Mindset Mastery 58 – Rewarding Dreams And Dreamers

Mindset Mastery eBookWe have the good fortune of having many great dreamers who have come before us. That has paved the way and made it all the easier to ignore the cynics. And just in case you needed reminding, we have these words of wisdom to do it.

Willing The Dreamer To Be A Doer

The modern world has become accustomed to new discoveries. Hence, today’s world has proven willing to reward a dreamer who gives the world a new great idea.

“The greatest achievement was, at first, and for a time, but a dream.”

“The oak sleeps in the acorn. The bird waits in the egg, and in the highest vision of the soul, a waking angel stirs. Dreams are the seedlings of reality.”

Awake, arise, and assert yourself, you dreamers of the world.

The modern world is filled with an abundance of opportunity past dreamers never knew before.

A burning desire to be, and to do is the take-off point where dreams begin to come into reality. Dreams are not born from indifference, laziness, or lack of ambition.

Scoff No More

The world no longer scoffs at dreamers, nor does it call them impractical. Too much good for the benefit of modern living has come from lofty dreams. Too many astounding discoveries have been made, resulting in ever changing and improving technologies, technologies we as a race embrace in pursuit of a better, richer way of life. Not so long ago, the idea of the technologies and inventions of today would only have been viewed as lunacy.

But we have all paid a price for the technology and gadgetry of today; a price that has often put us in a position of stressful defeat. This may even be the direct cause of your outreach for wealth creation. If you are one who has been disappointed and undergone defeat, find courage in knowing that these experiences have steeled your spirit and become assets of incomparable value.

Bouncing Back

We only stay in a position of defeat as long as we allow ourselves to—as long as we allow others to dictate our opportunities. What that means is that you are in control of your success, or your failure if you choose not to take that control. Take the control, dream the dreams, and be the doer who succeeds.

  1. Hi Sean,

    I personally believe that the majority to still scoff at dreamers but I soooo love this post, especially the phrase “The oak sleeps in the acorn. The bird waits in the egg, and in the highest vision of the soul, a waking angel stirs. Dreams are the seedlings of reality.” AND “If you are one who has been disappointed and undergone defeat, find courage in knowing that these experiences have steeled your spirit and become assets of incomparable value.” as it sometimes takes failure at something to succeed or set you on a journey to change your life. Very inspiring.

    Have a fantastic day and “pursue your goals with certainty”


  2. Thanks Eileen. Yes, I love that line myself.

    Hi Sean,

    You’ve written a lot of great posts but this is one of my favorites. The more I read posts like this the more it reinforces to me that I’m actually in control of my life and success.

    I realize that I have actually learned a lot from my failures. You are right; it has steeled my spirit. I am no longer afraid of failure. I have made huge mistakes and survived.

    This makes it a lot easier to dream of being successful. The scoffers may scoff at my dreams but I know one thing they don’t. I know I can really survive serious setbacks. I laugh in the face of scoffers.:)

    Also, I agree with Eileen. I, too, love that phrase.

  4. Hi Sean, great post.
    Especially the part about bouncing back. It is my choice to feel defeated or to take it as another learning experience and move on. Sometimes that can be pretty hard and devastating. Standing up again and again is the challenge. And posts like this help me to keep on standing up again after I feel knocked down.
    Thanks 🙂

    • Hi Renee,

      You’re right; getting up is the most important part of failure. I think that the quicker we get back up and start moving forward; the less we dwell on our failure.

      We just need to learn from the failure; not let it crush us and prevent us from trying again. It’s definitely not an easy thing to do but something we must learn if we ever hope to experience massive success.

  6. Hi Sean, it seems we are all in agreement. This post is succinct in its inspiration. The poetry reflects our spirits, and we respond. And, Eileen – when we look closely, there really are very few who don’t believe in dreams, otherwise how would video shops get by, and how would tales over an beer survive, and how would family stories get remembered – for they too contain dreams and ideals. We just forget what these things and many more really are. Maybe we could just start remembering a bit better, and we could once again see ourselves as inspirational.

  7. With internet marketing I have found that the key to success is doing and learning from doing things rightly and not so rightly. I dream of success so I do something, then I discover I didn’t do it well and find a better way. Each mistake is a learning opportunity that results in a stepping stone towards the success that I dream of.

  8. Hi Sean,
    The message is not to be frightened of failures because failure is only a temporary setback. The world is more open to entrepreneurial dreams in this day and age and is more willing to act on someone’s dream so that it may come to fruition.

    I can recall in my parents day it was frowned upon to be classified as a dreamer. Especially if it was a report from the school teacher.

    That has changed for the better and dreams are no longer considered to be a waste of time.

    • Hi Jill,

      I don’t think there’s a person alive who hasn’t experienced failure. But, it’s the way we process it that matters. I think a failure is only a true failure if we don’t learn something from the experience.

      We must be dreamers that take action. Yes, we’ll fail but we just have to get back up and keep moving forward to claim our dream. I think the world makes way for the dreamer that isn’t afraid to fail.
