The difference between a goal and a
Dream is not just setting a time frame for its attainment and
then "making it happen". More and more people are beginning
to realize that their old aspirations that they thought were
going to make them happy actually make them even more unhappy.
A new way of thinking has begun in large numbers. People
returning to their Dreams. The Dreams of their Hearts. Some call
it "Living with a Purpose", others refer to it as "Right
Understand that Real Dreams come from
your Heart - from your Soul. Your Passions in life are inseperably
linked with your Heart, the place where Dreams come from. Knowing
this and weaving this principle into your life will make profound
changes for you and your loved ones and friends. You will feel
different, more alive, more passionate - more real!
Realizing your Dreams is a choice! You can decide
to take what I call "Dream Steps" - those actions
that transform your Dreams into reality!
Q. How do I know what my Dreams are and how do I act on
Ask yourself, "What makes my heart
sing?" What have I wanted to do for years but haven't done
because of some obstacle or belief that I perceived?
Keep in mind that the best time to sense your Dream is when you
first awake or when you are in a quiet place (preferably in Nature).
"When your mind is calm, clarity results". Some of
the most successful people in the world know this, and they make
their major decisions from a calm mind.
Keep in mind that these successful people value balance in
their lives with major importance.
Question: "Paul, Why shouldn't I just continue working
on my goals - everything seems to be working?"
Answer: Ask Yourself, Am I really
happy? Or, Am I looking outside for my fulfillment rather than
inside. You'll notice that I often have you ask
yourself questions - or refer to how you feel inside.
The reason for this is because deep inside you, there is
an incredible source of creativity
and imagination that you are only beginning to tap. Goals
are fine - but how do you really feel
when you accomplish them? Do you feel rewarded? Or do you
just pass them off, like another old challenge has been met?
Do you actually take the time to acknowledge your small successes
that you've created in your life? Do you take time to pat yourself
on the back (especially when no one else does?)
Know this - Real happiness
and satisfaction in life depends upon how you embrace what You
are passionate about! And only by embracing your passions
can you achieve the happiness you are destined for.
