Perhaps what makes us different from all other animals on the planet is our ability to dream; To see an appealing fragment of the future, grab it, and bring it into the present, making it manifest through the alchemy of divine inspiration and human perspiration. Dreams just don’t happen, they take work; work through persistence, patience, wisdom, hope and faith. All of these aspects make humans different than other species too. What separates those who are happy from those who are not is the belief in oneself to make dreams come true. Those who manifest their dreams will tell you failure is part of their success, for no dream that comes easy is worthy of victory. Failure isn’t a sign of loss, stupidity or embarrassment; rather it is a stepping-stone to success, as so many people in Silicon Valley have taught us. Ask anyone who has ever creating anything of merit and they will tell you it first began as a dream. The combination of hope, faith persistence and effort is the road that makes dreams come true.
Stress Tip for The Day:
What dream sits on your doorstep? What wish do you harbor in your heart, that begs for the freedom of manifestation? Wishes and dreams are seeds that await fertile soil. That soil is your belief that you, indeed, can make it happen. Time to take action! Write down your dream/wish and set up a workable strategy to make it happen in the next 6-12 months. Persistence is paramount. So is will power. Belief in yourself is essential. And while hope is good, it’s not enough. As the saying goes, “hope makes a good snack, but a poor feast.” Good luck!

Quotes of the Day:
“You may say that I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one. I hope someday you will join us, and the world will live as one.” — John Lennon
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”— H. Jackson Browne
