If you want your dreams to come true you have to wake up! You need to open your eyes. It’s so easy to think about what we want, to lament over not having what we want and to wish for what we want. It’s so not easy to put one foot in front of the other and make your dreams a reality.
Or is it?
Have you ever had a dream and then days, weeks or months later lived that dream? It’s the craziest thing when it happens. We often call it deja vu. But, I do think our dreams can be our own future tellers. I know that borderline on woo but it’s true. Let me tell you a story.
At the very beginning of this year, I lost my engagement ring. I cried so hard. I was inconsolable. I really couldn’t stop looking for it. One day two weeks after I lost it I was dreaming. In my dream, I kept seeing piles of rings from the designer of my ring. But none of the rings were mine. My husband was in my dream and he kept saying I could pick any ring I wanted. But, I kept looking for my ring. I left this market to join my husband and friends to go get Kippy’s ice cream. And just as we were about to leave I saw my ring in a pile. My alarm went off! I closed my eyes. I wanted to go back to this dream so badly. I wanted to see where my ring was. But, I couldn’t get back to the dream. I couldn’t see more than what I already saw. I had to get up. I had to open my eyes.
My housekeeper walked in and I said to her “Elvia, we are going to find this ring. It’s in a pile. I just saw it in a dream.” Sure enough, an hour later she found it, in a pile of toothbrushes.
I know that my ring story is nothing like the dreams we have for our lives or our businesses but I hope it shows that in your dreams is your future and you can have it if you believe and open your eyes.
