Embrace incredible dreams and talk about them all the time
You won’t achieve anything exceptional or do incredible things unless and until you embrace an incredible dream. This dream has to excite you, propel you forward and give meaning to your life if it is to have the power to drive exceptional performance. As long as the dream is possible in your own mind, and you’re willing to commit yourself to it, that’s all that counts.
Overachievers are prepared to talk about their dreams. They break one of society’s taboos without embarrassment .The more people tell them to stop having their heads in the clouds and be “realistic” or “act responsibly” , the better they like it .And the more committed they become to working hard until dream becomes a reality.
The key points to remember about dreams are:
Dreams are not goals-------they’re feelings.
Dreams have stick ability------they will endure while you put in all the effort required to make them happen.
Dreams are highly motivational------they’re the first thing you think about each morning and the last thought on your mind as you fall asleep at the end of the day.
Dreams are resilient and enduring.
Dreams are all embracing------so much so that people caught up in the pursuit of their dreams don’t even notice the stops and starts along the way.
Dreams epitomize the way you want to live your life ------Goals, on the other hand, are simply a device to get you from Point A to Point B.
Dreams are very personal------they only have to excite you and not anyone else on the planet. And one person’s dream can easily be another person’s worst nightmare.
The best dreams are always unrealistic to the majority of people.
Exceptional performers dream big, and aren’t embarrassed about talking about their dreams in public.
“What idea is ratting around in your head that never seems to go away ?What do you really want to be when you grow up-or, better , what did you want to be before you grew up and learned to ‘know better’? If your dream strikes you as too improbable, don’t worry. If it’s possible in your head, it qualifies as a good dream.”
