communication business with my partner who passed in 2008. I am still so passionate about this business & have big ideas I want to do to expand it – but know that I would love to have a soulmate to come join me in this endeavor. Do you think that is asking too much of Universe to manifest an intimate partner who would be as passionate about my business dream as I am?
  13. Hi Marcia, I found you a month ago in internet and I must say it has been one of the most important things that have happened to me lately. I don’t even remember what I was doing that day, but to find you was like a miracle to me, it gave me this big hope on life and world to find that somewhere in the world there was somebody strong enough and brave enough to create a university for dreamers!! You make this world a lot better than it was without you. And even though I’m far away from your university (I live in Chile), just the fact that I can visit your web page and receive your emails provides a light of hope to my life and encourage me to go further and do something to built my dreams. In spite of this, I’m still having problems on believe in myself. I’m in a dangerous path as you comment a few days ago because somehow it seems to be more important to me what other people would think about me than what I think about myself. I’m stuck here been so afraid of to be seen….. like I was some kind of dangerous light or something…. is hard for me to explain it. Even to write this words is hard for me, it took me a week to finally find the strength to say out loud what I think. I’m well aware that I’ve been blessed with this special ability to see beyond what eyes can see, and quite a punch of gifts like that, but I’m so afraid to show myself. I want to write a book (or more) to deliver to the world what I’ve learned in my life, and I also want to be a coach and help people to grow and find happiness and love in life. But this point: where I already have the knowledge and I have to take it out, it’s been the worst part of the road, I really need help and it would be great if you could give some advice to help me. Thanks in advance, Vero

    Dear Marcia, It’s been very hard to win money from the work I do. I receive money from other sources, but not my work.
  15. I’m really looking forward to your video series. I feel like I know you and You are an important part of my life. I recently lost my daughter and her two children – not to death, but to the same thing that has taken almost every family relationship I have ever known – personality disorder. I am reading professional level books on the subject and dreaming I can write something for those who suffer like I have. I feel bogged down, but the reading is helping me grieve and my energy is slowly returning. With friends like you, I won’t give up my dream. Thanks, Marcia!
  16. Hi Marcia, I really connected with your video. I loved that it was simple yet profound, and also made such sense! Thank you. I work as a Life Coach and Hypnotherapist and I am in the process of building my business. My dream is twofold: I want my work to act as a catalyst in many, many people’s lives to get them unstuck and support them as they achieve their dreams, and I want to be a great role model and provider for my teenage children. I found your example of switching to look at my life through the lens of ‘what belief would support me’ to be very powerful. And on challenging days even getting in touch with that ‘inkling’ and making choices from there is so hopeful, energizing and empowering. The next step for me I think is to make that dream truly take shape and tangible so I can feel it at every level. Thanks for your insights and I look forward to reading your blog and watching your videos :)

    Hello Marica, Welcome back!!! We have missed you!!! I have achieving one of my dreams to loose weight. I have lost 12.5 pounds and have more energy then ever. I don’t feel as lazy and unmotivated. Funny how loosing a few pounds can make you do that. The system I found has been so amazing, that I decided to be a promotor!!! It is work that is fun!!! That has always been a dream of mine to do something that is actually fun that doesn’t seem like a job. My new dream is to open a small in home preschool. My passion is art projects so I expect I will be doing alot of that. I have targeted a certain age grioup 3-5, set my hours, made a website. Now I am starting to pass out fliers. Got to fill my classes. My question Marcia, is how do you get the people in your house to support your dream and not always be thinking the negative? Also, how can I stay motivated and on track until my classes fill?
  18. Will you address methods to identify dreams beneath the layers of work, home, relationships, and the consistent barrage of needs of other people that I face each day? It seems that I am so busy that I can’t see the vision.
  19. Marcia, Well, my biggest life dream has been achieved, as a direct result of knowing you and being part of one of the early Dream University coach trainings you did. As I went through the Dream Coaching workbook to learn how to be a Dream Coach for others, I wrote out my dream in vivid detail of how my life would look when I was a full-time professional coaching, working for myself and playing by my OWN rules. I still have that workbook eight years later…and it makes me smile every time I read the vision I created on that page because my life looks EXACTLY the way I described it! Thank you for being such a stand for our dreams and thank you especially for being instrumental in helping me create my Dream-Come-True LIFE! I love you!

    If I truly believe that I can transform my life from where I am at today (addicted to food and alcohol and chaotic relationships) and I want to help others on their way out of hell, should I video where I am now so that others can see me walk through the process? My plan is to coach others once I get through this. I would like to make my career in helping others so that they don’t have to struggle like I have. On the outside, I look like I have it together. On the inside, I am a wreck. My dream is to be an inspiration to others by healing what has been an addiction for 30 years.
  21. Thank you for the inspiration and uplifting spirit. Continue to spread your gift that God has given to you. Blessings!

    Thank you so much for this video! Your message could not have come at a more perfect time for me. Any more words or stories you could share to help me continue to strengthen my mind and faith that anything is possible would help me so much! I took your Successful Dreamer course through the Shift Network this summer and it inspired me to finally put my foot down and say no more to some relationships and ways of living that were not working for me. It also inspired me to start working one-on-one with someone who could further support me in saying no more to what was no longer working for me, and help me heal myself. Thank you so much for inspiring me to finally take these steps and for offering your continued support through these videos. You are my inspiration!
  23. I want to loose weight and join an exercise place my mom offered to pay for weight watchers I am not confident I can succeed I do need to change and believe in myself and that I can do it, friends have offered to help. I get crabby and angry about being more responsible and accountable but need to put in the effort and trust and confidence and believe I can succeed !

    I was talking to a friend yesterday and she said she doesn’t have dreams. I was surprised and shocked because I am a dreamer. Thanks to you, Marcia I realized that dreaming is good. It’s not a bad thing to wish for success or business contacts or beautiful things. It’s what everyone should strive for…Even if dreams are for security and happiness. Everyone should dream because it becomes your life’s map to where you want to go. You taught me that!

