A Spiritual Guide to Unlimited Possibilities
Every one of us has hopes and dreams. You do. I do. For years I’ve been sharing my Dream Big message with audiences around the world. Many of my friends have told me, “Barbara, you have a talent for creating everything that you want. You imagine a dream and then it just happens.” I get numerous letters from people in my audiences who write, “I tried your suggestions and you won’t believe what happened.” With excitement, they write about their wonderful new relationship, dream job, or new house.

“I learned to choose my dreams (long term and short term) and to act as if they were already happening. I wanted a particular promotion at my job and so I started thinking about what I would need to do to get ready for the person filling in my present position. So I acted as if I already had the promotion and started creating a job manual for my replacement and learning the new job at every opportunity. Now I am training to see if I get the promotion this week, (and incidentally I got a little raise at my original position for working so hard!).” (Postscript: she got the promotion)
“Dream Big changed my outlook on life and helped me focus on my future. It allowed me to dream bigger than I ever have before and not settle for second best. After reading Dream Big – What’s The Best That Can Happen?, I felt excited and took action on my dreams. Now I’m living in a nice home, back in school and about to achieve one of my life goals. The exercise on identifying our two inner voices is very powerful and helps me listen to my good voice, which I believe is divine guidance. I wish everyone could hear Barbara’s message—she’s awesome!”
“My self-esteem was very low and I was doubtful about my life and my future. Barbara’s Dream Big gave me the tools I needed to believe in myself and take action. Now I’m on track, taking classes and determined to be a wonderful mother to my kids and a success in life. It also helped me identify the constant negative verbal communication I had with myself. Now I am able to catch myself and turn my thoughts into positive communication and actions.”
“Before reading Dream Big, I had no idea how pervasive the negative voice was in my life. By identifying the good and critical voices and naming them, I am able to ignore the discouraging voice and be sure to act on the good voice. Just making my Dream Board was a real morale booster and has motivated me to achieve my dreams. I’m determined and hopeful to succeed.”
“Dream Big gave me the hope, belief and specific tools I can use to live the life I desire. Barbara encouraged me to get the job I now have and I imagined living in the condo I now enjoy with my son. In addition, I’m exploring my creative side and have gotten involved with a local acting group, which was another of my dreams. Miracles are happening in my life and I’m excited about my future. I now know that God has many blessings waiting for me and I will not let my negative voice stop me from acting on my dreams.”
“I have finished reading your book “Dream Big: What’s the Best that can Happen?”, and I wanted to thank you for writing it. Your advice and reasoning is so accurate and helpful. So much of it was eye opening and gave me a lot to think about. One thing that particularly struck a chord was the part on taking action, rather than wondering about “how” things will happen.”
“Your writing style is very vivid and engaging, and your life story was amazing–your persistence and faith, and all those hopes and dreams coming true for you. I very much appreciated the spiritual aspect of your book as well. I found it inspiring and comforting to see God’s Word included in the plan for making dreams happen. Once again, thank you, and God bless you for writing such a wonderful book.”
“Listening to your inspiring talk Saturday, I was ready to mount my white charger, draw my sword and conquer the world. You were so fascinating, succinct, to the point with no fluff. I was literally glued to my seat during your presentation. It was just what I needed at this stage of my career. Your outline is wonderful, giving me a track to run on and a date to get there.”
“My Dream Board really made a difference in my life and my son also made a Dream Board. Before I was just focused on getting by day-to-day. Now I have goals, a purpose and big dreams. I share my board and what I’ve learned at all my meetings and with friends. I have reinforced my relationship with a higher power who I talk to daily. It’s made a major difference in my home and work life.”
“I was relieved to learn that everyone has kind of a little good voice and a critical voice in their head at times. And now I know how to always turn the nagging one into a positive conscious decision on how I would like to behave, believe and act. I actually believe that I can eventually achieve my dreams somehow and that God has blessings just waiting to happen for me every day. I still have my dream board and add to it a little. My 5 yr old daughter has made one too. If I could make so much progress in just so short of a time, I can only imagine what would happen if we had Barbara around a lot!!!”
“I am an opera singer and my big dream is, and always has been, to move to England (where there is a huge market for classical music) and become a successful recording artist. But when I think about all that I have to do, all the obstacles and things that are out of my control, it seems impossible that I will ever make it. What you said about everyone having two voices, one positive and one defeatist, in their heads, also rang true–and the way you described it was perfect. My “fearful voice” runs a tape in my head all the time: “what makes you think you have a chance at such a big dream? No one’s going to want to give you a record deal…the chances of anyone making it as a recording artist are slim to none…and you know practically nothing about living in another country, you’re never going to be able to get a visa. You’re going to fail as a singer. And what about money?” and on and on…I still struggle with over-thinking, but after reading “Dream Big”, I am inspired to start kicking that negative voice in my head to the curb for good, with God’s help. Reading your book really drove home the point that doubt and fear are useless and will do nothing but bring us down (and prevent us from taking action that can make things happen, as well as enjoying life)”.
