Learn how to be the maker of your dream – starting now.
Note: This is a guest essay by Josselyne Saccio
Everyone has a dream.
Yet many of us give up on our dreams for fear of not having enough time or money or support to achieve them.
I have spent years working with people to empower them to clarify their dreams – then fulfill them.
You don’t have to wait to win the lottery to have your dreams realized.
What is your dream source?
Yes, “dream source,” not dream.
I coined this word years ago as a way to describe the essence of WHY you want this particular dream to come true.
If your dream is to win an Academy Award, I would ask, “If you won it, what would be possible that’s now not possible for you?”
The answer takes you to a deeper level of the dream and closer to your “dream source.”
Your response: “Well, then I will have people listening to me differently and I will have more opportunity.”
Me: “What kind of opportunity?”
You: “Opportunity to make more money.”
Me: “Then what would be possible if you had more money?”
You: “I could buy a house.”
Me: “Then what would be possible?”You: “I could stop worrying about money.”
Me: “Then what would be possible?”
You: “I could focus on what really matters in life.”
Me: “Like what?”
You: “Like how I could make a difference for children who are starving.”
Me: “What could you do?”
You: “I could create nourishment programs for starving children.”
Me: “Then what would be present on the planet?”
You: “Honor, vitality, and partnership.”
Other answers I’ve heard are projects to create self expression, joy, appreciation, independence, creativity, etc.
These are all examples of a person’s “dream source.”
Another way to approach the search for a “dream source” is to look at your childhood.
You can create that with anyone at anytime under any circumstance.
Being able to create honor at Starbucks or with your mother-in-law or with your boss will allow you to fulfill you dreams right now – instead of someday.
Dreams can be fulfilled everyday if you stop looking for a circumstances to make your dreams real – and instead start bringing your “dream source” to every circumstance.
As Willy Wonka says, “We are the makers of dreams.”