    Hi Marcia, Thank you for this. I feel as though I have made many of my dreams come true, and now I seem to be at a place where I need to spend some dreaming about new dreams. What ideas do you have to help cultivate dreams? Thank you
  29. Hi Marcia, First I have to say that You look Great! Much younger than you did in your last videos and much, much younger than you did when I first saw you on Oprah years ago. Keep the hairstlye as it suits you. I remember it as if it were yesterday. I was working overseas in hospitality and one day saw you on Oprah. I could not take my eyes off the television. Work stopped. There I was standing in front of the tv nodding, nodding saying ‘That’s true! That’s true! This is great stuff. We need this at home.’ I had to keep moving but I also had to find another television. With each one was a long stop staring and nodding repeating the same refrain. It became my mantra from then on. That day I decided that I was going to become the first certified Dream Coach in Barbados and the Caribbean and become part of the dream movement to enrich lives, spread hope and light up the world one person at a time. It was not to be as the baton was snatched from me. (There’s a story there). Nevertheless I kept in touch via your newsletter and have been inspired by it for years. A series of life crises and financial setbacks stalled my plans but I was determined to get the training. I applied for a scholarship on your online course not long ago but was unsuccessful. I was very disappointed. I am not daunted though . My intention is set. So my question is this:How can I work with you and Dream University to change the world? Someone’s world. Help someone to live in their light and be brilliant.

    Marcia, It does my heart such good to see your little face and hear that your dreams are still evolving and ‘in development’, as it were. I am 48 and I have yet to make many of my dreams realities. I am taking action, micro-movements perhaps, but action nonetheless. You give me hope, Sister! Much love and BIGASSWENDYHUGS

    Hi Marcia! Wanted to write to you after viewing your last video-it touched my heart, however, I’m busy taking action…preparing to move so I can be closer to ChIME, The Chaplaincy Institute of Maine. I’m in the 2nd year of a 2-3 year program that contemplates the profound relevance of the interconnection with all life-EVERYTHING becomes Divinely Sacred. Ordination to be an interfaith minister is the choice of most after 2 yrs., yet a 3rd is sometimes necessary…it may be for me-this is a real journey! Take care,Carol

    Hi. Marcia. Great video. Learning to let go, believe, take action while living is a great difficulty for me. How does one get over that obstacle?

    Hi Marcia, Thank you for sending this to me, and sharing your insights with us. It has been a while since I heard from you, but this is an encouraging message, to help us keep going. Having someone care, and encourage you to continue, is that ray of hope.. Thank you.
  34. Marcia: I found you at the Shift network earlier this year. Short background – over the space of two months in 2011 I lost my job (manager of consulting office which used to be my company), lost my dog, lost my wife and lost my hard drive. Joined your merry band and started out developing my dream for my future (I’m 75). Then my daughters evil twin showed up, moved into my house with her kids (I love them) and basicly forced me to find another place to live. I am in a great place to do the work BUT my head is has been taken over by the evil one and I can’t concentrate. I know that greif is playing a big part in this but right now I don’t have time for grief. How do I break through this barrier and get reinspired to develop my dream? How do I reduce several dreams to one? (or should I?) Just a few thoughts on a rainy afternoon in New England.
  35. Thank you for being here for us and helping our dreams come true. I am a healer who left my job last year to get clear and then work full time as a healer. I have a website, am on social networks, am doing a blog and started a radio show. I would like to make money while doing this. Any suggestions?
  36. Thank you for your honesty. I don’t find too many people who are so “up front” as you. Are you using Isagenix products? Judy in Albuquerque
  37. My question is this: How do you know when it’s time to give up on that dream and let it go, that it’s taken its course as far as it’s going to take you, because specific people, who’s choices and decisions are necessary in making the dream happen, don’t want to or can’t see the same vision?

    Last week I decide to create a six figure income for myself which would afford me to do the things I desire. It was there all the time but the change was in me when I decided and verbalized it and began envisioning and acting on the inspirations that come. So Dream On Dream Big and know that the universe will support you!

    Your video is helping me not to convince myself that the business I just signed up for is a wrong move. I don’t know if you are connected with this business or not – my feeling is that it must be. And if it is I can picture that this new endeavor is the right choice and it will work out exceeding my dreams of being able to get to where I want to be and be able to know that everything out there is not a scam……………..Thank You!
  41. What do you do when you feel that you know that you are DONE in one part of your life (like selling my retreat center) and ready to move on (bought a downsized lot in another state) but the center will not sell.(It has been for sale for 2 and half years and no offers, dropped price in half etc.)
  42. I heard you speak at the Isagenix event a year ago. I was so inspired by your approach to tending to the skill set AND mind set required to make dreams come true. I continue, every day, to make progress in making my dreams a reality. I’m totally excited for you to be “with us” again, and to have my actions be fine-tuned and fueled by hearing from you!
  43. What are the 5 best books to read on life coaching, how to do it, what questions to ask, etc?
  44. Marcia: Your work has helped me take action to contact people asking them to meet with me to talk about my creative projects. I am learning to release my expectation of outcome and to rest in knowing that I am planting seeds that will manifest beyond what I can imagine. Thank you…

    Marcia: Since I took your Dream course, you have helped me in helping others. As a yoga teacher, it is my constant mantra/aspiration…to be helpful. Your words come through me as I notice others are stuck in their “doubter”, as I encourage them to relax into their “dream” pose. My dream is to have a waiting list of private clients and I need to find ways to let that dream wing its way to more people. I find your advice very helpful and wind up talking to people everywhere about what I do. My referral base is growing but my dream is even faster than my business growth. What suggestions would you have to change desire into action?
  47. Marcia, Thanks so much for this message that we always have a choice on our beliefs. As one of your Dream Coach University graduates, I had gotten away from coaching and had forgotten. I am now facing the most difficult challenge of my life. My aging 88 yr old parents, who’s health is significant deteriorating and who are also suffering from various forms of dementia. To top it all off, they have been living on nothing but Social Security for many yrs and have no savings at all, no real estate, nothing. And they are fighting my efforts to help them adjust to assisted living and their deteriorating health. This is the biggest challenge I have EVER faced. How do I keep my spirits up, stay positive and keep going?

  48. Hi Marcia, I need to refocus on my business I recently started a full-time position however my long term goal is to be self sufficient with my direct selling business which is with FAC. I know I can achieve however at the moment my energy is depleted. Listening to you now I remembered when I first saw you at our UCW seminar and how empowered I was after that day as we all felt you were talking directly to each of us. Thankyou Marcia I will Dream, Believe, Achieve. I need to block out the negativity!!
  49. In the past, I started (what I felt) a successful venture. However, I decided to leave that venture and move onto something else. Now I’m struggling because what worked in the past isn’t working now. How do I shift my thoughts to move forward on the new venture verses continuing to think about what happened in the past and not feeling that my new venture is going to be as successful? This video came at a great time for me….Thank you! I’m just starting with Dream University even though I signed up a while ago. I look forward to being a part of this great community.
  50. Hi Marcia, Yes I was derailed too this year when my both dogs died of cancer. I’m slowly getting help to move forward with my dream of making a TV series here in Adelaide, South Australia, but sometimes fear that I’ll never be able to do this as I really don’t know how to find the money. I guess I can save a little money and get everyone to be a part of the first episode for free, but I really hate asking actors and crew to work for free or for deferred payment. This may however be the only way in the future to get started. I have written five one hour episodes so far (I had to become my own producer since so my writing has been delayed whilst I’m learning the role of Producer). I learnt from one of Jack Canfield’s books about dreaming big, but I’m wondering if my dream is much too big? Good luck with your TV series, I’m sure from listening to you that you will succeed, and you deserve to.

