My daughter and I were looking at million dollar homes on-line the other night. She had found a house she really liked and wanted me to see it. This house was only $499,000. We went through all the rooms in the picture tour and talked about what she liked about each room, and what she would change.
So then we went to look at some of the million dollar homes. We honestly didn’t find anything either one of us liked in the upper priced homes. I found that interesting.
I told her to print out the pictures and put them on her dream board.
Now as a parent, you would probably be tempted to say things like –
“Well you better get a really good job to afford something like that.” or
“You’ll never be able to afford something like that.” or
“Why do you want something like that? You don’t need…”
Parents have a really bad habit of being dream killers.
She knows darned well that she has to have a really good job to afford something like that. And that is her intention. I didn’t need to point that out.
They say that a big part of reaching your goals is to be able to visualize having it.
We enjoyed the experience of virtually walking through the rooms and discussing what she like and what she would change. Other than the furnishings, there wasn’t much about this house that she would change. We both agreed that the island in the kitchen was ugly and needed to be changed. But the rest of the house seemed to really suit her. I have to say, she has pretty good taste.
Yes, she’s only 18 and just starting college. But this experience gave her a clear vision of the house she would like to have. It is stored in her sub-conscious mind.
I’m really proud of the fact that not only did I not make one negative comment about why she may not be able to attain it, I didn’t even think it. We just enjoyed the experience.
I think we all need to do some no holds barred dreaming once in a while.
Do you have a dream board, (or a vision board)? I have sort of a dream pile. The pictures are not on a board, but I have them. It gives me the strength to go on.
And if the Law of Attraction really exists, she’s well on her way to having that house.
Do some dreaming this weekend without a single thought about why you can’t have it. It’s fun. And who knows – you really might get it.
