The Hidden Code For Transforming Dreams Into Reality | Mary Morrissey | TEDxWilmingtonWomen

  • Published on Dec 21, 2016
  • What could your ideal life look like one year from today? Throughout her life Mary was able to improve her results, no matter how difficult the challenge. Though interactions with thousands of leaders including the Dalai Lama, Nelson Mandela, and delegates to the United Nations, Mary and explains how to advance confidently in the direction of your dreams.
    Mary has over 40 years experience empowering individuals in the areas of abundance, authenticity, and success. As a sought after expert on the “invisible side” of success, Mary has spoken three times at the United Nations, and worked with His Holiness The Dalai Lama and Nelson Mandela. Mary has a Master's Degree in Counseling Psychology, an honorary Doctorate in Humane Letters and is the author of two best-selling books, No Less Than Greatness and Building Your Field of Dreams, which also became a PBS special. Among all of her achievements and degrees in higher learning, Mary’s favorites are the two black belts she has earned; one in Success and the other in Failure.

    TEDx stage is now turning into a platform for exhibiting their medical history. The audience is bored to sleep and when up we think, ok maybe the guest speaker has revealed, deciphered, and shared their success code while I was diverted.
    The 20 something RU-cliprs can tell you more about life and motivation than these hyped personalities.
    TED talks has lost it.

    A lot of these speakers assume that people have the clarity of what it is they want to do with their lives. That can be difficult for some to figure out. My advice to people that are struggling finding their purpose, is to just live life without expectations. Put yourself in different situations, seek out different experiences. Experience life through different perspectives. You first need to know yourself well before you can know what it is that your heart desires.

      well said. at 56 years of age I still don;t know what I want to do with my life and have stayed in a position of low paid jobs and under achievement but serving people less fortunate as I believed the bulls**t fed to us that poverty is somehow noble and I would get my reward in heaven, blah blah. Now I'm waking up to the truth and I believe I am worthy to receive great wealth and abundance for me now in my physical experience. I am probably now having the best experiences of my life and just going with the imagination of dreams and where they take me.

    I lack clarity to know what to do. I can sit for hours day in day out and still have no idea what to do. I can write lists and goals and I still have no finite direction. I wish I had a goal or passion. I try hard to find it but just can’t. Maybe it will find me, maybe it won’t. I’ll wait and see.

    The lady in the hospital was trying to teach you to cast your anxiety on the Lord God. "Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus"

    Earlier today before seeing this video the following happened:
    I just received an inspiring vision.
    A vision where I will be stepping well out of my comfort zone.
    A vision where I will learn to network with people in my community (being naturally introverted- this is BIG).
    A vision where people will come together for the purpose of reaching out and uplifting others.
    A vision where the sole (soul) purpose is for those who have can inspire and treat those who haven’t found it yet.
    If this vision had come to me before it would’ve been a passing thought and it would have been brushed aside.
    And even though this vision may take time to come to fruition it is one that has not been dismissed it’s been journaled and I trust that more will unfold.
    This is what I love about this business, it cracks you wide open and dreams and desires become possibilities 🌺💜✨
    Seeing your video Mary is so inspiring. You have a bra way of telling your story xo

      Jonell Townsend Think about this. If you were the creator, would you constantly want your needy creations to keep coming back to you pleading for help? Or would you want them to grow up and realize that everything they need is inside themselves. As a parent, you only have one thing to do. Teach your child how to grow up and live without you taking care of them. If this is the way we are modeled, why would our creator want it any other way? Your command to us to pray is condescending, at best. Who in their right mind is going to follow a command from a stranger who is demanding they take on his beliefs with no explanation while going against the model? Might want to talk to your parents and find out why they thought that instilling you with a lesson that goes against universal principles was a good idea. I mean no disrespect. I only mean this to be positive.

    I frequently love to watch your videos over, for I always learn from them. I am so amazingly impressed how you get your messages across so clearly , efficiently, and articulately. You are so passionate about all of which you share, and have so many powerful messages. Although I don't wish to be a public speaker, I am going to be the main speaker this Sunday, at my church, to share my story and insights through your programs, and especially DreamBuilder Live. Listening to your talks, totally help me to be clearer about what and how to share. Like I said once before, as you, when I come from my heart , I know I will do great, .I totally enjoy learning from the best-thanks Mary! You have been a true blessing in my life, in so many ways! Love ya! God bless you!

    SIMPLY GREAT ADVICE!! Stuff I've known intuitively from adolesence but not always
    acted on. Fulfillment requires effort. And, honestly, I'm a sluggard for accomplishment. Most valuable is Mary's comments about visualization of health anomalies and thinking POSITIVE and parking them at the EXIT.

    I can't help but think that her deep love for children and desire to 'raise' them into confident, accomplished adults attracted her early motherhood experience. She hadn't consciously planned for a child at that age, and was technically 'unprepared' for him, but she had such a vocation toward children in general that her son was her dream manifesting in more ways than she had expected. She vibrated the essence of 'motherhood', and her life experience could only reflect that.
    Very, very inspiring talk. I am the most mentally scattered person I know, and seriously lack focus when it comes to manifesting. I still always somehow get there, but I will challenge myself to visualize specific scenarios every day for at least a week, and see if I can speed up my processes a little.. ;)

    I like that one thought. Humans change things. . . . all you have to do is keep breathing, and in one year things will unfold that weren't there before. Whether that's a sound premise to move on or not, it is a burden lifter and a positive thought. Pretty much what we all need.
