Often we are shy to speak about our dreams for one reason or another. So we keep our dreams safe in the secrecy of our heads and hearts. This is a tempting course, but it can constrain our dreams from growing to their full potential.
Think about how much more powerful our dreams become when we speak them out loud, celebrate them, and take responsibility for them.
When other people know our dreams we give them an opportunity to become part of our dreams and we also inspire them to proclaim their dreams.
To role model what I’m saying, I’ll share one of my dreams with you.
This dream of mine will only take a sentence to say and yet I almost don’t want say it for fear of what you might think about my dream. (The fear that often keeps us quiet about our dreams isn’t necessarily rational, but it is there.)
Ok, here it goes. I have a dream of being a millionaire many times over, a millionaire financially speaking, as well as, a millionaire in body, mind and spirit.
Wow! Now I can breathe a sigh of relief. My dream only took a sentence to say and now my dream is out there in the world. (And my dream is not only out there in the world, it is out there in the world in BOLD 14 point font.)
We can literally breathe fresh life into our dreams by proclaiming them out loud to our family, friends and co-workers.
(And wouldn’t the people who surround us rather hear about our dreams than our complaints anyway?)
And as an amazing bonus, We Inspire the People We Love and Care About to Share Their Dreams!
(How AWESOME is that!)
Game of the Day
Think about one of your dreams.
How can you state your dream simply and clearly?
Do you have a hesitation about sharing this dream with others?
What would it be like to overcome this hesitation?
What would be some of the benefits of sharing your dreams with others?
If you choose to, who would you share your dream with?