  51. Hello Marcia! Thanks to many of the things I learned from you, I have never been happier and I LOVE MY WORK! In January 2011, I was taking the very first step toward my dream of coaching managers in the large financial institution where I’m employed. I also had ideas for how to help employees find more joy and fulfillment in their jobs. i took the Dream Coach Training as well as three of your other seminars during 2011. Your training, and you, helped me believe in, and create, a MUCH bigger version of myself than I believed was possible. 18 months later I’ve done individual and group coaching for managers and have made a significant impact on the culture in our Department. Tomorrow, I meet with the CEO to enroll him in expanding my project. Best of all, I’ve helped many of our employees find more enjoyment in their work and make significant contributions. I’ve actually helped people create ways to love their jobs without having to leave them. Thanks for all you help and your transformational seminars. Linda
  52.

    Several years ago you spoke to our state organization in Bowie, Maryland. Since that time I have taken a leadership position as an International Officer in the Society to which that organization belongs. I am planning a conference for 22 states and provinces in the Northeast. We exect 600-800 women educators to attend. The international theme is Sharing Our Vision – Strengthening Our Society. Our Vision statement is Leading Women Educators Impacting Education Worldwide. Your presentation to our state organization energized many of those in attendance. Do you have a recommendation for a speaker for the leadership conference we will be hosting in July, if you are not available? We cannot pay a high fee but we can give space to sell and sign books. I wish you success in you “development”.
  54. Hello Marcia – You came to mind this morning. Literally – I was asking God/Universe to guide me (as I do every morning) and as clear as a bell your name and image came to me. I said “OK” but nor sure what it meant as I have been following you for quite a while. My question is – what do I do with this intuitive response? Perhaps your videos will have the answer. I have been at my passion for years and to no real financial success – but have personal success and helped others along way…. When does one say “I give up?” even when it just doesn’t seem right – (even a move out of state) to say “Uncle?”
    • Oh wow! Same here. That is my exact situation and my exact question. I feel like I should keep going, because I honestly have no idea what else I’d do (I’ve been systematically working on it for two years now) and don’t want anything else, but it just seems so pointless now because my financial situation has gotten so desperate. Lately, I feel like I’ve just been throwing things at the wall to see what, if anything, will stick just trying to make some money or move forward in some way. Needless to say, it’s not working. :P

    How do you turn Dreams into Dollars when you are tired down with how much you can do? I have had a year setback on my dream with serious illness and the people who were supportive before I got so sick are now a little negative regarding where I go from here. I need some Positivity in my life to encourage me to keep going as I still have a few months before I can step up to the plate and get back into working through my dream. It is great to have you back Marcia!
  56. Hello, Marcia :) I don’t remember how I found out about the Million dreams campaign, but I did and since then I start watching your videos and listening to you. I’ve listened to the teleseminar with Stephen Dinan from The Shift Network that you did on the May 19 and it inspired me. I think, as I already wrote you, that you are a good person and I’d like to add that you give me the feeling that I can trust you and you are so true and genuine that I really got attached to you and I am always glad to receive news from you and see you :) Good luck for your TV show!!!! xoxo Yevheniya
  57. Hi Marcia, I am just starting a new business and would love some suggestions on how to stay focused and positive during the earlier stages of the business launch. This is not my first venture but will be my best. I have recently had some set backs in my personal life….ie divorce and my core beliefs have been shaken a bit. Any advise would be most appreciated.
  58. HI Marcia, So Happy to hear from you again! I just want to say Thank You! Thank You for your insights. They always come at the right time and they validate that I am taking he right steps to making my dreams come true. Gwen
  59. Good morning Marcia, I was glad to see an email from you in my inbox and was looking forward to hear what you had to say. I have been apart of a few of your virtual classes and I always find the content inspiring. I don’t have a question for you at this time however I am looking forward to your new class. I am going through a similar time as you shared on this video, where my health is being compromised. I will get to where I want to be and will depend on my virtual community to help me get there. Thanks for being apart of my dream team! Warmly, Christine.

    You look great and your work has always inspired me, to hold on to my dreams.Last video comments helped me to discover ‘modernmayandaykeepers.com’.Instantly felt i must look it up and after 15days,when i found time,I scrolled thro the comments to locate their details. Thanks for connecting me to such wonderful souls, like you.
  61. Hi Marcia, I did indeed see your “I cried video” and was moved by your transparency. I could really relate to experiencing the momentum of my choices of believing in myself and my dream (retiring from my current career) this year and yet finding myself by Sept. slipping back into a funk of what’s not possible. Managing the mind is a daily practice and struggle – I look forward to attending MOM and being in your presence again! I am still hopeful for fulfilling my dream – I recognize now, there are steps in that process that need re-enforcing. Here’s something you said in this video – living with the integrity of my choices. It resonated with me – can you expand on this? I believe in the dream process you’ve brilliantly designed and am ready for the next level! Thank you with love and appreciation, Melanie Fitzpatrick : )
  62. I have a dream I have been working on. To make the world of assisted living a beautiful experience. We have developed a business plan that needs to be funded to come to reality. So far along the way, every hurdle has been better on the other side than what we found. If I can share along the way, I know my dream will come to reality, because it is a win/win for every one.
  63. Hi Marcia, We met at a Tony Robbins seminar many, many years ago. It was a DWD and you encouraged me around a table at one of the tented meal times to follow my dream. This I have done and the Living It Yoga concept that was born all those years ago is now in its infancy… Living IT Yoga is a combination of my commitment to yoga and my love of Italy and the Italian approach to living well. Thank you… or should I say Grazie mille, con affetto Eileen p.s. my first action to making the dream a reality was to attend a conversational Italian class and the gifts that have come from this class just keeping on flowing…
  64. I had been at a low point in my life and career. Marcia’s video just seemed to pop up in my in box just at the right moment to get me thinking, and dreaming, again. I am now back on track and excited and interested in where my career will lead. I very much appreciated that she has made so much of her thinking and guidance available for free. She really is ‘walking the talk’ by being so generous, and trusting that the universe will find a way for her to be paid back. I wish her the very best of responsesat and great success. Question: Ok – so I am daring to dream again – and that is a huge change that sometimes makes me feel great – but how do I cope with the nagging inner voices that say ‘this is all a load of hooey!’ ‘You’re just kidding yourself’ … rose-coloured spectacles…. etc. etc.
  65. Dear Marcia, Great to see you back living your life powerfully with passion, joy and purpose. You continue to inspire and empower me to throw my hat over the fence and take a leap of faith into my dream life. Since our last Dream Coach course, “Powerful Communicator Intensive”, I am making powerful requests in my work with college women leaders because of the insights and awareness I gained from you (The Master of Enrollment). Instead of being in complaints and thwarted expectations, I learned to quiet my critic and stand in my power with clear intention and integrity, which you role model so extraordinarily. Looking forward to miraculous insights and lots of synergistic action with my fellow dreamers at your “Master of Manifestation” workshop in Santa Barbara. See you this.December. In gratitude and love, Joyful Judi – ‘Vivacious Visionary”.

