Forwarding Dreamers

My mom (probably like most moms) forwards lots of emails to me. All kinds of stuff ... politics, quotes about loving yourself, warnings about men grabbing women in parking lots ... it's all well intentioned but I tend to delete quite a bit of it. She knows this. We've talked about the fact that I don't have time to read it all.

But every once in a while she'll send me something that I'm super thankful for. This is one of them. As wonderfully cheesy as it is, I loved getting this forwarded email from her this morning.



Your dreams are your visions of where you'll be after the battle, your prize at the end of your journey to success.

Your goals are the steps you take to finally attain your prize.

Unless you're willing to work hard and establish some discipline in your life, all of your dreams will be pipe dreams, little mental fantasy trips that will never materialize.

Make concrete steps toward fulfilling your ultimate dream, and start with solid objectives called goals.

Your dreams are where you want to go - your goals are how you get there.

The first indispensable step to getting the things you want out of life is this: decide what you want.

Don't be afraid to think big and dare to be great.

Dreamers are not content with mediocrity.

They never dream of going half way.

People with goals succeed because they know where they're going.
