What would you do if you knew you could not fail? What would you do with your life if you had all the time and money you needed?
This Monday we were lucky enough to host a dinner with the founder of kikki.K, Kristina Karlsson, as well as Oprah Winfrey’s all-time favourite guest, Dr. Tererai Trent – celebrating Kristina’s first book ‘Your Dream Life Starts Here’.
Kristina believes that no dream is too big or small and she encourages readers to stop and dream without limitation. Dreaming is something that she has always been passionate about, but it wasn’t until she wrote down a list of what she wanted out of life that she allowed herself to dream big and start to create her dream life. It was a big dream that was the first step on her journey to build kikki.K into what it is today.
She now dreams to inspire 101 million people around the world to create, write down and start actualising three dreams of their own. In her book she shares her personal experiences, including many notable personalities such as Arianna Huffington, Richard Branson and Stella McCartney who among others have lent their support of Kristina’s vision to create a Dream Life movement.
“Once taught, dreaming without limitation is so simple, so fundamentally powerful and has been proven through the ages, as the common starting point for people who transform the future, for themselves in big ways and small,” Karlsson says.
Every purchase of Karlsson’s book will see a $1 donated to Tererai Trent International – a foundation established by Dr Tererai Trent. Funds raised will build on the generous foundational support she received from Oprah Winfrey and support Tererai’s dream to provide universal access to quality education for children, regardless of their gender or socioeconomic backgrounds.
Dr. Trent says that if you want something so badly and you have a vision to change your life, when you write it down it becomes ingrained in your thoughts.
“It can be manifested because your mind and your thoughts and your feelings become focused on that vision. Dreaming is so powerful and I have no doubt Kristina’s book will inspire millions and make a big difference in the world. I am so proud to partner with Kristina and kikki.K, and am so grateful for their contribution to my foundation,” Trent says.
The #PushTEAM has been dreaming in the Push PR HQ this week – inspired by Kristina’s UK visit. Read below what we are dreaming about at Push!
“The dream would be to win MasterChef. For as long as I can remember I’ve always enjoyed cooking for people, whether it’s an amazing cake or a three course meal for friends. To see everyone enjoying a good meal that I’ve made, makes me so happy!” – Katharine Watson, Lifestyle Director
“I have always loved travel (flashback to my childhood obsession with Holiday and Wish You Were Here!!), photography and writing. Honestly, the dream is a sabbatical in Buenos Aires learning Spanish before travelling through Latin America and settling in a hacienda in Mexico! I could practice photography and swim with turtles and dolphins. When I was last in Mexico, I started dreaming about launching a production company for fashion shoots – it could happen!” – Pippa Robertson, Fashion Director
“I would build homes for homeless and underprivileged people around the world, open performing arts/sports schools across the world for young children to discover their talents, buy houses for all my family and friends, and travel the world with them AND buy all the designer brands so I could shop endlessly. Haha!” – Nafisah Boateng, Junior Jewellery Account Manager
“I want to shop, eat cheese and drink wine.” – Astrid Mallet,
“I want to host wellness retreat – it’s been a dream of mine for a few years and I’ve finally taken the first step this year by training as a personal trainer. Next I want to do my yoga 200 hours and fingers crossed I’ll keep inching towards my dream and make it into a reality soon…” – Camilla Allpress, Junior Lifestyle Account Manager
“I wish everyone to be happy all the time!” – Rosi Cooke, Beauty Coordinator
“When I was little, after seeing Charlie’s Angels (Cameron Diaz version obvs), I was obsessed with becoming a spy! I think it was because they were in really cool fight scenes while also wearing great outfits!” – Sasha Kean, PR Coordinator
“Firstly I would travel the whole world. My dream life would be having a super chilled life in a beautiful home in LA or somewhere sunny! Sitting out by the beach at night to feel relaxed.” – Emily Hall, Showroom Manager
“I wish not to be sick anymore next week!” – Georgina Robertson, Beauty Account Manager
“I’m dreaming of taking my family on a vacation to show them how much they mean to me!” – Sara Laitinen, Social Content Executive