    Justa comment – I liked your insight. It’s amazing how easy it is for one to realise that one is not bound by one’s current perspective – that it can be changed in the flash of an eye. Literally and metaphorically! My question is If there is an easier way of finding clients apart from word of mouth and trying to drive traffic to my website. I am not discouraged as I am only in my second year of setting up my business and know that things take time. I look forward to your response Much love, PArgash
  67. Hi Marcia, You have definitely inspired me to make some life changes. I used to be afraid to stand up for myself, prefering to not rock the boat. NO LONGER! I am now prepared to take risks and no longer scared of failure. I am filled with inspiration, love, respect and gratiude for my life. Everything around me is changing. People are going out of their way to be nice to me and I feel I can now pursue old dreams that I was thinking of giving up on. I like the way you sincerely express your thoughts and tell us about your life experiences. I feel that I already know you and think you are a very caring person. May the Sun always shine for you, Charlotte
  68. Marcia, I attended your San Francisco workshop in July of this year. I got so inspired by your work that I took the Dream Coach workbook you gave us and used the processes in it to manifest a dream! I love to write, am passionate about personal growth work and believe that playful, light energy actually helps us grow with ease instead of effort. I took all of those passions and launched a website that’s all about playful personal growth: http://www.campconsciousness.net Once I put my intention and action in alignment, the resources I needed to launch this just kept showing up. It was awesome! Thank you so much for the work that you do! It makes such a difference to us dreamers out here. Warmly, Shannon
  69. I am going to take action to better market my business. I have recently written my marketing text/content, and I am going to invest in having a professional graphic designer format, layout, and “make beautiful” my message of what I can offer. I am currently in the process of compiling a list of marketing outlets and opportunities for these soon-to-be-revised marketing pieces.
  70. Hi Marcia, How to I reignite my passion to write? I have sever (Yes! 7 wonderful ideas) that are work-in-a-skeeching-halt mode. . .a novel, a screenplay, a reality show, a sit-com, a one-woman play, short stories and a blog. Today, I did work on the blog. However, I use to be so passionate or should I say, I start out passionately writing each new idea and it quickly fizzles out! My desire and action are not married to completing each project. In my heart of hearts, I know that they all are doable and worthy to be viable income-producing tangible pieces. Why am I stuck, stagnate. . .okay, I’ll use the “P” word . . procrastinating? My lifetime dream is to be a successful writer! Appreciatively, Marquita

    Marcia, I’ve been feeling stuck for sometime now and I know that there’s something better for me. I can almost feel that October is the month for a new job and a new place to live. The thing that I’ve noticed is thinking about it or feeling it just isn’t enough. You have to follow it up with action. So, absolutely, visualization is key, but next is developing an action plan to pursue that dream. Thanks for the encouragement. K
  72. In March, I was riding on a sweltering bus in Costa Rica, reading John Kehoe’s QUantum Warrior. There was a part about how laser beams are created…he said there are light beams dancing all around us, each with it’s own unique frequency…when only 1/10th of 1% of the light comes into a similar frequency…coherence occurs and all of the light beams turn into a laser beam. If this science is applied to the planet…if 1/10th of 1% of 7 billion humans come into a similar frequency, coherence could occur. What if it only took 7 million people resonating at the same frequency at the same time to shift the planet? That’s only 1 person out of 1000. I thought this can be done! This could be done in simple ways, with people smiling and greeting one another, hugging, acknowledgment, gratitude or just simply looking people in the eye as you pass them on the street…human interaction. What if on the 21st of each month, there is a global party…all of the people committed to creating this shift spend the day smiling…at every person they come in contact with…going out of their way to connect with a smile. Then those smiles ripple and more people join the global party until there are 7 million+ people on this day all consciously interacting with fellow humans, sharing love…and coherence occurs…the hundredth monkey…and things will never be exactly the same again. And all along the way, we all benefit, connecting with humans, loving one another…making a difference in small ways every day and big ways some days ;-) So…I started…I have the domain http://www.howyoulove.com. Now it’s September almost October and I have been 100% stuck in the lack of execution. I feel so passionate and so excited about this and I cannot get myself to move. HELP!!!

  74. My dream is to be bigger than myself. I’ve practiced holistic medicine solo since 2003 but I can’t reach all the people who want and need this approach. So I’m developing ways to increase access. I’ve trained an advanced practice nurse, but I haven’t had space for her to see patients–until now. After over a year of trying, the fourth office space I pursued has worked out. We move in 10/5! It has a classroom, a demonstration kitchen and more space for patients and practitioners! The whole experience of trying to find an office space taught me that I don’t have to go down the road of anger and frustration when things don’t work out. Instead, I breathe in AND out, and look for the opportunity in the situation. When space number 3 fell through due to a misunderstanding between the landlord and the leasing agent, I just breathed and asked about the space across the hall. It wasn’t my first choice because it needed to be built from scratch and would cost around $65000 by my estimate. The landlord turned around and offered to build it out for me and gave me 6 months free rent! It also took far longer to develop the program for the nurse, train her and trial it on patients. It was okay because we didn’t have the space for her yet. We just took it as a signal from the universe that the time wasn’t right and we kept working. The result if far better than where we started! I just started listening to the Shift Network’s Successful Dreamer course just this weekend. I see from the first class that I have difficulty recruiting and welcoming new resources warmly and seeking out ideas and opinions of others. It’s a trust issue. How can improve in this area?

