The Successful Dreamer
It seems to me that the world is getting increasingly biased, split, separated in two:
On one side there are the “practical” people that believe dreaming is a foolish waste of time.
(Watch out they are taking over the world!)
On the other side there are the “dreamers”, the idealists that believe it is better to be pulled by your dreams than to be pushed by your bills.
In this dichotomy I am feeling like an odd bird because I believe in the practical dreamer, the “successful dreamer” as I call it.
Let me put it this way:
Not all dreamers are successful people but all successful people are great dreamers :)
My quest has always been to empower the dreamer, to turn the dreams into reality.
Here is where the living in the “now” doctrine comes in.
Look at yourself as a construct in time.
See yourself as a tree.
Your roots are stuck in the past from which you draw up your wisdom and experience.
The future is the crown of the tree where inspiration and imagination are assimilated from the universe, like the light energy is gathered from the sun.
Between your past and your future, between your memories and your dreams there is the trunk of the tree, the moment of now.
The trunk of the tree it doesn’t look like much – and I understand why dreamers get stuck in the past or the future but you see, the moment of now is the key of turning your dreams into accomplishments.
Without the moment of now you can not turn your dreams into visions.
Without the moment of now you can not turn your experience into an action plans.
Living in the “now” means bringing your future and your past together into action.
The moment of now makes you a whole being.
Acting in the moment of now, as boring and hard it might seem is the only way to grow.
If you understand this concept of being a construct in time and the power of “now” you are ready to become a “successful dreamer”
All you have to do is start accomplishing things.
And that is the easiest part to do!!!
