Are You a Dreamer or a Doer? We MUST be BOTH to Succeed!

“Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach the stars to change the world.”
Harriet Tubman

A few years ago Donna and I moved to Baker City, Oregon. It was our intention to start a new conventional business… an Adult Foster Home.

We contacted Dean Baxter, the Baker City State farm agent, for homeowners insurance. He promptly came over to question us and take pictures of the home and property. He listened intently as we told him all we planned to do with the property. He often he raised an eyebrow yet without a comment… as if to say, “Really??.”

One year later, when he came back to renew the policy he looked around and emphatically said, “Wow. Last year I wasn’t sure if you were doers or dreamers. Now I know that you are doers.” I quickly responded, “NO. We have to be Dreamers AND Doers to succeed. Because, if people are just dreamers they can envision all sorts of things and come up with a plethora of great ideas yet be totally broke. On the other hand if you are a doer you can be a model hard-working employee at a J.O.B. (Just Over Broke.)”

I continued, “Dean, if we are both dreamers and doers we can dream big dreams and do the necessary action required to accomplish them.”

In my physical therapy profession I always told my patients “If all you have is a dream then go to sleep and dream about it because it will not happen unless you put the right kind of action to it.” I apply that same strategy with the people I coach in business- building.

    I like this post and am trying my best to be a dreamer AND a doer; trying to utilize the Law of Attraction and keep it positive. I can see myself “on the other side” and am trying to walk over the correct bridges and stones to get there. Great post!

    So true!  We are nothing without our dreams. But only by taking action will we ever see our dreams come true.
