Course Description

Despite having had two satisfying careers, 12 years in sports promotions and 15 years running a successful business, entrepreneur Dawn Sprong’s life felt empty and without meaning. She had a nagging feeling that there had to be something more to life, so she withdrew from the rat race to begin a search for what is possible.

In this course Dawn discusses her transformation process, and will take you down the path that took her from feeling empty and unfulfilled to a life of joy and fulfillment.

She will show you how to step out of the ordinary and step into what is within you—happiness, abundance, and oneness with life. Her "soul" intention is to help you realize how to live the life of your dreams by inspiring you to look deeper within.

You’ll learn that your thoughts are like seeds for the garden of your life, and when you plant love, joy and gratitude you’ll yield peace, happiness and affluence.

The success of Dawn's company, MAI Apparel, the Blessing Bracelets, her home, marriage, and what she sees as having every gift of life possible, are actually the result of her retirement from chasing money and materialism.

The truth for Dawn is to seek peace, happiness and affluence, and to bring those same gifts to others.

How can we be the change in the world when we are afraid to “be the change we wish to see in ourselves?”
It begins with a small and simple shift (I did not say easy). A belief in SELF. Change starts with the trust of SELF. It creates an outward ripple effect.You are everything you believe yourself to be, and capable of all the things you dream to be possible.

What is possible? That is the question that she believes every life must answer. Is anything random, or are we just conditioned from birth to ignore what our heart is calling us to respond to? After spending thousands of hours writing, studying, reading and meditating, a new life emerged. Dawn no longer feels that she is the person she once was owing to the fact that she has found joy by letting life work through her.

The success of MAI Apparel, the blessing bracelets, her home, marriage, and what she sees as every gift of life possible are actually the result of Dawn’s retirement from chasing money and materialism. The truth for Dawn is to seek peace, happiness, and affluence, and to bring those same gifts to others. When you give it comes back to you. Everyone can have their heart’s desires. Finding the dream you were born into is a journey that is beyond what you are being told, what you are taught, or what you can even imagine.

We'll examine what it is that we want in life, and how we can create a life of purpose that is both meaningful to ourselves and to others.

A Message from Dawn about Her Company that Sells Blessing Bracelets

I created the Blessing Bracelet two years ago, and I attached a message to friends on several handmade bracelets. I made the bracelets with my friend Heather for a couple of years, and they were just my gifts to friends and neighbors. I was inspired to write the message because I had experienced a profound shift in my own life and thinking. As I was struggling with some major life changes it came to me that life was a struggle in part because no matter what I had or what I asked for, it was never enough. I didn’t slow down enough to sit in appreciation of what I already had.

This awareness opened up a new and committed level deep inside me, and my life changed. Suddenly, the world looked brighter, and I realized that being grateful was truly the way to live. It also paved the way for me to truly open my heart to the world, and make the difference I somehow always thought possible.

So to make a long journey a bit shorter, I wrote the blessing message on a tag, cut it out, and attached it to my girlfriend’s gift. Within a week I had orders for 20, and in two weeks for 50. Now, two years later, over 200,000 have circled the globe. We still make them in our living room, ship from our dining room, and continue to have our own field of dreams.

As part of our company mission that’s meant to inspire humankind to make a spirit-based shift of perspective, we adopt animals, and help people who need help. All these blessings are bringing more joy, fun and blessings to my family, and to everyone we come in contact with, and to me!

Begin to notice the thoughts you have that have become habitual negative thoughts, and become aware of the harmful effects they have on your frame of mind and how you view life. You can break free from the thoughts that weigh you down, and replace them with happy, positive,and productive thoughts.

You are your thoughts. Wherever your thoughts take you is where you are. Whatever you think possible is. There’s power in your thoughts.If you constantly focus on what you don’t like that’s what you’ll manifest.

If you visualize your life as a garden and your thoughts as seeds you'll want to plant the seeds (thoughts) that will produce abundance, joy, and fulfillment, and then pull out all the unwanted weeds of negativity that may keep springing up.

LECTURE 8: MAKE YOUR INTENTIONS WITH FULL OUT FEELINGS

Within everyone is an “ideal” life. If you let yourself dream you will begin to see it. So, you ask, what would that do for you other than excite you and then be a big let down once the dream is over?
Well think about this; you would not be able to dream some thing that was not possible. You brain would not be able to put together data from something that did not have the possibility to exist. So in order to create this life you have to intend it. Not just desire it, which is like a wish or a hope, but you have to full out intend it and know it is possible. Intention is an eternal flame, it won’t go out. It is based on belief and knowing that you have your dreams for a reason.

Intention is not based on what others tell you, it is based on what you know in your heart to be true. The only one thing that has an effect on this flame on intention is fear. The fear is your saying, “I do not believe in myself.” That is when you have the opportunity to ask, ” What else, or who else could there possibly be to believe in, if I cannot believe in myself?

There is great power in that which you know, but cannot see.
Belief in the unseen
is the magic that brings it into existence.

Who do you ask?

Many times I see others looking for answers. Usually they don't trust the answers they feel. I understand this, because we all want to feel the connection that comes from the approval of others, and we may be afraid of making a mistake.
However, I caution you to be aware of who you're asking. If you must ask, and if you're soliciting advice, ask someone who is happy, carefree, at peace, wealthy, or open . . . At least you'll have a chance of getting advice that is not based on fear or negativity. Allow yourself to listen to the advice with your heart and to trust the feelings that come up. Ultimately, the most relevant answers will come from within you–you matter.

A Good Day by Brother David

Why gratitude?

Here is the honest reason; if you are happier, you will be nicer.

If you are nicer, my world will improve, and then so will the world my children and friends live in.

