More on Dream Setting Below
Having worked with so many high-performance athletes during my career, I know one thing: promises and goals lack the power to change your life. We have to go bigger. We have to dream.
Dreams are more powerful than goals, despite goal setting being the traditional method for building motivation. They inspire us to new heights. Dreams are our deepest and most dearly held hopes and aspirations. Dreams capture our imagination. Dreams create extraordinary motivation and transformative change. They enable us to live differently.
Unfortunately some people think that setting dreams is somehow hokey or silly. It’s not. Dreams are a powerful and effective way to find the motivation you need to achieve more.
You need something that powers you to do more. You need dreams that can drive you to be better. Dreams give you a flame in your heart that ignites passion. If you think about what Olympic athletes look like when they win – exhilarated, thrilled, excited, energized – you will have an image of what the fulfillment of a dream can do for you.
