Working toward the goal

Dreams do not instantly come true, and that’s a good thing. If your dreams were to immediately be fulfilled, you would never have the pleasure of dreaming them.

Anticipating an achievement contributes much of the value to that achievement. Having something to look forward to gives great richness to life.

It is good to achieve your dreams, and yet it is also good to hold on to them, to nurture, refine and appreciate them before they have been reached. By the time the dream is achieved, it has developed a real and profound meaning.

Working toward a goal is what makes that goal worth having. The fact that a goal, a dream has not yet been fully realized is what makes that dream so enticingly desirable.

Go ahead and dream big, wonderful, positive and intimately meaningful dreams. They’re the ones that will get you to move forward with energy and passion.

Your dreams do not come true in an instant, yet they will instantly begin to provide focus, direction, and a driving force. You can then enjoy each and every moment as you steadily bring those dreams to life.
