Forget About Goals and Dream Big

Here’s how to live a dream-driven life.

Goals matter.

Life coaches, business owners, the world’s most successful people will confirm it.

Just a few months ago, a friend of mine, owner of a prosperous ad agency with six-figure revenue, told me proudly that she doesn’t have dreams. She has goals.

That made me shiver inside.

I understand where she’s coming from. She sets a goal, achieves it, then sets the next goal. She moves forward, she grows. Who has time for dreams?

Yet, a life without dreams doesn’t seem like a life worth living to me. Looking back, I don’t think I’ve ever achieved anything significant by setting a goal to achieve it.

When I quit my job, I tried to set a goal of what I’d become afterward and completely failed. I became something entirely different, something that made me much happier. I only became that, though, because I allowed myself to ignore the initial goal and go where the heart takes me.

The same thing happened when I met my now-husband. I was living and working in London back in 2012, a year before the UK allowed citizens from EU countries to be legally hired (without any additional legal drama, that is). We all knew that was coming, and I had plans, nay, goals to stay in London and grow professionally.

Then I met my husband, who was living in Bulgaria, and three months later, I returned to my home country. Because my dream of having a happy family beat my goal for climbing the corporate ladder. And because something inside of me told me that he was my man.

That’s how powerful dreams are. Dreams lead you to a better life without you even realizing it. But I’m getting ahead of myself. Here’s why dreams are much better than goals.
