This Week´s Inspiration

Dare to Dream!

Dream: Joy; a series of thoughts, images, or emotions; something notable for its beauty, excellence, or enjoyable quality

Uncertainty of belief or opinion; a condition causing hesitation; to lack confidence in

Today I want to encourage all of you to have some fun by expanding your dreams.

Children have endless imagination and dreams. Educators have confirmed through research that those children who take part in more imaginary play have increased confidence and problem-solving skills. That’s why TV can be a negative element in children’s lives; it eliminates their need to imagine.

Dreams and doubts are forms of thought or opinion, not fact. As we grow up, many of us lose the childlike ability to fantasize. We become more pragmatic and hide behind the adult notion of being realistic. 

Dreams are hindered by doubt so, for this moment, I am asking you to take a journey of dreams—your dreams—and to fight off any doubt that might raise its nasty head. 

Dreams attract opportunities; doubt repels them. Together, let’s attract.

For this very instant, there are no limits or restrictions on your dreams or your resources to achieve them. 

First, dreams—your dreams—are your birthright; I want you to own your dreams. I have discovered over the past 20 years that dreams are very personal—and we don’t usually hold dreams that we cannot achieve. Give yourself credit that your dreams are really your desires and that they are possible. 

To get everyone in the right frame of mind, here’s a poem by 13th Century poet Rumi. 

You were born with potential.
You were born with trust.
You were born with ideals and dreams.
You were born with greatness.
You were born with wings.
You were not meant for crawling, so don’t.
You have wings.
Learn to use them to fly.

Dreams can assume the forms of doing, being, and having.

If you knew you could not fail, what would you do

  1. What have you not done that you would like to do?
    Here are some thought-starters.
    • Travel: Where would you like to go that you have not traveled?
    • Activities: What new activity would you like to do?
    • Accomplishments: Would you like to write a book, a song, a play or volunteer or start a new business?
    • Other?

Stop, think, and dream about them now.

  1. What would you like to be, by developing yourself to become a better, more complete, and fulfilled person?
    • What areas of knowledge would you like to acquire?
    • What skills would you like to develop?
    • What disciplines would you like to master?
    • What can you do to be more healthy and fit?
    • Other?

Stop, think, and dream about those things now.

  1. What would you like to have?

The options are endless—homes, cars, boats, art, and other material things.

Make sure you are thinking about your dreams, not ones placed upon you by other people or society. 

Now, feel you already have achieved your dreams. Reflect on the emotions that brings up. 

Do you really want each dream to become reality? 
If you do, keep it. If not, let it go. 

Stop, think, and visualize about your third list now. Remember, you cannot fail.

  • Take the time to write out your dream list
  • Review it often. Update it, refine it, and expand it.

You’ll find that the more you dream, the more you will dream. Abundance begets abundance. 

If you think this approach is too over-the-top and you’re finding it challenging to accept, here’s your homework. 

  • Engage as many individuals as possible in the next week and encourage them in their dreams.
  • Support them even in their simplest desires. 
  • Pay attention to how that simple act of kindness can spur you to own your own dreams.

Dreams play into a person’s strengths, gifts, values, talents, and abilities. To assist you on this journey, I recommend the following four resources. 

The greatest gift you can give others is for you to continually expand your dreams and your thinking. That encourages others to do the same. When you help others embrace their dreams, you will discover that yours will expand, too.

This Week´s Action Steps

Dare to Dream

  1. Are you inspired by your dreams or your doubt?
  2. Doubt and dreams rarely occupy the same space so, for these steps, dare to dream.
  3. If you knew you could not fail, what dreams would you embrace?
  4. What dreams have you given up that you need to revive?
  5. Make a list of all the things you would Do, Be, or Have? To make your list, review the details provided in this ezine.
  6. Imagine for a moment that your dreams are coming to pass. How does that make you feel? Can you notice your increased energy and inspiration?
  7. Write out your dream list. Review it often; give yourself permission to continue to refine and update it.
  8. Make sure that everything on your dream list is really yours. If you have no positive emotions toward a dream, ensure it’s your dream and not something that society or someone else has influenced you to want. If it is not your dream, please remove it from your list.
  9. Get crystal clear about your values, gifts, and talents by engaging the following CRG resources: Values Preference Indicator, Self Worth Inventory, My Source EXPERIENCE Journal™, and Personal Style Indicator. They will help you get clear about your dreams.
  10. The greatest gift is to encourage others in their dreams and desires. If you ever feel doubt about your own dreams, step out and help others embrace their dreams. That will be a blessing for them and you will equally benefit in your own journey.
  11. Dreams are not just for children; they are for everyone—including you!

Until next time, keep Living On Purpose!.
