Miller's Musings: Put Your Dream to the Test

Today marks the debut of a new type of post. It’s called Miller’s Musings. Actually you’ve read a couple of my musings already. Periodically I’ll share my thoughts or break away from the interview format in some way. This week, I’m encouraging you to pick up a book I just finished reading. John Maxwell’s "Put Your Dream to the Test" is one of the best books I’ve ever read. It has the kind of practical perspective we are after here on Sam’s Dream Blog.

Let me give you a few examples of Maxwell’s comments before you go out and grab the book:

"A dream is an inspiring picture of the future that energizes your mind, will, and emotions, empowering you to do everything you can to achieve it" (Put, xiii.)

"If you have a clear vision, that will eventually attract the right strategy. If you don’t have a clear vision, no strategy will save you" (25.)

"Dreams by definition are not supposed to start with reality. They are birthed with hopes, desires, and possibilities" (45.)

Pick up "Put Your Dream to the Test," and tell me, what’s a dream you are working toward? Perhaps a book has inspired you to pursue your dreams lately? I want to hear!
