This takes your dreams from sepia to color

This takes your dreams from sepia to color

Ready to bring your dreams to life?

Something I’ve long taught my coaching clients is that you can’t create what you can’t imagine.

I recently learned some fascinating brain science research that seems to suggest too that you can’t imagine what you can’t REMEMBER.  << My overly simplistic version but keep reading to see that it’s not all that far-fetched, and why it matters!

Let me explain.

First, memory recall, across the board, is very inaccurate and therefore very unreliable. This is true across all ages. The evidence is abundant that your memory, and mine, is weak at best. From witness identification errors, to recalling personal circumstances of past experiences. It’s been widely documented that most memories are totally erroneous despite the fact that people believe they are remembering accurately.

Bottom line: When it comes to memory recall, inaccuracies are consistent.

This begs the question: If memory is so unreliable and inaccurate, what then is the evolutionary purpose of memory?

Scientists have wondered, if it’s not for the value of accurate recall, what is memory FOR?

Another important discovery: Those with memory disorders (whether due to a traumatic brain injury, or Alzheimer’s, or brain surgery where part of the brain was removed or impacted in a way that caused significant memory loss) … these folks don’t only have trouble recalling the past, they ALSO have tremendous difficulty imagining the future!

This fascinating fact has led scientists to a new theory about the evolutionary purpose of memory: That memory’s evolutionary life-sustaining purpose is less about accurate recall and more about how the function of memories enables and supports the ability to imagine the future.

Ok. Here’s where all these dots connect in my mind:

As someone whose entire educational foundation, extensive experience, and decades-long career has been centered around psychology, human behavior, and systems change … this brain science theory makes a whole lot of sense to me!

Here’s one way to think about it:

Imagining the future is a bit like painting a picture.

“Paint me the picture of what you would like your life to be. Help me see it with you.” << This is something I often ask my clients to do, so that I can see, imagine, delight in, and ultimately help them move forward to CREATE their desired future.

But – what if you were asked to paint a picture and you only had blue and black to paint it with?

How vivid a painting could you paint with just that limited palate?

Not very, amiright?

So … circling back to my opening statement that you can’t create what you can’t imaginelet’s break it down:

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

And you can’t see what you can’t imagine.

And, perhaps too, you can’t imagine what you can’t remember…in the sense that memory serves as the palate you draw from, and therefore can create from.

The science suggests that memories support imagining!

And you know what imagining supports? Innovation.

Your memory therefore supports – or limits – your ability to design your future, to innovate about what’s possible.

Isn’t that fascinating?

THIS is why when a client comes to me feeling uncertain about what they want in their life and the picture of their desired future feels blurry and vague, a great place we often start is: remembering.

Drawing from your PAST, from your life experience, you have decades of recall opportunities about what you want to create, design, and experience going forward.

As you imagine, and reimagine, your future, a great place to start is to recall what has been fun, luscious, joyful, dynamic, nourishing, life-enhancing, and pleasure-filled from your past — be it 5 minutes ago, or when you were 5.

The science suggests that the more you are able to pull from what’s stored in your memory, the more colorful, luscious, and dynamic your future can be!

3 Simple Powerful Action Steps to Make Your Dreams Come True

3 Simple Powerful Action Steps to Make Your Dreams Come True

Hi there!

Let’s talk a minute about one of my favorite topics: how to make your dreams come true.

In each and every moment, we create and re-create our life with the choices we make – whether intentional or not.  Embrace this fact with full awareness, and you’ll come to understand that only YOU can decide to take the reins on your life. Your present does NOT decide your future … unless, of course, you keep thinking and doing what you’ve always done. 

Real talk: You are either creating your life by intentional design, or you are living life by default, passive chance — in other words, winging it.  Your precious life!

Here’s the doozy: Both take the same amount of time, and both use the same amount of energy. But only ONE will be an ongoing source of fuel for your soul.

Only one will have you spilling over with gratitude, joy, faith, and wonder.

Only one will align you with your best life and your best self.

Only one will inspire others, by your example, to follow their own dreams and passions.

And only one will leave you wondering why you ever hesitated or why you didn’t begin sooner!

With this in mind, the choice is clear.  But oh, it can get so murky so quickly…

Here I’m going to give you three really simple steps. So simple, you’re going to wonder why you didn’t do this before!  

And trust me when I say they are very very powerful towards making your dream(s) come true.

So, grab a piece of paper, sit down and do this:

3 Steps to Make Your Dreams Real

STEP #1: Want what you want, without apology

Write it down on a piece of paper or get out a journal and let you heart speak. Ask yourself: “If I could script my life to be unreasonably phenomenal, how would it go?” Write it out and don’t let ‘how’ limit your dreams and visions. The dreaming process begins with simply owning the truth of your desires. “How” comes later. 

To live the life of your dreams, you must first stop minimizing, apologizing, or hiding what you want. You must stop buying your own excuses about why you can’t have it or why you believe it is impossible for you. Simply let your imagination be your guide.

If you find it difficult to get clear about what you dream of, you are definitely not alone. Often the hardest part of creating your dream life is (step 1) defining what you want!  The noise of the world, the expectations of others, and all the messaging telling you what you “should” want, understandably make it VERY difficult to hear the voice of your soul speak the truth of its desires!