    HI Marcia, I did drop back into my space where I flounder, so it’s good to have you back. I have finished a memoir about my breast cancer. It’s called The Magic to Continue Living: My Breast Journal. I have sent query letters looking for an agent, no luck so far. Recently I came in contact with an editor in New York who sounds fantastic. However, her fee is way out of my budget. So now I’m back to hemming and hawing over what move to make next. I do need editor who can find holes in my manuscript and help me take it to the next level but I want someone who can really help and not someone who can fix a few errors. I get stymied because I don’t know which step to take. When talking with the New York editor, she says that agents want a manuscript that is ready for publication. Yet authors I have spoken with claim that agents will help improve a manuscript if they see something worthwhile in it. I am doing the jet thing and just circling the airport. I can’t seem to come in for a landing! So I think my direct question is, what’s my problem? What do I do next? How to I land this jet? Thanks if you get to this and even if you don’t, it always helps to write because I can now do some sorting through of my thoughts and help myself move forward. I think! Missy
  76. Seems like there are more and more people who are on the brink of breakthrus for change and moving forward to the next level! Thanks for being a facilitator!

    Marcia You are so inspiring to watch and listen to, I am sending you thanks and blessings for sharing these wonderful ideas with everyone.
  78. Hi Marcia! Good to see/hear you again with your words of encouragement! One of the things I do is do too much. I get overwhelmed with it all and want to throw it all in. When I get to that point I take a step back, go back to yoga class, breathe and tend to myself. It’s a work/life balance issue that at least I am aware of. Perhaps some insight as to how to balance life a little better please. Thank you in advance, Catherine
  79. Hi Marcia, I unfortunately missed your workshop in San Francisco in July…. : ( what do you suggest for people who dont know what their dreams are… The closest that i get are …. that i would like to someday own a home or be married… but then i return to the fact that i am underemployed and undecided in career. i dont have a dream career… feel like work is work and just that…

  81. hi Marcia, Great to hear you reflecting on your life and stimulate us to keep on dreaming and take action. the universe is a living dream and so are you and so are we. Bless you and keep on being a leader
  82. You’re messages are very inspirational, Marcia. Your honesty and self-revelation are so refreshing! Since taking your on-line course and attending your July workshop in San Francisco, I’ve dusted off a dream that’s been hibernating for 20 years. Thanks to you, I’m not retired — I’m re-wired! My question is: can a low-tech person realize a dream that’s in the high-tech realm without ‘doing’ Facebook or having a website or even a smartphone?

    Hi Marcia: My question is what can we do when we find ourselves at what feels like a whirlpool of confusion? – a kind of crisis point in our life – where the dream is built on being pragmatic beliefs rather than love and passion?
  85. Hi Marcia! I just about died when I thought you were becoming discouraged about your dreams! Gosh darnit, I want you to focus on YOUR OWN DREAMS for a while. Let me be there for you somehow? I bought your book almost two years ago and it’s time for me to set some new goals because all of my dreams have come true. Thanks in part to meeting you. (I wish I could meet you in person some day.) When I bought your book I had broken my ankle, was unable to walk, or to work, or to recieve unemployment or any kind of help from anywhere. On top of that the doctors said I wasn’t going to heal and needed to do two operations to me. Since then girlfriend I refused their operations. I started a new business http://www.etsy.com/shop/EnchantedGround by crawling down the stairs to my sewing machine. I kept my house and car. I first walked with a walker, then cane, then limp, then no limp. Now I can dance in high heels. I also was able to quit smoking cigarettes and drinking alcohol, for a year now, both very difficult and life changing. You got me started. But then I needed to lift the limitation of not dreaming about anything. I wanted to dream about winning the lottery. I needed to believe ANYTHING was possible. When you truly believe you don’t have ANY LIMITS on believing. I found the key. The true key to recieving everything is by feeling happy. I learned this from Esther (Abraham) Hicks. Have you heard of her? If not, please look into it. Even if there was one thing that helped YOU and it’s time for YOU to look out for YOURSELF :) I think the things that have happened to me have been pretty miraculous. I’d love you to join me :) I love you, We all need you, I’m here for you :) Write anytime. Melissa
  86. I just have a small comment and a question. Due to an illness I could not make the dream university last year . I was told I could get into the next session and would be notified about the course as I did not ask for a refund at all, just a chance to take it later. No more communication was ever passed on to me. Needless to say I am disappointed as I would have expected more from you, by listening to you speak in Dallas
  87. Your video was right on the spot for me….I achieved one of my greatest dreams, a handpainted glass company, within the last few years and things were going well until the perfect storm of the economy hit. With the help of my wonderful partners and mentors we shifted gears into the Sports Market and reinvented ourselves. It has been a slow hard road (as we all know there are very few “overnight” successes…life is not a reality show) and we are still not out of the woods but it has shown me that I need to hold true to my dream ..i look forward to your videos

    My major problem is that I have never known what i really want. I am a 58 year old woman, happily married, no kids. I have never had a goal or ambition. I still do not know what I want from life or what I am here for, I have basically drifted all my life, Is it too late ? What can I do to make my life more meaningful?
  90. DREAMS! Big ones. Growing, planting seeds, tilling the crop. My question: How do I get to the harvest? For seventeen years I have managed my solo-career in the early education world as a consultant, company of one. I have written material. Published it. Garnered pockets of regional support and fan clubs sprinkled about. How do I go to the next level? I know my material is good and deserves wider use + application. How do I harness the social networking/cyber connections to grow a bigger spotlight, make a larger impact, inspire more change on behalf of children — harvest? How do I get to the harvest? I’m in the lap where I’m thinking legacy. I want to leave my mark. Tangibly.

This is my dream for her to discover herself before I leave this earth.Thank you and welcome back.

    Hi Marcia.. I am right at step zero. So.. question: How do you get clear about your passion? How do you get the understanding of what you are really meant to do in life? And if that happens, how to jump in?
  94. Marcia, I see you as the energizer bunny. You represent unstoppable courage. So I gave myself a deadline. When I got the flu and did not feel like publishing my book, I did it against all odds. “Travel Tops for Ireland: What the Experts Forgot to Tell You” is now a published book. So thank you for the inspiration. My present goal is to find alternative solutions to healing a tumor. I am finding answers to implement. Thank you for Who you are!
    • Hi Marifran, Google http://www.bengstonresearch.com/. I am in the alternative healing arts myself and took William Bengston’s first seminar in Europe at the IAK (Institue for Applied Kinesiology in Freiburg/Germany) a couple of months ago. He works in a different style from mine but seems to have great results not only in his scientific research with mice done at five U.S. university hospitals but also with humans. Although a professor of sociology at a N.Y. College he seems to be a natural born talent with cancer. He has an easy method to learn method he teaches to the biology students in his labs so they achieve the same astonishing healing results he does. The five part Youtube video on his homepage is worthwhile watching. Maybe there will be a seminar in your area if you get in touch with him. Good luck with your goal. I sincerely hope it’s not your tumor you wish to find a solution for. Best, Beatrice Gabriel Dietikon/Switzerland

