Dreams, Dreams, Dreams.10:00 PM
I don't care how big, how extreme or how nonsensical it may seem. I feel like most people have some particular thing that they would like to do or accomplish in their life. I mean all of us are wanting of something we would like to reach or to happen in our life.
Let's be realistic though the only thing we can do sometime is to daydream because daydreaming helps us to a certain degree, but let's not spend our whole day daydreaming. It can bovver us in a way but that drive us to achieve and work harder to attain our goal.
But honestly I find it that not all of us has a dream because others live life at their very best everyday so that when it is over they will have had a good life instead of working to achieve something that in all probability will not bring lasting happiness.
So, there are really lots of things in knowing what really dreams are. We also have our own way of achieving it though most people have no idea how to achieve their dreams. What they possess is a vague notion that there is something they would like to do someday or someone they would like to become. But they don’t know how to get from here to there. If that describes you, then you’ll be glad to know that there really is hope.
Dreams are valuable commodities. They propel us forward. They give us energy. They make us enthusiastic. I have a lot of dreams and sometimes I go crazy of thinking the things since I can play the possibilities in my mind.
I dream of writing my own book, be a star, have my own billboard, be an endorser but above all I still wanted to become a Math Professor in a very high standard University in the country; biggest dream in life indeed and for sure if that dream come true, everything will follow and fall into place.
I already read lot of books and articles online and one of the stuff I read is from Put Your Dream to the Test: 10 Questions That Will Help You See It and Seize It (Thomas Nelson, 2008); so here's an excerpt from that.
The Right and Wrong Picture of a Dream
I’ve studied successful people for almost 40 years. I’ve known hundreds of high-profile people who achieved big dreams. And I’ve achieved a few dreams of my own. What I’ve discovered is that a lot of people have misconceptions about dreams. Take a look at many of the things that people pursue and call dreams in their lives:
- Daydreams—Distractions from current work
- Pie-in-the-Sky Dreams—Wild ideas with no strategy or basis in reality
- Bad Dreams—Worries that breed fear and paralysis
- Idealistic Dreams—The way the world would be if you were in charge
- Vicarious Dreams—Dreams lived through others
- Romantic Dreams—Belief that some person will make you happy
- Career Dreams—Belief that career success will make you happy
- Destination Dreams—Belief that a position, title or award will make you happy
- Material Dreams—Belief that wealth or possessions will make you happy
If these aren’t good dreams—valid ones worthy of a person’s life—then what are? Maybe I'll end this post by asking you all What your dreams are? and How will you achieve it?
