Favorite Quote: "It has been said that you are what you eat, but it can also be said that you are what you speak. Words frame our worldview."
Dreams to Reality: Author Your Dreams Action Plan Part I, as the name indicates, is part one of a series of books. The second part is an accompanying workbook. The third part is software and your very own published dream plan book.
This part of the series is the concepts - the what and the why - of dream planning. It falls into the genre of self-help books. It discusses the concepts in a frameworks of four steps - conceive, believe, receive, and achieve. Determine what you want. Believe that you can reach it. Ensure that you mind and heart are open to receiving even if it is not quite how you envision it. Work to achieve your dreams.
The ideas are not new. They are presented in a logical, easy to read format. The book makes many references to outside sources including the second and third part of this series. Each section also has additional resources listed for further reading. However, the concepts can stand alone and be applied without those sources also.
If this genre of books appeals to you, you will find this book a useful new addition.