    Hi Marcia and fello dreamers In mom (masters of manifestation) last year, november, san diego.. It was my 25th birthday, I though it be an adequate present to myself as my quarter century check-in with the universe. I dealt with a lot of issues I thought I had cleared, around my father and my critic. One of the steps I did, was recommended by my awesome roommate, and in line with Marcia’s teachings, was to write a list of my dream partner.. So I finally did. The list over 200 items long!… since then I met several guys.. but in April after REALIZING and accepting I did want love in my heart and succumbing to the vulnerability of desiring companionship, I met a fellar That Very Day!! He had actually been in my circle of friends, and in my surroundings for years and yet I had never seen him; or perhaps it was not the right time. I know in my heart that this is the right thing for the moment and this man indeed has many many many of the characteristics I wrote down in my dream soulmate list. If actually never dated someone so compatible. I must say however that having the coaching a workshops initially were very supportive, but now being away from it has distanced the strength of what I learned. I try and bestow the dreaming aspect with my friends or where ever. It’s really interesting to think how much in the negative, the cant’s and restraints we live in. I believe money is a delusion. We as human beings have the capacity of doing anything. In my live though recently I fell into deep depression and it has taken a lot of self care to get me to a healthier place. How can I keep the skills alive? Though I’ve said no more, and found clarity in my life, I still feel as though I operate at very murky waters. How can I swim free in clear blue waters towards all the capacities I care to achieve?!

    I know that I am passionate about many things in my life, but when people ask me what my Passion is and what I truly want to do, be, or have, I suddenly find myself drawing a blank and not having a clear answer. The words “I Don’t Know” escape my lips far too often. I know that a part of me DOES know, but I can’t seem to access it. How can I gain clarity to discover what my Passion/Destiny truly is so that I can start to make an action plan and take steps to make it a reality? I know I am capable of accomplishing great things, but I feel stuck. Thank you.
  97. I dreamed i had money coming to me from everwhere. Also dreamed my husband was being bitened by ants. I also dreamed i was in school, now i am in Real Estate school. Thank U, Doris Williams-Mullen
  98. HI Marcia, You are amazing-how did you know I needed to hear this today? I worked with your program years ago & even with one of your terrific coaches (Lynn) and got great results. Then I kind of drifted away from my dream & coaching and found myself backsliding big time. Here’s me question…what do you do when you have all the tapes, programs. etc, but still stop yourself over & over again? Deserving issues keep coming up.. Thanks so much! Donna
  99. Hi Marcia! I thought I’d tell my story as you requested. I have a dream that I will be able to make my house into a learning center for kids who are not being educated in the arts. I got the dream about a year and a half ago, and I’ve been holding on to it and moving toward it slowly, but not altogether surely. I am in the process of divorcing my husband and starting a whole new life as part of this process I managed to get the garage cleared out of a mountain of junk, and now am looking for the answers on how to practically get my dream going. I think that I am offering something that is needed in my community, the Antelope Valley in CA. I would like to say that I never felt discouraged about fulfilling this dream, but I have. Other times, it seems that people come out to tell me to just keep going with the plan and I feel great about it. I wonder some times if it is the “right” plan, but I haven’t got a plan B yet. I hope that I will be able to make enough money from teaching that I can afford to live a good life in my home and be helpful to so many kids who are not getting a well-rounded education in the arts. I am an excellent teacher already, and at this point I want to take the steps forward to achieving this goal on way or another. Your speaking in this video made me want to share this dream because I can use all the strength I can get to fulfill this desire/dream. That ray of hope you talked about is so very important to me. I feel strongly that I am walking in a good direction, and I am grateful for all the help and encouragement I can get. I can tell when I move toward the fulfillment of this dream that I feel better. Thank you for your kindness and listening. Annie Wallack

My health has improved over the last several months through ISAGENIX, lost those stubborn inches and feel quite alive again. Now I have to move forward not stay still and frozen in my tracks. Thanks Marcia…just seeing your smile and positive energy on video is good for my soul.

    How to keep life from getting in the way? There are always important distractions & fires to deal with & it seems I’m the only one who can deal w them. Long story.
  104. Hello Marcia, Last year I watched a video you posted about a fastfood manager who had his young employees sign up with Dream University. Over time, these employees got excited about work because they saw it as a stepping stone to further develop their dreams and aspirations rather than seeing it as just a dead end job.The atitude and work ethic of the staff was transformed. I LOVED IT! And it has been brought to rememberance when working with people in all different ages and scenerios not to get discouraged but continue to seek the gift that is there…a stepping stone to fuller and greater possibilities of dream fulfillment.To everything there is a season… Thank you! Elizabeth Wilcox
  105. Hi Marcia! Great to see you living so authentically. 7 years ago you were the keynote speaker at the Cookie Lee Convention. It was the first time I’d heard of you, and I hung on every word of your story. You told everyone in the audience to turn to the person beside them and tell them what your dream was and where you saw yourself in 10 years. Well…..I promptly turned to my friend and out of my mouth came “I’m going to be doing what Marcia does!”. I was pointing at the stage and you. In my heart I’ve always wanted to speak to large groups of women and encourage and motivate them. I’ve held onto that dream, and I’ve been taking action. I just recently started Confident Christian Women Worldwide and my vision is to help women of faith with their mindset issues. Your message today is right in line with my teachings! I still have your book and dvd, and YOU are one of my biggest mentors. I look forward to seeing you again someday…..maybe I’ll be a guest on your tv show :-) Blessings to you as you continue this work! Lynn Schreiner – Massachusetts

  107. Hi Marcia, I have followed you for at least 1.5 to 2 years, and love your vitality and energy and your willingness to let your vulnerability show–you’ve always been an inspiration to me. I have a fledgling curation blog website that I am diligently working to monetize, and I have a fierce determination to make it, not only work, but work with amazing success. What you shared in today’s video has further inspired me to believe in myself, to “never give up,” to enjoy the process and keep going and going. ..to see and experience that little opening of “Is this possible?” and respond with a resounding “YES! it is possible.” And proceed on from there. This, I owe to you today for sharing your insight and encouragement. Love you! and Bless You.

