What if you Dreamed…Again?

(Please share this with your friends on Facebook and Twitter)

Today I sat next to a couple on the plane who were on their way to Las Vegas to get married. I was prompted to share this poem with them by  Samuel Taylor Coleridge.

What if you slept 
And what if 
In your sleep 
You dreamed

And what if 
In your dream 
You went to heaven

And there plucked a strange and beautiful flower

And what if 
When you awoke 
You had that flower in you hand

Ah, what then?

What if you dreamed again?

What disappointment stopped you from dreaming?

Maybe you kissed too many princes or princesses who turned into frogs.

Came across too many princes or princesses who wanted you to enthrone and worship them.

Missed the career opportunity of a lifetime?

My encouragement is that you dare to dream again.

Then wake up and make it happen.

And watch the flower appear in your hand.

I am a licensed psychologist and management consultant and have always been intrigued by how leaders can inspire people in their organizations. The bottom line is that people are not always motivated by material rewards, the use of the carrot or the stick, fear and intimidation,and command and control, Five human needs inspire and drive us. Kristine S MacKain, Ph.D and myself describe these inspirational forces in our book "What Inspirational Leaders Do" (Kindle 2008)
