Pellegrino message in a bottle

Pellegrino message in a bottle

The year was 2007.

I was leading an in-person group (remember those?) as part of a 6-week program I called The Dream Circle. On this particular day, seated in a circle, I asked everyone to look around the room and silently make note of everything in the room that was red.

A minute or so later, I had them close their eyes and take a breath.

Keeping their eyes closed, I asked them to bring to mind everything in the room that was green.

A few nervous giggles filled the space, per usual. I’d led this exercise many times before, but on this day something especially memorable followed…

After allowing ample time to silently recall what they could of “green”, I invited them to open their eyes and look around to see if there was any green present in the room that they didn’t recall.

Several laughed out loud, pointing at the green Pellegrino bottle that was on the table in the center of the circle … many of whom vividly remembered the red star on that very bottle!

I love this exercise.

It does such a great job of teaching that: we find what we look for.

Tunnel vision doesn’t just prevent us from seeing what we don’t want to see, it also prevents us from seeing and discovering that which we WANT to find, but don’t look for – perhaps because we don’t believe it’s there, or possible for us.

What you want could be right in front of you, yet wholly invisible to you.

The kicker is …

     You can’t create what you can’t see.

     You can’t experience what you can’t imagine.

     And, you find what you look for.

So, what are YOU looking for?

Since you and I are connected, I’m going to venture a guess that whatever it is you are looking for … ultimately, you want a life that feels free, and fun. A life where you thrive – not just somedays, but everyday. A life where you’re no longer waiting to feel accomplished or fulfilled. A life where you’re fully and unapologetically YOU, living in a way that reflects this. Where the truth of your whole, authentic, boundless self is ALIVE and free.

Am I close ?

What if I told you … that what you want is within arm’s reach, just like that Pellegrino bottle was to everyone in that circle.

What if I told you … that what’s holding you back – both from reaching for it, even seeing it – is a blind spot that’s not your fault.

What if I told you … that what seems just out of reach, can quickly become available to you.

What if I told you … that the reason it feels so elusive is you have been socially programmed to believe status quo conventions and false constructs, also known as “brules.”

Like a house built on sand, these brules (bullshit rules) cause you to sink and settle.

You are meant to RISE.

What if I told you … that everything you want is just a few brule-breaking shifts away.

Here’s how it works:

Once you become aware of a previous blind spot, when brules no longer hide in plain sight … you become willing to not only see things differently, you start to show up differently.

When a foundational shift in perception happens for you, your reality changes.

Sometimes, like the Pellegrino bottle example, you come to see what was there all along!

What you previously believed to be impossible or unrealistic, suddenly isn’t.

Reality didn’t change. You did. 

It all begins with just a few shifts – in perception, belief, behavior.

Your old “imaginary” or “impossible” can quickly become your new reality.

The Brule Breakers Club is your invitation to make those shifts, quickly, joyfully, and with an incredible community of support. We are going to shine a big brilliant light on the brules that are holding you back, hiding in plain sight.

This is the compassionate clear-eyed kick in the pants you’ve been waiting for.

This is your next evolution.

Don’t give up on your dreams. Don’t settle.

It is time, for you, to LIVE your unique-to-you no-vacation-needed life!

The Brule Breakers Club lifetime membership is going to help you connect the dots so that you can finally have what you want out of life, all within an extraordinary community of support.

We all have our lone ranger tendencies, but this isn’t something to try to do by yourself. Why? Because brule breaking can get confusing – fast. This socially accepted nonsense is baked in to every system, and every habit, and every everything. Assumed to be unquestionably true by many, this only further allows them to go unnoticed and continue to hide in plain sight.

But – once you join The Brule Breakers Club and you see all these baked-in brules, you won’t be able to unsee them. You can break free and make the small shifts that are going to make the biggest difference for you.

Planning for a big 2022

Planning for a big 2022

Welp, here we are …

2022 is just around the bend.

It’s been an(other) unusual twelve months and I think it’s fair to say, no one has gone unchallenged this year. Yet in the midst of the challenges, we’ve also each been presented with some unique opportunities: to embrace a new kind of rhythm, to make lifestyle adjustments, to find innovative ways to nurture connections, to discover new strategies for how we work, self-care, and create, to name a few…

 

Before the close of each year, I find that doing a Year-in-Review reflection is a valuable exercise and a powerful way to set the stage for the year to come. Doing an annual reflective review is something I not only coach clients to do, but something I do myself.

 

3 powerful Year-in-Review questions to consider:

1.)
What did you accomplish, create, or achieve in this past year? Create a big long list.

