It is time to light your fire! To ignite the afterburners and get serious about your Dreams. The holidays are wonderful times and provide time for reflection and self evaluation. You may have discussed your Dreams with relatives over the holiday table and found them not as receptive as you had hoped. If today your Dream meter is low because of input from the relatives, it is time to recharge your Dream. If you Dreams are super charged because of input you received from your relatives, than you are blessed.
You probably didn’t think much about how the relatives would react when you brought up your Dreams! Most believe that since they are your Dreams, and because your family loves you, they will be excited for you. That is not the norm and it is usually more detrimental to share your Dreams with them, with many a Dream being crushed by loved ones.
If this happened to you, shack it off. Pick yourself up, and possibly take into consideration some of the input you received that could be helpful to you. Go back and reflect on your goals and why you have the Dreams you have. Remember that many times you receive negative input from others because you are sharing your Dreams, and they are jealous because they don’t have Dreams. Or, their Dreams have been stomped on by someone else, so they are passing on the same treatment. I am not discounting the love of your relatives, just their actions, as you should too. You can still love someone, without having to agree with them, or take their advice.
So today, review your Dreams and begin developing your game plan for the coming year. We are on the doorstep of December 2009 and the month is an awesome month to work on our Dreams as we celebrate the Christmas season and prepare for a New Year.
This year you won’t be setting mindless New Year’s resolutions that have no hope of being remembered after February! This year you are planning out your Dreams for the coming year and beyond!
