Dream is a tricky word here.
When we say dream we are now positioning it as something we think about when we go to sleep at night.
Perhaps if you want to go on your “dream trip” start calling it your “next trip”.
Start a fund. Book a flight. Make arrangements.
Then it can’t be a dream anymore, it’s now a reality.
Dreams are great. We need them. But dreams have a funny way of amplifying the narrative, “That will never happen.”
