In Hot Water
If you have ever watched just 10 minutes of the Olympics, then you understand the power of a dream. Don’t underestimate how dreaming in vivid colors (while you’re awake!) can define the quality of your life.
For many of us, setting goals is a standard practice in our business. But how many of us set out to see our DREAMS become reality?
Remember when we were kids? We were told we could be and do anything we wanted. The sky was the limit. We didn’t know how we were going to get there but we knew what we wanted. We heard it over and over again, “If you can dream it, you can achieve it”. Then we became an adult. And somewhere around the age of 21, we started hearing “wake up kid and welcome to the real world.” We were brainwashed to believe that “Dreamers” just had their heads in the clouds! We were told to think negatively about the Dreamers because they were not focused on success.
Well, I can tell you that I have woken up and I know that my dreams ARE the key to my success! That is my real world. I belive that Dreamers design their life and then act to make those dreams come true. They believe that anything is possible. They are inspired by those dreams to be and do their best.
Are you a dreamer? Do you allow yourself to think BIG? What would your life look like if you were living each day to make your dreams a reality? What are your dreams? We all have them, but sometimes we try to talk ourselves right out of the dream. As if we don’t believe it is possible.
How do you recognize your dream? First, take a look at your life as it is today. Where do you find your joy? Everything you do should be aimed at making yourself happy. Your level of happiness should not be measured by what you have but rather by who you are. You have to believe that you have the right to be happy and your dreams often hold the key to that happiness. Focus more on your possibilities and less on your limitations. Share your dreams. Talk about them. You have more support than you can imagine. You might also discover other Dreamers in your midst!
Wake up and start dreaming! As funny as it might sound at first, you certainly know what I mean. Wake up to the power you have to create the life of your dreams – to create your future through everything you think, feel, say and do. Your choices will design your life. Tremendous freedom comes from discovering our true self.
