I’ve heard people say “Ideas are cheap if you don’t do anything with them.” I do agree, however what are actions if you don’t dream about them first?
A friend of mine and I were going back a fourth last night about feeling stuck, not knowing how to get to the next great thing, and overall lack of direction. We talked about great adventures, really living your life, and what it is going to take to get there. We both have adventurous spirits, but have found ourselves in careers that can be classified as “a good job” or “moving up like you’re supposed to do.” There comes a point when you realize that in order to live the life you want, you have to start dreaming about what it could be. Dream about the endless possibilities and let your mind go on an adventure beyond what you could have ever imagined.
We must dream beyond the boundaries we set for ourselves to come back to something we’re ready for. This doesn’t mean we aren’t capable, it means giving that dream value, context, and preparing for the journey. Start with dreams, make them goals, then go after them.