    Fabulous video and truly hit the spot on a day when I’ve considered giving up on my dream because it’s too hard! It’s not of course I’m just juggling being a mum to my beautiful 6 month old daughter Shara with being the only income earner and trying to get a new business launched. Just overwhelm! My question is how did you get your video and feedback etc to appear like this so professionally particularly to play back so beautifully even on an I phone with limited download speed? Jo
  109. Hi Marcia. Your video message was great. I’m a screenwriter and the limbo of the business is a roller coaster. Yes, the thought that there is a small possibility that my films can get made really brings hope. You should join Women In Film, it’s a wonderful group. Thanks for your encouragement.

    Hi Marcia, I’ve been following your work for about 3 years and took one of your phone/web courses about 2 years ago. The job I was in was making me sick, and through your encouragement and practical advice I was able to find a way to quit that job. I have been home with my son as a full time Mom for the last 18 months and have restored my health, soul and spirit. I start a new job outside the home tomorrow making substantially more than the job I left, and although it is not the ultimate dream job, I know in my heart that the only way I would have attracted this option into my life, is that you helped me to believe that my dream (to me at home with my child) was important to strive for simply because it was important to me. I continue to do the work through the course work exercises you laid out to strive for the bigger dream of my life, but for now I am exhilarated at the opportunity I have to begin again healthy and whole to help support my family in this new position.
  111. Even though I have made progress, I keep going back to a question that is ingrained in me. “Is it okay that the actions I’m taking are with the intention that I will leave a big impact? Is it okay to give myself permission to, as it’s said, live out loud – live big?” This goes deeper than saying affirmations with passion, etc. I feel that until I truly give myself permission to really play big I will continue to hold myself back. Marcia, what are the thoughts that I need to explore to get past this? I know in my heart that if I can get through this question I will really play big in my life. Suggestions?
  112. Consciously I know that I can be, do and have whatever I want. But subconsciouly I must have beliefs that are holding me back, not allowing some things into my life. Since these beliefs are unconsious how do I find out what these limiting beliefs are in order to change them? I had no problem attracting a perfect job and a perfect appartment into my life. I expected them to come and they came fast!! It is a different story when I am trying to attract a perfect partner. I say to myself he is on the way. I am expecting him to show up and I let go of attachment. Or my Reiki business and my coaching business – at times they are blooming and then all of the sudden they are not – what am I doing wrong subconsciouly ? I am very happy,grateful and appreciative for all experiences and everthing I have in my life. But I am spiritual being, I want to grow and expend in every posibble way. Marcia, do you have any insights you would like to share with me ?

    Hi Marcia!! I first heard you speak at a Junior League meeting in the SF Bay Area in September 2005. I sat in the audience and thought – my dream is to do what Marcia is doing! At the time I was working an 8-5 desk job in personal financial planning. Frankly, running my own business, speaking and helping others experience a more extraordinary life seemed impossible and way out of my league. I held onto what you said that night and I held onto my dream. 7 years later I am a life coach and LOVING it. AND I am doing a 90 minute workshop for the Junior League tomorrow evening. I am delighted and inspired by all that you have accomplished. Keep going, I am right behind you. I have my fingers crossed for your TV show. All my best, Jessica

    Hi Marcia, it is very nice to see your enthusiasm, your positivity and the way you talk about personal things. Just seen you and listen make me fell good, thanks for your work and your interest for people’s dreams. I have this dream of sharing my experiencies in this 12 years journey of internal growing, beating big problems, an invalidant disease, a change of country and profession. Also this journey has been giving me a lot of knowledge, studied psicotherapy, alternative therapies, energy healing and other technics that helped me and all the people I worked with in the last years. Thanks a lot Águeda from Madrid, Spain
  115. Hello~My intention is to share how Dream University helped me find my new dream. Less than a year after I experienced a profound change in my life, I discovered Marcia and Dream University. We were a perfect fit-I was looking for a new dream and Dream University was in the business of helping others find new dreams! Because I found value the program, I became a Certified Dream Coach® and completed all of the Dream University programs. My new dream came to fruition! I started my own business and I offer this profound program to others and help them achieve their dreams! Janice in Chicago
  116. In 2009 I discovered the Law of Attraction. It, almost immediately, made a 95% change in my outlook and experience of life that many who know me also observed. When I discovered your message, I have enjoyed watching and listening to your videos as part of the daily uplifting ideas that I circulate in my mind in order to keep my vibration high and my creative efforts powerful. Thank you for your contributions – I will watch this one again.
  117. I am self employed and very successful however there is a level I want to reach before I retire in 4 years and it just isn’t happening. Each year seems the same as the past and I want a quantum leap this year

    Hi Marcia Am in a tough spot . I am working at ITARI (Indus Training and Research IInstitute) which is into education and on some weeknds i do iempowered law of attraction workshop and guided meditations. But i am in a big fix. My dream is to join someone like Abraham (Jerry and Esther Hicks) as i love them. I have written email to them but no reponse yet. What should i do ? I have also applied to Mindvalley as well but yet to hear from them. Should i resign from ITARI or not is what i am wondering? Should i take the risk ? Should i further develop the meditation CDs i have developed? Should i stick to education? I am not very clear as to whether i should start soemthing on my own or try and join someone or some company in personal growth – i am applying to many places but not getting any repsonse yet. I am in Bangalore, India.

    Hi Marciy, I’ve been following your blog and videos over the last four or so years and they – that is, you – encouraged me time and again to dream on and, even more importantly, try out. There have been a few nice sucesses in my work as a freelance writer, editor and councellor, and lots of fun just doing it. It’s all about the way I approach the world, about believing that there have to be more possibilities than I can perceive just now – and finding out, yes, indeed, there are. Thanks a lot and thanks for keeping up and expanding your work. All the best, Kathrin

