Dreams, Goals, and the Power WithinJul 12, 2023
Hey there, dreamers! 👋 Are you ready to embark on a transformative journey towards your dreams? Today, we're diving deep into the difference between dreams and goals, and how they shape our path to success and fulfillment. So, grab a cup of your favorite brew, settle in, and let's explore together! ☕✨
Dreams, my friends, are the big picture—the life we yearn for, the vision that fuels our souls. They are not static or fixed. Instead, dreams evolve and change with us, influenced by our shifting views, values, and experiences. Our dreams are dynamic, always growing or shrinking in tandem with our evolving perspectives on ourselves and our lives. They are far from fragile; rather, they are expansive and adaptable. 🌌💫
But here's the thing: we often hold our dreams tightly, like the character Gollum clutching the "precious" in "The Lord of the Rings." We fear that our dreams might break or disappear, so we become protective and distrusting, even of ourselves. Every setback, ill-fated situation, or unkind word becomes evidence that our dreams are impossible. But here's the truth: these external factors are not related to our dreams. Dreams are open, curious, and exciting. They invite us to explore new possibilities, to hold them lightly and with wonder. 🌈🔍
To truly work towards our dreams, we need to loosen our grip and embrace the journey. Dreams evolve and grow alongside us and our desires. They don't need to be pushed forcefully; instead, they thrive when held lightly. So, how do we do this? Well, it starts with possibility. Speak about your dreams with hope and wonder. Delight in them without the pressure to know exactly how they'll manifest. Picture your dreams visually—vision boards and portfolios are great tools for this! Let your imagination run wild. 🌟🎨
Now, let's talk about goals—the active steps that propel us towards our dreams. Goals provide structure and give us the opportunity to grow and evolve. They act as guideposts on our journey, encouraging us to tune in to ourselves and our capabilities. Goals are our way of working towards who we want to be and achieving what we desire along the way. They help us become accountable to ourselves, honoring our true desires and aspirations, even if each goal serves a tiny purpose in our grand tapestry of life. 🎯🌱
Here's an example to illustrate how dreams and goals intertwine: I have a dream to serve 1000 people in Coach4Life, helping them build self-trust and achieve their goals. If I tightly hold on to that number, fearing I may never reach it, every milestone along the way may seem insignificant. I can't serve 1000 people in Coach4Life until I serve every number between now and 1000 people. And there are so many milestones and lessons available along the way. All of which I turn myself off to when I hold tightly to my dream. I miss the opportunity of who I become at 250 people, 500 people. I don't open myself up to discovering that 700 people served is the perfect number or that something else is born from serving 350 people along the way. I'm still working towards my dream but held lightly I get to learn from myself and my clients along the way to direct how I evolve; thus evolving my dream. I create space for growth and discovery. Each step becomes an opportunity to learn and evolve. 🌠
To get started on your dream journey, set goals that move you forward. Begin by working backward from your dream and identify the very first thing you want to accomplish. Take that first step, and then keep going. Build momentum, and don't let setbacks make you believe your dream is impossible. Instead, view each lesson and experience as a valuable part of your journey. 💪💡
Remember, dreams and goals are not destinations; they're part of a continuous journey filled with lessons and growth. So, my friends, what is one dream you have? How can you hold it lightly and set a goal today that will take you one step closer? Decide ahead of time that this is a journey—one that you'll navigate with resilience, curiosity, and self-trust. 🚀🌈
