Reclaiming Your Dreams with Dr. Marcia Morgan


“I think women in particular often adjust their dreams to fit their circumstances rather than adjusting their circumstances to fit their dreams.”

Dr. Marcia Morgan brings a wealth of experience helping women reach their potential. Drawing on more than forty years as a national consultant, researcher, trainer and author on gender and crime, this sought-after motivational speaker and best selling author tackles the casualties of women’s dreams, and presents tools on how to recapture those dreams, in her latest book for women and girls, called “GO! How to Get Going and Achieve your Goals and Dreams at Any Age.”

Marcia has such an interesting perspective on goal-setting, one that combines the best of techniques like mindfulness, visualization, and tenacious planning – pulled from the worlds of sports, business, and personal development – and from cultures all over the world.



  • The concept of “dream drain,” what it is, and why it shows up for women more often than for men
  • Why women tend to think of goals as a zero-sum game, and how that gets in the way of their reaching them
  • The three most important ingredients for successfully reaching your goals, pulled from Marcia’s extensive (and global) research from the worlds of sports, business, and personal development
  • How having a “goal object” in your home or office might just be the key to achieving your dreams
  • A shortcut to figuring out what you want in the first place
  • The top barriers that get in the way of women reaching their goals (including “the P word”)
  • How to learn from your failures instead of giving up on your dreams
  • The end of year ritual that helps Marcia celebrate what she’s accomplished and  get clear about what she wants for the new year
