Making Your Dreams Come True! - Wednesday 10:00 pm EST and 7:00 pm PST

Broadcast Number 3 (Wednesday December 6, 2006)
In tonight’s program we are going to discuss:

  1. Dream Stealers and Dream Supporters.
  2. We are going to take the opportunity to reflect upon another great dreamer, President John Fitzgerald Kennedy.
  3. We will end the program with an inspirational thought that you can carry with you throughout the coming week.

Dream Stealers or Dream Supporters

Strategy: Who are You Hanging Out with at the Intersection of Your Life?

We want you to remember that the intersection of your life is not a place, it is not a where. It is a WHO! And that Who is YOU! You are the common denominator in your life. Other people come and go at your conscious or unconscious invitation. Each person’s goal is to wake up to what is going on in one’s life—to become alert and discerning individuals. That is why we are giving you this list. It is in no way, complete and exhaustive. It is merely a stepping stone, a springboard to get you thinking about the people and relationships you have in your life. SO…………………….

Who are you hanging out with Dream Stealers or Dream Supporters?

The characteristics of a Dream Stealer

  1. They lack vision
  2. Unable to act beyond their personal limitations and comfort zone.
  3. They are fearful
  4. They view the world as a malevolent place
  5. They are protective
  6. They are contracted thinkers
  7. Their relationships are exclusive
  8. They foster separation and segregation from one another
  9. They keep the status quo
  10. They usually conform to the cultural norm (what ever society says that is that they believe in and that is as far as they will go)
  11. They blame others so they don’t have to take responsibility, be accountable and change their lives.
  12. They are usually satisfied with living someone else’s dream
  13. They discourage others because they feel threatened and small when other people get ahead.
  14. They usually lack commitment and dedication to fulfill their dream
  15. Often dream stealers believe that they do not deserve a dream
  16. Often they are into instant gratification and distractions so that they don’t have to take action on their dream.
  17. Dream stealers are quick to point out ‘Been there, Done that, did’nt work out so why bother? Why should you bother. If it did not work for me, it will never work for you.
  18. They are jealous of other and do not want anyone to get ahead.
  19. The final thing about dream stealers is that they are not willing to invest the time, energy, effort and money to see their dreams come. Not willing to experience some of the growth pains that makes all dreams come true.

The characteristics of a Dream Supporter

  1. The characteristics of a Dream Supporter
  2. They believe the world is a benevolent place
  3. They are creative
  4. They are value driven visionaries
  5. They are action oriented
  6. They are generous with their life’s achievements and belonging and ideas
  7. They are inclusive in their relationships
  8. They believe in the unified field of the whole, that is that if you harm another being, it ripples out into the whole world and back to you. So when I hurt another, I am really helping myself. When I help others, I am helping myself
  9. They share and rejoice in other’s achievements and successes
  10. They share their dream openly and are willing to subject their dream to the critique of others.
  11. They willingly take advice and consider others’ opinions to make their dream a reality.
  12. They exercise a high degree of trust and benevolent skepticism
  13. They hang out with dream supporters and other dreamers
  14. They dream with you, plan for you, act with you and evaluate the dream with you and then re-launch the dreams
  15. They live and create their dreams in the company of others
  16. The discern the difference between a childhood fantasy and a real dream.
  17. They are able to move a dream from potential (potential is a dream at rest) to probability (to making it happen – a one in four chance; a two in four chance; a three in four chance; to a four in four chance.

Example

Recall last week the example of the mother with her two children who have C.P. and her dream for them. Also recall the letter from the teacher who complained about how her peers belittled the children with special needs.

With this information, who would you choose to hang out at the intersection of your life? The mother or the teachers?

Relate to the 1% solution. The 1% that you may need to change is the people you are hanging out with at the intersection of your life. This may be the key or one of the keys to you making your dream come true.

Last week you will recall that we provided you with two strategies for the 1% Solution.

The 1% Solution Power Question and the answer

The Declarative Sentence.

1. What is the one thing that I can change today to make the experience of my life better or different?

2. The answer: The one thing that I do today to change the experience of my life is _________ (this may someone you are hanging out with).

Remember to ask the question and give the response daily.

Tonight's Inspirational Dreamer
President Kennedy - Inaugural Address, January 20, 1961.

Read President Kennedy's Inspiring challenge to the American people and the people of the world; be inspired and aspire to dream great dreams of truth, justice, fairness, liberty, and freedom for all people.

picture of President Kennedy

Vice President Johnson, Mr. Speaker, Mr. Chief Justice, President Eisenhower, Vice President Nixon, President Truman, reverend clergy, fellow citizens, we observe today not a victory of party, but a celebration of freedom—symbolizing an end, as well as a beginning—signifying renewal, as well as change. For I have sworn before you and Almighty God the same solemn oath our forebears prescribed nearly a century and three quarters ago.

The world is very different now. For man holds in his mortal hands the power to abolish all forms of human poverty and all forms of human life. And yet the same revolutionary beliefs for which our forebears fought are still at issue around the globe—the belief that the rights of man come not from the generosity of the state, but from the hand of God.

