What does “dream” mean?
To dream is to sleep, right? When you sleep, you are sometimes able to perceive your subconscious. Making a very vivid, detailed, a self-involving movie we call a dream. But what if the dreams we have at night while we sleep(the ones we remember at least) are goals we wish to achieve in the present and future? Is it possible that dreams could very well be our brain trying to remind us about our realistic goals and who we truly are internal?
Dreams = Goals
When you get into detail about what “dream” really means, it’s not uncommon that it could also mean your personal goals. In elementary school, the teachers would always use encouraging quotes such as, “Dream Big!” or, “Follow your Dreams!” Maybe it’s just me, but I was today years old when I realized that might be more accurate than we all originally thought it to be. We all have a dream we visualize in our heads of how we wished our life would turn out for the future but we think of them as just that, simply a dream; Too far out of reach to make a reality. Imagine though, if you made slow changes in your easily achievable goals toward the direction of your BIG dream… how much happier people would be in their career choices and lifestyles? Easier said than done but looking at my goals from a DREAM angle helps get me more motivated and inspired to be and do better.
