ï»¿What is dream?
Why do we dream ?
What is your dream? Will you achieve your dream in your lifetime? I'm certain that you desire to. I'm sure you hope you will.
But will you actually do it? What odds would you give yourself? One in five? One in a hundred? One in a million? How can you
tell whether your chances are good or whether your dream will always remain exactly thatâ€”a dream? And are you willing
to put it to the test?
Most people I know have a dream. In fact,
Iâ€™ve asked hundreds, if not thousands, of
people about their dream. Some willingly
describe it with great detail and enthusiasm.
Others are reluctant to talk about it. They
seem embarrassed to say it out loud. ...view middle of the document...
The more questions
you can answer positively, the greater the
likelihood of success!
The Right and Wrong Picture of
Iâ€™ve studied successful people for almost
40 years. Iâ€™ve known hundreds of high-profile people who achieved big dreams. And
Iâ€™ve achieved a few dreams of my own. What
Iâ€™ve discovered is that a lot of people have
misconceptions about dreams. Take a look
at many of the things that people pursue and
call dreams in their lives:
Pie-in-the-Sky Dreamsâ€”Wild ideas
with no strategy or basis in reality
Bad Dreamsâ€”Worries that breed fear
Idealistic Dreamsâ€”The way the world
would be if you were in charge
Vicarious Dreamsâ€”Dreams lived
Romantic Dreamsâ€”Belief that some
person will make you happy
Career Dreamsâ€”Belief that career
success will make you happy
Destination Dreamsâ€”Belief that
a position, title or award will make
Material Dreamsâ€”Belief that wealth or
possessions will make you happy
If these arenâ€™t good dreamsâ€”valid ones
worthy of a personâ€™s lifeâ€”then what are?
Here is my definition of a dream that can be
put to the test and will pass: A dream is an
inspiring picture of the future that energizes
your mind, will and emotions, empowering
you to do everything you can to achieve it.
A dream worth pursuing is a picture and
blueprint of a personâ€™s purpose and potential.
Or as my friend Sharon Hull says, â€œA dream
is the seed of possibility planted in the soul of
a human being, which calls him to pursue a
unique path to the realization of his purpose.â€
