One of my favorite books of all time is Oprah Winfrey’s book, “What I know for sure”

And one of the biggest reasons why is because it prompted me to ask myself the same question, “What do I know for sure?”

Here’s the insight that emerged clearly for me from this reflection, “I know for sure that I will continue coaching for the rest of my life.”

I was amazed by how certain I was about this. When I dug deeper, I realized why.

As a coach, I look at my role as someone who enables people’s dreams.

Creating freedom that they never believed was possible. Getting into the best shape of their life. Growing a business to levels that were previously unimaginable. Scaling that summit that once looked so far away.

I help people create miracles that they previously considered impossible. And this for me sparks joy like nothing else. I consider it a gift that keeps on giving.

Over the years, I feel grateful to have enabled hundreds of dreams – of coaches, creative visionaries, leaders and high performers. And this has also enabled me to pursue my own!

In this newsletter, I am going to share what I call The Dream Creation formula. I use this to not only create space for my client’s biggest dreams but also help them make massive progress towards them.

Years ago, I read about this simple formula in master coach Michael Neil’s book Creating the Impossible. It inspired me to tweak and test this formula with hundreds of clients and I am amazed at how it works every single time.

I want to share this with you as the foundation on which you can create massive momentum for fuelling yours or your client’s dreams.

The Dream Creation Formula = Your Focussed Intention + Your Consistent Action over Time x God*

Here God* stands for any higher power that you believe in – The Universe, Nature, Your Higher Intelligence.

What I love about this formula is that it clears the 3 E’s that often holds us back from creating our dream.

Let’s now explore each element of this formula in more detail.

1. Dream Creation

Every time, we want to create something new and fresh into the world, we must go beyond the noise of our mind into that quiet space where everything seems possible.

We need to find that silence between the musical notes, the page beneath the words we are writing and the space into which our thoughts appear, stick and disappear.

This comes from knowing 2 sacred truths of creation:

  • Everything is created from nothing. 
  • Your Dreams > Your Fears

The first element of creating any dream in the physical world, is to create it in your own mind. Because once visualized, your brain finds creative ways to make it possible.

What you visualize doesn’t need to be perfect. It just needs to evoke FEELINGS and IMAGES that you can play with.

To facilitate this, sometimes I invite my clients into a deep guided meditation where they close their eyes and visualize exactly what they desire like it’s happening right now.

Or speak out their dream and share it with someone they trust.In other cases, I invite them to take some color and paint their dreams, without judgment.

This brings me to the next step.

2. Focussed Intention

Now that my clients have visualized the first version of their dream, it’s time to focus their intention by tapping into their right brain.

I do this because I’ve come to realize that most people know EXACTLY what they desire. The problem is they’re “scared to allow themselves to do it in case it does not work out.”

This is why, next, I invite them to challenge their fears. I tell them, “Imagine you are entering a cage match between Your intention vs Your fears. Let’s see what your dream is really made of.

3. Consistent Action over Time.

Everyone I have met with a high creative output has figured out that the only way to do good work is consistently do lots of it. Show up each day to your gym, your keyboard, your boardroom or your coaching calls and do the work!

Gradually over time, doing the work transitions into a full blown creative flow that makes you lose track of time. I am sure each one of you has experienced this – a time in your life when you were so immersed in what you were doing that when you emerge from your cave, your partner or family says, “ Where have you been? You missed lunch.” And you think to yourself, “Wow, I had no idea how quickly time just passed.”

The biggest challenge I see when I coach people to create consistency is they don’t have a system to stay consistent.

You do not rise to the level of your goals. You fall to the level of your systems.

— James Clear

The most important system to stay consistent is what Michael Neill refers to as programming your Inner GPS. It involves three elements:

1) Do you have a clear destination and a plan of action?

This is the end result of your dream project. Most people have this in their head but when it’s only in your head, it’s always fuzzy. Start off by writing down exactly what you believe is the finish line of your dream project. The more specific and clear you are, the better.

Then chunk it down into quarters, months and weeks.

3) Do you know how to measure your progress, the right way?

In order for Google Maps to tell you your best route, it needs to locate exactly where you are right now.

The problem is most of our clients are continuously distorting where they are right now by judging it. When you ask them how they are doing in relation to their dream, they end up sharing how they are feeling in that moment about the dream.

I often find that no matter how much success some of my clients have, they are perpetually dissatisfied with their progress. The problem here is not that they haven’t actually made progress. It’s how they are measuring it.

The only way to measure your progress the right way is to Always Measure Backwards.

Legendary entrepreneur coach, Dan Sullivan recommends asking these 3 questions to get an objective snapshot of your progress.

  1. Where am I right now?
  2. What are my big wins from the last 90 days?
  3. What are my desired wins for the next 90 days?

Think of this as your own quarterly board meeting with yourself. If you can do this practice even more regularly such as every week or even every day, you will experience incredible momentum in the pursuit of your dreams.

4. Trusting A Higher Power

The final element of dream creation is Trust. It’s this trust in whatever you believe in – God, The Universe, Nature, Your Higher Intelligence that will help you weather the storm.

There will be days when your dreams will be questioned. On other days, you will have to pivot and rethink something you always thought you were creating. Then there are days when everything seems out of your control or you make a mistake.

On days like these, the one thing that can help you become discouragement-proof is to trust something bigger than you that’s led you into the path of what you are creating.

On days when my clients are truly questioning everything they are doing, I encourage them to take a step back and ask themselves,

  1. Who have I become in the process of creating this goal?
  2. What do I truly believe in and trust?
  3. What actions can I take that are fully under my control right now?

I’ve consistently observed that people who truly trust a higher power are so much more psychologically flexible in their approach towards their dreams.

The more I create and coach others to create their dreams using this formula, the more I am blown away by the magic.

I hope you will give this a try. To create your own dreams. And to enable your clients to step into theirs.

Always rooting for you!
