The importance of ‘Shared Dreams’ in leadership

Collaboration - Shared Dreams - Friendship

How frequently have you heard talking about their aspirations and dreams? Do other people’s dreams generally excite or inspire you? What really makes you care, and what needs to be done to make something more than simply a trivial exercise, but rather a significant aspiration and goal that leads to a more improved, better reality?

I am reminded of a famous saying, “A dream you dream alone is only merely a dream. A dream you dream together is reality.”

We have all rejected dreams that may have much importance to us and might have changed our lives, often because we did nothing substantial to make that dream a reality by realizing and working on it.

All of us need to have things we genuinely care about. When we believe in something, we do all we can to wholeheartedly share these ideas with others because we consider them to be relevant and vital.

Once we share an inner thought, a certain behavior is gradually manifested to strive for more rather than merely settle for what is. All prominent leaders have had ideas that motivated them to lead because they genuinely bestowed upon them a better reality.

Whether it was Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s “dream” or ex U.S. President Late John F. Kennedy’s seeing things that never were and asking why not, these exceptional leaders inspired millions by creating a vision others bought into and considered it to be significant. For dreams to turn into a reality, a leader must share with others why their ideas are so important and how achieving them would improve others’ lives. Efficient leadership only transpires when leaders lead, and that means urging others to follow. This can only be done when dreamy communication causes others to believe and adopt. It also means developing an action plan to produce the results, which can only occur when lots of people believe in a vision.

This is not only relevant as it pertains to leadership. Sharing your ideas with those closest to us becomes a bonding force that gets close family members, colleagues, and those closest to us to breathe, live, and genuinely care about achieving the dream. Adopting critical visions reduces irrelevance and pettiness and helps people prioritize what is most valuable to them. If they keep it to themselves, the probability of achieving greatness is sadly reduced because there are very few crucial things that we can achieve alone.

Pressing matters must never be dodged, but instead, we must understand that such issues push us to do more to achieve the craved result. Working together, collaborating, and letting others into our dream is a shortcut to success in the modern-day leadership field.
