Jordan English Gross has been in the news quite a bit lately in preparation for launching his new site Dorthy.com.  The website is geared toward helping people achieve their dreams.  It works like a social networking site and a search engine.  

If your dream is to climb Mount Everest than you would link up with others whose dream is also to climb mountains.  Any news that comes out related to your dream will also be sent to you.  This way you can stay current on the information surrounding your dream.

I think this site is a great idea.  As kids transform into adults they often leave behind all of their dreams and aspirations.  We are taught that we need to be more realistic and settle for something “more achievable” rather than pursue our dreams.

There is a cycle to dreaming, as a child our dreams are endless.  Sometimes we have well meaning parents or teachers tell us that only a handful of people get to go into space, or a public servant (police officer or firefighter) have a dangerous job and don’t make much money, or teachers often need two jobs to pay the bills.  They are trying to protect us from failure, disappointment, or heartbreak.  What they are really doing is teaching children that it is a waste of time to pursue their dreams, because very few people achieve them.

Why do few people achieve their dreams?  It is because few people actually pursue their dreams.  If we put our energy and focus on our dream, we will come closer to it and eventually achieve it.  A few of the keys to achieving a dream are:

  1. Write it down – if it isn’t written, it is just a suggestion and not a dream.
  2. Believe in it – You must believe you can achieve your dream or you won’t achieve it.
  3. Focus on it – Dreams are like plants and need to be nurtured in order to grow. Read your dream often and visualize yourself achieving your dream in vivid detail. Commit to it!
  4. Accountability – Tell somebody about your dream, but make sure they will support you and not criticize your dream.
From what I have read about Dorthy.com, it holds you to the above steps. You declare your dream, you are sent news items to help you focus on your dream and to keep it in your mind. You can connect with others that are also interested in your dream or similar dreams.  You can share stories and update your progress as a way to stay accountable for your dream.
