A Dream vs The DREAM

This is my 100th post and I am amazed and totally chuffed to have reached this milestone today! So to everyone blogging away, well done and to my readers and responders over the years on my blog posts thank you for your support:-)

So my post today is about ‘The Dream!’  As I watched Tyler Perry’s grand opening of his new studio built on confederate land, recognising the achievements of 12 amazing individuals who have meant a lot in their field and to him over the years. Like many I was wowed and amazed by his achievement. Was this always his dream?

Watching one of his video clips in which he encouraged viewers in 2012 to focus on one  thing as a dream and stick to it, I considered how well do I dream? Have I had one thing that I have always wanted to do?

People have dreams and aspirations all the time. But to have that one thing, that has you like “a dog with a bone” mentality, I believe is something else? The idea you cannot shake and it simply never leaves you. You know? That dream?

The analogy he used was you can water many seeds or choose to water just one seed.

That made me think. ‘What is that single seed for me?’

What am I watering?

Do I have a dream for my life or do I have ‘The Dream!’ Is it the hazzy, fluffy possibility of things I would love to do or is it that sharp clear huge solid, clear end result that just pulls you towards it relentlessly? How about you?

As a poor child in class his teacher asked the children what do you want to be when you grow up? The children responded ” I want to be a teacher, a doctor,” etc until it was his turn. Tyler responded ‘ I want to be a millionaire!’  Imagine how huge and ridiculous that statement would have seemed from a poor black child living in a poor neighbourhood? His teacher (who was also black) retorted you will never be that because you are poor and black!

There would have been no idea how this was to be achieved at the time. Details would be painstakingly worked out through the years. Through failings after failings until success finally decided to show up!

Believe success will show up!

The Dream – is an end result. The challenge is working at it and never giving up.

It’s that idea that feels hardwired into your core. Is it from childhood? I dont believe so.  Such a dream can arise at any age of life. What’s essential is what you do about it.

Dream killers come in all shapes, colour and statuses. For me the worst are those you trust such as teachers, friends and family. But, for sure know they exist and they are never shy in pouring their toxic water all over your dream. So be wise and protect what’s dear to your heart.

So this is me today. Not a huge post in words but it could be in outcome.

What is your dream? What are you watering in your life?  We are not all designed to become Moguls like Tyler Perry, but we do all have something to bring to life’s table. Are you clear on what that is for yourself, your community, your world around you?

Take time out and give it some thought today.

Be the person you want to see:-) Until the next post.

I am a mother, a grandmother and Christian, all an essential part of who I am. I happened upon Blogging and found out how to mesh something I have done through out my life which was encouraging those who were friends and family and my love of writing. In doing my usual personal development I came in to the world of coaching and totally fell in love with it and I am currently studying to become a Personal Performance/Life Coach with The Coaching Academy. I absolutely love writing and thought this would be good way to combine these three passions in one place. I hope you find my blog does what it says on the tin, which is to encourage readers with positive and motivational posts:-) Update: 23/3/14: I finally decided to put a face to my blog:-)
