Dream: an ambition, to consider something practical or feasible, to invent; Dreamer: A visionary, an idealist. All of us have dreams, but why are so many of us, only dreaming and not doing? There could be several answers, but one may be the people around you. There are four types of people in your life: Dream Stealers, Dream Killers, Dream Builders, and Dream Givers. The number of people in each category may lead you to your answer of why you don’t go after dreams.
A Dream Stealer is someone who makes subtle suggestions that cause you to doubt yourself. “I don’t know why you are working 60 hours a week, you aren’t getting anything out of it” or “Why are you working out, all you do is complain!” Now let’s talk about the Dream Killer.
Dream Killers are those who have a huge effect on you. They keep pushing and pushing until they get to you and you give up. "I don't know why you are spending all that money on a gym membership, you have tried it 10 times and have failed every time," or "it hasn't worked yet, it won't work this time either!"
Then there are the Dream Builders who know you are called unto excellence, they hold you accountable and they support you. “I know how much you want to lose that 80 pounds, and I know you can do it this time!” or “You are so deserving of that promotion, and I know how hard you are working to get it, just keep it up.”
Then there are the Dream Givers. Dream Givers are special individuals who inspire you to dream. They want you to reach your full potential and can see what you are capable of, even if you can’t; they keep you wanting more – they speak the dreams into you. There aren’t a lot of Dream Givers out there, but when you come across one, you will know who they are.
And remember, “If you aim at nothing, you’ll hit it every time.”