2.)
What goals or dreams did NOT come to fruition for you this year? It’s uber important not to ignore or disregard the fact that you didn’t achieve them. By shining light on them you’ll gain clarity and momentum about what you really truly want in the coming year.

3.)
What is your action plan? What will you do differently in the coming year?

 

 

Today I feel inspired to briefly share some of my own 2021 highlights, a few personal goals for 2022, and some exciting ways we can connect in the new year.

 


2021 Tara’tory:

 

  • As an RVer, I’ve been able to enjoy continued domestic travel, rolling across state lines in my Airstream, a.k.a. condo on wheels. My quick travel synopsis from 2021: Winter in New Mexico, New Orleans and Florida in the Spring, Summer in the northeast, and Fall in the Berkshires, Niagra Falls, and Illinois. (Friendly reminder: While many venues are closed, nature is open and she’s beautiful as ever, so get out there and hug a tree or something.)
  • Illinois is where I was when my book launched on Amazon and became a bestseller. The launch and success of The Brules of Life and The Brules of Life Companion Workbook was a definite bright spot in my year, the culmination of a tremendous amount of work and planning. Seeing how well it is being received, hearing how it is touching and inspiring the lives others, is the ultimate repayment.
  • I ran more in 2021. Salsa clubs used to be my sweaty haven, but times have changed. Running has become both a mental health and physical health outlet for me. 5k is a typical distance now, but as I look to 2022, I’ve got a 10k training app tempting/taunting me to go further.
  • Along with the launch of my book and coaching my clients to harness the unique opportunities of this interesting year, countless improvements and updates have been made to my website and offerings, to include a special new free gift, and other gems – all of which are waiting for you at tarasagecoaching.com.
Ok, 2022.

 

My 2022 goals include: increasing readership of my book, start writing my next book, reach some fitness milestones, put out more video content, and light a fire under a creative project I’ve got sitting on the back burner.

 

January is going to be a full month, and includes several exciting opportunities to connect!

January 5: Brule Break-a-thon Livestream! 

Jumpstart the New Year with a different take on resolutions! On January 5th, I am joining forces with community coach, Peter Bowden, for a fun, one-of-a-kind, interactive, livestream event to help you identify the “brules” (bullshit rules) that are holding you back so that YOU make 2022 a joyful, life-enhancing, dream-fulfilling year! It’s going to be a hoot! Subscribe, like, share, and invite your friends!


January 14: Book signing!
I’ll be doing an (outdoor) book signing at Sundog Bookstore in Seaside, FL. This is a fabulous independent bookstore I’ve visited many times, while envisioning the day when my book might be on their shelves. That day is here! If you’re in the area, stop by! 11am – 2pm

 

January 19-23: RV Show! This will be my third year on the seminar stage at the Florida RV Supershow in Tampa, presenting Nomadic Living 101: How to Live Nomadically for a Month, a Season, a Year or Forever. 1pm, daily.So that’s a bit of what’s happening in my world . Let’s start the year off strong together!

 

Are YOU determined to make 2022 different and finally bring those back-burner dreams to life? Are you ready to tell yourself the truth about what you want, refuse beliefs about limitation, fears about worthiness, and lies about what you “can’t” do? If so … claim your seat in The Dream Acceleration Program for all of this and more in the New Year! There are just a few openings, so enroll today.

 

Looking ahead to 2022, I am 100% committed to taking extraordinary care of myself while also giving (you) a lot more. It feels wonderful to know how deeply compatible these intentions are.

 

Onward and upward!

 

Here’s to a happy healthy dream-fulfilling New Year,
Tara Sage

What this client did left me shocked!

What this client did left me shocked!

Totally unprompted, a client of mine reached out to me. She shared that she was sending me money.

Perhaps so far, this story doesn’t sound that out of the ordinary.  

But this client didn’t owe me any money.

She said she had decided to PAY the way – as a decidedly anonymous donor – for whomever I chose to receive a full scholarship to my signature program, The Dream Acceleration™ Program.

WHY would she do this?!?

She said simply that she credits The Dream Acceleration™ Program for so much of the success that she’s had, and she wants to help someone else have this special opportunity. She explained that she wants to know she helped someone else say a big YES to their dreams. That now that she can, she is eager to give back and pay the way for someone else who may not otherwise have the opportunity to join the program.   

Whoa.

Incredible, right? 

I’ve said a million times that I have the best clients in the world. This was just more evidence of how incredible my clients are.

Moved and inspired by her blind generosity, I could hardly wait to share.

So I shared on Facebook about this incredible generous offering and within minutes guess what happened next?? …

I received the following private message from yet ANOTHER client:

“Tara, I would like to donate $100 towards your scholarship program. The Dream Acceleration™ Program changed my life, and I too would like to give back in a meaningful way.”

