I get a lot of emails from people asking me what’s the difference between a dream and a goal. I get asked this question often because so many fail to achieve their goals. The reason so many fail to achieve their goals in life is because they are confusing dreams and goals.
A Dream = Some Future Outcome. A Goal = Some Future Action
Dreams provide you with the vision of where you want to go. They are your blueprint for your future life. You can’t achieve a dream. You can only realize a dream.
Goals are your construction team. They are the workers that help transform your dreams into reality. You can achieve goals only through action.
Too many confuse a dream and a goal. They seek to achieve a dream. Dreams can’t be achieved. They can only be realized. You realize your dreams by creating goals around each one of your dreams and then pursue each goal by taking action. Dreams require a vision of some future objective. Goals, on the other hand, require that you take actions that will transform your dreams into reality.
