“Dream no small dreams for they have no power to move the hearts of men.” — Johann Wolfgang von Goethe


I am a huge fan of dreaming – of visioning – of defining the future you want to make for yourself.


In “South Pacific”, Bloody Mary tells us that “You’ve got to have a dream.  If you don’t have a dream how you gonna have a dream come true?”


I don’t care how young or how old you are – you’ve got to have a dream.


And – if you are going to have a dream, you might as well make it a good one!


Goethe lived from 1749 – 1832 – but was far ahead of his time in the area of dreaming.

Too many of us are afraid of big dreams – afraid that we might not achieve our dreams and that we will be disappointed.


My experience is just the opposite.  Once we take the time to create and give realness to the dream, it is much more likely to happen.


Your action assignment:  Spend 10-20 minutes each day for the next week exploring your dreams.  Write them all down.  And then pick the most powerful of them and give them the energy to give them some strong definition.  Make them tangible, visible, crystal-clear, and even “hefty”.  Be able to taste, see, and feel what that dream really is.  And then keep it visible.


Dream big dreams – for they will have the power to move your heart to action.

If you don’t have a dream how you gonna have a dream come true?
