Nightmares are a common form of dream that affects everyone on the planet. The good thing is, you can always wake up. The bad thing is, even though we know they are nightmares they can still effect our waking life’s.  Most people quickly forget about them as the day wears on. The real shame is that many people can be living in the nightmare that is their everyday life. So how do we live dreams not nightmares?

Vision without action is a daydream. Action without vision is a nightmare.  Japanese Proverb

There are times when we are not the cause of the waking nightmares in our lives. If you live in an oppressive country, were born into an abusive family, or have been struck by catastrophe, than you may have little control over your current situation. However most of our lives are a direct result of our actions, or in actions. Living your dream is always possible no matter the situation.

The only way to get out of a bad situation is to analyze why you are there, and what steps you can take to get out. The goal, of course, is not just to get out, but to establish goals and objectives to help us reach our dreams. It is allot easier to go through difficult situations when you have your eyes on a higher goal. I have a dream is not just the rally cry of a generation, it is the key to making the changes that are vital to the growth of an individual and a nation.

how do we live our dreams

So how do we live we dreams not nightmares?

Well you can begin to live your dreams by writing them down regularly, keeping them in front of you, regularly reviewing them, and actually planning out the steps to fulfill each one as the days and years go by.  As we begin to cross off the various goals and dreams of our lives, we will become excited and motivated to continue on reaching even more of our dreams. As any one who has accomplished great things knows this is easier said than down.

However this does not negate the fact that it is vital to help us increase our ability to live our life’s fully and successfully. Remember success has nothing to do with money, fame or power. Success is not some destination we reach, but a series of successes as we fulfill the various goals and dreams we set for ourselves and others. However since our minds do not work as well as a computer, the most important step is to write our goals and dreams down and begin to work on them one by one.
