Day Dreaming

Remember daydreaming?


When we were kids, we naturally looked forward to and imagined the future.


That’s daydreaming.


Who did you want to be when you grew up?


The purpose of daydreaming is to program your brain to help you go where you want to go, kinda like a GPS.


Daydreams use the power of our thoughts and our feelings to drive our actions.



I couldn’t wait to be a big kid and ride the school bus.


To be a teenager. To go on dates. To drive. To graduate High School. Go to college.

Find that awesome job. Get married. Buy a house. Have kids. Go on vacation.


Then it stops.


We’re too busy going to work, taking care of the kids and the house, and paying bills to dream anymore. We forget how to do it.


We lose the ability as our minds are so focused on doing instead of being.


When we’re more focused on doing than being, we lose our joy.


But we can rekindle daydreaming and use it to increase creativity and motivation.


Research has shown that people who daydream are more likely to reach their goals.


Sports psychology uses this method.

The athletes imagine or dream about their performance ahead of time.

It directs their brain on how to take action.

It’s like practicing mentally instead of physically.


We can do this too.


Dream about your future. There’s still a lot left.


Who do you want to be?


What do you want to do?


How do you want to do it?


Be specific. Imagine the details.


What does it look like? How does it feel?


When we were kids daydreaming came naturally because we had plenty of time and a lot less to worry about.

But now we have to be more intentional. It takes some effort, but it’s so worth it.


Who do you want to be?


Program your brain by daydreaming.
