In South Pacific, Bloody Mary sings "You've got to have a dream. If you don't have a dream, how you gonna have a dream come true?"
In the movie by the same title, Jack Nicholson muses "What if this is as good as it gets?
If this is as good as it gets, then there is little point in moving on, but if you have a dream of greater things, you have a reason for being. What we call dreams are really goals with some window dressing.
Treat your dreams seriously and treat them like goals. Examine your dreams, figure out the best path to realize your dreams and take the first step down that path, one step at a time. In the Christmas Special "Santa Claus is Coming to Town" the advice is sung in a song "You just put one foot in front of the other and soon you'll be walking 'cross the floor. Just put one foot in front of the other and soon you'll be walking out the door!"
Remember Walt Disney, one of the greatest dreamers of our time or before your time if you are younger than I. Walt started a business in one of the most corrupt and scrungiest industries of his time, an amusement park and he based his fortune on a mouse of all things! Walt said "Trust in God, Believe in Yourself and Dare to Dream!"