I was blown away.  

Two past clients donating to future clients, people they didn’t know!

Wow.

When I tell you I have had the true honor of leading this extraordinary program for hundreds of people spanning 4 continents in the 15+ years I’ve been in business … I mean it.

While the scholarships have been claimed, I have a special GIFT for you.

I have put together a very special FREE video training: “9 Simple Powerful Strategies to Accelerate the Realization of Your Dreams” … walking you through exactly how to take the simple, powerful actions required to make your dreams real.

Here’s to refreshing surprises and dreams realized.

Video 7: 9 Simple Powerful Strategies to Accelerate the Realization of Your Dreams

Video 7: 9 Simple Powerful Strategies to Accelerate the Realization of Your Dreams

Who is on YOUR Dream Team?  

Hi there! It’s Tara Sage of tarasagecoaching.com and by now you know I help people live their dreams. You are watching this special video series designed to help you create a life you absolutely adore, a life you don’t need a vacation from, a life that inspires you to get up and out of bed in the morning with gusto, excited for the day ahead.

The video series is called 9 Simple Powerful Strategies to Accelerate Your Dreams. I’m breaking it down one strategy at a time, into manageable, bite sized pieces. And today I’ll be sharing another twofer!  Yay! 

Today I’ll be sharing Dream Acceleration Strategy #8 & #9!

But first my disclaimer: If you are new to this series or you missed previous videos outlining Strategy 1, Strategy 2, Strategy 3, Strategy 4, Strategy 5, Strategy 6 & 7, I recommend you go back and watch those first and then come back to this video and join me again for strategies 8 and 9.

Click below to watch and learn Strategy #8 & #9 of 9 Simple Powerful Strategies to Accelerate the Realization of Your Dreams.

Or, if you prefer … scroll down to read the transcript. 

Strategy #8 is simply to Spend More Time with People who Believe in You and Your Dreams

It is so important to surround yourself with a community of people who believe in you and believe in your dreams. I call these folks Your Dream Team.

Trust me, I understand the urge to keep dreams private, secret, protected. It can feel vulnerable, especially when your dream is not received with support. So, rather than risk being ridiculed or dismissed or criticized, maybe up until now you’ve decided to go it alone and do it all by yourself. 

Here’s the problem with this strategy: It leads to stress, overwhelm, and feelings of isolation.

Now one of the things I offer in my signature program Dream Acceleration Program, is going in-depth about creating what I call your Naysayer Navigation Plan… 

This is about making a point to spend time with people who believe in you and your dreams, and also be fully prepared for how to handle the fact that not everyone is going to jump up and down and celebrate your dreams with you.  

This is extremely important.  You really can’t do it alone. And if you have a little voice in your head saying “yes, I can, Tara…” I challenge you to honestly look at how that’s going for you.

If you want to really accelerate the process, having the right support can make all the difference! Especially for us we should be able to do it all by our self people!

Just the fact that you’re watching means that you feel called to be connected. You feel called to be a part of what I like to call a “Culture of Dreaming”.  By finding your way to this video, which again I don’t believe to be a coincidence, you have aligned yourself with access to this kind of support.  You have begun to connect to a very powerful, deeply transformational process.

There’s no insta-pill. So the key is to keep going. The Dream Acceleration Program is an opportunity for YOU to have an even more intimate connection to support and the depth of material that will help create that transformation.

Before I go into sharing Strategy #9, I want to share with you here a little bit more about The Dream Acceleration Program because this is such a powerful process.

This signature program is like receiving private coaching from me at a fraction of the rate, though audio trainings, and at your fingertips access to all the worksheets and content you need, delivered to you – again – one manageable step at a time.

You’ll find more detail about the program by visiting www.dreamaccelerationprogram.com

Don’t just take my word for it.  Visit dreamaccelerationprogram.com and check out the stories of clients who’ve worked the program and experienced the results.

To give you a first-hand sense of it, a client of mine named Laurie made a quick video about her own dream acceleration journey, which you’ll see by following the link to the program details.

It was December when Laurie and I started working together, and just 6 months later, she fulfilled her dream of moving to Costa Rica!  Now, of course, there’s more to the story than that and, as I said, you can find the amazing inspiring video of her story by going now to www.dreamaccelerationprogram.com 

But to give you fair warning, be sure to have tissues nearby. The video is so moving. I well up, every single time I watch it.

Through this program, I have had the honor and privilege to support driven dreamers like you, so that you are consistently and powerfully creating accelerated momentum, feeling excited and energized about bringing your dreams to life and creating a life you love.

You could be living in Costa Rica.  Or whatever your dream destination is.

