Looking at various social media platforms, it appears everyone is shifting dreams into action plans and then into a glorious reality.
In an ideal world, this is the case for us too. With our imagination we create a set of desires, then go about shifting dreams into action plans, bringing details together to achieve the objectives.
Yet this ‘perfect picture’ does not take into account the existence of inevitable fears of failing, or even more terrifying, of looking foolish as we do so. Additionally, we may not have been brought up with the modern mindset of ‘Success at any cost’. Without this, our efforts could appear limited to others.
However, this is not to say we are settling for a life in the shadow of ourselves. We strive to accomplish what we can, with what we have now. Nevertheless, without the accompanying pictures posted on X, Y and Z, our efforts of shifting dreams into action plans come across as, whisper it softly, boring!
And, unfortunately, we rarely stop to consider whether others are actually happy doing what they are doing, or the extent to which they might even be a little envious of our lifestyle put together based on our values, rather than on those promoted by ‘society’.
Shifting dreams into action plans is, from this viewpoint, a question of perspectives.
