Has this happened to you before?
By Donovan Grant
Are you someone who remembers your dreams? From time to time I've been able to but to be honest a lot of my dreams seem to drift away as easily as they came. In fact when I awake in the morning it can be just a big blur.
The thing is- this is not the case for everyone.
Today I met a colleague at work who I shall call Mike (to save his blushes). Mike was visibly buzzing and he asked me "has this ever happened to you before?" And before I even had a chance to say "what Mike?" He continued…
"I was asleep and having a dream last night and then I heard a sound that suddenly woke me up. But when I woke, I had the vision of a stream of words passing in front of me like watching a TV screen. The words didn't really make sense, so I thought I's quickly jumped up, grabbed a pen and wrote them down anyway."
"As it was 3am, I was struggling to get back to sleep, so I just laid awake asking myself the question 'what could these words mean" – Mike says after a while an answer came to him. The words seemed to form the basis of a slogan that he needed for his new business venture that is in the early stages of creation.
It turns out that he had a couple of intense business meetings during the evening and he had been discussing themes, ideal clients and the value that his business idea will add.
Now some would call this the subconscious, some would call it a vision and others would say that its God's way of staying anonymous. Whatever it is, Mike is one happy chap and he has ticked off another one of his things to do towards his number one goal already for this year.
How weird is that? Has that ever happened to you, where you awake with an idea that solves a problem that you've been struggling with.
I don't know about you but I'm always open to learn new things and listen to different ideas. Maybe even our biggest challenge could be resolved by asking your self the right question.
Are you up for trying? Here's a great question for you to think over with any challenge that you are having…
"If I was to totally believe that anything was possible for me this year, what is one goal that I would go for 100%, no holding back?"
Dreams do come true, so let's make it happen!
