About halfway through a long-winded conversation about unfounded and baseless dreams, like most other listeners, I find myself having trouble listening. We live in a culture where it is a good thing to have big dreams, but not a good thing to have realistic plans or have attainable goals. That’s weird, because you can do anything you plan to do.
Dreaming is a grand activity, a fantastical practice, a fantasy envisioned, and absolutely not real or tangible. However our dreams are powerful tools. We dream about wanting something, attaining our desires, then we talk about achieving it, how it would be! But there is no goal, no pathway to walk directly to it and take. We are stuck in the talking about it and that is about it.
So, in the time we listen, in the time it took for you to talk about it you could have written up a plan to go and make and create and have. Made a step A through finished, fruition, success, completion. I will attempt to listen though I would rather pull out pen and paper and set things in motion to help you do what you want to do, to help you become the dream master.
I am not therapist, not counselor, I am an ordained minister by request, though I feel I could charge for giving advice about planning. But I learned it for free in books. Just make a goals list each day and complete those goals. I do this because it is simple: nothing happens without being planned. I heard recently: there is no happenstance. Imagine. I think you should stop talking and make plans, you should do and show. Save the tell.

Billions of hungry people around the world have been served at Mc Donald’s, capital B Billions. That said, I will not be discussing food quality in this piece, I will discuss presence and how it as a resource is POWERFUL.
When you see those golden arches you are guaranteed that you can get a sweet happy meal, or some hamburger of some sort, always. They have the THERE FACTOR: they are there. Those arches are present. You are aware that if you drive up to a Mc Donald’s you will be served and get your food.
That feeling, that knowing is persistence. The feeling their presence gives is relief. Those arches are almost always there on some traveler’s journey. That is persistence, Mc Donald’s does it for you and billions others. Persistence is integrity imagined. Feeling makes us all feel. That presence is power.
Understanding this about presence is valuable.
So the next time you want to make a positive impact: Be the first one there and the last one gone. Every time. Be those golden arches, show those around you that you can be guaranteed to do what must be done to get the job done.
Also, be that inspiration. Show up early, do more than you must, stay longer, work harder, and keep coming back for more. You will win with patience and practice. You will take it to the top if you keep being there.
And here’s the reality: others may tire out, they may lose strength. You are not others. Go one more. Keep coming back and never give up.
When the outlook is impossible, prove the outlook wrong. Stand like those arches and don’t sway. Have the Persistence/There Factor, everyone’s Big Mac is waiting, you will give it to them. They will reward you. You will take it to the top if you never give up and keep trying. Don’t stop. Go.
