The Dangers of Not Dreaming

May 31, 2008
Why are so many people at a loss about how to live the life of their dreams?

For a start most people give up on their dreams, trading them in for and accepting what life hands them on a daily basis. They lose track of what they had dreamt for in their lives, they compromise, they lose faith and ignore their passions and ultimately abandon their dreams on the sideline of their lives.

They land up creating a mediocre life through limitations that they themselves create through their negative beliefs and habits which detract from the life they desire and instead create the life they don't really want, but which they accept, justifying it usually by comparing their lives to others and saying to themselves it is the same with them or my life is better than theirs.

The limitation of this mindset manifests itself in people focusing merely on making enough money to pay their bills and this pattern repeats itself throughout the lives, a vicious cycle more a kin to running on a hamster wheel!

This is definitely not what live is all about and deep down all people know this. People have a far greater potential than they usually give themselves credit for, they can achieve far greater and more significant dreams and goals they ever thought they were capable of and this inherent potential in us will always be present and speak to us whether we choose to listen to it or not, constantly reminding us of the dissatisfaction we feel deep down, where it counts.

Living like this is simply a choice and it all starts with believing that there is a better way, there always is. It starts with dreaming of a better future and trusting that this is possible for you and that you are capable of creating this life.

As John Rohn, one of the 50 famous personal development speakers at Success University said - Happiness is not something you postpone for the future; it is something you design for the present. So in order to create your dream future you need to start designing it today. And before you begin designing it, you need to know what it is you want to create, you will need to dream a bit. The good news is that it is not painful and it is free!

Dream a little and start implementing some changes, little ones to begin with. The more you pursue your dreams, the more you will find inspiration and energy to continue onwards and upwards. However don't hold back on the size of your dreams - the bigger the dreams the more inspiration and energy you get so don't dream small - as W. Clement Stone said - Aim for the moon. If you miss, you may hit a star.
