    PS Thank you – saw you speak at convention in 2010 and you truly did make a difference in helping me take a step forward to changing my life!!

  4. Thank you Marcia I love your vids!
    When I was 30 I had a dream of touring Europe
    by age 40. I came true when I toured Europe
    at age 38 & released a new CD that year!

    I’m 55 & my new crazy dream is to have
    5 Grammy’s or the equivalent by age 60~
    I know that sounds nuts ~ I have already taken
    steps in that direction with tapping the Hollywood
    market via playing for the the Expo twice & making connections
    more each time…hope I can invite you to
    the red carpet in 5 years!!! Love ya!!! Susan

  5. my dream is to move to Los Angeles and show my art work in a leading gallery in LA or NYC.

    Hey Marcia and all you other dreamers!
    Thanks for all of your inspiration. It really does make a difference! I’m really psyched because I’m launching a music-based empowerment seminar for pre-teen and teenage girls called “MOTIV8: 8 Ways To ROCK Your Own World”! I’m a professional songwriter and although I’ve done programs for really young kids, this is my first foray into the exciting world of teenage girls (wish me luck!!). I just booked my first gig at my local library – I’m thrilled and petrified at the same time! I know this is how I was meant to serve — music and kids are my life (especially my own kids!) and I hope they’re inspired by seeing me go for my next big dream! Lots of obstacles to overcome but I know I’m making it happen!
    Have a great day!
    P.S. Marcia: you know my cousin Eric Haft — he was lucky enough to win a scholarship to one of your seminars (I believe last year) and it was videotaped ; I almost fell off my chair while watching it online because I had no idea he was in the audience! He speaks VERY highly of you which is why I’m a part of your million dream campaign! Thank you again!

      I have a company Would you like to consider composing a song for me I posted a dream on Facebook last week that I want to become a public speaker transforming people’s health and start a nonprofit organization to get education into the school districts to deal with childhood obesity.

    Good deal Marcia!!!!

  8. I’m 51, have always had a dream of traveling
    And helping people while traveling, something like doctors without borders
    But I have no real vision of how it would work.
    I’m now trying to focus on how it would look like….

    I am working to create a successful workshop with my potential partner in the film business, for creative people who want to make a living pursuing their artistic vision.

    I am also designing a workshop for conscious couples, utilizing all the expressive arts therapeutic modalities I have learned over the years.

  10. Thank you, Marcia, for a great post, and I LOVE your jacket! Sharing my dreams with others has done wonders for me, which is why I love being active in this campaign and have posted 10 dreams. It’s was a dream of mine to own a motorcycle. Talking to people who rode, hearing their enthusiasm and seeing it as a reality for others made it seem more possible for me. At the age of 51, I got my first bike (900cc) and love riding. Sharing it with people who will support me, not talk me out of my dreams, is really important, which is why the groups on this site are so helpful.

    I dream of leading walking and lifestyle tours in South America to share the incredible vibrancy, freedoms and sense of hope and enthusiasm for the future that we had here in North America in ht 70’s and 80′. I have to find a way to liquidate our rental property portfolio in a flat market and know I must “raise my vibration” to accomplish that so I can move fully into my dream. I need some glue remover!!

    It’s true Marcia- I’ve even have a vision board for my dreams. For the past few years, I began to inquire with contractors and people who have built homes about the building process. I began to tell people that I would soon build a new home and then everyone became so supportive and wanted to help me get it done. Now, I’m in the process of building and I haven’t secured a construction loan yet. For some reason, the banks aren’t that keen on dreams. Lol. Everytime I talk about my new dreams, especially the big one I have posted I almost cry. I want it so bad and really look forward to honing it up so it makes sense to people who will be willing to support me. Thank you for this lifechanging opportunity to up my game and realize my life’s purpose.

  13. How exciting to share this story because yes, I shared a big dream with someone that I didn’t even know in person, we met through Facebook and she became a rock and mentor to me. I told her of my dream to open my own coffee shop and for it to be a place where people would come and share their dreams, follow their dreams, read the inspirational quotes on the Get Inspired wall and have one affect and inspired them in a way they never knew was possible. I told her about my dream in February of 2010 and that I wanted to open it by Sept 2010 – with her support, belief in me and my belief that anything is possible if I want it bad enough, I opened The Coffee Grove on Sept. 15, 2010 – Hooray! And I actually just sold it and am about to accomplish my greatest dream and adventure of my life – Hooray!

  14. I took a leap and opened my own healing center call Journey Within in Denver, CO. I am very fortunate to have a wonderful group people who support my dream(s) to create a safe place for people to change their lives with ease and grace through meditation, energy healings, Angel messages and intuitive readings/healings.

    • I have friends in Denver who would be interested in your healing center. I’ll send them your way.

