Map of Dreams

There’s a famous quote that says “a person starts dying when they stop dreaming.” As a matter of fact, without dreams, we become nothing. Without dreams, neither will there be a goal to reach, nor ambition to chase. So, it all starts with having a dream or idea of how you would like your future to be. Once you’re sure about your dream, you need to make a plan, and this is where a map of dreams comes in.

Dream Board

What is a Map of Dreams?

Also known as a dream board or vision board, a map of dreams is a visual tool that serves as a guide to one’s ambitions and goals for the future. It’s a visual illustration of one’s dreams and ideal life. Making your own map of dreams can be an opportunity for you to explore your own ambitions and goals and exercise on your creativity.

  • What’s your vision for the legacy you would like to leave for your family, society and the world at large?
  • What house will you like to live in?
  • What car will you like to drive?
  • Where will you like to vacation?

Asking yourself these questions will help you come up with a map of dreams that reflects your ambitions and goals. Visualize them, write them down and affirm them. This will serve as a constant reminder of what you are aiming to achieve.

Step 2: Decide the format of your map of dreams
