Lions donโ€™t dream of hunting. They just hunt.

One thing Iโ€™ve come to realize is that, a person should know when to dream and when to hunt that dream.

But unfortunately, most people just dream of it all day long and donโ€™t actually hunt their dreams.

Are you part of the people that dream of their destinations but donโ€™t put in efforts at getting there?

Do you dream of catching a big opportunity in life but you are just so lazy to stand up, work your ass off and hunt that dream?

Well, I must confess to you:

I have done this before. I have spent years daydreaming and thinking of that future person I want to be.

I have dreamt of meeting with the ideal people Iโ€™d love to meet with.

I have wasted too much time dreaming. I have wasted too much time in my imaginary thoughts.

Itโ€™s good to dream. Iโ€™m not disputing.

Itโ€™s cool to dream, no argument there.

In fact, the first process for accomplishing a task is to dream it first.

When you picture it all in your mind, it pushes and motivates you to go for it.

Let me share this with you

Until January 2019, I have not been living a balanced life.

I was in a situation that you might have been in at a point in your life.

Whatโ€™s the situation?

Indecision.

Have you ever gone through a part in your life that you know your strengths and where you are good at, but for some reasons, you chase other aspects that you honestly suck at.

Yeah, really? Youโ€™ve experienced it? Youโ€™ve not? Ohh

I knew the talents deposited in me. I knew what will make me soar like an Eagle, but I was looking at other aspects because I felt they are simply attractive? Or they are more noticeable by people? Or what? I just couldnโ€™t understand.

So I basically dreamt. You know, like the dream you have when itโ€™s still 12:00pm (noon) but you force yourself to sleep so that you can have the dream of you getting handshakes with top people in the world. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

So I dreamt. I would dream, wake up, dream, wake up, dream, wake up.

But then I noticed that

The type of dreams you have is what determines the level of effort and determination that you will put into achieving them.

Take for instance:

You are a travel blogger. You love to write. But instead of you to dream about you being a best selling author or a speaker, you are dreaming of being the person that will invent the time machine.

Now, looking at the above illustration, which dream do you think the blogger will achieve? Which dream do you think will be more suitable?

Which dream do you think that if the blogger dreams of, it will push him/her into actions?

This is why Iโ€™m emphasizing that you must have the dreams that align with your talents and your potentials.

If you love to write or you love to sing, dream about seeing yourself in a record label instead of you being a footballer like Ronaldo.

Having the right dream that aligns with your talents will make your chances of success more achievable.

After dreaming the right dream, move on to actions๐Ÿ’

Donโ€™t spend too much time dreaming.

Itโ€™s summer! You have this perfect picture of a dream home. You want to build a house.

Itโ€™s okay to dream about the decorations, designs, lightening system, pool, etc

But if you continue dreaming, without putting in actions, time will go. And the summer will become winter. Would you be able to build your house during winter? Unfavorable conditions.

Thatโ€™s what happens when you dream excessively without putting in actions.

Time flies and before you know it, youโ€™ve wasted a whole lot of time dreaming and dreaming and dreaming. And still no work or effort has been done.

Conclusion ๐Ÿ’

I think youโ€™ve spent 70% dreaming and 30% working on it. This is not balanced.

You have the idea in your head. This is just the right time to go hunt it. Time isnโ€™t waiting. Time is going.

Do anything you can do to hunt that dream. If itโ€™s increasing your knowledge by books, seminars …do it

Dream the right dreams. Dream the dreams that goes with your talents and skills. It would be more productive and effective than dreaming of your future self in a place that doesnโ€™t even connect with your talents.

I have created a short survey below๐ŸŽ‰

  3. Perhaps the most powerful thing I was ever asked to do (a very long time ago) during a five day intensive workshop as part of a 12 month leadership and management development program, was to draw a picture of where I saw myself in five years time. I drew two things, and as it turned out, I achieved one of those. The other one wasn’t as important, because I started a whole new career in any case. However, what that did make me realise is this: although you may have a goal, once you start, you may end up on a completely different path which leads to something even more amazing ๐Ÿ˜‰

  4. Excellent post, Vincent! Dreams don’t usually come true unless we take action. Not taking action can cause feelings of regret and sadness. So we best endeavor to make them come alive. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

    1. Iโ€™m glad you enjoyed the survey and thanks a lot for sharing it on Twitter. I really appreciate it. ๐Ÿ™

      I will take the answers, sit down with them and look at the answers that are more often alike (by different people.)

      Then I will think of writing posts, or even a book that targets those areas of concern.
