Honor your Story: Imagine your Dreams
Everyone has a story; a story that influences the way we perceive and function in life. What if your story is holding you back, keeping your from imagining your goals and dreams?
Life is more challenging than ever. Why let an old story get in the way of achieving what you desire most in life. Resilience comes from understanding our own abilities, cultivating empathy, courage, and compassion within. You will be inspired to move through that old, negative story and find that authentic, extraordinary you!
Imagining your dreams is about honoring your story and writing a new story.
- Find compassion for yourself and others.
- Recognize the old story that doesn’t support you.
- Quickly acknowledge, embrace and move away from the negative blocks that your old story ties you to.
- Reconnect to the extraordinary person underneath your old story.
- Write a new story.
- Take your new story and put it into action.
- Live life as your authentic self.
Giving the Next Generation a Voice for Positive Change
After publishing her book, The Imagine Project: Stories of Courage, Hope and Love, Dianne realized the power in telling your story beginning each sentence with, “Imagine..”. She wondered if this process would help kids and teen deal with their own adversity. Dianne created a 6-step journal that gives kids a voice and a tool to cope with this challenging world.
Dianne now travels across the country listening to the challenges and the remarkable perseverance of our youth today. Listening to these stories will give you hope and inspiration as well as the tools to bring back to your own communities for helping children of all ages.

We all have the capacity to become extraordinary in our lives, yet we often don’t feel worthy or capable. Dianne demonstrates how you can let go of your old negative habits and take advantage of new possibilities in your life. Through her own story, and those of the countless people she has interviewed and met through her work with The Imagine Project, she Illustrates that everyone has the opportunity to change and improve, no matter what your life obstacles might be. Dianne emphasizes the importance of three pillars of transformation:
- Everyone has a story.
- Writing down your own story, in a simple, elegant fashion, helps break through your resistance allows possibilities to take shape.
- Managing your thoughts is key to changing your life.
