Without leaps of imagination, or dreaming, we lose the excitement of possibilities. Dreaming, after all, is a form of planning.

Gloria Steinem

In a fast-paced and results-oriented world, those who dare to dream big and outside of tradition often face criticism from family and friends for not focusing on and securing a job, any job, and instead having their heads in the clouds. Dreams, however, allow you to explore different possibilities and inspire you to identify the steps you need to take to achieve the dream. So whatever your dream—establishing your own business venture, joining a non-profit, having 3 letters for a title, or becoming a pastry chef—remember that you first need to acknowledge the dream as a possibility. With that first step behind you, a plan is already in the works and all you need to do is execute the plan.
