Teaches concrete, real-world skills for turning any dream into a reality

Many people set out to achieve a dream-starting a business or learning to play the piano or publishing a book-but they don't succeed, and the dream fizzles away. In many cases, these people have lots of skills and expertise, such as deep knowledge of the business or career they are interested in, so why don't they succeed? Paul Levesque and Art McNeil have discovered that making a dream come true requires cultivating skills of a higher order-macroskills-that inevitably spell the difference between success and failure no matter what the specifics of a person's dreams are. These are the skills Dreamcrafting outlines in detail. In Dreamcrafting, readers will learn powerful techniques for:

Defining their dreams with precision
Cultivating a sense of mission
Renewing and boosting resolve on an ongoing basis
Striking a balance between conflicting immediate and long-term goals
Getting others working with them and for them, rather than against them

Inspirational profiles of famous people whose success was fueled by a Big Dream show how they overcame the obstacles in their paths. And Dreamcrafting outlines the basic techniques all can use to overcome the obstacles to making their dreams come true.
