If you dare to pursue your dreams then you can make all your dreams come true. Walt Disney is an example of using courage as a powerful tool to turn dreams into reality.

Once a dreamer, Walt Disney believed that ‘if you can dream then you can do it’. He gave life to his dreams and imagination through his cartoon characters Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck. His dreams transformed his life, gave birth to many animated movies and the theme park Disneyland.

“If you can dream it, you can do it.”

– Walt Disney

If you are courageous to believe in your dreams willing to take the calculated risks, embracing and learning from your failures, then nothing is impossible and nothing can stop you from achieving them.

“Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.”

– Thomas Edison

Thomas Edison’s life is a story of an indomitable spirit of perseverance who never gave up his dreams, embraced his failures, learned the hard lessons from his past mistakes, and has 1,093 U.S. patents and 2,332 patents worldwide.

The Edison Innovation Foundation is committed to educating the next generation of innovators and dreamers using Edison and his Invention Factory as the foundation to support his legacy.

“Persistence is very important. You should not give up unless you are forced to give up.”

– Elon Musk

The tech contemporaries Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos's persistent hard work and efforts transformed their dreams into big tech companies with sheer resolve and never-ending spirit.

What habits or their traits makes these dreamers so special? We all have many unfulfilled dreams and unanswered questions wanting to know how successful people carved out their path from the struggles they faced.

The following 12 habits will help you identify the missing pieces of the puzzle you are trying to solve to make your dreams come true with the right mindset.

12 Habits to Master of Successful Dreamers

1. Wake Up Early and Start the Day Fast

Wake Up Early

“Early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise.”

– Benjamin Franklin

The early morning hours are so peaceful and quiet. If you set your bedtime earlier and wake up early, it will make you feel that you have more control in your life as it gives jumpstart and confidence of having more hours in the day to work without any pressure.

Some studies have shown that 50% of self-made millionaires wake up at least three hours early;90% of executives wake up before 6 am on their workdays to get a head start on the day.

Sir Richard Branson said that “Over 50 years in business, I have learned that if I rise early, I can achieve so much more in a day, and therefore in life”.

2. Take Time to Relax and Exercise

“Sometimes the most productive thing you can do is relax.”

– Mark Black

By taking time to relax with a cup of coffee and newspaper then followed by exercise early in the morning, catching up on your emails, your day seems to be more productive as it relieves you of stress due to the long hours you will have on the day.

The following are the benefits of a minimum of 3o minutes of exercise,

  • It helps people to maintain a healthy weight.
  • It reduces the feelings of stress, anxiety & depression.
  • Builds and maintains healthy bones, muscles & joints.
  • It improves the energy level as the body produces more mitochondria.
  • Regular exercise improves the quality of sleep.

3. Plan Your DAY in Advance with Goal Setting


“Plans are nothing; planning is everything.”

– Dwight D. Eisenhower

Plan your day in advance by creating a goal checklist; write down your short-term and long-term goals with a specific timeline; act on the goals on a monthly, weekly, and daily basis.

Be SMART in setting the Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Rewarding, and Time-specific goals. Setting goals that are specific, measurable, achievable instills discipline and gives you direction.

To make sure your goals are clear and achievable, each one should be;

  • Specific (simple, sensible, significant)
  • Measurable (meaningful, interesting)
  • Achievable (agreed, realistic)
  • Relevant (reasonable, results-oriented)
  • Time bound (time-based, time/cost limited)

Track your progress towards your goal on daily basis, analyze what went wrong, and revisit your goal setting to make changes to the action plan.

When you complete a goal, it gives you a sense of accomplishment and satisfaction that will drive you to your next goal with the renewed energy.

4. Read a Lot of Books

Read Books

“A room without books is like a body without a soul.”

– Cicero

Books are very important for the mind, body, heart, and soul. Reading books makes you an empathetic and calm person as you get to understand things and people better. The more you read more you get to know about life and the correct steps to guide you to your dreams.

Reading books helps develop your time management skills; also improves the communication skills as it increases your vocabulary.

A book is a dream you hold in your hand. It unlocks your mind, stimulates your thought process, and lets you think out of the box.

5. Take Breaks to Unwind

“Wisdom is knowing when to have rest, when to have activity, and how much of each to have.”

– Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

To renew and rejuvenate ourselves, it is necessary to take breaks to avoid the burnout. Incorporate the self-care breaks in your daily routine to heal your mind and body.