    I’ve been away for months too. I did some of the dream u work and then put changes into action. I moved from living above my brother’s garage in NH to my own mobile home on 1+ acres in rural GA next to my daughter and her family. It has taken a summer and 2 drives between the states to set up household (moving by small car). Now settled and with bills to pay off on cards, I am ready to join my daughter in her business. She embroideries and I sew. I have produced a few children outfits to sell with her embroideries on them. Action to be taken is to get them out in the world and sold! This is where I need help. Promoting is not my strong point. But, hey, a 64 year young woman who makes the changes I have can do anything!
  121. Also, I want to say that I have studied your work for many years, having completed an online course, gotten ebooks, attended two Create Your Future Now workshops, and participated in online dialogues. I think the best and most pivotal technique I have learned from you is how to handle our relationship to the doubter. That is, the idea of not letting the doubter quell the dreamer, then enlisting the doubter as a realist who can help find solutions and action steps. I often draw on this teaching alone. It has helped me through the years find my dreams, then work toward them without fear taking over. I have also shared this teaching with many of my friends. Thank you.
  122. Marcia, you are fabulous and inspirational I first heard you live on stage at ewomen network in Dallas three years ago. You have been a guiding light in my life. You are concise and generous with your teaching. I want to learn more about how to speak and share my gifts. Sometimes I get stuck because I feel llke I have to share the most profound insight that has ever been spoken. Maybe that’s the fear of being enough. What would you reccommend regarding how to choose what we share? Thanks I’m excited to learn and listen to your new series. Fondly Janna http://www.MakeArtOfMyDay.com
  123. I will see you in Texas soon, so Excited about the certification. I realized this year that when I was at work in our established -over 35 year- carpet store , I was unhappy to the point that I felt my soul died a piece at a time for every minute working there. My husband and I were in the midst of a corporate decision and I started losing the conversation to muffles as his voice was fading I was realizing I was done. I knew with everything in me I was living someone else’s dream! My father in law opened the store in 1975 and my husband and I run it to this day. As I have been by his side for over 25 years, now… I knew I could no longer live someone else’s dream. I looked at him and said I cant do it anymore. I have to get out and live my dream, wasn’t sure what that would be but I was excited. Long story short, I am attending your certification in a couple of weeks. I hired my very capable daughter to run the office , starting this week! I am free to live my own dream. I want to help others to stop living dreams created by other people. My question to you is what insight do you have for someone on the cusp of realizing they are in another persons dream and need to wake up? I love the idea of this video series… ~ Pam

    Greetings, Bonjour from Québec Marcia Thanks for the insights. I am a multifunctional individual ( nurse, musician, singer, teacher, life coach) who always seeks to push out the boundaries by what Maxwell Max calls the C.A.N.I. principle. The «Constant And Never Ending Improvement». Of course that requires work of oneself on a daily basis and such is life. I am fortunate to have understood that early on in my teenage years. As you like to emphasize that action is an important key to success but that follows of course dreaming of something that brings on into one’s soul pleasure and passion. Without that spark,proper action is unlikely not happen. Like you, I meet people who are unfortunately too often very creative in finding excuses to justify inaction. They usually are even more creative in finding excuses for complaining about their situation. Over the years I have let go of the «SOS Andre Role» and I was able to transform it to «Just Listening/Reflecting Andre Role». This way I find I am better able to encourage people in seeking their own path to a better life without selling their soul. Thanks again for your good inspiration and I am looking forward to more insights from you. André
  125. Thanks Marcia for that precious reminder to look for that drop of possibility in the darkness of seeming impossibility. Sometimes the latter can be overwhelming but the reminder that we can choose where our thoughts go is a powerful one. So glad you’re ‘back’. Much love.
  126. You definitely have a smiling, contagious enthusiasm about you that inspires me and makes me think more positively, Marcia! I pray to God about his will and direction for my life as well. I feel that He brought your instruction into my life at the exact time that I needed it most. My family and I are recovering from a tragedy and life is beginning to look hopeful again. I am learning to set goals and work at creating the changes I want and quickly dreams that seemed out of reach are coming into focus. Thank you for being such a cheerleader for people you don’t even know. You are really helping to make a difference in my life anyway. May the Lord bless you!
  127. I am sitting in front of the computer as I think of how to grow my psychotherapy practice and get this email with a link to this video. I have just watched it and noticed how I am putting much more energy and time in believing that it is a difficult and unrewarding profession then that it is actually possible. I thank you for that! I wonder though how to sustain that new belief and make sure you act on it – to do lists don’t seem to work for me… Best regards Renata

    Marcia, Thank you! I love following your blog and video messages. I have many questions, but I will narrow it down to one. As a busy mom (work fulltime), have 2 school age kids, my husband works 3 hours away and is gone Sunday thru Friday, how do I overcome the daily obstacles to achieving my dream? I want to write/be a writer, but the bills gotta get paid, the kids gotta eat and do homework. at the end of the day, by 9 pm, i’m exhausted and have no energy left for me. what do i do? your advice, guidance and recommendations are welcome!
  129. Hi Marcia, I am a film/theatre director who recently left my day job to build my own freelance accounting business. This business gives me freedom, flexibility and stability to pursue my artwork. I did work with a coach for years to devise this route toward my dreams. However, because it is not my passion, I encounter a lot of resistance to it which gets in the way. I try to keep the big picture in mind, but part of me doesn’t want to be doing accounting at all and I find myself trying to avoid it. Is this the best approach to achieving my dream of making film and theatre? Thanks for your insights.
  130. would you give me permission to apply some “emotion code” to your being at that moment in time? Be the blessing that you are Aurel
  131. Loved this video Marcia. Working with you in your classes as well as one-on-one has clarified my vision. I had big dreams and felt like I was taking a lot of action, but making no progress. Over the last year working with you and your programs, I have set a course for the next three years, with steady actions to create the life I have dreamed of. It’s much less stressful and my life today in the short space of a year is nothing less than miraculous. I am doing work I am passionate about, serving others and receiving a generous income. More projects in the works, but I’m moving forward instead of standing still! Thank you!
  132. Hi Marcia, I find myself resisting discipline. How do you stay focused and disciplined? Also, it was nice meeting you at the Orange County ICF meeting. Roger

    I find that I fall back on my “default negative beliefs”. The moment has passed before I realize that I was negative or making decisions from a place of fear. Do you have any exercises that I could do daily or weekly to help me “manage my mind” better? Thanks for all you do!!
  134. thank you for all that you do, Marcia! I have been working to do outreach for a Holistic Reflexologist. Im spinning bc the work that i have done thus far has not manifested in any folks signing up. Ive been calling, Facebooking, emailing niche areas such as doulas/midwifes. my dream is to manifest an overwelming response and roomfull of clients for her for her training program. how do i do this? this “failure” has also affecting me as I will soon begin to organize my business as well. im managing my mind, like you say, but it has its ups nad downs. thank you for your feedback and concrete ideas to shift this spinningness! peace, shweta
  135. I understand what you said about considering the remote possibility that your fondest desire could come true. I’ve always seen myself as successful until the past 12 years and I’m in a terrible rut. I tend to blame this on menopause in general. But, ultimately, I know it is my thinking that goes in circles and therefore I’m getting nowhere fast. Any really quick tips for changing the vicious cycle? The longer I stay stuck the worse it gets.

    How can I really overcome fear of failure and need for financial security? I have an opportunity for a position that aligns with my dream, but has financial impact (50% less what i earn now) with no guarantees for return to my current compensation or better.
