“A shattered dream could be a sign of a concrete goal being present.” #bgdtcoaching.
Thinking about a shattered dream may seem very negative, lacking in optimism. It is that if we stop at first impressions. Anything broken is often viewed as being worthless, unable to be deemed as possessing value at all.
Yet from another perspective, a shattered dream could be a sign of a concrete goal being present. We might consider a dream as an imaginary thing, a concept alive only in our mind or heart. And we smash it by creating a specific goal, one capable of motivating us to reach our objective.
Once the shattered dream is out of the way we can turn to focusing on the goal it has been replaced by. As the saying goes: ” A goal is a dream with a plan attached to it.” And as we follow a plan leading us to our desired destination, momentum will surely take us forward.
A shattered dream yes, broken optimism no.