Taking short breaks at work for typically 15 to 30 minutes like going out for a walk will increase your productivity as it provides an opportunity for psychological detachment.

It’s okay to stop and rest when you need one. If you get tired, instead of quitting or abandoning your dream project or work my advice to you would be to take a break as it can lead to breakthroughs in your work.

6. Spend Time with Inspiring People

Believe In Your Dreams

“Surround yourself with only people who are going to lift you higher.”

– Oprah Winfrey

To get the best out of you, spend more time with the people who bring out the best in you, not the anxiety or stress in you.

“Spending time with negative people can be the fastest way to ruin a good mood. Their pessimistic outlooks and gloomy attitude can decrease our motivation and change the way we feel. But allowing a negative person to dictate your emotions gives them too much power in your life. Make a conscious effort to choose your attitude.”

– Amy Morin

Spending time with negative people is the fastest way to ruin your mood with their pessimistic attitude. You have to identify them faster and avoid their company as soon as possible. They will find ways to stop you from pursuing your dreams.

7. Say No to Disruptions and Focus


“Only through focus can you do world-class things, no matter how capable you are.”

– Bill Gates

'28' percent of your time goes to dealing with unnecessary interruptions. Bill Gates and Steve Jobs are big proponents of saying no to disruptions and focusing on one thing at a time.

“These three things leads to positive non-linear results: clarity, focus, and time. Simple but not easy.”

– Shane Parrish

Warren Buffet considers his ability to focus as one of the main reasons for his success in the highly volatile stock market.

8. Spend Time with Your Loved Ones

Happy Family

“Your family and your love must be cultivated like a garden. Time, effort, and imagination must be summoned constantly to keep any relationship flourishing and growing.”

– Jim Rohn

Spending time with your loved ones who care about you is one of the great blessings life can offer. Spending time with your kids and significant other gives you an energy boost and make your mind feel pleasant as it contributes towards making memories.

Elon Musk watches movies, hangs out with his friends and plays first-person shooters with his children’s.

“If you want to change the world, go home and love your family.”

– Mother Teresa

If you have a bad day at work, go home and spend some quality time with your family, forget your worries and frustrations.

9. Reflect on Your Day


“The journey into self-love and self-acceptance must begin with self-examination… until you take the journey of self-reflection, it is almost impossible to grow or learn in life.”

– Iyanla Vanzant

Reflection enables individuals to think to think more deeply and holistically about an issue, leading to learning and greater insights.

It makes the decision making process more effective and rational which improves the performance.

To lead a happy and successful life self-reflection is a critical step. Elon Musk constantly solicits feedbacks and does self-analysis.

10. Embrace Failure

Never Give Up

“Failure is so important. We speak about success all the time. It is the ability to resist failure or use failure that often leads to greater success. I’ve met people who don’t want to try for fear of failing.”

– J.K. Rowling

Those who dare to fail greatly can achieve great successes in life. Steve Jobs and Elon Musk dared to fail in their dream projects, embraced their failures successfully to make Macintosh personal computers and Tesla Electric cars which others only dreamt off.

Michael Jordan missed 9000 shots, almost lost 300 games, missed the winning shot 26 times in his basketball career, but embraced his failure by reflecting on his mistakes and succeeded in becoming one of the NBA’s greatest basketball players of all time.

“The people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do.”

– Steve Jobs

Embrace Failure

11. Get Enough Sleep

Enough Sleep

“Your future depends on your dreams, so go to sleep.”

– Mesut Barazany

The University of Manchester study found that people who slept longer with positive thoughts reported more satisfying sleep quality. Sleep is one of the best meditations to improve your mood and focus.

In order to be at your peak performance, you need at least 7 to 8 hours of sleep. Follow a routine to help relax and wind down before sleep, such as reading a book, listening to music, or taking a bath.

“It is a common experience that a problem difficult at night is resolved in the morning after the committee of sleep has worked on it.”

– John Steinbeck

12. Take Vacations

Take Vacations

“Travel brings power and love back into your life.”

– Rumi

Take vacations, go as many places as you can, you can always make money, you can’t awakes make memories.

Vacation helps you to relieve stress and boredom, it provides you positive energy and adventure and helps you in bringing your loved ones close to you.

“Neglecting vacation is neglecting success because every success needs an accumulated positive energy!”

– Mehmet Murat ildan
