If you don’t have a dream, how are you going to make it come true?” Walt Disney
Do you realize that whatever you see around you began as a dream?
From the pen or pencils we use every day, the chair you are probably sitting in right now, your favorite kitchen gadget, to the architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright, the Ford Mustang parked outside, and the shows you are currently binge-watching on Netflix – these things existed first in the imagination of the artist, designer or writer. Before getting sketched on paper or noted on the back of a cocktail napkin, each began as a dream in someone’s studio, garage or design room.
Some believe everything began as a dream, not just the man-made stuff.
Dr. Martin Luther King had one, he dreamt that his nation would one day rise “and live out the true meaning of its creed – that all men are created equal”.
John F. Kennedy had one too, in 1962 he dreamt of “landing a man on the moon and returning him safely to earth before this decade is out.” His dream seemed outrageous when he first proposed it but 5 years later, in 1969 JFK’s dream came true when Neil Armstrong took the very first step on to the moon.
The message today? Follow your dream, trust your inner wisdom, that voice inside you that talks to you every day. But before you can follow your dream you have to create one.
Do you have a dream?
If not, what’s holding you back? How is your habit of Self-doubt, overthinking, overanalyzing keeping you away from it? Perhaps you are stuck in thinking that you don’t have what it takes or you are waiting for that “perfect” time to arise before you step into action.
If you have realized your dream (AND YOU DO, WE ALL DO), what small action are you taking every day toward it?
Now go out there and make it a great day for yourself ~
