Dreams Can Be Goals, But Not All Goals Are Dreams

dream-big2I believe having goals and having dreams are two separate things.  Dreams can be goals, but not all goals are dreams.  For instance, a dream can be to one day live at the ocean and this can also be a goal.  But a  goal could also be to earn a six figure income, but that doesn’t necessarily mean six figures is a dream.  It is easy, however, to see how the six figure income could be a vital part of eventually fulfilling the dream of living at the ocean.

I don’t encounter many adults whose dreams are still alive, who are also actively working and living toward those dreams.  I’m not sure why.  Maybe people have dreams they just don’t talk about them?  Maybe they once had dreams, but somewhere along the line they stopped aiming their life at those dreams.

Do you have active dreams to which your life is solely focused?

  1. How inspiring! I think we grow up with dreams, and then life happens and we develop bitterness from the harshness of life’s battles. That bitterness taints our perspectives as adults and causes a lot of us to give up dreaming, sometimes for good. As someone who’s experienced my own personal storms, I am trying to make a conscious effort to rekindle my hope. Posts like this help me to go on. Thank you.
