It might seem unfair to put ourselves on the spot by asking such a blunt question as “Are you collaborating with or fighting your dreams?” After all, in theory we are constantly building our desired life with our daily efforts.
In reality, of course, a certain amount of any day is given over to merely getting ourselves through it in as least painful manner as possible. Survival, perhaps not the right term yet valid anyway, is not something to be scoffed at.
Instead of asking “Are you collaborating with or fighting your dreams?“, we could choose to see the issue more as one concerning the extent to which we are embracing opportunities to put our values into action.
Collaborating or fighting suggests a stark contrast; most likely the overriding intention is one of doing our best in all situations and believing in the ripple effect this will have on subsequent instances.
Our dreams, those held securely in our heart/mind and the principle motivation for all we undertake, leave little room for distractions. “Are you collaborating with or fighting your dreams?” as such answers itself.
Setting our plans around the required input leading to the fulfilment of those dreams likewise leaves no space for any doubts over the answer to “Are you collaborating with or fighting your dreams?”
