The Power of a Big Dream and the Vision to Accomplish It

I have always dreamt. And I’ve always dreamt big. But until I developed vision – a real vision of what I wanted to create in conjunction with that dream – I made little progress.

Many people do not understand the difference between having just a dream and having a real vision of what you want to create but the difference is huge. When you are dreaming you are removed, you are wishing for something to be. It is not real. It is not part of you. Kind of like being at your job and wishing you were sitting on a nice warm beach with palm trees somewhere. This will not get the job done.

So, what are you to do? You must develop vision.

What is vision?

Vision is what allows you to fully experience where you want to be in your life before you get there. You can see it, smell it, taste it, feel it, hear it, touch it before it actually exists. In your day to day being, you don’t experience the rote that is in front of you – you experience your vision of where you intend to be even though it does not yet exist in our 3-dimensions – as though you are already there.

What you are doing is training your subconscious mind.

Did you know that your subconscious can’t tell the difference between a “real” event and a “visualized” event as we have described? This fact is used all the time in training for peak performance in sports – just ask the New England Patriots!

Take advantage of this fact. What your subconscious believes to be true it will create for you. It will make you recognize the things of which you should take advantage to reach your vision – your big dreams. Pay attention and take advantage of those hints your mind is giving you.

This is the major tool that I used to get where I am now. That and solid action. I kept that vision in front of me continuously – tasting, feeling, smelling, hearing, feeling, and seeing it continuously.

Do that and persist and you will be well on your way! And, if you found this post valuable make sure you share it with your friends and colleagues by clicking on the share buttons up above. And, of course, I would live to hear your feedback. Leave it in the comment area below!
