Here Is About A Book I have being reading called “Wake Up And Dream” by Pat Mesiti. If you are a regluar to here then you would have seen a few blog post about my favorite book. Being a book-worm means that I am reading at least two books at the one time….and not normally finishing the books before picking up another one to read.  This Time Was Different.

Wake Up And Dream By Pat Mesiti….

Is one book that is now my very best friend, and one that I was not able to put down until I read the WHOLE book – actually I am going to go back and start again, this time with a hi-lighter!!

Here is a twist to my blog…..I have decided to place a live video here on Woodys House from Youtube… this being my very first time that I am going live with a video, please be kind with your comments (or Maybe be honnest in a kind way !!) 🙂

Chapter Two Of Wake Up and Dream

In Chapter Two Pat Mesiti says “Dreams Change Lives. You’ve read this far yet you might still be thinking: What will a dream do for me? How can it change me?”

Then he goes onto say……. “In a nutshell: dreams will make you. They will create your character, your attitudes. Build you up. Make you a better you – unless you like the you that you are and don’t want a New Improved Version!”……

There is more written in the book, which I highly recommend you get a copy of – Maybe try ebay or a second hand book store!!! Then there is the summary of Chapter 2 which is what I read out loud.

This book has opened up my world…..I am meeting many like-minded people who I would never have been game enough to meet before – believe it all not, I actually am a very shy private person and stepping out of my comfort zone is thanks to this book. Image if I had never read the book, never pushed myself? Imagine not finding my true passion in life and chasing my dream? That is what is happening to too many Men and Women in this very world we live in. We are getting caught up in life and not dreaming.

So I challenge you  –  Step up to your life. Dream your Dream Life. Right down your plan/your goals – tell all those around you what you want. Say it loud, Say it enough, Repeat it to yourself. Watch how the universe will provide for you. Believe in yourself……I have tested out the Universe lately and every single goal I have wanted has come true – the Universe answered my wishes.

You Are So Worthy of so much more from life. Grab your chances with both hands, take on board what you believe and ask for your Dreams to come true.

I will go onto Chapter three shortly, but before I do…..I ask of you – What Are Your Dreams?

Thank You so very much for staying around Woodys House to read my blogs, and share my dreams.

Here’s To Your Dream

Wake Up And Dream Today….

“Wake Up And Dream” by Pat Mesiti….. If you are new to this blog, I wrote a previous blog about the introduction of Wake Up And Dream. I discovered I am a Dreamer and I am so proud of it 🙂

Part One – Chapter One of “Wake Up And Dream”

Part One – Chapter One “You Can Change Your World”…… This chapter starts off with – “I believe the “average” person can change their world. In this book, which is the result of many years of learning and of good and bad experiences in my life, I will challenge you to become a dreamer. And more than that to become an achiever”.

How perfect is that statement? What a brilliant why to start a book off. and to get my interest….I also believe that every single person is born for a reason. We are placed on this world to be the best person we can be. It does not matter what we end up being, what matters is how we apply ourselves.

Growing Up !

When I was growing up my late Grandma had a big influence in my life. She was there for me in so many different ways…..from the physical sense of looking after me when I got home from School, to the emotional sense that when I had an issue I always gave my Grandma a call !!! I still remember her favorite saying “If you are doing a job, no matter how small a task is, give at least 100% to your job, if not give a 110%”…She was a big believer in achieving the best results that was possible by giving all of yourself and making sure the job was done “Just Right” !!! Gosh she was so wonderful with her outlook on life 🙂

Wake Up And Dream Today

Another statement that has touched me from Pat Mesiti Book “Wake Up and Dream” – “It’s not what happens or has happened to us in life that counts. It’s how we respond to what happens that’s important”…..Have you ever thought about that? Have you really thought about how you respond to what is happening in your world????

It really got me thinking…and I have to say “Wake Up and Dream” is the book I am addicted to at the moment with a passion. What is your favorite statement that gets you thinking about how you can be the best of the best that you were born to be?

I will leave you with this thought from the Book “Wake Up And Dream” – “In a nutshell, dreams will make you. They will create your character, your attitudes. Build you up. Make you a better you-unless you like the you that you are and don’t want a New Improved Version!” – So are you satisfied with the status quo, or do you know that you need to improve.

Thanks Pat Mesiti – your book is becoming my new best least it is when I am getting the chance to read it 🙂

You Create Your Own Life.

Law Of Attraction…..What does that really mean. It is a saying that seems to be really popular. Where ever you go, who ever you speak to, the saying is bound to come up in conversation sooner or later.

It is a broad statement, and can be taken many different ways. I am a big believer in “What you put out there you will get back”…..So it does not matter what vibes you are transmitting to the universe. What You Think About Comes About.

