Some people are natural dreamers. We can see into situations and how they could be different, or create entirely fictitious situations from the deep wells of creativity we embody.

I took me many years to understand that everybody doesn't have conscious contact with their own deep wells of creativity, or live confidently with their dreams as I do.

Seth Godin warmed my heart in his recent post about things we assume are in opposition to each other. First, he made me think hard when I read, "The opposite of yes is maybe."

Whoa, that's a powerful thought, isn't it? Maybe is non-committal. Maybe is stalling, deferring, failing to take a stand.

Then came the most heart-warming idea, "Dreams are not the opposite of reality. Dreams inform reality." Now THAT'S a deep keeper, isn't it?  It should be a poster - DREAMS INFORM REALITY.   Or maybe it should be engraved on my headstone someday, hopefully a long, long time from now.

Personal branding is the intersection of dreams becoming reality, in my opinion and in my practice. Until Seth's post, I hadn't thought about it this way. Thanks, Seth!
