Do you dream? What is a dream?

Here’s John’s take on types of dreams and the definition of a dream worth pursuing-

 “Take a look at many of the things that people pursue and call dreams in their lives:

 - Daydreams-Distractions from Current Work

 - Pie-in-the-Sky Dreams-Wild Ideas with No Strategy or Basis in Reality

 - Bad Dreams-Worries that Breed Fear and Paralysis

 - Idealistic Dreams-The Way the World Would Be If You Were in Charge

 - Vicarious Dreams-Dreams Lived Through Others

 - Romantic Dreams-Belief that Some Person Will Make You Happy

 - Career Dreams-Belief that Career Success Will Make You Happy

 - Destination Dreams-Belief that a Position, Title, or Award Will Make You Happy

- Material Dreams-Belief that Wealth or Possessions Will Make You Happy

 If these aren't good dreams-valid ones worthy of a person's life-then then what are? Here is my definition of a dream that can be put to the test and pass: a dream is an inspiring picture of the future that energizes your mind, will, and emotions, empowering you to do everything you can to achieve it.”
