Product Description

Product Description

Dreams, wishes, goals, hopes, ambitions -- can a "regular" person ever achieve them?

Consider this case: a young stage actor from the Midwest goes to Hollywood to break into movies. A year and a half later, he finally lands his first role playing a bellhop. But as soon as he delivers his line, a powerful studio producer takes him aside and yells, "You ain't got it, kid. You ain't got it!"

Some would take this as a sign and give up. Not this young man. He marches forward and works hard to reach his dream, doing carpentry on the side to pay the bills.

His persistence pays off when, ten years later, he gets a game-changing part: Han Solo in Star Wars.

You'll find the rest of Harrison Ford's incredible story in Dream It Do It, along with inspiring true tales about other successful dream achievers including Maya Angelou, Bill Nye the Science Guy, and Gloria Estefan.

Read about people who've overcome personal obstacles to reach their dreams, including the amputee who becomes a champion skier, the refugee who arrives in the U.S. without a coat or even a dollar in her pocket and now owns 25 nail salons, and a little girl with a passion for airplanes who grows up to become an astronaut.

After learning valuable lessons shared by 37 dream achievers, learn how to revive and go after your own dreams using Dream CPR.

Back to the question -- can a regular person ever hope to achieve his or her dreams?

Of course. The people showcased in Dream It Do It are proof. They're ordinary folks accomplishing the extraordinary. When you resuscitate your long-lost goals and dreams and develop the Ten Essential Elements of Dream CPR, you too can reach your dreams.

Format: Paperback
There are many things I love about this book. For me, being a mother of two busy kids, I love the fact that the book is written in "bite-sized pieces". If I am waiting to pick up my son from basketball and have ten minutes, I can read an inspiring story from start to finish. The material and people profiled in the book are incredibly interesting. How did Bill Nye the Science Guy help revolutionize how kids view science? How did Maya Angelou find the strength to turn the pain she has suffered into such beautiful masterpieces? Each story has a lesson - one that I am sharing with my whole family. I've already given seven people this book as a gift!!

Format: Paperback
This is a great book because some of our favorite famous people are spotlighted and their lives are examined from before they were famous. It's helpful to me because once again I can see that we are all the same in our humanity, and anyone who puts in the effort, diligence and spiritual "something" to accomplish their dreams will do it! It lets us see we can do it, too, in whatever way feels good to us!

"We've found that dream achievers master at least one of the essential elements we've identified. Most dream achievers master several." ~Sharon Cook and Graciela Sholander
Sharon Cook and Graciela Sholander have created a recipe for success. By mixing the 10 main ingredients of success into your life, you will see your dreams jump off the pages of your journal and come to life. Not only are you encouraged to start a journal, the authors offer questions that will inspire answers that will then lead you to your dreams.
Cook and Sholander have been studying the lives of successful dreamers for years and through their research they identified ten key characteristics for success. They interviewed hundreds of people to find the elements of "Dream CPR."
Not only is this book very well organized, the main points are examined and present a powerful roadmap for success. With a journal, the inspiration in this book and your own dreams, you will be equipped with the knowledge to fulfill your dreams. If you have forgotten the dreams that once inspired you, this book may awaken the sleeping dreams and buried longings.
While reading "Dream It Do It," all I could think was: "If these individuals could see their dreams come true, I can also make my dreams a reality." I enjoyed reading the true-life example of Barbara Walters' persistence and was amazed by the resilience Maya Angelou has shown in her life.
What sustained the dreamers in this book?
Who were their mentors?
How can you put effective strategies into practice?
These questions are all answered in "Dream It Do It." It is not enough to say that you should just do something. Where do you start?
