Finding Your Purpose – Dreams

Short post to today, last minute family visit means I’m really stretched for time at the mo.  During my interview with Cavendish Films we spoke a lot about dreams.  Often my clients tell me with a sigh that they guess they’re daydreamers, as if being a day dreamer is some kind of negative.
Cast your mind back to when you were a child and a teacher or other influential adult snapped you out of a daydream telling you to pay attention.  What was it you were dreaming about?  Was it what you were going to be when you grew up?  Was it a scenario that you were playing out in your mind as a film?  Then just like a packet of Jaffa Cakes, poof the dream was gone. 
As children we’re often discouraged from dreaming, instructed that you have to focus on the matter in hand, this is sad, and unfortunately we stop daydreaming altogether. 
Dreams are important; dreams are fundamentally the things that get you out of bed every morning.  Dreams are the things that drive you forward. The only reason I’m sat here in front of my laptop writing this at 6.30am is because I have a dream.   I suggest we all start dreaming again and start dreaming big. 
Allow your dreams to take on lives of their own, think of your dreams as the next blockbuster film, how big could your film be?  Only to add a grown up slant to your dreams write them down.  MAKE THEM STICK.  By writing down your dreams you start to turn them into your reality.  Simple.