  15. This is my dream:
    “One million of SELF-CONFINDENT & HAPPY KIDS (and families) around the world.” I want to put The Three Powers book into the hands of every child all over the world and teach them the magic to love themselves and how to use their own powers to make good friends and be happy.

    And YES, I know I AM a BEST SELLING author (soon)…

    • I am interested in learning more about your three powers books. Do you have a website? Thanks

  16. My Dream is to launch Mary Hartmann Designs to the entire World! I am called to bring my Spiritual designs with a message to the world. My designs are inspired to Help bring Love, Healing, Personal Develpment and Transformation to all those who wear my inspirational Jewlery-Sacred Art.

    My dream is to have a job paying 600$ daily in Melbourne.

  18. When I joined a Toastmaster Club, I shared my speaking dream. I want businesses that help, develop, and serve others to follow their dream, vision. I need to be more active, and more transparent to my club members. I never told a lot of people because they might laugh, or the common quote, oh you will never do that. Your black, stick to you job. Just breaking that negative voice. I am trying to get out of my own way. Thank you for your work. It has really inspired me to do more in my life. Thank you again, and GOD Bless.

    To support parents in the difficult role of parenting.

  22. I have shared my dream with my maid,,(who comes in to do the daily cooking) hoping she will help me in my venture.

  23. More than all my desires to work for the necessary global change as philosopher writer artist healer taichi-trainer speaker I want to come together with the one and only I can share my life and work.

  24. The power of sharing a dream – as a little girl pretending to act & be on stage speaking to others, changing the world. Unwittingly I took many steps in this direction, eventually giving up the dream until last year. I announced to my close circle that I want to learn to be a better speaker & went to Marica’s ‘Inspiring Speaker Workshop’. It hasn’t stopped since then. Journaling my dreams, fearfully sharing them when I speak and now posting really big dreams has opened a floodgate. Planning a live event and the entire message of ‘5 Life Changing Challenges’ and sharing it with ‘Teatime Stories’ is happening! Globally! And a new website: http// All because I’m sharing – it changes dreams into action.

    I want to become a Life Guide, Spiritual Teacher and Healer and I will!!!!

    My biggest challenge right now is that I have 3 seminars I would like to attend to get to my Dream and 3 others to heal and grow myself but my actual money issues keep me off. I do not want to waste more time to spend in a normal job which I do not even like, I want to get started as I am ready and open to serve and change the world. Then realitiy kicks in and bills and expenses are hardly paid and the job is coming to an end and I would need even to move country to supply me with a job which pays my bills. Doing this brings me more and more away from my Dream.
    I so think, believe and have a deep feeling that there must be other possiblities out there to achieve my dream and follow my passion.

  26. My dream is To start my business and to be able to work from home, and be eventually earning a six figure income.

  31. My dream is to create a Non-profit, designed to help battered women’s shelters. I believe that setting upa kiosk in the form of 10 to 15 computers in the shelters and teaching them how to become affiliate marketers online that it would give them hope and teach them the skills that would allow them to become self sufficient and possibly even business owners. As a speaker and author I expect to accomplish this dream within a 12 to 18 month window.Started Jan,1st 2012.

Would love to hear from educators, nutritionist, or parents who might want to get involved in my dream.

  33. Thank you for dream university! I accomplished one of my hugest dreams at the age of 52 in 2004 when I opened a music school! However going on the web site for dream university found 10 more dreams! My biggest now is to see that string programs are accessible to all children in my geographic area. So many children never get the opportunity to play string instruments because they are no longer a part of a typical music program. For me getting an opportunity in a public school to play a violin at a low cost changed my life and opened my eyes to the pittance of an education that includes music and culture.

    Own my own business being a motivational speaker

  44. A little depress that things are not going my way. Been meditating and tapping. But all I am getting now is attacks & negativity. Want to just go away and hide. But being stubborn, I am continuing to take the abuse from people I work with. Don’t do well with posting-busy schedule. Hoping this process will help get out of the rut. I would anything a try once. Trying to find the help. Hope this is it.

    • Oh my God, just read my posting. How bad is that. I do have dreams. I love learning and want to move forward with my CPA degree. Looking forward to having financial freedom. At 55 looking for spiritual peace. I’m constantly on the go with no rest. Need not to take live so serious. So another one of my dreams is to learn to relax, enjoy life, and be happy.

  56. Hi Marcia,
    I’ve been sharing a dream for over 10 years. Last spring I met a woman who was able to fill in the missing pieces for me. I would never have been introduced to her if another friend had not known both my desires and my challenges. Upon meeting this woman, she told us both we had to meet. We are now almost a full year into a partnership to bring my “Thrive With Autism” workshop series public. She covers the logistical end (which I am off-the-charts challenged by), and I cover the materials, hand-outs, and presentations. I feel so blessed.
