Time to Dream

I'm a dreamer, a visionary of sorts.  Yet I have always found that there are settings and situations that keep me from dreaming.  Ben Arment captured this thought for us in a recent blog post .  Read on (and thanks BEN):

The Life of a Dream Chaser

I'm going to be transparent here... dreams keep me going. Dreams of what's possible. Dreams of the future. I have an aversion to the pastand an annoyance with the present. In fact, I have a hard timeremembering things from my childhood. Each move, each transition has felt like a new sector in my mental hard drive. The experiences are there, but they feel like a whole other life. It's the way I'm wired. I've got my eyes on what's ahead... always. And it doesn't matter what I'm going through, what I'm enduring... as long as I've got a dream for the future, I'm good.

Know what I've found to be the two biggest barriers to accomplishing dreams?

  1. The standard of living to which I've grown accustomed
  2. The nay-saying of other people

It's never capability.

Of course, it might be, but most of us never find out for sure because we get tripped up on these two hurdles. Dream-chasers have to find away to remove these factors.
