Three Indispensable Ways Dreams Take Flight.

( There are two types of people in the world: those who are grounded and those who have taken flight. Dreamers who have taken flight are not necessarily those whose dreams have taken off, but there’s an important discrepancy here: better to be dreaming in the air than being stuck on the ground with wishful thinking.

The fact is we are born dreamers; it’s part of our DNA. Dreams are locked somewhere in our subconscious reality; no matter where we end up in life – they are there, waiting to be released.

The ways in which we give birth to our dreams are myriad. There are certain indispensable qualities of thinking that one must be in possession of in order for one’s dreams to become a reality. Here are three indispensable ways our dreams are born.

Dreams Are Born by Attitude

Happiness, writes Dale Carnegie, doesn’t depend on any external conditions; it is governed by our mental attitude.

Attitude is the most important of virtues; it can determine whether you soar or remain on the ground. To be sure, our mental approach can be sufficiently adjusted. Mental anxiety is the number one killer of dreams in life.

Many people are grounded by the lack of a proper attitude. ‘Pigeon thinking’ is hopping around on the sidewalk of life like a pigeon, afraid to dream, afraid to fly. It’s the attitude that keeps one disconnected from soaring to one’s greatest heights. If you have a dream for your life, you must nurture it with a good attitude.

Dreams Are Infused by Altitude

By ‘altitude’ I mean the urgent need to improve; to move up; to position oneself to take advantage of opportunity. How far up do you want to go?

By altitude we mean the height of an object in relation to its ground level. In short, how high a dream can travel. All dreams begin at ground-level – they begin where you are. If you have no money, zero capitalization and very little support, you can still have a dream.

Altitude comes as a direct result of the proper attitude. Or, as the venerable Zig Ziglar once said, Your attitude, not your aptitude, will determine your altitude.

Desire is the launching pad for dreams.

Dreams Are Sustained by Amplitude

Ever heard a person describe their big idea and how it’s going to create millions for them – then three days later they have no idea what that dream is all about? That’s because their dream lacks amplitude – it has no life of its own!

Amplitude is a physics term and denotes the distance moved by an object relative to its point of equilibrium. The amplitude of a dream is proportional to the amplitude of its source. That means your dreams have life; they echo like sound waves.

In life, it means how far your dreams move from the point of origin. There’s an old saying that goes, “I shot an arrow into the air, it landed I know not where”.

In other words, in order for dreams to take flight, they must become dynamic, they must move and become reproductive. Dreams must take a life of their own.

Anais Nin writes, Throw your dreams into space like a kite, and you do not know what it will bring back; a new life, a new friend, a new love, a new country.

Dreams are born by attitude, infused by altitude and sustained by amplitude.
