It is wonderful to close our eyes and lean back and dream, to dream about our future job, retirement, family or future successes. In those dreams everything is easy and all things work out. Sadly, life can be full of disappointment, struggle and hard work. If we are not careful, our dreams become nothing more than a way to escape from our reality of the day.
I know I have been prone to allow my dreams to be nothing more than an escape from the daily grind that life can become.
How to Engage Your Dream
- See your dreams as a goal to accomplish. Whenever possible break it down into smaller goals that you can act on. The big picture is overrated.
- Take ownership. You are the only one responsible for living out your dreams. No one will be more passionate about them than you so quit looking for someone else’s approval.
- See the value in what you have. Recognize it as a blessing and be thankful. Quit complaining about what you don’t have. (Tweet This) Again, do not let the large scope of your dreams keep you from action.
- Learn to see the important value of the small step. Act on what you can right now in this moment. See every step as an arrival. Each day look for one task or one investment you can put into action towards your dream. (Tweet This)
