It’s time to sit back and relax. Take a moment and close your eyes. Allow reality to slip away and leave you alone with your thoughts—no, not your everyday thoughts concerning your endless to-do list. It’s time to get back in touch with the musings that make you glow with excitement at the very idea of their existence.
All of us at, one point or another are guilty of dismissing ideas for bad timing, being too expensive or unrealistic. Practicality is considered important; and often it is well founded and our instincts save us from pain.
However, there is a bit of a dark side to our culture—we can’t even see its devious dream-crushing ways. Often so caught up in “reality” we unconsciously fall in line with what is expected of us, or what other people around us are doing. We settle for what’s considered normal, safe and appropriate.
This is what we know:
- Leaders aren’t created by playing it safe
- Businesses don’t start without believing they’re possible
- Society won’t evolve without imaging it another way
If we don’t believe in the possibilities of our dreams and actually go after them, we aren’t only shortchanging ourselves. We’re shortchanging everyone. So please, do us all a favour and dream a little more often and seriously consider making them part of the new reality.
