Of all the skills I’ve learned in my three decades of Dream Coaching, this one is the most important. To master manifestation, you must master the skill of enrollment. “Enrollment” means your ability to share your dreams, products, services, and ideas in a way that will inspire others to join you, hire you, and perhaps even invest in you. The common obstacle of “I don’t have enough money” often disappears when you become good at enrollment. If the best shortcut step for accomplishing your dreams is to build a team, then the key skill you need to develop is enrollment.
In all your interactions, be highly intentional, explore all possibilities, and make every conversation count. This does not mean that you should see everyone as a tool to use for your own benefit. Rather, see everyone as a fellow traveler on the road making their dreams come true. Like you, they are always looking for inspiration, encouragement, an uplifting view, a new idea, or a refreshing way to view the world around them. By sharing your own gifts, dreams, and opportunities, you will open up amazing conversations with others—and who knows where that could lead both of you. One of my daily practices is to enroll people in believing in themselves. I do this by seeing their beauty and greatness, and then openly acknowledging it with them.
What do I get in return? I feel loved as I practice being loving and generous. How simple it is to lift another up simply by recognizing their greatness. And, since we are connected, the more I admire and appreciate them, the more I feel appreciated and loved in return. Enrollment requires that you learn to speak like a visionary. A visionary has a big dream, articulates it with clarity so people get it, expresses it with passion so others get excited about it, and enrolls/invites others to join him or her. To be a successful enroller, you need to find your genuine voice and express the truth of who you are, what you believe, and what’s in your heart. Enrollment happens when you express what matters to you and why you care—and you show others why they should, too.