If everyone is kinder because they are happier, life will evolve. Again back to me. I can no longer participate in the pointless pursuit of more, more, more, without meaning or end.

Gratitude—- nicer——-happier——-kinder——-generous—–and then all the endless possibilities that exist will come to light when we stop competing and judging each other and ourselves.

Gratitude is truly what inspired all of the changes and intentions I wanted in my life, including my own happiness. My choice to be happy and to inspire myself,led me to want the same thing for others.

I did not want to teach it, I wanted to be it. I didn't want to tell others to “be the change.” No, that wasn't it. I wanted to be it, and deep inside me I felt that “I am the change.” I am willing to be the first to step off the edge and create the world I wish to see.

Before you know it, we will all be living our dreams and feeling connected, and again, it goes back to me. I will live in a world that makes sense and my purpose here will be complete.

I started the Blessing Bracelet is to increase gratitude worldwide. Why?

The answer may be different that you think. This is not a religious attempt to start a prayer group, or a “Pollyanna” group attempting to be sentimental. My focus is on none of those, but only on gratitude.

So why gratitude?

  1. Grateful people are nicer. Watch the way your treat you kids when you are happy vs. unhappy. From a very selfish perspective, if you are happy and I cross your path you will not find fault with me.
  2. Simple physics, law of attraction, or whatever you want to refer to it as, it's simply the more gratitude we have the more we will find to be grateful for. I don't know about everyone, but the people I come in contact with are excited to know someone is actually pulling on their behalf. Essentially, one happy blessed person can change one life that will affect another life, and on and on.
  3. Isn’t it time for a change, an evolution of sorts? We haven't really changed a thing by all the stuff that we have created with our lives. Maybe now we're aware that having more stuff changes nothing, so it's time for a change. What if we put our energy into changing ourselves on the inside, and then look outward to our stuff. Isn’t it worth a try?

    And finally (I hear drums), gratitude is one way to open the eyes of society, one person at a time. There is no us or them, or he said or she said, there's only ONE—I, you, or me. If the ONE person practicing gratitude sees, “most of what I have focused on in life I have received,” we all might come to a new realization.

    If I focus on barely surviving in a tough life, or making money and proving to my neighbors how cool I am, and yet sense something is still missing, I must dig deeper.

    To change time (yes that's right we are attempting to change time) we begin with the fact that everyone is in such a hurry they wonder why they never have enough time. Actually many complaints may be very time related. When you find something to appreciate, time stops, and only for a second you become present. Time no longer exists when you are in the present, or for a simple view, it no longer matters. Spend more time being grateful and time will, at the very least, slow down in your life. If enough people stop racing around for the next “accomplishment,” focus on the present, and embrace gratitude, time will change.We become aware of how gratitude ripples out to the general population.we begin to worry less about what we don't have, how much more we still need, or who has more. Perhaps then, while being in the present, we will share.

    If I have received what I have asked for, and gratefully acknowledge it, what would happen if I asked for different things? For instance, rather than asking for money or a new car, ask for a purpose, and rather than a hot boyfriend, ask to know love. The list could go on, but finding all you have to be grateful for could really change the many things you ask for.

Instructor Biography

Dawn Sprong, Entrepreneur/success coach

Dawn Sprong, founder of Made as Intended, Inc., had to find out for herself why she had the nagging feeling she was missing the entire point of being alive. After 12 years in sports promotions and 15 years running a successful business, she withdrew from the rat race and went in search of what is possible.
After spending thousands of hours writing, studying, reading and meditating, a new life emerged. Dawn no longer feels that she is the person she once was owing to the fact that she has found joy by letting life work through her. This meant making every decision based on what her heart and instincts were telling her and ignoring pretty much everything she had been taught about life.
"This awareness opened up a new and committed level deep inside me, and my life changed. Suddenly, the world looked brighter, and I realized that being grateful was truly the way to live. It also paved the way for me to truly open my heart to the world, and make the difference I somehow always thought possible.
"I created the Blessing Bracelet two years ago and made them with my friend Heather for a couple of years, just as gifts for friends and neighbors.

As I was struggling with some major life changes it came to me that life was a struggle in part because no matter what I had or what I asked for, it was never enough. I didn’t slow down enough to sit in appreciation of what I already had.
"To make a long journey a bit shorter, within a week after giving the Blessing Bracelets with the blessing messages to friends we had orders for 20, and in two weeks for 50. Now, two years later over 200,000 have circled the globe. We still make them in our living room, ship from our dining room, and continue to have our own field of dreams. Whoever said you can’t have fun where you work. Here at MAI Apparel we mix work with fun, animals, and an office environment that feels like a home. Oh, that’s right, it is our home!"

The success of MAI Apparel, the blessing bracelets, her home, marriage, and what she sees as every gift of life possible are actually the result of her retirement from chasing money and materialism. The truth for Dawn is to seek peace, happiness, and affluence, and to bring those same gifts to others. When you give—it comes back to you. You can have your heart’s desires. Finding the dream you were born into is a journey that is beyond what you are being told, what you are taught, or what you can even imagine.

Dawn's company "Made As Intended" is a conscious company. We decide what we do because of our intention, not because of popular opinion. We are a small community of like-minded people following the message of our hearts. We have a purpose—inspiring others to follow their heart, find their dreams, and create the world as they wish to see it. As a conscious company we hope to reflect that every choice we make affects others, from the products we buy to the prices we set. We do not propose telling anyone else what to do, we are conscious of what we do.

As part of our company mission that’s meant to inspire humankind to make a spirit-based shift of perspective, we adopt animals, and help people who need help. All these blessings are bringing more joy, fun and blessings to my family, and to everyone we come in contact with, and to me!
