Be aware of your dreams and Goals


Hi, my name is Kumar. I am working on a mission to help people realize their true potential and live their dream life.
Yesterday, I was with a group of 5 young executives, who was working for the last 5 years in one of the reputed banks of this country. I asked them, “Do you know what the difference between dreams and goals is?” Surprisingly, they answered in negative. They are among the top 10 per cent of the population when it comes to earning. I know they are hardworking and bright and in a couple of years, they will be handling important assignments like in-charge of the branch. So, I was expecting them to know regarding dreams and goals. But when they could not answer, I remember what Brain Tracy once said, “Most people fail to set goals, because they do not know.”
          Today we are living beyond the information age where we are bombarded with information. So, it is easier to access this kind of information. Probably, the flip side of it is it has made these things complicated. However, the goals setting and achievement is simple.
Any way my discussion with the young executives proceeded further and I asked another the question, “what are your dreams, you tell me you 5 most important dreams.”
“I want money.” Said One of them.
“How much and why do you want money.” I continued.
“I have never thought about how much, but I want to live a free life.” He said.
“You are in a Bank, and that means you want to be free from your job.”
“O, I am a little confused.” He admitted that he was no clarity about his dreams.
Then I told them, “When you make a timeline for your dreams it becomes your goals.”
Then our next topic of discussion was about books. I asked, “Look, you all have been working in the bank for the last 5 years. Apart from banking subject, have you read any book after you came to a job?”
Out of those 5 young and bright executives only one of them read books after they joined their job.
Isn’t it a valid reason why so many people fail to succeed in life? Of course, it is.
Every day we feed ourselves to take care of our body. What about the mind. Why don’t we feed our mind? Does not our mind need food? Food for thought. How can we feed our mind? I think reading is the best way. Is it so difficult to read? I do not think so. It’s a matter of priority only. The average hour they spend watching television is not less than 20 hours a week.
These are simple things which many of the people are unaware of. And this makes my goal stronger-goal to help people realize their true potential and live their dream life.
Let us dream together and make them real. Do not be afraid of dreams. It does not hurt. We must be aware of our dreams and we must talk about it.
I am here to listen to your dreams. You can share your dreams with me.
Keep growing.

Have Single-Minded devotion To Your Goal

To succeed in your mission, you must have single-minded devotion to your goals.                                                                                                A.P.J. Abdul Kalam
Once you are clear about your dream, you can make it your goal.
How can you make your dream your goal?
When it comes to goal setting, it should be divided into short term goals and long term goals. There is no such categorization which goals can be short term goals and which can be long term goals. You can keep those goals under short term which can be achieved in one year. Long term goals are your dreams. The goals that you want to achieve 2 years down the line or 5 years, 10 years or 20 years down the line. Goals like owning a beautiful house with beautiful garden having swimming pool, at calm or serene place, plenty of space to play with children and spouse, owning fleet of luxurious cars, owning stud farms, exotic vacation, optimum health, financial freedom, time to pursue recreation activiti…

Take action for your dream

There are several traits which take to be successful in life. You need to have dreams and goals. You need to have a plan to achieve those goals. There are people who have a positive attitude, positive thinking, a burning desire, clarity of goals, and the entire essential ingredients required to be successful in life. However, they are not where they want to be and doing what they should be doing.  Then what is that mission link? The missing link is the effort. The effort made on a consistent basis.
         Jim Rohn, a famous motivation speaker and author, says “Affirmation without discipline is an illusion.”
       If you have everything but you do not have self-discipline, your dreams and goals will go away from you. This lack of action will not produce the desired result, resulting in discouragement and depletion of self-confidence.
