Dreamers Of The World Unite
Inspiration of the Day
“The world lies in the hands of those that have the courage to dream and who take the risk of living out their dreams – each according to his or her own talent.”
Author of The Alchemist and many other life altering novels.
So Now What?
You’re reading this email because someone had a dream. The books that inspire you the most are in print because somebody had a dream. You’re able to listen to your favorite music because someone had a dream. You keep returning to your favorite restaurant and ordering your favorite dish because someone had a dream.
The medicine that heals you, the robots on Mars, the fancy oven that cooks your food, the tires that roll you down the road, all the various things that touch your life are there because someone, somewhere, at some point woke up and said, “wouldn’t it be great if…” and then acted upon that dream.
But make no mistake, manifesting that dream into physical form usually came with great opposition. People laughed, scoffed, and ridiculed. They said it couldn’t be done and that the dreamer was a fool.
And maybe it didn’t work for the 1st, 2nd or 573rd time. But the true dreamer preservers.
Yes, it does take risk but the dreamers have no choice.
Read any biography of any great world changer and it is rife with trial and tribulation, there is always much wailing and gnashing of teeth. They had to traverse great mountains in order to see their dreams become reality.
You have been granted a talent. I don’t know what it is and maybe even at this point in your life you don’t know what it is either. But it is there.
Whether you’re 20, 40 or 80, age matters not, your dream is important.
Maybe your dream is so significant to the human race that you needed decades of life-training and knowledge in order to refine your dream and create its beauty.
Don’t give up on yourself or your dream. It’s not over yet.
So how do you find your dream, your passion? You’ve been given some clues in the form of your “likes” and “dislikes.” What are some of the activities that really light up your life? That’s a great starting point.
If you’re really not sure about your passions and dreams, or you want to go deeper, I highly recommend Janet Bray Attwood and Chris Attwood’s The Passion Test: The Effortless Path To Discovering Your Life Purpose.
Another great resource comes from Oprah and her 4-Step Guide to Discovering Who You’re Meant to Be.
If you’re like me you’d love to become stinkin’ rich…I mean…financially free living your passion. But making money at your dream is not the point – maybe you will, maybe you won’t.
What is important is that you are doing something you love that will change somebody’s life for the better, even if it’s just putting a smile on their face because of a beautiful painting you created or a joke you told.
And because of that one life you change, or the multitude of lives you will change, the world will be a more wonderful and wondrous place.
Dream On Dreamer!
