January the 13th is Make Your Dreams Come True Day. This unofficial holiday honours all those who have had the courage to pursue their dreams and make them a reality. From Bob Dylan, who composed music and lyrics based on his own dreams, to James Cameron, whose masterpiece Avatar was also based on an incredibly colourful and vivid dream he once had.
Dreams are a part of daily life. We all dream when we sleep, but most of us rarely remember our dreams. The dreams we do occasionally remember and that inspire us to make our lives better are the ones that Make Your Dreams Come True Day celebrates. These dreams motivate and encourage us to take on new challenges and inspire us to succeed in our personal and professional lives.
So no matter how big or small your dreams may be, today is the perfect opportunity to make them a reality. Thousands of dreams are not nearly as impossible as we think, they just require a little planning, some hard work and most importantly the courage to try in order to be fulfilled. Here are three simple steps that will help you make your dream a reality.
Step 1: Create a plan
There are lots of ways you can go about making your dreams come true, but the first step is to create a general plan. If you have been dreaming about starting your own business, create a plan. The thought of this may seem somewhat daunting, but there are many free online models available to help you get started. We recommend Visma Business Planner.
Step 2: Decide and believe
In order to make your dream a reality, you have to commit to it.
Decision + Belief = Commitment.
So decide you want your dream to happen, believe it will and it can.
Step 3: Take action
Figure out what you need to do to make your dream happen, then go for it. Take action daily.
It is important not to let the time it may take to achieve a goal discourage you, as acclaimed motivational speaker Earl Nightingale said, “Don’t let the fear of the time it will take to accomplish something stand in the way of your doing it. The time will pass anyway; we might just as well put that passing time to the best possible use.”
So if you have a business dream, take the first step in making that dream a reality today. Visma Business Planner is your roadmap to success.
Happy Make Your Dreams Come True Day.
