Literally millions of people struggle on a day-to-day basis just to get through the day--their dreams either long forgotten, partially conceived, suppressed or just not clear. Yet it is the very thrust towards achieving one’s dreams that keeps one excited about life.
It’s interesting that nowhere in history can one find a place where dreams are discovered, fashioned, molded, repaired, shined, and made to come true—a “Dream Factory.” What if such a place was to exist--a place where an individual could pinpoint his strongest interest and/or passion, and through an efficient, caring process of specific real steps see that they are manufacturing their dream?
To quote a well-known philosopher, “It’s not man’s dreams that fail him but his inability to make them a reality.” Bernard Percy and his career study and consulting organization, “The Foundations of Brilliance” assists someone to be able to determine the educational or career direction that will help their dreams come into being. www.foundationsofbrilliance.com
Other examples of how these tools and services could be used would be in schools to assist students in discovering their purpose for being a student—showing them that what they are studying now will lead to a future achievement of a goal or purpose they have. If all one’s children have grown up and left home, and a mother doesn’t have a new game to play, this would assist in rehabilitating her own goals. If someone in prison wanted to turn a new leaf but didn't know how to do it, this could help them to see what alternatives they have to change old habits that landed them in the situation they’re now in.
The process is a simple one, once a person has located their dream or goal, step by step plans would be fully developed to assist in moving the person from where they are on the subject or profession to where they want to be. Their progress would be monitored with regular contact, the appropriate materials and resources provided that will make sure that the person is making it through to their next step.
The story of the Warner brothers is an example of individuals with a huge dream who came from nothing. Despite the odds against them, they treated every stop or barrier as an incentive to take their next step rather than a reason to quit. Using my family as an example, I'd like to encourage others with this philosophy and way of life.
Therefore, The Dream Factory motto is “If you can dream it, you can make it happen.”
