“The man who has no imagination has no wings.”
What would you do if you knew your dreams had no limits? How far would your dream(s) take you? Who would you become? Who would be? Who would be affected by your dream(s), if it were manifested?
I’ve always been a big dreamer with an equally huge imagination.
For many years, I did myself the greatest disservice that dreamers can do to themselves. I believed the “Dream Stoppers” in my life.
“Huh? The what?”
You read that right, the Dream Stoppers.
The Most Common “Dream Stoppers”
- “That’s not possible.”
- “It can’t be done.”
- “No one we know has ever done that.”
- “Who do you think you are to believe you could do something like that?”
- “You may want to think on a smaller scale.”
- “I don’t have the resources to make that happen.”
- “You’re from the “other side” of the tracks.”
- “You never went to college, you can’t do that.”
Oftentimes, when we dream or make goals, we don’t take into consideration what we are telling ourselves about the vision. This is a HUGE MISTAKE!
Instead, we listen to the Dream Stoppers and believe the limitations and boundaries that have been placed on the dream; instead of believing in ourselves enough to make the dream a reality.
Dreams are merely thoughts. Aren’t they?
So if that’s the case, your dream(s) has as much, or as little, power that you give to it.
Master Life Lesson: Dreams aren’t limited. People limit their dreams. The limits are only fabrications in the person’s minds that they’ve attached to the dream and now believe to be true.
So don’t be afraid to dream. If you have been given a dream, you were given a vision from a Source Higher than yourself. And if you believe this to be true, you should also believe that you have been fully equipped to carry the dream into its fruition.
Don’t believe the Dream Stoppers. Go beyond what the Dream Stoppers are telling you about your dream.
Nothing can keep you from making your dream come true, but you. You are the key, as well as your greatest obstacle.
Here’s a few other things to keep in mind:
- Dream Big!
Wherever your dream wants to take you, GO!
- Dream with a lot of emphasis on the details. Be Specific.
Create a vision board, and place images of what you want on the board. Place it somewhere you will see it every day.
- Discernment is a Friend of Dreamers
Learn how to discern who to share your dream with. Everyone won’t be happy that you’ve found the courage to go after your dreams. Treat your dream like a baby that’s being hunted by a deranged baby killer. I know… that sounds sort of graphic, but I guarantee you, you’ll think twice before you share your dreams with people who have no vision for themselves.
- Be willing to make changes.
You will definitely change once you get serious about going after your dreams. There’s no avoiding that. Therefore, you should leave enough “changing room” for your dreams also.
- Be patient and willing to wait it out.
I’ve learned to never rush anything in life. When “it” is meant to happen, it will happen. Rushing what isn’t yet meant to be, causes nothing but frustration, stress, illness, and misery. Become at peace with waiting.
- Compete with only yourself.
No one can keep you away from what is meant to be. What’s yours, is yours. Therefore, the only person you need to compete with is the person you were yesterday.
- Lastly, trust and believe in yourself and in your dreams.
No one will trust in you and believe in you like you can. So forgive yourself, trust yourself, and always believe in yourself.
