Giving space to our dreams

August 8, 2019

Without giving space to our dreams, at least in terms of finding time to work on them, it’s unfair to think they will become our reality.

So many people openly admit they want to do this or that yet fail to go beyond the talking stage. Giving space to our dreams is a commitment to ourselves to explore options and opportunities for the sake of achieving desired objectives.

Giving space to our dreams could be viewed by some folk as a selfish act. We may choose to counter such thinking by querying who else but ourselves will implement our dreams. Once again, the notion of being proactive makes an appearance. Nothing can come into being without effort.

Giving space to our dreams might involve blocking off chunks of our week to plan, prepare and initiate undertakings designed to lead us to the realization of our longed-for dreams.

Of course, in some instances, we don’t go about giving space to our dreams as, even if we never publicly acknowledge it, we prefer to keep our dreams as dreams. It is pleasant to lose ourselves for a while in thoughts centred on such dreams, but for whatever reason, refuse to do anything to bring them into being.

If giving space to your dreams in the form of a coaching conversation is something you have considered but not set the wheels in motion, let’s talk.

For now, thanks for reading this ‘Giving space to our dreams’ post.

Kindest regards.

Heart Poems Captured From Dreams

February 9, 2017


Along with our capacity to think we also have an ability to dream. Whether we follow our dreams with action remains, quite rightly, up to us to decide.

I produced Heart Poems Captured From Dreams because I wanted to offer some heartfelt words as an encouragement throughout the daily adventure called Life.

Combining with your existing knowledge and resources, Heart Poems Captured From Dreams might make the difference between ‘just going through the motions’ and ‘letting your light shine’.

The ability to live life to the full exists in us all. But being human we forget this from time to time. Accordingly, Heart Poems Captured From Dreams is aimed at helping you remember this as you go about being you.

A collection of poems from a person who is not a poet may appear a strange offering. Words, in any case, have an impact and it is hoped this small volume of ‘heart poems captured from dreams’ gives you something positive.

The words set out in Heart Poems Captured From Dreams were indeed captured from dreams. In certain instances the lines arrived complete. On other occasions nagging fragments forced me to sit and finish the thought.

Once the ideas were drafted, giving them an outlet seemed only right. Despite having written and published eight other books – admittedly all focused on my principal area of work involving coaching, training and development – the decision to release this first collection of poems was not easy.

Notwithstanding doubts, Heart Poems Captured From Dreams is available and you are here, so it just leaves me to thank you for your presence and wish you Happy Reading!
