Mr. Smith, Please Enter the Dream Room - Dream Big Dreams to Do Big Things!


Enjoy a great quote to start off this fantastic week!

"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 their dream with open eyes, to make it possible." T.E. Lawrence

OK, so now that you know that, what does that mean to become one of the "dreamers of the day" that Lawrence talks about? Why can dreams help you do more and be more than you ever thought possible? And how can you make your dreams more powerful parts of your life?

I'll begin with the last question first, making dreams a more powerful part of your life. The first step in making dreams powerful is to go to bed thinking about that which you want to dream about. That means turn off the TV, and turn on something else that you want to dream about. If you want to dream about accomplishing more in your life, re-read your goals before you fall asleep. If you haven't already written down your goals, take 10 minutes and write one down tonight before you go to sleep, and tomorrow night, another one, and the next night another one, until you have all the goals you want to achieve written down. You can go low-tech with a notebook or 3x5 index cards, or high tech and type them on your computer and print them off on full sheets of paper. It doesn't much matter, just put those thigns down. One of my favorite authors, Napoleon Hill said it best when he said "Reduce your plan to writing... The moment you complete this, you will have definitely given concrete form to the intangible desire."

These dreams help you do more and be more than you ever thought possible because the more you think about something, consciously or unconsciously, the more you find ways to accomplish those thoughts. If your goal is to make $250,000 per year, and you write it down, and re-read it before bed, your mind will automatically find new ways for you to make more money than you ever thought possible.

Now to the best part: how to become a "dreamer of the day." The first thing you should do to become a dreamer of the day is to set up a "dream room:" a room or place you can go to get away from it all and just think. Bring a notebook, and a pen, and maybe some music playing device. Some might want to bring a tape recorder so the thoughts are recorded as they are said. No matter, but make it a special place, and go there whenever you need to dream. Make it special, and you'll make it great!

The next thing is to learn, always learn, more about whatever it is you're passionate about, whatever it is you want to dream about. Go to the library and get all the books you can get about the topic, and read them. Take them to your dream room with you, and make notes on what you read, and use these to help clarify your goals.

Last, and possibly most important, is be persistent. You won't be a great dreamer right away. It will take time, and that's okay and in fact, that's more than OK. That's normal. As Mr. Hill says: ""The majority of men (and women) meet with failure because of their lack of persistence in creating new plans to take the place of those which fail."
