A friend recently shared with me his reflections on his visit to Italy. He wrote: “From this trip, I learned so much about the culture and history of Italy, but also learned a lot about myself. I learned how to soak in every single moment, as I don’t know if I’ll ever be back. I appreciated each day, each meal, and each business visit.” He went on to write that it was always a dream to take his parents to Italy for all that they had done and sacrificed for him and pay for it himself. He knew it was now possible. Of this he said: “It is no longer a dream of mine, but a goal. It will happen, and now I have a clear focus of what I need to do on my end in order to make this a reality.”
The lives of great leaders are filled magnificent dreams of what can be. These are the precious pieces of the beautiful mosaic they paint of their life’s journey – a journey of purpose and meaning. Greg Reid wrote: “A dream written down with a date becomes a goal. A goal broken down into steps becomes a plan. A plan backed by action makes your dreams come true.” Tony Robbins writes: “Setting goals is the first step in turning the invisible into the visible.”
May your dreams fill you with inspiration, and your actions your fulfillment. Wherever your imagination and dreams take you, remember always the wise counsel of Confucius: “Wherever you go, go with all your heart.” And hold closely the beautiful words from the movie Titanic: “My heart will go on.” Yes, always. The best is yet to come… and it will come from your dreams.
Have a beautiful day and a magnificent week!!!
