I've had several big dreams in the past twenty years that I have sought and accomplished, all while fighting depression and illness, two wounds that have propelled me to change my perspective in life. This book helped me to see how I did all that. I found myself nodding my head so many times as I read this book! Marcia Wieder gets it! She understands how to revive or help you find your purpose so you can make your dreams a reality; she knows how to remove fears and doubt; and she teaches you how to use your resources well.
Though I've always believed it's important to dream, Marcia Wieder has showed me in depth how to gain clarity and how to apply strategies to tackle some of my bigger dreams. This book is very detailed in that Marcia doesn't quickly gloss over each step. Instead she assigns exercises, uses repetition so it sticks and above all coaches you throughout the whole process. She has a positive and reassuring tone. Moreover, peppered throughout the book, are many life experiences of individuals from various circumstances, showing us that anything is possible. I loved reading these experiences. They were inspiring and motivating.
The book is divided into three parts: Clarifying your dream, Believing in your dream and Acting on your dream. I learned so much from this book and gleaned what I need to work on as I go about implementing my new business venture. This book came at the perfect time for me. It taught me what I am doing right and that many of my fears come from a lack of clarity about some aspect of my dream. Thank you, Marcia for your insightful words and coaching!
I highly recommend this book to all who aspire to do more, who have lost their way, who don't think dreaming is important. Actually I think everyone should read this book. Like she states at the beginning of her book, Martin Luther King, Jr. didn't say, "I have a plan." He said, "I have a dream." I'm sure you do too.
She has taught at Stanford’s Business School and as president of the National Association of Women Business Owners, she assisted 3 U.S. presidents. She is a member of the Transformational Leadership Council and on the advisory board for the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
