“All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity; but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dream with open eyes, to make it possible.”
– Thomas Edward Lawrence
Are you the dreamer of the day that the writer Thomas Edward Lawrence is talking about? Are you that dreamer who knows the importance of having a vision for your life? If you want to start creating a vision for your life – I dare you to start dreaming.
Dreams are important for all ages. Dreams encompass our desires and everything we want in our lives. They give us life purpose, direction, and meaning. They have the power to shape our life choices, help us build a pathway towards our future, and give us a sense of control and hope.Dreams are also an expression of our potential and lend voice to our hidden talents. They’re a source of pleasure and help develop the self. And dreams give us the power to change the world, as Martin Luther King, Jr., wrote: “I have a dream!”
Dreamers are the ones who have the courage and creativity to see beyond “what is” to “what can be” to make a difference in their own life and the lives of others.
Life goals are what we envision, dream about, and want to achieve, and they’re much more meaningful than just ‘what we need to accomplish to survive’. Unlike daily routines or short-term objectives, they drive our behaviors over the long run. Our life vision helps us determine what we want to experience in terms of our values.
And because they are personal ambitions, they can take many different forms. But they give us a sense of direction and make us accountable as we strive for happiness and well-being—for our best possible lives.
Are you ready to live your best life? It all starts with being a dreamer – creating a vision for your life.
