When we dream, frequently we’re asleep. At least that is how we think of dreams. But there is also another way to dream — exploring ideas on your creativity while you’re awake. When I am asleep and dreaming, I will go anywhere and can do anything. I can do the impossible. But when I wake up, I awake to my imagination. I can envision the dream being possible as I look around me. If my vision is large enough, I can see it becoming possible on a national or global level. As we open our minds to desires, hopes, and dreams — and what we would like to do with our lives today and in the future, we can envision so many things. You may want to do something that someone else will think is hopeless.
When I want to do something, I will not pursue it without being intentional. When you’ve got a plan, you plan to achieve your objective. There will be no need to fantasize about it anymore. No more imagining what might be possible, doing nothing, and leaving the fantasy stagnated on your mind. Purposeful planning makes dreams possible.
Do you want to make your dream a reality? Then you need an action plan. Build your dream business. Build your dream life. Write your fantasy book. You can live your dreams alert! Prepare to do it today and always, with deliberate and purposeful preparation. Whatever the goal, no matter how big or small, begin by outlining your actions steps in writing, whether you would like to lose weight, get a new home, get a better paying job, pay off a couple of bills, start a new act, or whatever it is. Get started with proven action steps that will set you on the right path for your dream. It is time to dig in. Get started by asking yourself these three simple questions.

GET STARTED & STAY THE COURSE
Unfortunately, everyone with a vision does not act on it. In many cases, if we do act, we move on it without the benefit of taking the time to make doable and realistic action steps to navigate the twists, turns, hills, and valleys along the path. To start, keep it simple and achievable. Whatever you do, do not get discouraged and discard the idea. If you value it, it’s worth pursuing and staying the program.
