What role do dreams play in our lives?
Last week, I wrote about turning dreams into reality when it comes to career goals for managers. This week, I’d like to write a few words about the powerful, yet often unacknowledged interconnection between dreams and reality.
Throughout our lives, most of us have been taught that there’s a strict separation between our dreams and reality. Dreams are fantasy and reality is our “real life”.
But if dreams, especially the career goals for managers, are the stuff of fantasies, then what about all of those people whose dreams indeed have come true? We read about them every day. What’s so special about these people?
They clearly see the undeniable interdependence of dreams and reality. They know that dreams can’t even exist, let alone come true, without being part of their everyday reality. They understand that dreams are the ability to visualize themselves in a better situation. And that dreaming is the first concrete step towards planning their journey towards a new, improved life.
So for you to embark on this journey, you must believe in yourself. And with your dreams as a blueprint, you’ll be well on your way.
Enjoy the holiday season!
And always remember:
Great managers are made. Not born.
