Life Cycle of a Dream + Free Download
Every dream has its own unique life cycle with its own unique obstacles but these elements are universal for every dream/idea/vision that takes flight.
Some dreams are realized in a day or a week or a month. Others take a lifetime to achieve.
I've had the idea to create an online copywriting course for over a year. I spent months stuck in stage 2, dreaming about everything it *could* be. I've spent months slowly bringing it to life. Keeping everything close to my chest, nurturing all the details quietly to myself.
It doesn't follow the trend for self-paced online courses - I didn't want it to. It includes an Inspiration Library because self-care is sanity. It's as vital to our businesses as a consistent flow of clients.
Still, it felt daring to include an Inspiration Library in a copywriting course. I mean, who does that? What kind of copywriting course includes prayers, affirmations and meditations? Although I talk for days about my beliefs because I know that helps my clients choose ME, I don't talk openly much about my spirituality or that I practice Reiki. That's been a transition over the last few weeks but one that was long overdue. The self-doubt in stage 6 was real.
But the prayers, affirmations, mantras, meditations are as much a part of my life as my business. It's how I write. It's how I fill up my inspiration, continue to Wonder and remind myself to balance fierce intelligence and grit with heart-led intuition and grace.
It's what sustains me during the life cycle of my dreams.
Here's one of the meditations included in the course. It's called Nurture Your Dreams. You can download it for free here.
