10:50 AM

         1.   Dreamers who dream only on small dreams. Many people whose greatest achievements in life are  behind them. A person who dreams in the past is a person whose life is over. That person needs to create a dream in the future in order to come back to life. It is also people who  still celebrate in getting good grades, being prom king or queen, graduating from a prestigious university, or being in the military. In other words, their best days are behind them.

        2. Dreamers who dream only on small dreams. These types of dreamers will dream only small dreams because they want to feel confident they can achieve them. The problem is, even though they know they can achieve them, they never do achieve them. These type of dreamers are often the most dangerous. They live like turtles,  tucked away in their own quiet padded room. If you knock on the shell and steal a quick look in one of the openings, they often take out and bite you. The lesson is let dreaming turtles dream. Most are not going anywhere and that is perfectly fine with them.

         3.  Dreamers who have achieved their dreams and have not set a new dream. This is an example of someone who has successfully achieved his dream and continues to live in the dream. “Twenty years ago, I dreamed of becoming a doctor. I became a doctor and now I am just bored with life. I enjoy being a doctor but something is missing.”

       4.  Dreamers who dream big dreams but do not have a plan on how to achieve them...so they wind up achieving nothing.   These people say, “I’ve just had a major breakthrough. Let me tell you about my new plan,” or “This time things will be different,” or “I’m turning over a new leaf,” or I’m going to work harder, pay off my bills, and invest,” or “I just heard of a new company coming to town, and they are looking for someone with my qualifications. This could be my big break.” “Very few people achieve their dreams on their own. People like this often try to achieve a lot, but they try to do it on their own. People like this should keep dreaming big, find a plan, and find a  team that will help them make their dreams come true.”

         5.   Dreamers who dream big achieve those dreams and go on to dream bigger dreams.  Most of us would like to be this kind of person. The network marketing business encourages people to dream big dreams and achieve their big dreams. Many traditional businesses don’t want people to dream personal dreams.

                                                KILLING THE DREAM

“Be aware of people who want to kill your dreams. There is nothing worse than a friend   or loved one killing your dreams.” There are people who may innocently or not so innocently, say things such as:

   1.   “You can’t do that.”

   2.   “That is too risky. Do you know how many people fail?”

   3.   “Don’t be silly/stupid. Where do you come up with such ideas?”

  4.  “If it is such a good idea, why hasn’t someone else done it before?”

   5.    “Oh, I tried that years ago. Let me tell you why it won’t work.”

People who kill other people’s dreams are people who have given upon their own dreams. 

“People who dream small dreams continue to live lives as small people.”

Questions to consider:
  1. What goals did you set for yourself when you were  starting out?
  2. To be worth a million pesos by a certain age?
  3. To own your own business?
  4. To do a lot of traveling?
  5. To learn to play a sport or dance well?
  6. To gain a sense of inner peace?
  7. What do you consider your greatest accomplishment and how does that accomplishment measure up to your expectation of yourself?
  8. Do you consider yourself today the person you started out to be?
  9. If your Doctor were to tell you tomorrow that you were suffering
  10. from an incurable disease and had only a few months to live, what   you most regret not having done?
  11. Where do you want to be five years from now and what would you       like to be doing? How about 10 years from now? 20 years from   now?
  12. Who are the people you admire most and what could you do to be   more like them?
  13. What do you least like about your life right now, and how would       you like to change it?
  14. Are you able to devote enough time right now to the people who     mean the most to you?
  15. What would make you happy or, if you already consider yourself   happy, happier than you are today?

There may be obvious questions,  but the answer are neither obvious nor easy, They require a lot of soul – searching and probably some fact – gathering as well, because you may not have the information you require to know specifically what you want.

To help you identify your dream. The question are  broken down into 7 specific areas:

     1. Where do I want to live? 

    A majority of the successful people attribute a great measure  of their success to a wise choice of place in which to live and work.


  2. What kind of work do I want to do? 

   There is no more need to be working at a job you hate than there is to continue living where you don’t want to be or the excitement had meant more than the money.

     3. What interests do I want to explore?

    The right location sets the stage, the right career gives you the resources, but the end purpose of both is – or should be – to enable you to pursue your passions coincides with your pursuit of a living.  Supposed you knew that  you had only 5 years to live, How would you live those years? What experiences would you like to have? What interests would you like to pursue?

  4. Did I marry the right spouse?

            You can be living in the land of your fantasies, holding down your

           dream job and enriching/inspiring your life with the pursuit of your

            interests, but if you’re not sharing all this with your love ones,

            your life will be as sour as month long milk. Part of the process

            is to take a hard look at your personal life. Try marriage

  counseling if you’re not happy.         


   5. What do I want to give back to society?

      The reward available to those who help others can’t be bought

       with money. It’s a feeling that there’s a streak/line of

      decency/politeness within you and we find most rewarding is

      when we can offer direct help to  individuals. We have never met

      a happy selfish person. We need to have our skills in order to

      make ourselves a valuable member of society. We can be living

      where we most want to be, doing what we most want to do, 

      pursuing the interests closest to our heart and sharing it all with

      a partner’s who seems heaven – sent and still not fulfilled. If that

      description sounds familiar to us, the restlessness we feel could

   be eliminated by a gift of time and talent from us to society.


   6. How many years do I have in which to accomplish my


      A lot longer than we might think, the longer we live, the better our

      chances  for extending life well beyond normal  expectations.


      7. How much risk can I stand?  

      How much is required if you’re to realize your dreams? So with

      life ‘Nothing ventured’, nothing gained. You can’t get to  the fruit

      without going out on a limb/branch. In order to live an exciting

      and rewarding life,  you’ve got to confront our fears of  change

      and only by doing so will you  ever discover that moving to a new

      location on changing jobs or even professions. Isn’t all that big

      a deal? The more we risk, the more we potentially gain. So how

      much risk is involved in chasing our dreams? How great a price

      must we pay? 

  Pricing Your Dream

 "The fulfillment of any dream, no matter how small or big, requires an expense of mental, physical and emotional energy."
