"...What does your dream for the future look like? What are some of the elements that make up your dream and help give it shape and form? Athletes have discovered that, after their natural talent, having a vision of their success is as important as their physical training regime. 1988 Winter Olympics downhill ski champion Alberto Tomba made headlines for his activities off the hill as well as on. Many questioned how someone as undisciplined as he appeared to be could win so many medals. The ..."

"...Gail MacIndoe believes all things are created twice; first there is the mental vision and then the physical creation. If you think about what you want to achieve and visualise it, and then you write it down, you will have created the goal twice. When the goal is achieved, you will have created it three times. ..."

" an informal way, collaborating with other likeminded professionals to provide workshops and services. I believe in the principle of abundance - the more we share the more there is for everyone.
