Dreams Take Work But More Importantly Take BELIEF

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty 0575737

Dreams are an interesting topic to think about. So much about the world around us is embedded in REALITY. Many people if you are a dreamer will tell you to get your head out of the clouds or quit being in Lah Lah land. Did you know the biggest dreamers are the most curious about life? They do not lose their childlike wonder. They embrace imagination and tap into their passionate side quite often and don't let their practical side get the best of them. They listen to their heart.

Vacation IdeaI've noted too and this is a very important concept that

Dreams Take Work But More Importantly Take BELIEF.

Dreams can be very fragile. Poof they can be gone if you don't hold on to them. Think of all the areas for your visions of tomorrow: vacation ideas, home you want to live in, where you live, lifestyle, what your love life looks like, who that person is that gives you that overall loved feeling, what your ideal job is, working through your bucket list of things you want to do in life, etc.

But with this fragile nature of dreams, and I have seen this with buyers crushed that they could not buy a house due to not qualifying or not buy a house for years with bad credit, you DO have to persist with the work toward the dream and ABSOLUTELY have a belief that you can bring it to fruition. Allowing of course for the possibilities of some dreams not coming your way due to parts of the plan "out of your control" I am one out there who thinks DREAMS REALLY DO COME TRUE.

That last statement is easy to make but maybe suspect in the real world you might say based on observation to be true. BECAUSE as we all know

  • Dreams can be delayed
  • Dreams can be shelved for the time being
  • Dreams can be abandoned due to neglecting their attention
  • You can think a dream is impossible or at best improbable
  • You can be distracted in life and forget about the roadmap to get to your dream
  • Hope can be lost and your energy wanes as a dream slips away
  • You can think you DON'T DESERVE your dream
  • Dreams can be forgotten
  • And the WORST OF ALL, you GAVE UP on your dream due to not listening to your heart!!!

I think I just listed the Murphy's Law capsule for dreams going astray. But you know in life, other than those uncontrollables I mentioned,

       .......... if you can dream it you can achieve it!!

NEVER give up on a dream if it is what you want. YOU SO DESERVE IT.

                           Dreams Really Do Come True

Gary, I love the dream theme.  I think time and life tend to beat the dreams out of a lot of people.  But, just Margie #2 shows that there are still dreamers out there, and I say, "Awesome!  Dream on!!"

Gary: Dreams may not be immediate. A focus point like a dream can be exactly what one needs in life to work toward. If you don't know where you are going, how do you know if you're on the right road.  Dreams can come true, we just don't exactly when.

This one certainly is a Thought Provoker and deserves a suggest.

Gary, dreams do come true...they give you purpose and focus and make you want to do better. I'm definitely a dreamer and wouldn't have it any other way!

There's this new show called The Marriage Ref and most of the issues are these middle-aged men trying to live out their dreams and the wives not happy, and the wives win everytime! What they keep pointing out is that a dream shouldn't become your lifestyle if you can't afford it, but that you can work on your dream in the real world.

Allison: I like the commitment term. Come hell or high water, you will get to your dream.

Margie: GREAT example and excellent inspiration for all of us with the sailboat. Thank you very much.

Mike: Maybe we need a RESET point to not let time and life beat the dreams out of us. Continually I say, "GO FOR IT."

Andrew: I love the graphic. Dreams just don't happen. People work often very hard with strong belief to see them materialize in the world.

Carl and Ceil: I like that term "focus point." You are putting a point out there in space that gives you DIRECTION. Excellent thought.

Candy: I like BIG dreamers and then showing everyone that you can make them true too.

Donna: Working the dream in the real world is like the best of all worlds, not staying in fantasy but step by step getting there.

Kristin: Judy Garland hit that song perfectly I agree, even the set design with the black and white too.

Hannah: Glad to brighten up your day Hannah. You do for all of us here all the time.

Bill: Dreams do pull us forward into the future with tons of hope and smiles I agree.....

Gary,

You're speaking my language.  Of course, there are many components to making your dreams come true, but without belief, there really is not beginning, except for vain imaginations... g

A dream is a wish that lacks the inner belief that it can happen.  Without that belief, there is no way.

William: It is quite true an inner working that goes with the dream, call it commitment, belief, or dedication, it is the energy, the passion that goes with a dream that you "want it" and will truly go for it. Without it, it is just a thought on a piece of paper which may as well be tossed in the trash, cause it is not going to happen.

There are those dreams that we can work to achieve Gary, those dreams in action turn into goals I think.  Then there are those outrageous-never-going-to-happen-probably-in-a-million-year dreams that are a great diversion for a few minutes....like flying dreams, or daydreams that transport us to another dimension like sitting under the umbrella in your photo....I think those dreams are OK, too.

Gary, I am not sure which I enjoyed more, your written text or the music from one of my favorite songs of all time.  The song provided the perfect background for reading your post.  Thank you for sharing a very special message and best wishes always.

Mary: Oh c'mon Mary, aren't you booking your trip now for that sitting under the umbrella trip? I got to get to Red Feather Lakes and see all that beauty in your area. You are a great spokesperson for Northern Colorado for sure. To move from diversion to reality BELIEVE. That's the ticket!!

Richard: Judy Garland's vocal pipes are awesome I agree, and that scene in the movie amongst many is a classic!!

Hello Gary and you know what VB thinks about dreams because most of his do come true! When I first viewed your post and then saw the video below I thought for a minute it was one of mine. I have a video like this in HD at one of my YouTube accounts that I posted several weeks ago.

Your wonderful post has been featured at one of my favorite groups at AR ...

And yet another excellent post. That positive energy and encouragement that we can draw from others is perhaps the best thing to help us get back on track and to believe again in our dreams -- no matter how impossible they may seem.
