What Kills a Dream?

1. Growing up – the mindset that it’s a foolish dream and was OK when you were younger but has no place at the ‘table’ of adults.

2. Doubt – thinking you have neither the skills nor the abilities to execute the dream.

3. Unbelief – who in their right mind would entrust such a dream into your care?

4. Procrastination – taking time to verify and question the dream when the reality is you are afraid to start the journey.

5. Lack of Vision – you may start but without direction, you easily veer off course.

6. Lack of a Plan – the devil is in the detail. You need a plan, call it a roadmap, that charts your course to the dream.

7. Perfectionism- waiting for everything to perfect or perfectly executed before you start – really a fear of failure.

8. Fear- the what-if-it-doesn’t-work-out thought which often succeeds in paralysing you.

9. Lack of delegation – thinking you have to accomplish every part of the dream yourself and then not doing anything because you are unable to do it yourself.

10. The size of the dream – focusing on the vision can be overwhelming and can lead you to abandon the dream entirely.

  1. To keep dreaming, we have to keep believing and remain inspired with the smallest things. It is a mindset. What can happen, WILL only happen if we allow ourselves to hope 🙂 great post