The Secret

It is so very true…..I am not sure if you are like me, But when I first watched “The Secret” it actually took me a little while to believe the concept. Maybe I am a slow learner, or maybe it was my up bringing. Whatever the reason is, I was very unsure about “The Secret”. Once I read a few books, and googled the Secret on YouTube I started to see what the message is behind the (messages) scenes of “The Secret”.

I started thinking about little things at first. I guess you could say I was testing the waters – or testing the Universe.  Soon the asking got bigger and better. Soon enough the things that I was asking for came about. It was very spooky when I first started asking, and believing…..Now that I know What You Think About Comes About I am being very careful with my thoughts.

Your Thoughts.

Does that mean I have to “guard” all of my thoughts? Not at all, actually that would be impossible to do because thoughts are going through our brain constantly, even when we are asleep 🙂 What it does mean is that when a “negative” thought (or a thought I do not agree with) pops up into my head, then I stop and change that thought around….

It’s very simple to do. Are you practicing “The Law Of Attraction”? If not why not? Do you need to know how to attract what your heart desires? Let me know what your thoughts are, and then I can answer your ideas in  the next installment of “What You Think About Comes About” here at Woodys house 🙂

Follow Your Dreams, Listen To Your Heart

I have learnt that you really should follow your heart, and follow your dreams – NO MATTER WHAT is happening in life.

Recently (at the end of January 2010) we sold our house at D’aguilar QLD. I was all for it, and now I am wondering WHY?

When we sold I was keen to travel Australia with our five Woody Boys but hubby wanted to stay and rent a house for one more year and then travel. For whatever reasons (he had some really good ones at the time) I agreed and we followed a path of staying put and then traveling Australia next year.

Only today, this very morning it hit me that we are wasting too much time waiting for another six months before traveling. I was out and about when the feeling over came me – we all should Follow Your Own Heart and pursue goals. So upon returning to home I got on-line and checked out eBay.

The universe provided for us again. There is a bus/motorhome that is almost big enough for our family and I placed a bid. I have never felt so very nervous in all of my life. My hand was shaking, I was sweating all over and then I pressed “Bid”. I did it!!! I put a bid on a bus in NSW. I have my fingers crossed….then I had to tell Hubby what I had done 🙂

He was shocked to say the least, but after listening to my view points and understanding where I was coming from he knew what I had done was right for us. I know like I know like I know I am Following My Heart. I want to travel with my five Woody Boys…..I want to show them Australia before they spread their wings and they are gone. Time is far too short, and I am not going to waste another moment in life waiting for the perfect moment.

I am actually a “take action” kind of person. Hubby likes to sit, think, and then think some more before deciding what is the right way to go about doing things. NOT ME….I believe in things being done yesterday.

Which I suppose is a really good combination to have in a marriage – because I sometimes jump in with both feet, while he steps in and lets me know when to pull out at least one foot!!

Do You Follow Your Heart?

I am not sure if I will win this bid that I have placed on the motorhome – actually it does not concern me if for some reason I am not the winner. I now know what I want from life, and I know that if this bus is not for us – then another bus will be around the corner any time soon. I have “put it out” there that I want to travel, in a bus big enough for all of us – so that is what the universe will provide.

What is Your Dream?

Share your story here…..would love to know how many others are Following Their Own Hearts and chasing their goals/dreams.

Thanks for stopping on by here at Woodys House. Will keep you updated on how I go….maybe tonight I will be celebrating with drinks at our local Pub (mind you I am not a big drinker so it will be orange juice!!) or maybe David will be celebrating because we were out bid!!!!

Today’s Classroom Task

Today in Class we were asked to write out five things that we liked about ourself, and one thing we liked about someone in our class.

How hard was that task? VERY difficult – and not just for myself. You should have heard the groans, the grunts and the eyes rolling that went on after our teacher asked the question 🙂

I was finding it very difficult to answer five points that I liked about myself. If the teacher had asked me to write five things about someone from class that I admired, I could have easily filled it out in seconds!! It actually got the teacher mad that we all had trouble filling it out. She was sad, sad that we had to think hard about what we liked (or loved) about ourselves.

SO it got my brain ticking over. How would you go if you were given the Classroom Task of writing five things that your REALLY liked about yourself..or even loved about yourself. And be honest. Could you put pen to paper and come up with five?

I challenge you here and now…..get thinking. Get your fingers typing and come up with five things that you like about yourself.

Here is a sneak preview on my list….

  1. I like my smile
  2. I like my caring attitude
  3. I like how I listen to my friends and take the time to listen
  4. I like to give hugs
  5. And being a Mum

What could you say that you really like about yourself? Come on, give it a try to see what you come up with…..

Looking forward to reading your comments
