Dream: Defining Success, One Word at a Time

Dream… an excerpt from the book:

Defining Success: One Word at a Time by Gary A. McAbee



What exactly is a dream? When we think of dreams, we often think of the visions and fantasies experienced while sleeping. These images have both fascinated and puzzled mankind throughout human history. However, as it relates to Motivation for the World, we need to use the definition that refers to our aspirations as the concept that makes a clear distinction between our nighttime dreams and our success related dreams. Did you notice the definition of dream used here has the words goal and aim attached to it?

We want on focus on dreams that we create by using our conscious mind in order to start the creative process. These dreams go through a filter to determine whether or not they are achievable or unrealistic. I believe we think about the dreams we believe we can achieve, and allow the unrealistic dreams to sit in far corners of the mind. The dreams you think about the most are attainable! The things you give your attention to can become a reality. These are the dreams that should go from thought, to action, to reality. The process of making this happen starts with belief that we can achieve victory.

Is it just me, or does this sound too good to be true? Our society has us brainwashed into believing success is tucked away in some place far away that the “average” person can never find. Success belongs to someone else, not us. So, we should be happy just to get through this life by merely squeaking out an existence. Nothing is farther from the truth! You have already been introduced to the concept of victory. You have explored the power of faith. Through using if and when, you have the capability to dream about things a lot bigger than your current existence. You have the ability to think without limits, and then attract those thoughts until they become a reality.

What is your wildest dream? If we know in advance this dream will come true, I am sure we would start working on it immediately. Yet some still would not have enough belief that it will come true, even it is guaranteed to happen! This is equivalent to turning a definite victory into a defeat. It is a perfect example of the limits we place on ourselves. We limit our ability to dream! We limit our ability to have faith! Those of us who cannot muster up enough faith to believe a dream will come true have a major roadblock to overcome on the road to success. Thankfully, there are endless concepts and tools that can be used to overcome this thinking.


Affirmation: I am a dreamer and I have the ability to turn my dreams into the victories I want to accomplish.