If this resonates for you, but you’re ready to seize the day and powerfully connect to the truth and passion of your deepest dreams and goals, click here to learn about my special Masterclass where I guide you through exactly how. 

Finding your way to this level of clarity is an absolute game-changer. It sets you up for life mastery on every level, with freedom, fun, and fulfillment in all areas of your life.  Tell me more, Tara!

STEP #2: Feel into it

If you’re clear on Step #1, the next is to feel into the depth and truth of your desires. What would it FEEL like to live your dream life? Setting fear and doubt aside for now, savor the sense of joy and excitement you feel as you imagine a life of your dreams. Enjoy just thinking about it, paying special attention to what you see, hear, and feel.  For help connecting to the felt-sense of it all, listen to this unconventional 5-minute meditation I created for you.  

STEP #3: Rate your desire

Rate the strength of your desire on a scale of 1-10. Write it down. If you’ve rated the strength of your desire less than 7 out of 10 for wanting this in your life, repeat steps 1 & 2. If you’ve rated the strength of your desire 7 or more out of 10 for wanting this in your life … let’s make it happen.  

If you’re ready to be shown exactly how to create more joy, ease, freedom and flow in your life, click here to select an appointment time for a FREE 1:1 call with me so we can talk one-to-one, explore the possibilities together, and determine your best personalized strategy forward.

Go here to schedule your complimentary session now!

I’ll close with this quote by Napoleon Hill: “Don’t wait. The time will never be just right.” 

Will you make TODAY your someday?

Time will pass either way. If you’ve read this far, there’s a reason.

I believe in you. I also believe that a desire would not be felt if the Universe couldn’t provide it.

I know it’s scary, but you can be bigger than your fear. Like many have done before you, you too can do what may feel impossible right now.

In truth, all you need to do NOW is be willing to cross the threshold and take the next step. I am here to stand with you and support you on the precipice of new possibilities. I will guide you, one step at a time, through a proven process to make those dreams REAL. 

Big love,

Tara Sage


Breaking the Mold on Coaching

Breaking the Mold on Coaching

“High-level coaching does not have to be cost prohibitive to be life changing.”

I do things differently than most coaches in the industry.

Through my company, Tara Sage Inc., I offer several comprehensive signature coaching programs:

The Dream Acceleration™ Program

The Speak Up™ Program

Nomadic Living 101 

… to name a few.

I provide in-depth seminars and trainings, both online and in person events.  

If you haven’t already, my FREE Dream Acceleration Strategies video training is a good one to grab, for sure.

And I offer Private Coaching. 

Most of my clients come from other clients.

Client referrals are and (since in 2004) have been, the primary source – like, 80% – of how I attract new clients into my business. Most people find me and my programs because someone they know recommended they connect with me.  

Referrals really are the best testimonial. 

Here’s an example of an email introduction made from a past client recommending that the woman she knows connect with me.

She wrote:

“I told you about the difference that Tara Sage has made for my business. She truly is a dream acceleration coach, listens deeply for what wants to come to light for her clients, is a brilliant life hack expert and knows how to create organic workflows, compelling messages and teaches how to enroll clients gracefully and effectively.

With her help I was able to double my income and generate my best revenue year ever – and I didn’t kill myself in the process and had fun with it. Her first 30-minutes are at no charge and you will have an opportunity to unlock something of value even in that initial engagement.”

Private coaching obviously provides the most customized and personal level support, but something I’ve consistently heard from folks who are in my signature coaching programs (The Dream Acceleration Program in particular), is how unique it is to find such affordable content-rich coaching programs that INCLUDE built-in personal customized private support.


The industry standard is that you usually get one OR the other – not both.

But anyone who knows me knows, I’m a BOTH/AND kind of person.

I re-write the rules.

I manifest new horizons.

I color outside the lines.

I don’t accept that things have to keep being done the way they’ve historically been done.

I always see new avenues and opportunities to create results.

I love finding new ways to break old molds.

I set and create my own standards about what’s possible.

I’m told that this is rather contagious. 😉

My clients quickly start seeing new opportunities where they thought there weren’t any.

They start having courageous breakthroughs in behavior patterns.

Narrow limited views suddenly open up to become broad, vast and expansive.

Possibilities they never considered before, or that seemed impossible, rapidly start coming into focus.

I love finding new ways to do things better.

And I’m fierce about my clients’ success.

As a rule, I don’t hold back on what I know will make the biggest difference for them.

Private 1:1 Coaching + Comprehensive anytime-access to invaluable at-your-fingertips content = The magic mix.  

It’s the java juice, the secret sauce, the dynamic duo.

This supercharged combination is the potent pairing that gets results.

I say this from my years of experience, integral Masters level education, and many many many hours of coaching individuals, people spanning four continents.

Customized support + timeless universal wisdom = the winning combination. 

This is what makes all the difference for you, your goals, your dreams, and your success.

Working in this way, I am able to provide high-level coaching without it being cost prohibitive.

High level coaching does NOT have to be cost prohibitive to be life changing!

