Remember that adventure I talked about in September; the one where I was packing my curiosity right along with my clothes, cosmetics and high school French? Well, it paid off in spades as my trip to London, Paris and their outlying areas included fresh meaningful experiences that have influenced me for my lifetime..
What made the trip most meaningful though, from the first idea that brought it to life to the last detail attended to when back at home, was the fact that it was created and experienced with a Dream Team.
Why? Because Dream Teams create synergy, promote fresh ideas, elevate outcomes and always support healthy dreams and objectives. I have different teams for different dreams and if you don’t have any teams for your dreams, it’s time to create them.
Meet my Travel Dream Team. We’ve been conjuring up vacations for the past few years based on the must-visit-in-this-lifetime locations on each of our bucket lists. While we all travel independent of each other there are also times when we share a vision and hit the road together.
It’s in those decisions to experience something jointly where we become a powerful Dream Team because we each support a shared vision, engaging and expecting each other to play a part as we transform our dream into a reality. The outcome? Amazing, exciting and unforgettable … every single time!
Together we are more energized and powerful than alone.
The same is true for you and any dream, any aspiration, that you have. While it’s vital to be a dreamer, the power comes when you are willing to create a winning team committed to bringing your dream to life. Not a village, a tribe, a community … A DREAM TEAM! There’s great power in these words.
Choose a Dream Team of visionary, passionate and results-oriented people. The collective talent of dynamic individuals, loaded with belief in you and packing a no-excuses approach, always call you to a higher level of thinking and to your greatness. Pick the right person to play the right role, whether they perform a specific task, hold you accountable, connect you with resources, or cheer you on.
The beauty of a Dream Team is that they really do make a difference and make the journey easier and a lot more fun.
Now, on to your dream. Think of it as a deflated balloon, ready to have some serious air pumped into it. Each member of your Dream Team, when brainstorming possibilities and holding you accountable to action, begins to inflate the balloon. The more they add in the form of ideas and solutions, the bigger the balloon grows, infused with the team’s creativity, energy and belief. As the balloon expands, there continues to be more room, inviting and allowing even more inspired ideas and opportunities for success.
The open-mindedness you will experience with your Dream Team is like helium, keeping your dream lofty and buoyant.
Whatever your dream, give yourself the incredible gift of building a Dream Team. It’s a simple yet powerfully effective process. I promise you it is worth the risk of sharing your vision and the effort of collective creation. It’s a beautiful road to worthiness and achieving your dreams as you courageously embrace mutual purpose, talent, creativity and influence.
And me? I’m going to continue doing the same! I know that we are not meant to be solitary creatures and our imaginations are sparked and results so much more significant when we go it together. No matter if it is a personal dream or professional goal, I’m taking all the right people along!
