In the previous blog, a picture was included displaying a possible Dreamwalk scenario. What did you notice in the graphic?
Were there cheerleaders on the sidelines? Many of us are blessed to have a couple or maybe a few supporters. But many of our onlookers are those that could be categorized as Goal Blockers. Referring back to the picture – the folks on the side of the road were not holding pom poms but were preparing to use weapons to stop us, as the dreamer, from accomplishing our goal.
Examples of Goal Blockers are: Relatives, Friends, pessimist, society, research data, etc.
The interesting thing about some of our Goal Blockers is they see themselves as helping or protecting you from failing. This is noble but not helpful in your growth as a successful person, inventor, innovator, strategist, etc. Failure or mistakes, if used correctly, can be your teachable moment to bring us even closer to fulfilling our dreams. So how do we transform Goal Blockers into tools? (We will talk more about this in future post)
Dream thought: Is our determination to accomplish our purpose stronger than the obstacles on our Dreamwalk path? Be WISE and UNSTOPPABLE!!!
When we first figure out that we have a dream, our vision is focused on how things will be once it is fulfilled. We may think about:
How much income it will gross.
How many people it will help.
How it will enhance our family.
How happy we will feel when we cross the graduation platform.
How it will help our children or grandchildren.
But before we arrive to the accomplished goal, we have to take the walk…THE DREAMWALK. We get excited about how the walk is going to be so easy, we predict. And if we hit a glitch, it will be nothing to fix it. We imagine – a stressless or a minimal bumpy path. But here is a possible DREAMWALK scenario:
In the future submissions, we will discuss the various pieces of the DREAMWALK and what it takes to acquire the goal (Journey Survival Tactics).
Dreamwalk Action(s): Look at the graphic above. Write down – What are your obstacles? And why?

Before we go further into the Dreamwalk…What is your Dream?
I am challenging you to step out and think big!!! Any vision that you could finish tomorrow, with no assistance, is probably not a dream. It could possibly be a step towards the final plan.
Do you have the desire to:
Earn a degree?
Start a business?
Become debt free?
End homelessness in your community?
Become a part of you country’s government?
Whatever it is (and it can be more than one item) – WRITE IT DOWN! Do you believe enough in your life’s purpose to put it in black and white? If you do not accept it to be possible, you will sabotage its fulfillment.
Are you in or out? Make a choice – don’t sit on the fence. If you are not the forerunner of your own dream, who will? So take the first step and WRITE IT DOWN!
Dreamwalk Action(s): Get your portfolio, journal, composition book… Write down your dream(s).
Welcome to Dreamwalk!!! I am so excited about sharing, with you, the adventures of Marriage, Parenting, Business, Homeschooling, etc and WALKING OUT DREAMS. But even more enthusiastic about encouraging you in YOUR VISION, GOALS, PURPOSE, DREAMS (whatever you want to call it).
When you first recognize your DREAM It can be both extremely exhilarating and scary (possibly horrific). So join me as I provide an open door to how it is to think, implement and deploy purposeful aspirations.
