Over the years I've learned a lot about vision and what it means to have a dream because it's such a critical part of leadership. I've observed that there is a big differences between those who dream and those who make their dreams come true. According to Nolan Busnell, founder of Atari, said, "Everyone gets an idea in the shower but the successful ones get out of the shower, dry off, and do something about it."
Here are the stages in developing a successful dream;
1. I Thought It Stage;

Some receive it in a time of prayer while others are motivated by an event from their past. Maybe you've already experienced the "I Thought It" stage and discovered your dream. If you haven't, read the following five steps that will help you clear away the clutter and discover your dream:

2. I Caught It Stage;
The moment you discover your dream the thing you were created to do is an incredible experience but that alone is not enough to take you on the success journey. The development of a successful dream is a process and the next step of development requires you to invest in your dream emotionally. It needs to grow beyond your thoughts and carry over into your feelings.

An old italian proverbs says, "Between saying and doing many a pair of shoes is worn out" lots of people have dreams and many of them have strong feelings about them. But what separates the developer of a successful dream from a mere daydream is committed action.
