Dreamers are people who believe big things can happen. They look at the world through a lens of possibility and abundance. Their potential is only limited by their ability to dream, take chances, and make things happen.
I think that last point is most important when I think about the value of dreamers. Making things happen, that is.
Lots of people dream. In fact, I truly believe that everyone dreams. Most people learn to stop dreaming so much when they succumb to the “real world”, but everyone starts off as a dreamer. Which means that dreaming isn’t especially significant.
I think the significance comes from the doing. Not just the doing, but executing with excellence. That’s not to be confused with perfection. Excellence is reaching for my potential to the greatest of my ability given the timeline and circumstances.
The true value of dreamers comes in the doing. Because doing means impact. And impact means the world is becoming a better place.
I’m all about the impact. And the most valuable dreamers? I believe they’re all about the impact too.
P.S. Now that I’ve called myself out, I guess I better get to doing.
(Shout out to Willie Jackson for inspiration for today’s post. Can’t really put it into words, but the guy speaks to me and I like his style. His current writing challenge has made me reconsider the excuse that I don’t have time to write on this blog. Thanks Willie.)
