Making Your Dreams Come True [Hardcover]

Marcia Wieder

Available from these sellers.

Book Description

Dec 1999
Imagine living the life you've always dreamed about--the career, the relationship, and even simply that vacation you keep putting off. In Making Your Dreams Come True, Marcia Wieder teaches you a concrete formula to overcome whatever is standing between you and your dream--mostly your own self-limiting beliefs--and to rediscover the passion that may have been hidden for years.
As a dream coach and entrepreneur, Marcia Wieder knows what she's talking about. In 1993, she left her successful East Coast media business and moved to San Francisco, the city of her dreams. Six years later, with a thriving international business as a motivational speaker, she's a shining example of what is possible when you follow that inner passion.
With Marcia as your personal coach, you too will learn step-by-step how to define and manifest your dreams. But according to Marcia, you must first examine your attitudes and beliefs to see whether or not they empower or impede you. Learning how to get your own beliefs on your side is just one of the specific strategies of her plan. Throughout the book, Marcia also provides a wealth of helpful advice--from how to look at your life from a genuinely fresh perspective to designing an environment both physically and emotionally that will support your dream. You will also discover the "Passion Pyramid," a useful tool that reveals how passion helps you accomplish your dreams more quickly.
Filled with stories of real people, practical exercises, and a personal workbook for you, Making Your Dreams Come True delivers on its promise: When you've finished, you will know how to make your dreams come true--any time you choose.

5.0 out of 5 stars Find Purpose and Passion in Your Life 6 Jan 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
I have read many types of books on self-improvement which have helped to improved my life, but this book has moved me beyond explanation. In just two hours, I have already read over half of the book while completing Marcia Wieder's valuable exercises. I am extremely excited because through these exercises I am discovering my true life's purpose and actually envisioning specific, tangible ways to accomplish my dreams.
By the way, I am a very practical minded woman with a secure, well-paying job in a Fortune 500 company. I also have three great children, a happy marriage, own a large home, am in excellent health with terrific friends, and I'm earning straight A's in college (among many other blessings). Still, I have not been content with how my life has developed and I couldn't quite pinpoint the problem. This book has left me with a renewed hope for a bright and exciting future. If something is missing in your life and you want to live it with passion, I highly recommend you get this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Practical & Powerful 6 Jan 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Just wanted to take the time to share my experience in reading this book with anyone considering buying it. Of all of the books I've read on the topic of success (personal & professional), this is by far the most practical and powerful step-by-step guide I've ever encountered. Marcia Wieder is a funny and captivating writer with a clear and focused approach to acheiving goals. I've read many books that have suggested ideas for creating success that simply were not suitable solutions that could be easily applied in my life. This book is different, the instructions in this book are written for the average person, not someone with the ability to just walk out of a job to pursue a dream of becoming something else. For some this may be a viable alternative, not for me. I needed help clarifying my dreams and an easy formula for manifesting these dreams in my life. This book has been more helpful to me than any other book I've read on the subject of acheiving goals, personal/professional success, etc. After reading this book, I began to identify what my passion was and how I could bring that passion into my everyday life without doing anything radical or unrealistic! This book is fantastic and I'm sure anyone who chooses to read it will not regret their decision!

4.0 out of 5 stars Dreamers Who Are Doers! 13 Jan 2004
By Dr. W. G. Covington, Jr. - Published on Amazon.com
America's "Dream Coach" suggests that in order to make your dreams reality, you take action in the direction of your dreams. After identifying one's passions, followup should be made in the form of acting on those discoveries. A dreamer must start the journey where they are. Waiting for ideal conditions is futile.
"Start by thinking about your dream as real," she writes.
Visualization is an essential component of the process. "Picture yourself already living your dream," she encourages. In other words, the dream starts in one's mind's eye. Seeing (internally) is believing. Be cautious with whom you share your dream, but to trustworthy friends and fellow dreamers, communicate your vision. "The more you speak and write about your dream, the sooner you'll live it," she advises.
This is a inspiring book on focusing on the things that will enable you to determine your target and hit it. There is much practical advice in this highly recommended book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dreamers - A Take-Action Guide to Move You Forward! 4 Dec 2003
By Dianne M. Daniels - Published on Amazon.com
This book (and it's companion tape set) is a definate treasure. I was fortunate to hear Marcia at a business conference (isn't that a twist - dreams at a business conference!) and was enthralled.
She is positive, uplifting, and really encourages you to examine closely what makes you happy, what you'd really like to accomplish, and how to get out of your own way. Marcia won't beat you up, but she will give you concrete, take-action steps to move you forward from "it would be nice if..." to "I'm making it happen!".
This book was instrumental in helping me decide to move from my IT career of over 19 years into my own business as an Image Coach. I find much more fulfillment in doing this, and it's this book that made it possible. I recommend this to any and everyone who feels that they are meant for something more than what they are doing right now, or who needs to find more fulfillment in what they are doing.
Everyone who reads this book won't necessarily change their life's direction drastically, but this book will definately get you looking inward and gives you the tools to build a much brighter and more welcome future.
Highly recommended, along with the companion web site and if you can get a copy of her tape set, do so...the audio tapes make a great add-on for the book.
