Some of the people around you may not encourage you to dream. They believe you need to be “realistic” to succeed.
Yet business people dream all the time; they call it “visioning.” It helps them to set goals and move confidently and successfully towards their futures.
Good things can happen if you let yourself dream
Give your dreams life:
- Research the work you want to do.
- Assess your strengths, skills and attitudes.
- Learn the skills you need.
- Set goals that take you toward your dream.
- Reassess your dream and your goals regularly.
What can happen if you have a dream and decide to pursue it?
People learn best when they have a need or a reason to learn. You may not be excited about writing, but if your dream is to travel the world and immerse yourself in indigenous cultures as an anthropologist, you’ll need to get English 30 to enrol in anthropology at university.
So you learn to write reports. And whether you end up in anthropology or not, you graduate with a diploma that opens a lot of doors, leading to other possible dreams.
