Life is a waking dream. -Aristotle
Following your dreams is scary. I get it.
What’s more scary is spending much of our lives searching for the illusion of security. What dreams would you have left behind if you didn’t live tomorrow? Would you regret not following your heart?
Beyond the grind.
The daily grind leads us to believe we should live by the rule of Panem et Cicenses, the Roman concept of bread and circuses; meager games and food to keep the populace entertained whilst powerful men do cruel things behind closed doors.
The monotony makes us think that we should keep our feet on the ground, heads down, mouths shut and our noses to the grindstone. We call this making a living. It’s more like a dying.
I think otherwise; I live by my dreams and can teach you how to do the same.
Escape from cubicle hell.
Not too long ago I wasn’t living my dreams at all. Far from it. I was in the wrong crowd, partying heavily and abusing my body. I worked at a job I hated as a file clerk (I called it file-hell-liaison) and woke up unhappy on a daily basis.
Then I had a wake up call. I partied too much one night and ended up in the hospital. It’s funny how an IV in your arm helps you get your priorities straight.
So I woke up and cleaned up my act. I landed a job in a highly creative environment that reinforces my passions. I married the woman I love and started writing about personal development and how to achieve your dreams. I got really clear about what I wanted and started to come alive.
What I realized is the most effective ways to improve your life are often counter intuitive. They go against conventional wisdom and what’s supposed to work. Now I want to teach you everything I’ve learned that’s brought me to a path of overflowing awesomeness.
Give yourself permission to dream again.
In Reclaim Your Dreams you’ll learn how to resurrect your dreams from the grave of practicality and start making them a reality. Think of your dearest dream. You know, the one that keeps nudging you as you sit in your cubicle (under that beautiful fluorescent lighting). Imagine how it will feel to accomplish your dreams and the impact you will have on this planet.
Can you see yourself getting there? Perhaps not alone, but I can guide you. The first 25 people to buy Reclaim Your Dreams will get a free personal phone, email or chat based coaching session from me on how you can achieve your dreams.
Here are just a few of the things that Reclaim Your Dreams will teach you:
- Define Your Dreams – Dreams are fickle creatures and can sometimes be hard to tie down, but with a little effort you can do it. Identifying is the first step on the way to achieving and this book will give you the tools to do just that.
- Overcome Uncertainty – You probably wonder at some level whether dreams are practical or just ridiculous. You may not necessarily doubt the dream itself, but the uncertainty that comes with working towards it. You fear your limitations. You fear your weaknesses. Reclaim Your Dreams will show you that conventional wisdom is really just a big, fat collective assumption. Dreams are possible and Reclaim Your Dreams will show you step by step just how to make them take root in the world.
- Wake Up Happy – While there are the elusive few like yourself who dare to dream, there are others who would seek to bring you down. You’ll learn how to overcome the naysayers and how to start being excited about your life again.
Very recently I turned down a high-end corporate job — that would have paid me twice my current salary — because I understood it was a dream-suffocating environment. I feel so strongly about my work that I am giving you a complete and utter guarantee:
If Reclaim Your Dreams does not set you down the path of success within 90 days or less, I will give you your money back. I don’t need to hear the reasons, because I know you hold the potential to unlock your dreams. We just need to release it.
You could be totally excited about your life within a few moments.
This ebook lists for $24.95 and it could sell thousands and thousands of copies at that price, but just to further show my commitment to your success for the next 30 days, every single reader will get 20% off the list price. You can purchase Reclaim Your Dreams for only $19.95. Although I’d like to leave it at this price forever, I know human nature too well. It would be noted and forgotten, and another dream would be left unachieved. I don’t want that. That’s why this is a limited time offer, so I encourage you to buy now.
The truth is, you can’t afford not to dream. You can’t afford to let another year slip away without following your heart. You have to start now.
So will you give me permission to show you how to come alive?
Us dreamers could use some company
PS: This book is less than the price of dinner for two at a pretty cheap restaurant. That’s a pretty sweet deal for something that will completely change your life. Imagine waking up excited about your life every day, wouldn’t that be nice?
You have until February 13th to buy at the discounted price of $19.95. After that, the price goes back up.

I just bought your book, and I’ve barely made it past the introduction, and I think it’s more than worth the price.
I’ve been in a creative rut for a long time, and been working to just barely make ends meet. Not really living at all. Looking forward to reading not only what you have to say in your book, but more of this blog so I can go from subsisting to living.
I just wanted to congratulate you on the release of your book. I read the sample chapter and was impressed and intrigued. I know many people who would enjoy this book and will make sure to pass the word along. Wishing you much success this year!

I wasn’t aware of what made you start writing about personal development. Thank you for sharing it. It adds a lot to your already-high credibility.
Congratulations! What an amazing success and dream come true for you. It was an absolute pleasure reading this book; your words cemented lessons I had recently learned and provided inspiration to take those further. I think so many people, no matter where they are in life, can benefit from your experience and thoughts. Thank you, and best of luck!

Counter-intuitive is one thing.
Sometimes we just have the wrong lens on.
CG Walters says
Congratulations on your book, Jonathan!
I agree, living outside one’s dreams is living outside one’s life “more like a dying.”
Continued blessings and inspiration,
Love it so far! And I’m only on the first section!

I’ve long enjoyed your writing and your ability to come across as a genuine person. For that reason, I had to cringe just a bit when you used some of the catch phrases I’ve seen on television “infomercials:”
“That’s right, Reclaim Your Dreams can be yours for only $19.95.”
“…this is a limited time offer, so I encourage you to buy now.”
“…less than the price of dinner for two…”
The ironic part of this is that I stumbled over an infomercial yesterday with my 7-year old son and decided to watch it with him to teach him a lesson. He quickly learned that the infomercial was trying to “trick him” into buying the product by hyping the value for most of the ad time and end it with the “low price” of $19.95.
Perhaps I am being cynical or even a bit unfair but I would not write this comment if I did not admire your writing. I simply believe your talent is too strong and your readers are too smart for you to use these kind of marketing techniques.
With that said, I expect your e-book to be worth much more than even the list price of $24.95. I wish you success with the e-book and I will be happy to review it for you on my blog, if you are interested.
Thanks for carrying the torch in the struggle against conventional thinking…
“I write to keep from going mad from the contradictions I find among mankind – and to work some of those contradictions out for myself.” ~ Michel de Montaigne
No better year than this one to have a fresh start. Change doesn’t have to be a theme for politics alone. Things are tough with economy, but that’s hust another reason to do what you love. Give it a shot.
I am sure its worth more than the price listed, bit still I ask this:
How does this apply for us over here in the EU?
Is the price the same or should I expect some heavy taxing?

Congrats on your book!
I have been following your blog and it is natural result of the hard work you have been putting in it.
I wish you great success and then please share with us how you made it to the top so we can practice this too ;)
Just wanted to say that I love reading your blog, it’s the perfect anti-productivity advice. I was addicted to those over the top life-hack blogs, I was so concerned about making everything the most organized and perfect it became too stressful and a negative impact in my life. Then I read your posts and I love your philosophy on just saying fuck it. It just makes too much sense. Can’t wait to read your book. Keep up the awesome writing.
