Do you have a big dream? Or even a big goal? Do you know the difference? My definition is that in a goal, I know the steps on how to get from here to there, but a dream it’s just that, a wish for the future, I’m not quite sure how to reach. What’s your definition? Now, mind I’m not saying my goals are all achieved because sometimes I don’t actually take the steps, but I do recognize what it would take to get from point A to point D. I recognize the B and C steps. A dream, not so much. It is usually bigger and I need to get from point A to point L or M, and I usually know 2 or 3 steps on the way, but the rest is all a big question mark with faith attached. Sooo, are you taking the steps to make your life what you truly want?
I remember a class from a great speaker that likened a dream coming true to driving a car. First you have to find the right one; you know, the one that fits and feels really good when you test drive it. You may have to try out a few in order to find the right one for you. You may look at the price tag on the dream and put off going for it, or you may decide, no, this is it. So, you buy the car – buy into the dream. When you sit in the car for the first time your dream feels fully realized, but if you don’t have gas – the energy to get the dream going, you still are going nowhere. Then you need to actually start the car. Oh, and put it in gear and apply the accelerator…You get it – we need to do the steps to get our dream moving forward. But if you don’t choose a destination and then Google map it, you may take lots of wrong turns or end up at a totally different place than where you wanted to be; especially if you listen to the back seat drivers telling you how to drive and where to turn. So pick a destination; find that dream, be clear about where you want to be, and then put your dream in gear and Google map it.
