Dream + Action = Reality.

“God gives us dreams a size too big so that we can grow into them.” ~ Unknown

Sometimes self-discipline can actually be a curse. If I can’t afford something, I have disciplined myself not to want it. So in cases of dreams, the self-disciplined pragmatist in me sets aside dreams in favor of dealing with reality.

However, when a new reality is forming, if I were bold, I could actually open back up that dream and see if it fits into the new reality… or see if that dream can become become my new normal.

So I search for wisdom to both encourage me and spur me on…

Don’t sit down and wait for the opportunities to come. Get up and make them!” Madam CJ Walker.

As Tony Robbins says, “If there’s no action, you haven’t truly decided.”

They’re not only telling me that it is time to dream, it is time to act on the dream.

What are you dreaming about and what action steps are you taking to make that dream reality?
