I Beg To Differ: Dream Vs. GoalA Lesson by Carrie Ann G
Is there a difference between a dream and a goal?
We all have dreams, right? So, what is the difference between having dreams and making them come true?
Let’s go consult a dictionary shall we?
Dream: “a condition or achievement that is longed for; an aspiration.”
Goal: “the object towards which an endeavor is directed; an end.”
So therefore, Dream tends to be passive while Goal is all about action.
In other words, you can dream big and you can dream small; heck, you can dream all day and all night long if you want but (yes, there is a but here), if you want to make a particular dream come true, you need to put it into action. You need to set a goal, a directive, have a game plan on how to turn that dream into reality.
“Dreams can inspire you, but goals can change your life.”
Do you have a dream that inspires you? Then let it guide you. Motivate you. Drive you until it becomes a reality.
