Thank you to Pastor Robert Shaw, Christ Presbyterian Church, in Winfield, Indiana, for allowing me to use his graphic for the Dream Into It logo. He is a man of God–and one who knows about working towards ones dreams.
Following is an excerpt from the Dream Into It Workbook and Manual:
You can use the DIIP (the Dream Into It Program, pronounced “The DEEP”) to get anything you want, anything at all. This program is a “dream machine”—it manufactures whatever you tell it to give you—not by magic, but by the daily application of seven simple steps.
The program was initially designed to show would-be entrepreneurs how to turn their ideas into successful businesses, but it soon became evident that the DIIP will work for anyone who wants something. You can use it for anything from losing weight and getting in better physical condition to finally being able to afford that home by the lake.
I’ll tell you up front, though, that my ambition is for you to have it all—from better health to the life you love. Every piece is part of the same package.
A few more things that you should know before we get started:
1. This program is adaptable. You can do it early in the morning or late at night. You can use computer, paper, or both. And if you are already using another method of scheduling and time management, no problem—the DIIP will supercharge any system you are currently using. Only the basics are essential—the rest can be arranged to fit your individual style. In other words, “I already use a planner” is a really lame excuse to keep ignoring your Dream.
2. All that is necessary to get started is a bit of self-reflection and thought. Don’t worry about getting everything just right. The main thing is that you get moving. If you want your boat to float, then you must get it into the water. After 30 days, you will begin to realize the value of this work. After 90 days, you will have experienced benefits that will amaze you. After 180 days, you will have become aware of a “roadturn”, seeing paths and possibilities that were previously invisible. Put this program to the test. You won’t regret it.
3. Just reading this manual probably won’t do you much good. If you want this work to pay off big, then you must carry through with a daily fifteen-minute commitment to learning and using the steps. I don’t know of any shortcuts. The DIIP doesn’t take a lot of time, but it does take regular time. The steps are powerful medicine. They are composed of the essential vitamins for success.
Let’s face it: Life can be tough. The more you do, the more there is to do. The harder you work, the harder you need to work. At some point, there are just too many balls to juggle, and they begin to drop, one by one.
This program will help you to turn that process around. It will enable you to move steadily towards the life of your dreams. If you’re like me, the DIIP will be the first thing you have found that really works to keep you out of the ditch and on the path to the life you have always wanted.
