04 Jan Create Your List of 100 Dreams
Do you have your goals written down? There’s this study done by Dr. Gail Matthews, a psychology professor at the Dominican Univerity of California. She found that you become 42% more likely to achieve your goals and dreams, simply by writing them down on a daily basis. 42%!
At Floyd Coaching, when our clients go through our Dream Manager coaching and training experiences, we ask them to create their list of 100 dreams. Most of them look at us like we’re nuts. 100 Dreams! That’s a lot of dreams. The program is based on Matthew Kelly’s book The Dream Manager. In the book, he shares the twelve areas of dreams physical, emotional, intellectual, spiritual, psychological, material, professional, financial, creative, adventure, legacy, and character.
So think about it, if you add between eight and ten dreams in each category, you get your list of 100 dreams. Some categories may be easier than others to add to. Most of us have financial, material, and professional dreams. But what about character, adventure, and creative dreams? I find most people aren’t even sure what to add to their creative dreams. They’ve given up on their creative pursuits and passion projects. In my book Do What You Love I share the seven myths stopping people from pursuing their passions and how to overcome them. We feel most fulfilled when we are tapping into our creativity and allowing ourselves to fulfill our dreams in all areas of life.
My challenge to you today is to write your list of 100 dreams. Stretch yourself in the areas you haven’t yet fully explored. Give yourself permission to dream big and have fun with it.
