To dream a dream

To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe.   Anatole France

Dreams can fuel life if they are acted upon.  Take your dream, have you acted upon it?   Have you taken the steps necessary to make that dream come true?

One reason dreams only live in the ephemeral realm of the imagination is they aren’t captured and recorded.   A dream that only lives in the mind is the kind of dream that becomes fantasy.   The dream that is written down can take shape and form and become real.

Some simple steps to take the dream from the imagination to reality would be:

1. Write it down.

2. Reflect upon it.

3. Develop it.

4. Act upon it.

5. Create it.

6. Live it.

What are you doing with your dreams?

Your vision will become clear only when you look into your heart. Who looks outside, dreams. Who looks inside, awakens.   Carl Jung

  1. It feels like there is an implicit amount of “self” control in chasing a dream. What I mean by that is many more factors for acheiving it, are within our control than outside of our control.

    So I believe a contradiction can exist here in that – for a dream to be acheivable…it must be ‘realistic’ but for something to be ‘realistic’ it’s not really a dream….

    But we should never be afraid to take that first step towards our dreams….I’d rather chase those than live the hum-drum of everyday American life.

  2. If we waited for things to fall into the realm of realism would we really be able to reach out and touch the dreams that fuel our desire?
