Everything begins with a dream. Take the first step in creating a new reality: dream big. If you could do anything, what would you do? This first step is to find a dream that you are passionate about, something that you would walk to the ends of the earth to accomplish. This Playbook is almost all about this first step: how to dream!
Once you choose a dream and commit to making it happen, now it is time to begin planning your journey. What steps do you need to take to reach your destination? What supplies will you need to bring with you? When will you begin? What will you do in case of bad weather? Declare your commitment to the world. The more people you inspire, the merrier.
Once you have mapped out your dream, you just have to do it. Sounds easy, right? The only thing separating you from your dream is participation—taking steps of action, trying and modifying, overcoming physical and emotional obstacles, and remembering to savor the accomplishments every step of the way.
We wrote a whole book just about this first, most important and arguably the most challenging step called — obviously — Dream It! We break the dream process into even smaller steps and walk you through the whole process step by step. But we won’t leave you hanging there. Soon well post resources for mapping (planning) and playing (doing). So, stay tuned for more free online content and games to teach you how to map your dreams. And help us vote on new content in the Sandbox! We love to test everything.
