I remember way back in the day.
When I was living in the dorms.
It was my second year in college.
And me and a couple of buddies were going to some adult oriented places.
Strip clubs, etc.
And we took this one “new guy” with us.
He was a pure academic type.
Only wanted to study etc.
Until we got a hold of him.
After we got him his very first lap dance, he shifted.
Before we left he was “I don’t know… are you sure it’s OK?”
But after his lap dance, he was, “Dudes! Let’s to that place over there!”
A clear transition.
This is ONE difference between expectation and reality.
A RARE example.
Dreams Always Bigger
Most of the time we have an expectation that is WAY BIGGER than reality.
This is a natural function of human ambition.
To keep dreaming about things WAY bigger than we can possibly get.
This motivates us to keep trying.
This is we have all this stuff.
Because of our never-ending dreaming brains.
In any given society, we only need a few dreamers.
To dream big enough, and consistently enough to get folks on their team.
To keep making more and more stuff.
Edison was so desperate for raw “ideas” to turn into things (and income streams) he would sleep while holding round weights.
Then when he’d drift off, he’d drop the weights and wake himself up.
Then he’d write down all the ideas flooding into his brain.
In that magical creativity that happens between awake and asleep.
Only a few people need to be the active-dreamer types in any society.
But we all have that dreaming capacity inside us.
And this dreaming capacity is very, very easy to wake up.
The super genius types don’t really need any prodding.
Most of us do.
Most of us have our dreaming, fantasizing minds taken care of by popular fiction.
To watch and go along for the ride.
Few folks can’t dream on their own, at least in very much detail.
At least naturally.
But you can help them.
But asking them questions to purposely get their dreams bigger and bigger.
And once their dreams are big enough, made clear by you, they can reach “escape velocity.”
When they are no longer content to keep their dreams in the land of make believe.
When their dreams turn into active, behavior driven desires.
This is the best part.
This is the raw material of creative human ambition.
And since you were the one that helped with their dreams, they will naturally look to you to lead their behavior.
Anywhere you want to.
