IT ALL STARTS WITH A DREAM

January 31, 2011 on 10:20 pm | In Dream Types | No Comments

Dreaming. Do you or don’t you ? Do you dream about the future or just have a fantasy dream after a couple of late night tacos ?

 

Dreams get us going. Dreams direct our lives, our focus our direction.

 

Many of us have forgotten how to dream or haven’t taken the time to dream in years. We get so busy that we never relax our mind and let it dream. Dare I say day-dream ?

 

When we were all kids , we would dream for hours. We had all the time in the world to dream. We had no limits. We had no fears. Short of the “boogie man” we had no idea what fear was.

 

We could lie in the grass, look at the clouds and dream and dream again. Our friends didn’t tell us our dreams were nonsense but instead dreamed BIG dreams at our side !

 

The what happened ? Parents, sport coaches, teachers and sometimes our older friends started to steal pieces of our dreams. We were told we would never make the big league- the pros because we just weren’t good enough. We were told we could never be that famous actor/actress –it would never happen. We were too fat, too short, we couldn’t sing, we couldn’t dance.

 

These dream stealers started to poke holes in our dreams. Then we started to doubt ourselves. When things didn’t work out the way we dreamed, we put up  a wall between daily life and our dreams. Heck, maybe you even just plain gave up but I guarantee that you started to settle. Settle for this. Settle for that ! I guess that it’s not that bad. I guess I can get by, etc. Words we all know. Words that start to steal our dreams.

 

Well it’s time for a change !!

 

It’s time to know and believe in our hearts that DREAMING IS NEVER OPTIONAL !

 

It’s time to dream and then dream again! Dreaming is never optional !

 

There is a famous philosopher- Mr. Mickey Mouse. Mickey tells us “Believe your dreams can come true. Never stop dreaming, and remember anything, anything can happen ! ”

 

It’s time to find some quiet time and just let it all go and start to dream as kid again.

 

 What do you really want ? Forget all about what Mom wanted for you or where you are “stuck” today.

 

One hour, one day of dreaming is not enough. It will take some time to remember just how to dream. It took years for you to forget how to dream so give yourselves some time to remember how. Regardless, it’s time to start dreaming once again !

“Taking the risk to follow our hearts gives energy to our future and breathes life into our dreams”—Debbie Ford

 

Once we know our dreams, goals can be established. Goals that will constantly take you a step closer-even if a small step closer towards your dreams. Goals are a plan to help us realize our dreams. Goals plan the actions that must take place.

 

Dreams and goals are the planning, the thinking , the blueprint of your life. Action is the how ! Action is rolling up your sleeves and going for it !

 

Accomplishing your dreams require;

* Solid clear goals

* Action

* Pursuit

* Persistence

 

Persistence is often the key. Persistence, or as my wife calls it with me “stubbornness”. Call it whatever you want but it is the will to keep going, keep pushing over , around, or though obstacles to get what you truly want in life !

 

Real dreams are what you truly desire deep down. Dreams are worth pursuing. Dreams are worth sacrifice. They are not-I wish! They are not – I want! They are a burning desire to accomplish something or have something.

 

You dreams will happen if you have the courage to pursue them !!

 

 Protect your dreams and the dreams of your love ones. Protect them because they are one of your most valued possessions. Don’t ever let anyone steal your dreams.

 

We have established that dreaming is NEVER optional ! So what are your dreams?? It’s now your turn to dream and dream again !!

 

“If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with success unexpected in common hours.”-Thoreau

 

“ Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed by things you didn’t do than the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” _ Mark Twain
