Are you are Dreamer? Or Goal Driven? What is the difference

Goal Driven!

Goal Driven!

Posted By Lee Anne B

Beyond Freedom Evolution has helped me become Goal driven instead of just dreaming of the things I want.

Dreamers are people that think about the future, have some lovely things they think about, that they wish they could have. They imagine what it would be like to have those things, but see them as only dreams, things that could not possibly happen to them.

Goal Driven people have goals written down, a plan of action. They are 100% certain on what they want and take the action to achieve those things. They know everything there is to know about what they want, they see those things as already real to them, they are just waiting for the day to arrive. It is not about if, but when! Certainty is really the biggest difference.

The saying goes, “If your goals are not written down, you don’t have goals. They are dreams!”

How do you go from being a dreamer to goal driven? All you need to do is write your goals down, become really clear and detailed about what you want and get to a place of certainty where you know that these goals are reality for you.  If a goal looks too big to you, break it down into smaller chunks – easier goals that you see as attainable and once put together create that larger goal you’d really like to go for!

Something else that helps me gain clarity, is writing some affirmations around my goals which affirm that they are true… a list of I AMs.

    I distinctly remember being one of those people Lee Anne. About 26 years ago, my husband and I were driving through a lovely neighbourhood, saying, wow, we would never be able to afford a home like the ones we were seeing. What a limiting way to think! But we can only do the best we know with the knowledge we have. When we change our thinking, we change our results. We’ve been living in a home like we thought we would never have for almost 20 years:)

    At that time, I was definitely immersed in masses thinking. I had not found my own inner strength, although it was always there. BFE teaches us to find our strength and our potential.

    It is vital to take consistent, persistent actions toward what you want in your life. A dream or a goal without action is still a dream or a goal. Nothing happens until you are willing to play full out, to do what it takes, for as long as it takes. That is a trait of all successful people.

    Lee Anne, you are such an inspiration to me within our community. You have proven to me 100 times why I want to be in action and not just a dreamer. Sometimes we just need to see someone we know achieve what we only dream to achieve to send us into action. The Beyond Freedom Evolution community has been the big game changer for me. Constantly keeping me striving for life changing results. Now my dreams feel more like a reality and that’s more than I ever could dream for!

  3. Lee Anne B says:

    Absolutely agree Debbie, Beyond Freedom Evolution really does teach us to find our potential in all areas. Thanks Anna for the lovely comment. You are totally on the path Anna, Using your Beyond Freedom Evolution, keeping plugged in and being consistent with your business and your daily activities, those goals are on the way x

    I too “dreamed” about having the perfect relationship (prior to meeting my hubby). All evidence to the contrary my results were a reflection of my actions (not pretty).

    When I crystalized my goal of meeting “the one” and together causing a juicy, honey-dripping, passionate romance I found Mike. He did NOT just pop out from under a rock. I went to parties, on dates, friend’s do’s, online, etc to open up the opportunities to meet him. I gave up limiting beliefs like “he’ll just use me” and “he’ll eventualky move on to marry someone else” and just played FULL OUT! I created myself as trophy wife (the ultimate prize) instead of a mistress playing 2nd fiddle to another woman.

    When I met him I gave up the monkey chatter about not liking his shirt, he wasn’t tall enough, didn’t like his goatee, don’t like shave heads, yada, yada, yada. Instead I affirmed that he was the one, because I said so, and would make me laugh always. I created him as the best date ever and guess how he showed up?

    4 years married I still thank BFE daily for giving me this man. I would never have even noticed him if I had not done the work on myself to clear my head space ready to receive his love.

    This is so important to me this post Lee Anne, forever I have had my dreams and goals stored safely in my head. It has not been until recently that I listened to Rachel Krider’s goal setting tips and tools that I became much more focused. Isn’t it funny how we go along thinking we are doing the right things, but sometimes there can be just a couple of small changes that make the difference. I actually even asked if Rachel could put that call back up in the line up section as it is definitely a tool we all overlook. Cheers and Thanks Lee

  6. Lee Anne B says:

    Wow love it Elizabeth, you are one very powerful creator and yes I would say that you have turned those dreams into goals for sure and then smashed them out of the park. Beyond Freedom Evolution I am sure has been an awesome tool and road map to assist you in making those distinctions.

    Leisa great that you have realised this and taken action 🙂 Taking those dreams from your head and putting them on paper is the first step. I loved the Polaris Global training call Rachel did also on goal setting

  7. Alison W says:

    So cool Lee Anne, I love that you write your goals as affirmations with “I am”. It actually put you in the goal and makes it a reality. I will certainly add that to my goals process.

  8. Lee Anne B says:

    Thanks Alison, Glad I could help. I have been doing this for a while and love reading my I AM’s each morning 🙂

    Sounds like you raised your deserve level Elizabeth, which is such an important part of creating a life on purpose. If we expect to better our lives in any area, but we don’t believe we deserve it, we will continue to receive the same results in a different form. So you could very well have attracted the same type of relationship as you had previously just with a new person. We see this all the time in society. Why do people go through a divorce, and get right back into a relationship that is so similar to their last?

    There is a lesson we learned many years ago at one of our conferences from Michael Losier called contrast through clarity. The idea is to make a list of all the things you don’t want, and then on the other side of the page, make a list of what you do want. It helps you identify through the contrast of the two lists, what you are looking for. It is a simple concept, but highly effective, and helps you raise your deserve level and gain full clarity on what you want going forward. The key is don’t settle. Go after what you want and deserve. And like you Elizabeth, everything falls into place:)

    I learnt at a Tony Robbins seminar that it all comes down to belief. If you believe in your written goals and are true to yourself, then your purpose will get you there. Thanks, just motivated me to do up another goal board!

  11. Penelope D says:

    Beyond Freedom Evolution reinforces that “staying the course” enables me to remain in “goal driven” mode & having the ingrained attitude that “the only way out is winning”.

  12. Lee Anne B says:

    Adam – Absolutely. I love Goal Boards (Vision Boards) and love when you realise that you have completed most of your board and need a new one

    Penelope – It sure does Penelope, Staying the course and remaining goal driven is a big key

  13. Pam B says:

    Beyond Freedom Evolution. A winner all the way with the encouragement to stay on track and stay motivated. Once a dreamer but now a winner. Thanks Lee Anne.

    Goal Driven is the way to go. To jump out of bed each morning with excitement knowing that what actions you have set for the day, will bring you closer to your dreams and reality, is something that only a few people ever know anything about. But we have an opportunity through Polaris Global to share this feeling and reality with other people. Isn’t that a great feeling!!!

    To be goal driven, you need to develop the “Be, Do, Have” mentality, so that you can dream about actually having your goals now, then doing the actions to achieve that goal, so that you can have them.

  15. Lee Anne B says:

    Thanks Pam 🙂 Glad to hear

    Darryl I agree to be goal driven coming from Be Do Have is a key element for sure 🙂

    Hi Lee Anne,
    I have always been a bit of a dreamer, but would like to be Goal Driven.
    I like your comment – If a goal looks too big break it down into smaller chunks.
    Beyond Freedom Evolution – certainly a winner.

  17. Lee Anne B says:

    Absolutely Nola, bite size chunks is the easiest way x Realising you are a dreamer is the first step to becoming goal driven
