There is something profound about dreams. Your alternative vision of the future. The better version of the world as you see it. It inspires hope and rallies support.
Dreams give us a sense of purpose. It challenges us to think about what we could do.
It also scares us. It seems impossible. It could even incapacitate us. So we don’t share it. We keep it locked up and hidden.
Dreams are like water. When kept to ourselves they freeze into cubes that our capacity can manage. When we start to thaw out our vision with advisors and confidants it melts. It becomes malleable and versatile. It changes its shape until we are ready to present it to the world.
When we do, the heat of the scrutiny and feedback turns it into gas. Suddenly, your vision fills the available space.
Bravery is the first step.
