Success Through Clear Dreams - I Do Not Want To Lie On My Death Bed Saying I Wish I Had Done That
Many UK citizens want to settle or retire in Spain the land of sun, healthy food, villas and blue swimming pools. Only a few of these actually achieve their dream. What makes the difference?
Those who succeed can teach the rest of us a lot about courage, determination, drive and self-respect. They also teach the power of a dream and the power of taking action to achieve it.
Louise Mariott, at the age of 38, went off to Spain with her three daughters and without financial help from anyone including their fathers.
Louise is a beauty expert who beautifies the beautiful (both men and women) but she needed to make money fast. Money was going out but very little was coming in.
If the worst came to the worst, she would have to return home in a few months to live with her parents but she did not plan to do that:
"I have more self-respect and more drive. How many women would have come out to Spain with no help and three kids?"
She had no regrets about her move to Marbella. The family oriented life style suited her. The food was healthy and she loved the Spanish people. She commented:
"I won't be lying on my death bed saying I wish I had done that."
Louise eventually found a partner, Nancy, who is a fashion adviser and she also found a location for a salon.
There were problems but she was excited by the possibilities. She kept her dream in mind.
The salon was called "Posh". This logo was placed on the side of her new car. Louise also planned to market by word of mouth and a few fliers.
However, few plans reach completion without a lot of hassle. At one point, Louise was feeling so stressed that she said that POSH stood for "Peed Off Stressed and Hormonal." At least she had kept her sense of humour.
Cards arrived saying "We are so happy that your dreams are coming true."
At the time, they seemed to be mocking the dire situation she was in.
Despite all the stress and tension, hundreds of people showed up to the opening of "POSH". Her business had got off to a great start.
Louise could comment:
"Now my dream has come true!"
Sarah, an estate agent, provides us with another role model. At the age of 7, Sarah wrote in her exercise book:
"My name is Sarah and I want to live in a white house in Spain."
She was already, at a very early age, using the power of setting and visualising goals clearly. She is now living this dream. At 26, she has a successful business with a partner.
She has a lifestyle of parties, swimming and the freedom not to worry about the weather or crime. She finds that people in Spain are much more relaxed and can enjoy their lives.
Probably the key to her success is knowing clearly what she wanted at the age of seven.
Many people never stop to think deeply about what they really want from life until they reach the age of 70.
If you are 70 it is not too late. Imagine yourself at 80 wishing you had started to achieve you're dream at 70. As you are still 70 what is stopping you?

Life Lesson--Be, Do, Have
This revelation hit me the other day while I was listening to a cassette on having financial balance in your life. On the tape, the author talked about a goal setting seminar he went to. The lesson he was revealing is that too often when we set goals, we are setting the "have" part of the equation, then "doing" the work of getting to the goal without ever making the effort to "be" anything.
The Power Of Partnerships
Everything we have in life is because of the help of other people. If you have a successful job where you are rapidly moving up it is in large part because of the help you've received from your coworkers. If you have successful and harmonious relationships it is in part because of the other person. If you own a successful and growing business it is in part because of your employees and the relationships you've developed with other businesses associates.

The Core Curriculum Of A Wonderful Life
An acquaintance of mine once lamented that she was utterly frustrated with her lack of progress toward her dreams, given her age. According to her outlook, if you hadn't made it by then, you weren't anywhere near as likely to do so afterwards. A very late bloomer indeed, she ranted, and going to seed before the blush was off the rose, to boot. Ouch. Fortunately, I didn't believe a word of it and now she is happily off proving herself wrong in many ways - but I digress.
Dont Listen To Successful People
Do you know what the problem is with asking successful people for advice? They don't always know why they are successful - but they'll give you all the reasons you want. I once watched an 100-year-old man explain that smoking every day was the secret to his longevity. It would be great to know why he lived so long, but I'm pretty sure we won't learn by asking him.
Thinkers are Achievers
It has been truly said, and history confirms, that the growth of the United States is due more to independent creative thinkers than to scholars and statesmen. We seldom consciously think about it, but we all share that unique capacity to THINK and are born with a potential of greatness that exceeds our wildest imagination.

Vision -- What Are You Doing Today Towards Achieving Your Vision?
Every man who accomplishes things sees first in his mind what he wishes to do. He puts away all doubt. It makes no difference how small or how large the thing you want to do may be; if you have an unlimited confidence in your ability to do it, you will do it. - Charles Fillmore
Opening Your Unlimited Potential
It is high time you know the truth about yourselves. You can be whatever you desire, you can do whatever you think or imagine. You have the magic key in your pocket, which opens the door to all your highest dreams and wishes, the key which opens the gates of prosperity and abundance beyond your imagination.
Build Rapport Through Buzzwords

The Power of Mind-Imagery
Today I feel inspired that I should speak more to the framework of a successful mindset. We've already discussed how to ignore negative thoughts and encourage positive thoughts by monitoring what we allow to dwell in our minds. We've also talked about the power of affirmations in changing our inner-talk to things we want in our lives. Today I think we should focus on how to use vivid imagery to obtain the things of our heart's desire. I call this "Mind-Imagery."

The BIG Secret to Success in Anything You Do

If you can master it, you can have or become anything you want... often in a very short amount of time! So what is this incredibly powerful skill? It is the ability to concentrate. In other words, the ability to focus all of your mental powers on one important task until that task is completed, and completed well.
The Characteristics of a Winner
As kind of a hobby I like to watch people. Just kind of sit back and quietly watch how they react and respond to others and their environment.

I'd like to point out a few of these characteristics for the purpose of reinforcing them.
