Make Your Dream House a Reality

THE DREAM HOUSE

For years I would drive by houses or see photos in magazines of fantastically rich-looking homes and rather subconsciously think, "oh I'll never live in a house like that."

Looking for pictures of your dream home in magazines, imagining the day one will be yours may sound like an unrealistic exercise even for those who consider themselves dreamers.

So let me share a story with you by John Assaraf which was featured in "The Secret" by Rhonda Byrne.

John created something he calls a Vision Board upon which he would place pictures of what he wanted and hoped to acquire one day. At one point in his life he packed up all of his home belongings and and put them into storage. After moving three different times within a five year period, he bought a home and remodeled it. A year later when it was completed, he brought his things out of storage which had been used in the home from five years earlier.

As boxes which had been sealed for five years began coming out into view, his five year old son saw one that said "Vision Boards." He wanted to know what it was and so Mr. Assaraf decided to show him rather than try and explain it on his level. He opened it and picked up one Vision Board with a picture of a house. It was a home he'd picked out five years earlier as a dreamy residence he wanted to visualize himself having. It hit him, and hit him hard, when he realized that he was not only living in a house LIKE it, but he had actually bought the house in the picture and was living in that very one. He explains "I looked at that house and I started to cry, because I was just blown away."

So taking the time to cut out some magazine pictures may be more valuable of an exercise than you may have thought. You too might wake up one day to find you are living in your dream house!
