Just as an architect lays out the plans for a house, when you sit down and dream, you are mapping out in your mind what you would like your future to look like.
Do you want to live in a big house or a small house? Do you want brick, wood, or concrete? Do you want it to be modern, quaint, or regal? Just like building a house, you need to ask yourself questions about what you would like your future to look like and then make plans accordingly.
What do you want your legacy to look like? Do you want a family? Do you want a corporate job? Do you want to work for yourself? Do you want to travel? Do you want to have a hobby? Do you want to be an influencer in society? Do you want to make a difference in the lives of others? If you could be wildly successful at anything what would you do? What kind of future do you want to build?
Your dreams are just the beginning.
Dreaming is the first step in mapping out your future. Successful lives do not just accidentally happen. It takes time, dedication, and intentional living. To build the most valuable future you need to lay a rock-solid foundation.
Have you made time for your dreams this week?
Remember to envision what you want for your future. Take the time to think about what it will look, feel, and be like. Just like you imagine what home you want, imagine what life you want. Use your imagination to see what you could be capable of accomplishing.
Build a future that you will be proud of, not one of perfection, but one of growth. Keep on growing, because if you are not growing, you are dying!
