Are you one of those people who can spend a day dreaming about various things – places you can go, things you can create, articles you can write, and relationships you want in your life? Or maybe you’ve chosen a more realistic approach and think planning is much better than dreaming? Either way, this article will be useful for you because it reveals the importance of dreaming not just for achieving your huge goals, but for small everyday things as well.
You focus on the good
Whether you dream to become a star, a chef, or a travelling photographer known all over the world, no one can take that away from you. Life has its ups and down and you may achieve some goals, while failing others, and that’s totally okay! When you have this dream in front of you, all negative things don’t matter as much because you have something you are eager to achieve, something big and beautiful waiting for you. It inspires you to always move forward no matter what.
You become stronger
Walt Disney said: “If you can dream it, you can do it”, and that’s exactly how dreams work! Dreams are born from the things we are truly passionate about, all those hobbies we love and true desires that are rooted deeply in our knowledge of the Self. If you dream about something, it means you can achieve it! Maybe not at once, but you can start with creating small goals that will get you moving towards that Big Dream that may seem impossible right now. That’s why dreaming is so empowering. And the best thing? You can have lots of dreams!
You get what you give
Dreams make you focus on things that inspire you and make you happy. Even if you don’t plan much and just like to dream about that big trip to Asia or a vacation at an exotic island – this creates just the right amount of positive vibes to make your day better. And not only that – if you dream a lot and start moving towards your dream, your whole life becomes happier as you are always focused on something that cheers you up. It automatically makes people around you happier as well, and it all comes back to you in the end. Feel good, do good, and you will receive even more goodness in response.
It’s a lot easier to act when you have a dream because it gives you so much purpose in life. You may not know how to achieve that dream of yours, but you are willing to act and move forward. You’ll figure everything out soon enough! You keep on learning new things, trying new things, and overcoming various obstacles when they appear in your life. Dream is like your inner fuel that makes life so much more fun and interesting to live.
You connect to your Inner Self
We used to dream a lot as kids, but what about now? Do you even know what you really want in life, what would make you truly happy? It may be something small or something big – you’ll never know unless you start asking yourself questions again. This requires a trip deep inside your own Self, something not many people find the time to do. Yet it is one of the most rewarding things you can do for yourself as it will show you what truly drives you in life. The more you understand who you are, the happier you become!
You become more open
Many of us were told to ‘get real’ while growing up, which meant we had to drop our dreams and start thinking about what someone else thought was important. But how can you become happy if you haven’t even tried achieving your dream? It just makes your whole life miserable. And without failure, how can you find what you’re good at? This is the time to stop crippling yourself and those around you and just become more open to various possibilities your life has to offer. If you have a passion for painting – then paint and see where it gets you! If you like to write, then do this and see whether it feels good if you become professional at it.
You become creative
When you dream of something long enough, you start thinking about various ways you can make that dream come true. That is when your creativity kicks in! There’s no such thing as a non-creative person as dreaming in itself is a very creative process. And the more complicated your dream is, the more creative you get with methods of achieving it. It’s a beautiful process that makes your life meaningful and much more interesting.
You meet new people
Dreams help you get out of your comfort zone because it’s impossible to achieve something when you aren’t moving forward. And that’s exactly when you start meeting new people! You go to the places you’ve never visited before and try the things you never thought were possible, you grow and meet new people on that path you’ve taken. They will probably have the same values and will brighten up your world even more.
