I’ve had a dream for a few years and I have been gathering information about that dream. Recently, I decided to go online again to see what I could possibly get about the dream. I really wanted to take action but this time, something happened. I wasn’t just seeing information, I saw something that pricked me. In all the previous searches, I didn’t see anything close to what I came across recently.
While I was busy gathering information about the dream I still intend to work on, someone else was already working on a similar dream! This person wasn’t only working on a similar dream, the person had used the unique name I wanted to use! How did that happen? How come this person was thinking about exactly what I was thinking about? What’s the issue with this name?
The clear thing is that from the name, I could tell everything the person wanted to do since that’s what I also had in mind. Now the challenge is the fact that I was still gathering information while someone else had swung into action. The problem now is that I may not be able to use that unique name that I was secretly nursing. That immediately reminded me that when some dreams drop in our minds, it is very important to act fast on those dreams. If we do not act fast on our dreams, it would be extremely difficult to get some of those dreams to reality.
Aside the fact that we can lose momentum to pursue the dream, someone else might just get into that space earlier than you planned. When you have some types of dreams, it doesn’t matter what someone else is planning but it is not so with many other dreams. Who gets into that space first really matters. The person who becomes the identity of that new industry is likely to take all the money home and maintain a monopoly that will be difficult to break.
I understand we should plan when we have dreams and the planning can take a while but the planning shouldn’t go on for too long. As you are planning, there must be specific time frame given to the planning phase and execution phase. What do you want to do and when are you going to get started? Who is in this with you and what roles are they supposed to play? How do you intend to start and when exactly are you starting?
I remember a man who had the intention to write a book. He had the book written and this was about ten years ago but the book is yet to be published! He wants to get things right. He wants a perfect book. He wanted so many things and at the end of the day, the book hasn’t been published. You should do a good job whenever you are working on a project. Excellence has to be a signature you never compromise on but the quest for excellence must never be allowed to slide into an unconscious procrastination.
What are those dreams that you have been nurturing for a while now? Why haven’t you started working on the dreams? Why are you not taking the bold steps? Is it money? Yeah, so many people think that money is the real problem standing in between them and their big dreams. You will be shocked to see that the real problem may not be money and they probably could have gotten he dream off the ground without money. Some of you just need to make a phone call and the dream will come alive.
Why you haven’t started out on the dreams will always seem important but getting the dream off the ground and doing it fast will always be more important. Remember, if you don’t act fast on that dream someone else is already working on it.
