Turning Your Dreams Into Reality.

A professor was addressing a group of college seniors on the subject of opportunities. The lecture began by tacking a big sheet of white paper to the wall and placing a black dot in the middle of the sheet. "What is it you see?" he asked, pointing to the paper on the wall. "A black spot," called out everyone in the class. "Yes, I see a black dot too," replied the professor, "but none of you mentioned the much greater expanse of white. This is the point of my talk on opportunities."

It is all to easy to focus on the black dots or the immediate tasks that face us each day. Yet how often do you grasp the opportunities that no one else notices in the white space of your life? Do you ever find yourself daydreaming? When you do, you're visiting that white space. The question is: Do you recognize your ability to bring those daydreams to fruition? Look around. Do you find yourself envying what others accomplish? Perhaps you can learn from their example. All they have done is to act on their dreams and goals to recognize the value of their white space then put a plan into motion.

Is there anything missing in your life? Right now why not try filling in those blanks, the white spaces, with a plan to help you in the achievement of your dreams? Maybe a legal pad and pencil can help. Try making a list of every dream you've ever had. Write them all down. When you finish, place an asterisk next to the three you would most like to accomplish. Finally, make those three items the black dots upon which you will focus until completed. Once identified, it becomes much easier to concentrate your attention on them. Opportunity is knocking are you going to answer?

All The Best,
