Do you have a dream? I think we all have dreams we wish would come true.  One of my biggest dreams recently came true, as Pamela Otten LLC, Registered Investment Advisor, is now a reality.  This has been one of my dreams for several years.

What are the desires of your heart? Do you even think about them?  Or have you hid them inside yourself, like the hopes and dreams in the stoppered bottle in the picture?  It’s time to bring those dreams out and acknowledge them!

Here’s some steps to help you make your dreams come true:

Write It Down

You have probably heard this before, but it works – you need to write your dreams down. Dreams that are just in your mind are  only wishes.  There is something about the physical act of writing your dreams down that turns them into something more.  Add a time frame to complete your dream, and you’ve got a goal.


Actually, you need to pray through this whole process, but you want to make sure the desires of your heart are coming from the right place.  Ask God if your desires are from Him.  Then listen for the answer, and watch for signs this is what He wants you to do.


Decide what is between you and your dreams. Do you need more education?  Do you need to make some lifestyle changes?  Is there a cost factor holding you back?  Write down all of these things. Praying, and writing down all of the steps, will start to open doors for you to get it done.

If you need help at this point, find yourself a mentor. You may need several mentors, depending on what needs to get done.  Find someone who has already successfully done what you are trying to accomplish.  Invest in yourself to learn what you need to learn to get you to your dream.

Right now I have several mentors, for different aspects of my life and business.  Sandi Krakowski of A Real Change is who I work with for marketing my business on the internet, and assistance with website technology.   I just got back from a wonderful weekend conference with Sandi and 150 other like-minded business owners.  Training like this is priceless.  Do not think you need to figure it all out yourself!

Take Action

Nothing will change in your life until you take actionYou need to have faith, and do the work! In fact, doing the work shows  you have faith in what you are working towards.  This is where most of us have problems.  Life gets in the way, or we experience some failure, and we fall down, instead of being persistent.  Persistence comes from total belief in what you are doing.

Even taking small steps will get you to your goals.  Every day, ask yourself if what you are doing will help make your dreams come true.  Believe in yourself, and step into your God-given destiny.  It’s a great place to be.
