Turning Your Dreams Into Goals

Aug 17, 2007
Do you dream and are really interested in turning your dreams into reality? You can start by jotting down your dreams clearly. While writing, dont judge the dreams, you should just keep jotting down whatever comes to your mind. Remember the human mind can achieve whatever conceived!

An example to prove this fact would be the example of Dr Robert Schuler, who dreamt of building a Crystal Cathedral in Santa Ana, a place prone to earthquakes. In the 80s, he invited a famous architect to design the Cathedral for him. The architect after understanding the concept was very skeptical about building a glass structure in that area, as it would cost a fortune. Dr Schuler did not have the money to build it, but for him the word impossible never existed and finally, he did build the Crystal Cathedral.

Everyone can turn their dreams into goals, but for that you have to be outrageous and think big. You can achieve it, if you want it. A dream is an abstract goal and it is wonderful to have dreams. You can transform your dream into an achievable goal by simply clarifying it and providing the details, so as to make it clear to visualize. During the course of our lives struggles we forget our dreams and we fear pursuing them because we forget that nothing is impossible.

The main reason for this is that we have been programmed for mediocrity and refuse to believe that we are capable of a lot. To dare to do something new we have to come out of our comfort zone and that requires tremendous courage. We feel safe in doing things, which we already know, even if the situation is miserable.

If you visualize what you dream and stretch beyond the set boundaries, then you may be able to come out of your comfort zone. Imagination is the root of everything and the most powerful tool to succeed. Unless you imagine yourself being richer, happier and healthier, the chance of accomplishing a quality lifestyle is impossible. Your brain directs you to pursue the action only after it sees the results of your actions. We are blessed with imaginative powers during childhood, but in due course of life this imagination fades out.

We can dare to dream and achieve only if we practice and write down our visions. Regaining your imagination and picturing something is possible. Successful people who have dared to dream and who have achieved their goals had three things in common:

. They knew what they wanted and started pursuing their dreams, keeping the end result in mind.
. People who dared to be different and pursue their dreams were also people who believed in themselves.
. They pursued their dreams in spite of their fears, doubts and family apprehensions.

Always remember that dreams are yours and it is your life, so dare to go further and gain new experiences. Act now and move ahead and turn your dreams into your goals, as you can achieve anything in this world if your dare to dream and pursue.
