I 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?
