Most people think of a dream as something you do while you sleep, or some kind of unattainable goal that could never really materialize. Here at The Whatcom Dream we define dreams as aspirations, goals, and hopes that you would like to attain for yourself and/or your family. We aren’t talking about “puffy clouds in the sky” dreams, we are talking about practical, everyday dreams that bring stability and security to your life. Almost any dream, whether it be getting a degree, starting a business, or purchasing a home, involves finances. That’s why it’s imperative that you build a strong financial foundation for yourself. The current economic climate makes it even more important, indeed.
Part of the reason people don’t reach their dreams is the limiting beliefs they have developed over time. Your beliefs are what you hold to be true. In our course, we look at where our money beliefs originally came from, usually formed in early life, and we examine those beliefs to see if they are really working. This self awareness can unleash dreams you thought you’d never see come true in your life. The Whatcom Dream classes are effective in helping people move from a mind set of “Why me?” to “Why NOT me?”
Knowing what local resources are available to help you reach your dreams is an important element too. We bring you this information through guest speakers so you can learn about the creative programs operating in Whatcom County that can help you succeed. So, think about what dreams you would like to achieve, and think about why. Visualize yourself living your dream. Come to a class and articulate your dream to others and learn how to deal with the obstacles that stand in your way. Live your dream by making deliberate choices, not by just responding to whatever life throws at you. We are here to help you succeed!
