The journey towards the 3rd annual World Dream Day has finally begun! This is the time of the year once again to take the time to focus on a dream, a goal, a desire and think of actions you could take to make this dream real. All these will be happening on Dreambook Project’s World Dream Day Philippines, on September 27, 2014 (Saturday) from 1PM to 5pm, in PowerBooks Greenbelt, Makati City. Mark this day on your calendar as I invite you to take the Dream Day Challenge! 🙂

The Dream Day Challenge

“All it takes is one conversation to change your life.”

It’s been said that we are more likely to accomplish our goals when we first visualize them and write them down. On Dream Day, participants are encouraged to do both. No more wondering “what if?” It is important to focus on ONE action you can take to move your life, your family, your business, and/or your community forward. Declare your commitment to creating the world of your dreams!

What is Dream Day all about?

Do you frequently tell yourself that you’ll do better “next time” and then don’t change when the time comes? Do you often decide to do something “later” only to find that it never gets done? If you answered “yes” to either one of these questions, you’re probably ignoring the fact that your behavior today is a strong indicator of your behavior tomorrow.

Dream Day aims to activate the transformative power of dreams by empowering dreamers to DO. This is the day when the dreamers, the visionaries and the innovators are honored. The overall mission of this initiative is to empower  individuals, organizations/business and communities around the world to believe that dreams, when combined with thoughtful action, truly CAN and WILL change the world.

World Dream Day and the Dreambook Project

World Dream Day (WDD) is an international movement that is acknowledged by the United Nations. It seeks to unleash human potential and by doing so transform the world. You can browse dayfordreamers.com for more info. The founder of World Dream Day, Ozioma Egwuonwu, has given the go signal for WDD Philippines.

WDD Philippines will use a few pages from Dreambook to help participants specify, clarify and celebrate their dreams or goals, and plan on how to reach these dreams and move these dreams forward. Life coach Claude Sta. Clara will be the speaker and facilitator for the program. Coach Claude is currently a consultant at Mind Pool, Organizational Change Consultants International, and Fullness of Life Foundation.

Dreambooks are inspirational life coaching journals which are currently sold via National Bookstore and Powerbooks. It guides people to unearth their dreams and inspires them to make those dreams reality. Also, it invites users to take action and stay true to their dreams. Please browse facebook.com/dreambookproject for more info.

Wrap Up

I will be joining the Dreambook Project’s World Dream Day Philippines on September 27 in Powerbooks Greenbelt, and I hope to see you there, too. 🙂 I hope that we can be led to feel more empowered and more encouraged to move our dreams forward and together become a community of dreamers supporting each other! May this be a momentum going for our dreams! I expect that participants will be able develop their own road map better, formalize their  dreams, and with simple but powerful tips and techniques, make them come true.

    I’ve never heard of World Dream Day before- thanks for sharing! I think I will have to come up with a list of things. I know the first thing on my list is going to be getting an A in my current MBA class- been doing well so far, so want to continue that streak!

    I haven’t heard of Dream Day until today. What a wonderful idea to assist in focusing on your dreams. I also really like the fact that there is a dream journal to help focus on them more.

      Yes. Dreambook and WDD Philippines have arranged this day to be grand and epic. Everyone who will be attending the event must leave with a better focus and idea on what they want to do and how they are going to achieve what they want to do in life. 🙂 Well hopefully that includes me.

      I’m here to cheer you up, Michelle. 🙂 We all are. Mom is also on her weight loss journey, but she has to improve her health first before continuing. I wish you all the best to succeed through it!

      I’m not surprised at all. Only few people know about it but now that you’re one who knows, feel the desire for a thing/event/quality passionately- MUSTLY- to create a world with that thing/event/quality as a MUST within it. Start dreaming and chasing your dreams. 😀

      You know what, I’ve been cross-examining each destructive belief I have lately for myself, like a tough attorney. This helps me brainstorm new ways to dispute and discredit my lame excuses—by gathering “positive evidence” to the contrary. It’s one way to think ahead and dream big.

    This is the first time I’ve heard of the campaign, but it’s something that I have been doing since late 2012. While I do feel bad for putting things off because before, I’m glad to have decided to want to do the things I love now. Life’s too short to wait for the right time, right?

    This sounds very cool and wish I could be there! I dream all the time and I have a book of all my dreams since I was around 10 years old. When I look at all the dreams, so of them did came true and some didn’t, but it told me that life is always the beautiful memories that you capture. I will be celebrating Dreams Day here in the US and being with you in spirit on this day. Thanks for sharing this day with me.

      Yay! There are also people celebrating WDD in the US and I’m so glad to hear that you’re one of them!

      Most of the things we dream about are things we could do if we were willing to work toward it, align our choices to support it, and stay flexible in terms of fulfilling it. We don’t need to believe it will be easy, or it will happen quickly, or it will look exactly like we visualized it. We just need to believe in the possibility, which really means we need to believe in our own self.

      To add, you can track your dreams via the Dreambook. It uses simple yet powerful techniques to help you not only dream your biggest dream and set your goals, but to actually MAKE THEM HAPPEN too.

    I’d never heard of this before, but I love the message behind it. The world definitely needs people who can put their dreams into action!

      Right. I believe that whatever your dream, the first choice is to prioritize it. Next thing you know, you’re able to dedicate time to it, money to it, attention to it, love to it and give what you can with passion and enthusiasm.
