company. This is a 52-step guide, one week at a time, to help you accomplish your dreams. These
chapters will encourage you to: Ask tough questions that will help you to focus on your goals Experiment

Week 1: Take a StepA journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.-- Lao-tzu, Chinese
proverbask1. What did I wish for when I was young?2. As a child, did my wishes and dreams ever come
true?3. Am I willing to wish, dream, and do, even though I'm not always sure what I'm wishing for?4.
Today, right now, am I paying attention to the parts of my life that matter the most?5. What's the first
thing I need to do before I embark upon this year-long journey?6. Am I prepared for the hard work ahead?
7. What will my life look like in a year?Like you, Wish It, Dream It, Do It is comprised of many
interrelated pieces. What brings about movement in one part of your life is likely to promote activity in
other areas as well. On the flip side, if you're stuck in one situation, another aspect of your life may come
to a standstill, too. Applying the holistic principles set forth in Wish It, Dream It, Do It will enhance your
ability to become whole and centered.The material will help you uncover and reexamine old beliefs that
have curtailed your efforts to wish, dream, and do. Some strategies will test your commitment and resolve
to create the kind of life you've always wanted. Each week you'll learn how to master a new strategy, but
more important, you'll learn something new about yourself. Throughout the book you'll find the support
and encouragement you need to propel and maintain your progress.As you immerse yourself in the
strategies presented here, you will discover what you're meant to do, your purpose. But don't expect your
heart's desire to remain constant as you work your way through the book. At one moment your dream will
be in picture-perfect focus. Perhaps your dream to pursue a master's in social work is beginning to fit in
nicely with your schedule and you're prepared to register for your first class. At the next moment,
however, your dream might resemble a swirling blur preparing to become another image, different from the
one that came before it but more defined, maybe even a little sharper -- you still want the degree, but
you're thinking that maybe you'd first like to get some experience in the field.Throughout the process you
will occasionally come face-to-face with certain fears. Many of us worry that others will find out that we're
frauds. This is especially true when we begin to inch ever so slowly toward our dreams. Remember this:
Pursuing your dreams is never a fraudulent act. Still, like little hooded goblins, these fears may linger
longer than you'd like. You can try to shake free of their power, but they're stubborn and they'll hang on. If
you want to capture your dreams, you must learn to coexist with these fears. Certainly, some of your
fears will surrender. Others, though, will want to stick around. You can either allow those hangers-on to
hold you back or face them head-on and say, "Fine! You're not going to let go? Well, hold on, because
it's going to be quite a ride."experimentSuspend your disbelief. Okay, so you've never found a four-leaf
clover or thrown a penny into a wishing well. Perhaps you don't even think about the stars or notice when
one shoots across the horizon in a blaze of glory. Well, before you even turn the page, relinquish your
doubts -- for at least a week -- so that you will be more...
