“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.”
The happiest and most successful people are involved in doing something that they enjoy doing or are living a life of purpose and passion. One of the ingredients of happiness is doing what you enjoy most but unfortunately many of them do not know what their passion is.
A dream is a blueprint of a person’s purpose of life and potential, an inspiring picture of the future that energizes and empowers the mind to do everything possible in order to achieve it.
Most people have a dream. Some want to achieve something in life, and some want to become successful as a professional, businessman, a celebrity etc. Different people have different dreams such as day dreams, bad dreams, wild dreams, vicarious dreams, romantic dreams, career dreams, destination dreams, materialistic dreams etc.
Some people are positive and are happy to disclose their dreams while some are pessimistic and are afraid or embarrassed to talk about their dreams due to fear, lack of self-confidence, past failures, discouragement, and lack of imagination or are just willing to settle down for the average.
The planning process of personal and career dreams is abruptly interrupted or paused by getting focused on another major milestone in life which is Marriage. In a majority of households getting daughters married is a dream come true project.
When the focus of attention is shifted to marriage and wedding, the dreams of the would-be bride and bridegroom are refrigerated or paused temporarily. After marriage few of them are able to thaw and refocus on their dreams. A majority of them are forced to suspend or abandon their dreams either due to additional marital responsibilities or due to resistance and opposition from the spouse or in-laws.
Whoever forms a partnership are usually aware of their dreams and targets and pursue them until they achieve it. However, in a marital partnership when couples do not have a dream to pursue or are forced to pursue their dreams individually it leads to myriad conflicts and problems. If one of the spouses has a dream and is discouraged by the partner or in-laws, his/her dreams fades away or are permanently canned.
Those seeking marriage should be aware of their own and their partner’s dreams. This awareness will enable them to nurture and achieve their dreams as a TEAM.
One vital question before embarking on the marital journey would be to ask:
