From Daydream to Passion

What is it you daydream about?

The reason it’s so important to pay attention to our daydreams is because those that are positive, uplifting and fun may hold the key to our Passion. Many of my clients tell me they don’t know what their passion in life really is, and I say “Pay attention to your daydreams!”.

Daydreams hold rich and abundant information.

If your thoughts tend to go toward something that feels good, for example planting a garden, stay with it and see where it leads you. You may wonder where you would plant a vegetable or flower garden and you begin to play with ideas of arranging a plot. You may like the idea of planting, tending and reaping the rewards of your care and attention to this garden. You might even imagine sharing the fruits of your labor and love with friends, family and neighbors! Even though you may never have planted a vegetable or flower garden before, or even think you have the space for one, you just can’t help thinking about it!

You actually may be stumbling upon a passion! If nurtured and not dismissed you may find you have a love and a talent for gardening. And there are so many ways to create space . . .

Maybe you daydream of starting your own business – what a great daydream! Jump in and investigate what it would take and how you would go about doing it. You just never know what the outcome will be. It feels amazing to move toward something you’ve only, until now, daydreamed about!

Perhaps you daydream about social justice. Do you dream about fairness, equality and compassion for all people? Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. is a great example of someone who had a daydream that became his Passion! He didn’t worry about what others thought of him. His dream was so powerful and important that he stepped into the role of a leader of his own personal daydream and encouraged others to follow him. He created the amazing potential for real change. His passion for his dream is one of the most inspiring of our time.

So, what is it you daydream about? Feed your daydreaming curiosity. Try doing what you dream about out and see if you like it. NO, see if you LOVE it! More often than not, you’ll find that you will.
