Both of the following are necessary, but how are dreaming and realism balanced?
It's just a matter of talk the talk and then walk the walk. Dream it and make it happen
Do they really need to be balanced? I believe both are parts of each other. Dreaming helps us to create the reality we want and reality helps us to determine what we are dreaming of.
I prefer the term "visualisation" than dreaming - but the two are quite similar. When we visualise what we want, and feel the emotions of what it would feel like once we've achieved it, that sets energy in motion to help bring it about.
In terms of balancing - I don't see them as two sides to one coin, more linked concepts. We create our reality in each given moment, and, whilst it's important to dream/visualise, it is in the Present Moment that we take the action to bring the dream about. Live in the Present Reality, and visualise the new reality you wish to create, whilst taking action in the present reality to create the new.
With realistic goals and lots of achievable short term targets.
Dreaming helps set the goal. And if you pay attention, dreams may even give you answers that can help you reach the goal or solve a problem you've been struggling with. However, we live here, in the physical world and in order to achieve the goal you must also be willing to take action here. And the actions have to be in accordance with the rules of reality; there are only 24 hours in a day, 7 days a week, things cost money, you have to write the article or hire someone to write it for you and so on.
The dream is the most important thing, vision is what it's all about. Realism comes it with what it will take to achieve the dream and that means the details of generating the dream and the commitment to persist. Realism is setting the steps into motion.
Coaching can be metaphorically seen as a bridge between the current disappointing situation and a successful, satisfactory future.
So, at the very base of coaching (that is in the phase of the macro-objectives definition), there is a visioning activity: the coachee has to imagine and "pre-live" the desired situation, aligned with his values, ambitions and reality. Once defined, verified and challenged, the goal is confirmed and the coachee is accompanied in the definition of a concrete action plan.
So, here you are a second bridge: from imagination back to reality.
In order have a vision of where you want to be in the future you need to be able to allow yourself to dream. Dreaming empowers you to know what you are passionate about. When you know your passion then you can easily seek out opportunities to feed your passions. Reality dictates what opportunities are presented to you; therefore your reality is defined by your ability to acknowledged the truth and facts of your current life. With truth comesthe opportunity to identify which of your dreams are achievable and when.
Dreaming is essential to achievement. It's what drives and motivates us to get somewhere we're not. Realism comes in in the action. If you dream and dream and don't do anything, you'll get nowhere. The balance is in holding a big dream, and taking small steps towards your dream every day.
just use your whole brain :-).
There's time for everything. Nothing can be achieved before it's thought or dreamed about- it's the idea that gives birth to the realization of anything.So -dream,imagine- realize.
Through faith. You have to believe that you are on the right path. You have to believe you are taking back your health. Everything else follows if you have faith.
