Living A FUNtastic Life (Part 53)

by Patrick Liew on February 12, 2012

Successful people have one common denominator – they have dreams. They know what they want and they work towards achieving it.

When there is a dream, there is life. Without it, you will float in the sea of dissatisfaction. You will drift through the passage of time.

Without dreams, you can never live a meaningful, exciting and fulfilling life.

You are created and designed to dream. I believe that our Creator has already placed a dream within you. Oftentimes, amidst the noise and haste, you fail to recognize the dream and live it out.

Dreams are a preview of the different lives that you can experience. They are stories that your heart wants to craft for your life – and they help you choose and craft your destiny.

You will never be free unless you free your mind to explore the ends of the worlds.

You will always be imprisoned if you cannot mentally traverse the expanse of space, time, energy and matter – and see how things can fit into your dreams.

Everything great starts with a dream. The world around you is created and re-created by dreamers.

Dreamers see a new world before the rest of the world. They see the world not for what it is but what it can become – and they went ahead to redesign the world.

Dreams are like a compass. They help you to navigate your life to success. If you don’t have a dream, you will always be moving in the wrong direction and end up in the wrong place.

The greatness of your dreams will determine how great your life will become.

When a dream is so electrifying that it consumes you, you cannot live at the same level. It will help you live up to your higher potential and calling.

With a dream, you can feel that there is something great waiting for you. That feeling can give you a sense of strength, control, and direction.

When your spirit, heart and mind is set on fire with a dream, you will be more motivated to plan for and to design your life.

You will better organize your life and discipline your lifestyle. You will be able to channel your resources to attain the next level of achievement and growth. You will learn to control and direct them to fulfill your dreams.

You will learn how to value your life and the people around you because they, too, have dreams. Together, you have a much better chance of fulfilling each other’s dreams.

When your mind is stretched by a dream, you will improve your personal development. You want to be a better you so as to better achieve your dream.

Dreams that occupy your mind limit the room for fear and worries. It drives out other negative emotions and inhibitions. You will soon realise they have no useful place on the journey of dreams.

On this journey, potholes become pots of gold to inspire you to success. They are useful experiences for feedback, learning and improvement.

Dream impossible dreams. It will drive you to stretch yourself so as to make achieving the dreams possible. When you plan to go farther than you thought you could, you will know what it means to live life to the full.

Unrealistic dreams in the past have become real because of humans like us. These people saw a different ‘reality’ – they do what ordinary people won’t do, and won’t do what ordinary people do.

They perceive a different ‘reality’ from us. You, too, can live on their plane of ‘reality.’

Tragically, there are many who are dreamers but not doers. There is a rare few who are achievers – they dream and do what is necessary to make their dreams come true.

The good news is that it is never too late to start on a journey to turn dreams into reality. The transportation system of life will continue to improve so as to take you farther and faster to your desired destination.

Crafting a dream is not a one-time process but an ongoing one. You need to review and improve on it throughout your journey.

Dream on, my friend!
