You are a dreamer who needs to seek help assessing her dream, developing a strategy and implementing it. You may also need to develop a new lifestyle. You may be taking actions towards your dream, but they are inconsistent. To shift your life, you need consistent action that is built on a plan and moves you steadily to your dream. This means two things: 100% commitment and Dream Discipline.
Commitment needs faith and self-love. Dream Discipline comes from a new set of mind habits and from healing your relationship with time. Hidden beliefs about freedom may also be causing resistance. If you are doing everything alone, you may also need new skills.
Take a Private Coaching Session with Maria Mar to see what you need and make a plan of action. This is a small investment that can pay back big time in clarity about what you want and what's stopping you, increase in your faith and the discovery or hidden forces that may be holding you back without your knowledge.

You are a dreamer who is using fantasy to escape a life that you donít like. There is nothing wrong with fantasy. It is the source of human innovation.

If you are feeling like Penelope, who wove a beautiful fresco during the day, only to destroy it at night, you may be sabotaging yourself. The source of your self-sabotage is hidden in the folds of your Psyche. You need in-depth help to get it out into your conscious awareness, so that you stop being your own worse enemy.
The Hunt Down the Inner Enemies of Success Home Study Course has all the information to help you understand what is happening inside you. In this life system, created by Maria Mar exclusively for women, you will be able to understand the hidden forces that sabotage your dreams, how you created them and how to release yourself and embrace your creative powers.

You are definitely a daydreamer. You are a creative, passionate woman who values freedom and has her own mind. But hidden in your psyche lurk old emotions gathered around toxic, negative thoughts that are eroding your self-value. You may also feel that you are alone, and therefore you do not ask for help. You resistance may be blocking the flow of the Law of Attraction!
In a way, you fear what you want. You may secretly feel that you do not deserve it, even though you keep trying to convince yourself of the contrary. No amount of talking and thinking will help, because the logical mind is sabotaging you, and you cannot bring your executive power to sustain your imagination. You will need to open a space and time for yourself and your dream if you want to get out of that rut.