You could go from creating artwork on your dining table to having your very own studio.

Or like some of my other clients …

You could be generating 240k in your first year of business.

You could buy your dream yacht to sail around Antarctica at age 62.

You could be the designer who’s gearing up to leave her day job after selling more pieces last month, than all of last year combined!

You could finally take the leap of faith to leave that corporate j-o-b after 25 years, or 10 years, 3 years, or 3 months, and gracefully land in a career of your own design.

You could be the next “closeted creative” who breaks free and stops hiding. Like the mom who woke up everyday with images in her mind and knew herself to be a painter but had no brushes or paint, because she feared that if she allowed herself to paint, she’d neglect her family.   

I’m happy to report that she has since not only bought herself paint and brushes, but has travelled internationally to attend trainings in her art and her kids have not been neglected. In fact, they now have a mom who’s happier.

Something all of these folks have in common is that they started at Step 1. They said “yes” to registering for the Dream Acceleration Program, and they took the brave step to connect with their imaginations, admitting what they want, and finally saying their dreams out loud without any disclaimers – first to themselves, and then to other people.

And all of this, while the stories of “unrealistic” “impossible” “selfish” or “not enough whatever” … all that gets left in the dust.

Sounds pretty good, doesn’t it?  So how do we do that?

Well, I’ve come to understand it’s an actual step-by-step process. And it’s what I refer to as The Dream Acceleration Process and I’ve created the Dream Acceleration Program specifically designed to support you in doing this.

So let me tell you a little more about that.

It’s a 6-month program, and in it, I’ll be giving you all my dream realization secrets, immediate energy management tools to use, and direct hands on how-to’s so you have a clear, proven process and you are fully equipped to realize any dream you can imagine.

Now, if you’re a visual person, I invite you see what I’m talking about in a bit more detail at www.dreamaccelerationprogram.com  You’ll see an outline of the steps that we walk through together in the program, and you’ll see all the bonuses and what’s included with the program – to include private calls with me!

I have put an enormous amount of thought and heart into designing this program.

It’s my signature program. It’s the culmination of my psychology degree, also pulling from what I learned while earning my Masters degree in Holistic Leadership, my coach training, as well as tons of self-study … and also the super-valuable school of hard knocks. 

I’ve condensed it down into the best, most efficient, effective tools so that you have exactly what you need, one module and one step at a time, to get you on the fast-track to your dreams.

I’ve built into it, private time with me. The first thing we’ll do is connected for a private 1:1 Kick-Off Activation Call. You’ll have access to anytime support throughout the program so there are no bottlenecks. If you get stuck,  we’ll get you unstuck. And, by design, there’s time enough for you to integrate the material fully before diving into the next step so we don’t have you going into overwhelm. 

The program also helps you build the muscle of independently making time for your dreamwork, creating that as a new habit – so important – so you take it with you, into the rest of your life.

Over the years, I’ve consistently made improvements to the program because I want to be sure you’re really truly actualizing your dreams. 

When you visit the website, you’ll notice the program I’m offering to you now is the 2.0 version, which is all fantastic and so valuable. 

And again, even without the coupon code, this program is priced to sell and when you look at the payoff is you get to live in Costa Rica, or leave that dead-end job, or start that business, or come out of your creative closet … or whatever your dream is.

Because , why would you stop here??

It is time to break free of what’s no longer a fit for you, to rediscover yourself and your dreams, and to experience the true freedom that life has to offer.

If you can dream it, I can coach it.

So, let’s get going … let’s get started.

The sooner you start, the sooner you’ll create this acceleration in your life.

Before we wrap, last but certainly not least, Strategy #9.

Strategy #9: Celebrate Your Successes!

There will always be higher mountains to climb and new ambitions that emerge, and it’s so important to celebrate where you are, how far you’ve come, and the many many milestones along the way!

Life truly is about the journey not the destination. And life is to be celebrated! 

And as a dreaming pioneer, keep in mind that what you create not only benefits your life, but reaches out beyond you, to those you know, and even ripples out into the world at large!

Please know that I am celebrating you for showing up.  95% of people don’t do that!  But you did. You’re here.

And if you decide to register for The Dream Acceleration Program you’ll have lifetime access to the program so you can come back to it again and again as new dreams emerge and re-engage with the material anytime!

So, I want to say thank you again so much for the opportunity to serve you and to contribute to your journey.  I absolutely love connecting with people from my community and am so delighted that our paths have crossed.

Together we really are so much more, so thank you for sharing this time with me. I look forward to the opportunity to further support you, any way that I can.  Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me directly with any question you might have.  

I look forward to our next connection!    

Until then, bye for now!
