I learned this, at least, by my experiment: that if one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.
You have a dream, and you know what it is. Most of us do. In the months that I have been speaking to groups about the Dream Into It concept, I have met only one person who claimed that he had no dream. The truth was that he believed his situation impossible. He was afraid to dream.
It may be helpful to ask yourself a few questions that can stir up a dormant dream. Take a look back, even to childhood. What was it that captured your heart then? What have you “always” wanted to do? What is it that comes easy to you, but that others find difficult? What would you love to spend your time doing, if only you didn’t have to work all the time at something else?
There are two important considerations here. First, don’t think that you have to come up with your absolute-all-time-best dream ever. Any dream will do to get started. Chances are that it will change as you go. The important thing is to begin. Next, it is absolutely crucial that your dream be your dream. Someone else’s dream won’t do. It won’t be able to sustain you through the rough spots. If you choose your direction, based upon what would impress other people, the end result will be resentment. Don’t do that to you. Don’t do that to them.
Spend a little time with it. What is your dream? What is there that seems unreachable, but that you just can’t let go of? What would make you happy and fulfilled. It is not money. Money may be a result of finding and living your purpose, but it is not your purpose.
