Step One Step Two Step Three Step Four Step Five

Step One…See It

Principle #1: You have to see where you’re coming from before you can get where you want to go.

Vision is where everything starts, but it’s not enough to simply create a picture of your desired outcome. We start by creating a clear and honest picture of where you are right now. This, then gives you a benchmark with which to measure your progress. It is your “come from”, your starting point and you will use it as a way to propel yourself forward to creating and achieving your new vision.

When working with clients, I always have them ponder these quotes and others before we move onto the exercises in this step.





"Where there is no vision, the people perish."

- Proverbs 29:18

" If you can dream it, you can do it."

- Walt Disney

" There is a law in psychology that if you form a picture in your mind of what you would like to be, and you keep and hold that picture there long enough, you will soon become exactly as you have been thinking."

- William James

“ The mind is everything;
what you think you become.”

- Buddha

“ Imagination is the eye of the soul.”

- Joseph Joubert



Step Two…Say It

Principle #2: A spoken intention is hope in action – what you say, you will see.

The next important step in realizing what you want is to Say It. "In the beginning was the word" isn't just a biblical phrase, it's the start of all creation.

Nothing is ever accomplished without it being spoken/verbalized.

Our words, whether positive and negative, give us powerful results, so why not put the power in the positive? And, as in step one, we again start by first “saying” where are right now, in order to solidify our “come from”. We then move on to creating powerful words that will pull you forward to your vision.

When working with clients, I always have them ponder these quotes and others before we move onto the exercises in this step.


“Regardless of what language you speak, your intent will manifest through the word. What you dream, what you feel, and what you really are will all be manifested through the word."

- don Miguel Ruiz

“ Never, ever regret or apologize for believing that when one man or one woman decides to risk addressing the world with truth, the world may stop what it is doing and hear. There is too much evidence to the contrary."

- Robert Fulghum

“ It is a well-known fact that one comes finally to believe whatever one repeats to one’s self, whether the statement be true or false.”

- Napoleon Hill



Step Three…Create It

Principle #3: Hoping is helpful, but it’s creating and implementing that turns your dreams into reality.

This step will be the crux to forwarding the action of your first two steps. The creation element of the process is crucial to a successful outcome to your stated intention(s).

It’s where everything is finally quantified, plans and intentions are laid out and road maps are created. We also work with powerful “Creation aids”.

Creation aids:








“First say to yourself what you would be; and then do what you have to do.”

- 1st century A.D. freed slave and philosopher, Epictetus

“Honor the man or woman that you are. Take the risk to express your dream. Taking action is about living full and expressing what you are.”

- Author, don Miguel Ruiz

“ The heart does not charge for consultations, conversations, creative brainstorming sessions or carrying a dream from conception to delivery, no matter how long it takes. From the action stems the dream again and this interdependence produces the highest form of living.”

- Author, Sarah Ban Breathnach


Step Four…Believe It

Principle #4: You can’t get what you deserve, until you “get” that you deserve.

This is again another important step, because it's not the old skepticism, "I'll believe it when I see it.", which is valid. It’s the truism coined by Ernest Holmes, who created the Science of Mind Church, "I'll see it when I believe it".

You will never receive anything you ask for if you first don’t believe it is possible to do so.

However, before we can create new beliefs, we have to look at the limiting beliefs that have brought us to where we are today. Then we need to address those thoughts that inevitably arise once we decide to change the course of our lives. You know, the voices in our head that say: “You, you can’t do that! Who do you think you are, anyway?”

When working with clients, I always have them ponder these quotes and others before we move onto the exercises in this step.







“The greatest secret to living a happy, fulfilled life is the realization that everything is created in our minds before it manifests itself in the outer world. We must believe it before we can see it.”

- Sarah Ban Breathnach

“ If you want to change an external part of your life, then you are first required to change the internal beliefs that hold these patterns in place. If you want others to respond to you or your work in different ways and with more appreciation, then examine your expectations for your work and your efforts. When you believe in yourself, chances are others will find your worth also.”

- Meredith Young-Sowers

“ Create the highest, grandest vision possible for your life because you become what you believe.”

- Oprah Winfrey

" So, I tell you, whatsoever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours."

- Mark 11:24


Step Five…Receive It

Principle #5: In order to receive something, you have to create space for it.

The universe always rushes into fill a void, it's the law of nature. So, now’s the time to look at what you need to leave behind, to make room for the new.

Just as when you are buying a new couch, you have to get rid of the old one, you must create room for the new good to come to you.

According to Webster, “receive”, v - to take (i.e. something given or sent): to get; to take into the mind; to meet with: encounter; to greet: welcome”. And, “receiver, n – one that receives; an apparatus, as a part of a radio, television or telephone that receives electrical signals and changes them into perceptible forms.”.

How can you become a human receiver of all the good you envision and plan to receive?

"Nothing happens until something moves."

-Albert Einstein

Then, before you move on to the exercises, ponder these quotes to the right.



“The key to life is to build in the mental equivalents of what you want and to expunge the equivalents of what you do not. You do it by thinking quietly, constantly and persistently of the kind of things you want.”

- Emmet Fox

“ What you desire, you will see. Such is the real law of cause and effect as it operates in the world.”

- A Course In Miracles

" Whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve."

- Napoleon Hill

“Before success comes in any man’s life, he is sure to meet with much temporary defeat, and, perhaps, some failure. When defeat overtakes a man, the easiest and most logical thing to do is to quit. That is exactly what the majority of men do. More than five hundred of the most successful men this country has ever known told the author their greatest success came just one step beyond the point at which defeat had overtaken them.”

- Napoleon Hill

" Nothing ever built arose to touch the skies unless someone dreamed that it should, someone believed that it could, and someone willed that it must."

- Charles Kettering

“ If not now, when?"

- The Talmud
