Violette : Grabbing the Glittery Brass Ring

Violette's Creativity Tips

Grabbing the Glittery Brass Ring

Have you ever wanted to reach for your dreams but didn't know where to begin? Do you know where the expression "Grabbing the brass ring" came from? It comes from the days of riding the carousel horse where you have an opportunity to grab the brass ring and win a free ride. It was a bit risky but worth it in the end!

Going for the "prize" can be frightening, however no less scary than remaining a mere shell of what you really are meant to be.

Here's how to begin:

  1. Buy a journal to record your thoughts.

  2. Write down what you used to love to do as a child.

  3. Buy a white poster board and clip magazine images, words, or create drawings of your ideal day.

  4. Arrange the images on the poster board in a pleasing fashion and glue. Put your board up where you can see it often. Make sure to incorporate the things you loved to do as a child.

  5. Visualize yourself living the life you've created in your collage. Use all of your senses several times a day.
    The more vivid the visualization, the more apt you are to achieve your dream of grabbing that glittery brass ring! •
