I was just reading up some of the questions my LinkedIn contacts were asking and came across a rather interesting one, asked by F.Xavier Garcia:
Who wants to share a dream ?
I am a “Professional Dreamer” which means I like to listen to people’s dreams, see how many are in common with mine and how we can manifest them faster. All my dreams are bold and ambitious, my main dream is to leave the planet in a better state than it was on the day I was born.
Wether or not F. Xavier really gets this done is not the point here, what is important is that he still dares to dream, in a world that is so full of corporate drones that sometimes one feels like an outcast as a dreamer…
One person offered an answer that more than underlines my above statement:
Dreams are like rainbows. Only idiots chase them.
And even though the statement was most probably meant to contain a humorous undertone, it seems to be the sad truth. Too many of us have lost track of their (original) dream. People, especially males, get sidetracked easily. A new business opportunity presents itself, a new hobby and suddenly, the original dream is not important anymore.
In closing, I think the way Kent Dryer put it is spot on:
What about making an impact on others? Too many of us are selfish and are so wrapped up that we have a hard time making a difference.
Dare to pursue your dreams, it will make you a happy ( / happier) person.