This Is For You IF: 

==> You are motivated and ready to build a life and/or business that delights you …. a life that you can’t wait to get-up-and-out-of-bed-for in the morning … a life that you won’t need a vacation from.

==> You are tired of the status quo and part of you is crying out, longing to be lived, eager for a new level of experience, because you know there has GOT to be a better way.

==> You are ready to align your thoughts, words, and actions with the life you so deeply desire.

==> You want content-rich support from a coach who “gets it”, who explains things clearly, and who provides exactly what you need when you need it to achieve your goals and dreams (and keep on achieving new ones).

==> You have a “can do” attitude, you’ve had it with excuses and feeling stuck.

==> You understand the value of support, and you want to be shown exactly how to create more joy, ease, grace, and abundance – quickly and sustainably.

==> You are ready to amp up your courage, ready to be brave and supported throughout the entire process, to step up and into creating the life that you KNOW (in your heart of hearts) that somehow, someway, you are capable of.

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 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

Don’t just take my word for it.  Visit 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 

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  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!

Video 6: 9 Simple Powerful Strategies to Accelerate the Realization of Your Dreams

If your dream arrived today, would you be ready?  

Joy to you! It’s Tara Sage here of

In case you are just finding this video and are new to my work, I help people realize their dreams and I’ve been doing it since 2004. I put together this special video series to help YOU create a life you love so much that you don’t need a vacation, a life that inspires you to eagerly get up and out of bed in the morning.

The video you are watching is part of a series called 9 Simple Powerful Strategies to Accelerate Your Dreams. One step at a time, I’m walking you through how to accelerate the realization of your dream life, by putting these 9 simple strategies to work for you.  And so it’s manageable and bite-sized, I’m breaking it down and sharing them, one strategy at a time.

Today’s video is a twofer. In it, I share Strategy #6 and Strategy #7 with you.

Please note: If you are new to this series or you missed previous videos outlining Strategy #1, Strategy #2, Strategy #3, Strategy #4, and Strategy #5, I recommend you go back and watch those first and then come back to this video and join me again for Strategies 6 and 7, ok? 

Click below to watch and learn.  Or, if you prefer … scroll down to read the transcript.

Dream Acceleration Strategy #6:

Strategy #6 is to Work Backwards. Strategy #6 is all about creating Your Inspired Action Plan in support of continued momentum and ongoing success and ease.  

If you want to really up the ante and quantum leap your dream full-steam ahead, a powerful success strategy is to work backward from the fulfillment of your dream, identifying milestone markers along the way and being sure that you have other people holding you accountable to your action plan. 

This is what will really support your dreams and your continued success.

And, this takes us right into Strategy #7: Make Room in Your Life for Your Dreams. Here’s what I mean.

It’s so easy to feel the longing in your heart … that ache and anticipation awaiting the day when your dream is fully actualized and you are joyfully living it out.  I’ll bet even as you think of it now, it feels so good.

But I’d like you to consider this: If your dream arrived today, would you be ready? I mean really ready? If your dream were to arrive on your doorstep today, would you open the door and say welcome! Oh I have been waiting for you and I’m so glad you’re here! Come in, come in!

Or would you say, “Ummmmm … could you come back, in like, 6 months?”

You need to prepare the space in your life for your dream, so that when it arrives you’re not just starting then to make space for it.  It takes preparation and forethought to get ready and anticipate the arrival of your dream in your life, and you’ll want to do everything you can to be ready to fully and joyfully receive and welcome it into your experience, the moment it arrives.

I’ll give a quick personal example of this:

When I first started my business, I hit a ‘‘block’’ around cleaning out an old filing cabinet that was in my home office.  I put it off for weeks, because it felt like drudgery to even think about doing. But, when I shifted my perspective it became something I couldn’t wait to begin. 

I had been dreading this task because I had been focused only on the nuances and effort required to go through everything in my filing cabinet. But, once I shifted my focus and saw it as a declaration to the Universe that I was making room for all the client folders that I was yet to have, I had a whole new incentive! 

This realization changed the energy around the task entirely!  Within no time, I had enthusiastically cleared and made room – both physically and metaphorically, and you might even say metaphysically – for new clients to enter my world.  And, soon after, they did and I was busy and really happy to be able to focus my time and energy on serving my clients, rather than on cleaning out a filing cabinet to make room for their folders!

This was as much an internal process for me as it was external. As I cleared out the filing cabinet, I was also clearing out my internal cobwebs, the ones that had me hesitating or not yet fully confident about working one-on-one with clients or fully welcoming them into my experience…

So, when you powerfully and properly prepare, you prepare yourself to receive whatever it is that you want.  You can identify your dream in even the most crystal clear vision, and then take clear and focused action toward its realization. But if, when it arrives, you aren’t ready to receive it, this is the stage where I’ve seen after all that visioning and all that action, that too many dreams are sabotaged.  And it just doesn’t have to be that way. 

What’s one step that YOU can take in the next 24 hours to make room for your dream?  If your dream arrived today, would you be ready to fully receive it and welcome it into your life?

Ready for the final two? >>> Dream Acceleration Strategy #8 and Strategy #9!
