I used to pride myself on being a doer not a dreamer. I thought dreamers were wasting their time dreaming on things, and never doing anything.
The truth is I was afraid to dream or even use my imagination because I didn't have the specialized knowledge that all good things start out as an idea. Someone dreams up a better way to do things, but they do not always carry out their dreams. Now with the specialized knowledge I have I realize that it takes a dream or an idea to start the process of change. It must be followed by a purposeful plan that explains in detail how to carry this plan out.
Ford had a dream and Thomas Edison listened to his dream. He gave Ford the encouragement he needed to help get started. It has dawned on me, we usually need someone in our corner to believe in our dream while we are starting out.
It takes a lot of effort to get this dream off the ground, and time. As Michael has said over and over again I can not do this on my own. I need the support and encouragement of my team to help make this happen.
I heard Michael say on the Monday skills call that if he could think it then he could do it. I have decided to do the same thing because if Michael can do it then so can I.
I am moving in the right direction because I am starting to dream again. It is becoming easier to see what I want in my dream, to picture it, to feel it, and to sense it happening.
I am grateful it is happening, and I know it will happen even more in the future as I combine imagination and action.
