How To Bring Your Dreams to Life This Year

I wanted to start this new year with a post about bringing your dreams to life.

I remember my mentor telling me sometime back, about how she sketches her dreams into reality and how I should give it a go.

Since then I have been sketching out my wishes and visions and I am amazed at how they come into being.

When I was a little girl (say about 7 years old) living in West Africa, I used to have a best mate whom I used to play this game of telling stories through pictures. Using pencils we’ll sketch out the whole sequence of a story like this…

I’ll sketch out a house that was built by the river, she’ll sketch that it had a mummy and a daddy and four children (illustrated as stick people), I’d then continue the story with say… It had lots of trees where the wicked witch lived! And the story would go on and on (whilst we totally ignored our teacher I might add)

Even at that early age, the instinctive nature of using story telling and our imagination was already instilled in us. This natural skills of using our imagination, telling stories and manifesting our heart desires is part of natural abilities.

So if you don’t already do this, I encourage you to start the new year by buying the most lovely note pad you can find (that one that gives you a lovely feeling each time you look at it), get a pencil to go with it (I love using pencils as you can easily scrub out and change your story).

Start to scribble down your heart desires, visions and hopes in pictures. You’d be amazed at how accelerated your dreams come to life!

Wishing you a very happy 2014.

PS: Here’s a picture of my notepad along with what I love to sip (hot chocolate) while I sketch away (most times in my favourite café).

Women in Business – Why Staying in Flow is Essential for Success

Folake Bee - Being in flow for women in businessSuccess in business (for me) is about being you, being in flow with the universe, serving others with one’s passion and getting paid for it abundantly.

Why else would you sacrifice the security of having someone else pay you on a monthly basis, for the insecurity that running your own business can occasionally bring?

However, one of the issues I dealt with for a long time was how to follow my calling, stay in flow and make a living from that calling?

I was recently out with my girlfriends in London for a night out.

I watched a group of dancers on the dance floor do their thing. Now you are thinking, what does dance have to do with business? Well here are three things that these amazing dancers show us about ‘being in flow’ that we can learn from.

You are in tune
There was something amazing about the way these dancers were synchronised in their movement, even when they were all doing their different styles. I think this is the same in business, when you are in flow, it’s easy to stay on top of your game, in tune with leading trends, changes in the market, and also importantly your customer needs.

You stand out
So there was this one dancer, even when he was not taking centre stage, all eyes were on him. There was just a natural brilliance radiating from his moves. Wherever he was, he was so good he took centre stage. Could it be that when you do what you love doing, its so easy to stand out of the crowd, as things feel seamless and therefore being brilliant comes easy?

You become attractive
It’s simple, you glow with positive energy and positivity flows your way. On this path, you become a master in manifesting the things you want with ease.

So here are 3 tips on how I find and stay in flow

1. Meditate daily to help you to reconnect with your inner self, and help you listen to your intuition. This is the first step in the process.

2. Remember to live from the present moment. This has really made the most impact on my way to where I want to be. Those who know me will know that I am usually a stickler for action plans, strategies and forward planning – as a result of my project management background. However these days, I have my intention, live in the moment and make the most of the present moment by being more productive at that moment.

3. Slow your pace, rushing, busy-busy does not always equate results. In fact in my case, it’s the opposite. I work less (but in a more productive manner) and the business decided to bring in more clients, more income and everything on my wish list! Who’d known?!

As usual, I would love for you to share how you stay in flow and the impact it has in your business below.

Don’t forget to share this post – if you like it.
