Dreams or Fantasies?
I saw this poster today. It reminded me of many dreams that I’ve had over the years.
Some of them I have pursued. Others have fallen by the wayside for lack of attention.
How do you know if there’s something that you’re meant to do?
You can’t forget it. It sticks in your mind. It won’t let you go.
BUT if you don’t take any action or even write down a Step by Step Plan of what to do and how to get there, it’s a fantasy. Not a dream.
Get it OUT of your head and down on paper.
There’s something about writing it down that activates things in your mind. “OK, she’s getting serious about it now.”
Some people may even call it an OBSESSION.
Who are some famous people with obsessions?
- Elon Musk: He wants to take people to Mars. He wants to protect our planet by using sustainable energy and electric cars.
- Sir Richard Branson: He also wants to make space travel possible (Virgin Galactic). He started with Virgin Records and grew from there.
- Jeff Bezos: He wants Amazon to dominate the world with its ecommerce and shopping offerings. He’s after more market share. People in the books & retail industry are afraid of him.
While these things are not easy to achieve, these people are single minded in their focus.
I’m currently reading `Elon Musk’ by Ashlee Vance, NY Time Best Selling author. Highly recommend this. Incredible value 421 pages for $9.99 on Kindle. There are so many junk books out there. This is not one of them. Vance asked Musk for his input into the book. He refused. Vance did not give up. After something like 20 times, Musk agreed to an interview. When Vance asked him, he said OK.
The first thing that Musk asked him: “Do you think I’m insane?”
Insane or not, he’s making things possible that other people have not been able to achieve: Solar City, SpaceX and Tesla.
`No’ or `Impossible’ are two words that do not belong in his world.
Do they belong in your world?
Live Long & Prosper. Peace.
