Big dreams for your life? Me too.
If you're anything like me, you love to dream about your outrageous goals for the future and put together awesome dream boards like this...
Does your life look like your dream board yet?
Ummm, I didn't think so! (Mine isn't quite there yet either). And if it does, it's time for a new dream board girlfriend!
Well, there's a way to attract your ideal life without winning the lottery. Of course, we'd all love the big unexpected leaps in income, but most of the time it happens gradually over time, as we ourselves get better at manifesting and increasing our capacity for success.
The trick is increasing your minimum standards. You don't need to psyche yourself up for a big leap, it's much easier to go incrementally - and trust me, it still works!
Let's take travel for example
Say you always travel the cheapest ticket you can find. Sometimes you get a good seat but you've spent many trips by the smelly toilet seat or sitting next to someone slightly undesirable. The extra queues, the unexpected costs of checking luggage or having to purchase food all add up to an aggravating experience.
But it's highly unlikely that one day you'll splash out and spend up to 4 times more to fly First Class or charter your own private jet, as much as you dream about it.
Why BIG leaps rarely happen
Because deep down, you don't think of yourself as "that sort of person" and the action of paying a lot more than you're used to will start bumping up against all sorts of unconscious thoughts and beliefs you have about your self worth.
One time though, you might decide you've had enough and you pay a little bit extra to fly premium economy. You realise that the extra leg room or any other little perk is worth it. Maybe you get more sleep and experience less jet lag, which might affect your business or job. You feel confident and good about yourself.
That confidence might even spill over into something else - you have the guts to approach someone for your dream job or to ask for more money in your career.
Now your minimum standard is premium economy.
You start to think of yourself in a different way, and when you upgrade your standards, the Universe meets you half way and more often than not, you attract the money to pay for it. That always happens for me - but the trick is - you have to have faith and not wait for the money to come first.
When that level becomes comfortable again, you'll upgrade to the next level and the next until you've reached your maximum goal.
Travel is an easy one, so let's take it one step further. Pick an area in your life that causes some aggravation - it could be your hair, closet, car, lounge, TV... anything. However, pick something that's important to you (otherwise it doesn't work) and something that makes you feel less than your ideal self.
In that area of your life, are you living...
- Economy (cattle class)
- Premium Economy
- Business class
- First class
- Beyond (private jet styles)
If you were to upgrade to the very next level, what would that look like for you?
What action are you willing to take (even if it's a tiny one?)
That's it - then move on to something else. The Universe will hear that you're ready for more and look out for the changes it will bring to your life.
Upgrade + Attract

I'm excited to see what upgrades you're committing to and the magic that will result.
See you there,