We dare not forget today that we are the heirs of that first revolution. Let the word go forth from this time and place, to friend and foe alike, that the torch has been passed to a new generation of Americans—born in this century, tempered by war, disciplined by a hard and bitter peace, proud of our ancient heritage—and unwilling to witness or permit the slow undoing of those human rights to which this Nation has always been committed, and to which we are committed today at home and around the world.

Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe, in order to assure the survival and the success of liberty.

This much we pledge—and more.

To those old allies whose cultural and spiritual origins we share, we pledge the loyalty of faithful friends. United, there is little we cannot do in a host of cooperative ventures. Divided, there is little we can do—for we dare not meet a powerful challenge at odds and split asunder.

To those new States whom we welcome to the ranks of the free, we pledge our word that one form of colonial control shall not have passed away merely to be replaced by a far more iron tyranny. We shall not always expect to find them supporting our view. But we shall always hope to find them strongly supporting their own freedom—and to remember that, in the past, those who foolishly sought power by riding the back of the tiger ended up inside.

To those peoples in the huts and villages across the globe struggling to break the bonds of mass misery, we pledge our best efforts to help them help themselves, for whatever period is required—not because the Communists may be doing it, not because we seek their votes, but because it is right. If a free society cannot help the many who are poor, it cannot save the few who are rich.

To our sister republics south of our border, we offer a special pledge—to convert our good words into good deeds—in a new alliance for progress—to assist free men and free governments in casting off the chains of poverty. But this peaceful revolution of hope cannot become the prey of hostile powers. Let all our neighbors know that we shall join with them to oppose aggression or subversion anywhere in the Americas. And let every other power know that this Hemisphere intends to remain the master of its own house.

To that world assembly of sovereign states, the United Nations, our last best hope in an age where the instruments of war have far outpaced the instruments of peace, we renew our pledge of support—to prevent it from becoming merely a forum for invective—to strengthen its shield of the new and the weak—and to enlarge the area in which its writ may run.

Finally, to those nations who would make themselves our adversary, we offer not a pledge but a request: that both sides begin anew the quest for peace, before the dark powers of destruction unleashed by science engulf all humanity in planned or accidental self-destruction.

We dare not tempt them with weakness. For only when our arms are sufficient beyond doubt can we be certain beyond doubt that they will never be employed.

But neither can two great and powerful groups of nations take comfort from our present course—both sides overburdened by the cost of modern weapons, both rightly alarmed by the steady spread of the deadly atom, yet both racing to alter that uncertain balance of terror that stays the hand of mankind's final war.

So let us begin anew—remembering on both sides that civility is not a sign of weakness, and sincerity is always subject to proof. Let us never negotiate out of fear. But let us never fear to negotiate.

Let both sides explore what problems unite us instead of belaboring those problems which divide us.

Let both sides, for the first time, formulate serious and precise proposals for the inspection and control of arms—and bring the absolute power to destroy other nations under the absolute control of all nations.

Let both sides seek to invoke the wonders of science instead of its terrors. Together let us explore the stars, conquer the deserts, eradicate disease, tap the ocean depths, and encourage the arts and commerce.

Let both sides unite to heed in all corners of the earth the command of Isaiah—to "undo the heavy burdens ... and to let the oppressed go free."

And if a beachhead of cooperation may push back the jungle of suspicion, let both sides join in creating a new endeavor, not a new balance of power, but a new world of law, where the strong are just and the weak secure and the peace preserved.

All this will not be finished in the first 100 days. Nor will it be finished in the first 1,000 days, nor in the life of this Administration, nor even perhaps in our lifetime on this planet. But let us begin.

In your hands, my fellow citizens, more than in mine, will rest the final success or failure of our course. Since this country was founded, each generation of Americans has been summoned to give testimony to its national loyalty. The graves of young Americans who answered the call to service surround the globe.

Now the trumpet summons us again—not as a call to bear arms, though arms we need; not as a call to battle, though embattled we are—but a call to bear the burden of a long twilight struggle, year in and year out, "rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation"—a struggle against the common enemies of man: tyranny, poverty, disease, and war itself.

Can we forge against these enemies a grand and global alliance, North and South, East and West, that can assure a more fruitful life for all mankind? Will you join in that historic effort?

In the long history of the world, only a few generations have been granted the role of defending freedom in its hour of maximum danger. I do not shrink from this responsibility—I welcome it. I do not believe that any of us would exchange places with any other people or any other generation. The energy, the faith, the devotion which we bring to this endeavor will light our country and all who serve it—and the glow from that fire can truly light the world.

And so, my fellow Americans: ask not what your country can do for you—ask what you can do for your country.

My fellow citizens of the world: ask not what America will do for you, but what together we can do for the freedom of man.


Finally, whether you are citizens of America or citizens of the world, ask of us the same high standards of strength and sacrifice which we ask of you. With a good conscience our only sure reward, with history the final judge of our deeds, let us go forth to lead the land we love, asking His blessing and His help, but knowing that here on earth God's work must truly be our own.

Inspirational Thought

"...Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.
Your playing small doesn't serve the world.
There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine, as children do.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we're liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."

From 'A Return To Love' (1992) by Marianne Williamson
