Our dreams are the visions that shape our lives. Do you know what your dreams are? Have you stopped dreaming? Sometimes we do. At different points in our journey, both professionally and personally, it is easy to get so caught up in surviving that we stop dreaming. When we stop dreaming, we slowly begin to disengage from our work, from our relationships, and from life itself.
For more than a decade now, I have kept a Dream Book. I don't remember exactly how I came to this idea, but I do remember walking through a bookstore in Sydney in the early '90s and coming across a journal with thick, rough pages. I purchased it, though at the time I did not know why, as I had never kept a journal. As I flew to London a few days later, this simple journal was transformed into what I now call my Dream Book.
Since then, I have filled the pages with dreams. It is not a book of essays. On most pages, there is just one word or one phrase or one picture. The pages are filled with places I want to visit, personal and professional goals I want to accomplish, qualities I want to develop in my character, quotes that inspire me, the occasional fortune-cookie messages, pictures torn from magazines of things I would like to own someday, hopes and dreams for the various organizations I am involved with, adventures I would like to take, the legacy I would like to create, and much more.
I am constantly amazed at how this simple process begins the manifestation of my dreams.
Get yourself a Dream Book.
Start writing down your dreams.
Dream without limits.
Date your dreams as you add them to your Dream Book.
Date them again when you achieve them.
In time, you will look back on dreams you thought were impossible when you wrote them down and be amazed at the ease with which they were finally accomplished... and you will marvel at how much you have advanced in the journey.
