Goals are not dreams.

What happens when dreams come true? And how do you stay hungry, thirsty, and driven when you have attained your dream?
I have come to realize that goals can sometimes dress us up as dreams, and when they do dreams lose their sweetness.
A dream attained continues to inspire, continues to feed on itself and ask for more. The dream becomes a bigger dream, and provides more dreams. It keeps you on your toes.
A goal attained, if confused for a dream, can be quite debilitating. It doesn’t fulfill, it can even lead to complacency. That’s where it stops. It doesn’t continue to bear fruit or to inspire.
I’ve learned the hard way that I need to really search within to find my dreams. Because I have achieved many of my goals, but goals alone don’t do the trick for the heart and soul.
