22-012 Dream

Today’s Mandala

The future belongs to those who
believe in the beauty of their dreams.
– Eleanor Roosevelt

Nothing happens unless first we dream.” – Carl Sandburg

Climb every mountain
Search high and low
Follow every highway
Every path you know
Climb every mountain
Ford every stream
Follow every rainbow
‘Till you find your dream.

– Oscar Hammerstein II

You’ve got to follow that dream, wherever that dream may lead.” 
– Elvis Presley

20 years from now
you will be more disappointed
by the things that you didn’t do
than by the ones you did do.
So throw off the bowlines.
Sail away from the safe harbor.
Catch the trade winds in your sails.
Explore. Dream. Discover.
– Mark Twain

Difficult to top what these people have said, so I’ll just add some motivational snippets:

  • dream big
  • dreams are just energy waiting for us to bring them to life
  • everyone is worthy of achieving their dream(s)
  • be open to variations of the dream(s)
  • okay to change our minds…
  • …sometimes knowing what we don’t want, steers us to what we _do_ want
  • sometimes the scenic route works out better than taking the highway
  • biggest block to our dreams is our fear of failure…
  • …welcome failures: they are opportunities for growth
  • hang out with like-minded dreamers who also help keep things grounded
  • be willing to ask for help
  • embrace baby steps
  • do the work
  • make the time
  • learn what needs to be learned
  • be prepared for the opportunties
  • feel the fear and do it anyway
    (also the title of a book well-worth reading)

To repeat Mark Twain:

“Explore. Dream. Discover”
