Coaching for Success:
The Reality of Dreams
Pat Kilgannon, success coach,
realized a dream 15 years ago when she launched her executive coaching
business, Success Coaching. Over the years, the Doylestown-based business
coach has enabled professionals to harness the power of dreams to move
their businesses forward.
Whether they were embarking on a
dream to launch a new business or losing sight of their dreams in the
midst of running a demanding business, Pat was there to encourage them to
“dream of success and achieve no less.”
“Dreams play an important role
in business and life,” Pat explained, “Dreams are imaginative
interpretations of what we can make happen, giving us a framework to
change our present situation for the better.”
The executive coach recognizes
dreams for their ability to enable individuals to grow. She believes
dreaming allows you to tap into a part of your consciousness that might
otherwise be silent or shut off and foster creativity.
“Dreams allow you to stretch
beyond what is known and expose ideas you are often unaware that have been
inside you all along,” Pat explained.
Dreaming is helpful when you
need to break out of stale, established patterns of thinking and develop
new ways of looking at things or develop new opportunities.
“Because it causes you to
stretch beyond your usual way of thinking, dreaming makes it hard, if not
impossible, for you to snap back to where we were before. You have
grown.” Pat commented.
Charged with the mission of
asking her clients to truly live their dreams, Ms. Kilgannon is sponsoring
an essay contest that asks participants to stretch their imagination and
write about their dreams. The entrant who can identify the dreams they
have of future success and explain how a business coach can help them
foster their dreams into reality, will win 15 free coaching sessions with
Pat. Email essay submissions to email@example.com.
While the dream state is a wonderful place to visit, Pat cautions that it
is not a place you want to live.
“Dreams in and of themselves
have great possibility but they are just a fantasy unless you put some
planning and action behind them,” Pat said.
The executive coach echoes Henry
David Thoreau’s sage advice, “If you have built castles in the air, your
work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the
foundation under them.”
“Many very smart people have some great dreams that go nowhere because
they just stay in the dream state and never getting to the doing,” Pat
