I am a day dreamer...
... and I'm proud of it! It beats a sleep dreamer anytime. You see, when I day dream, I'm allowing myself the luxury of enjoying what I currently don't have. Yes, I am not a best selling writer but in my day dreams, I'm signing books for my legions of fans and speaking at packed stadiums. The joy that I got out of it is beyond words.
Actually, before you start to say, "Get real" or "Hello, planet Earth calling", let me say that there is power in day dreaming. When we day dream, we are either creating a beautiful picture which we want in our lives or a bleak picture of the things that we fear. Once we are snapped back to reality, notice that the residue of that feeling lingers on like the smell of cigarette from the pub?
Day dream is a form of creating the reality that we want in our lives. Best of all it is free. W. Clement Stone said, "Whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve." So, don't subdue your day dreams (of course, if you are driving a car, then that's a different story).
Believe it or not, I am doing now what I have been day dreaming about. (No, I'm not talking about writing this blog but rather, about being a professional speaker and trainer. That's my full time job.)
So, what are you waiting for? Happy day dreaming.
“All men dream; but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity; but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act out otheir dreams with open eyes, to make it possible.” T.E. Lawrence aka Lawrence of Arabia
