Dreams come true? This phrase may sound trivial, but many of them – even the craziest ones – can turn into reality if only a few important points are met. If you feel that you have a head full of ideas, but for some reason you are not very good at implementing them, you can use the following list of seven short rules created by a German motivational speaker, Pierre Franckh.
Dreams. Do they really come true?
Franckh at some point in his life noticed that he managed to fulfill most of his life dreams, especially those concerning professional career. In conversations with friends, he began to analyze what made his decision-making process different from that of the majority of society. He realized that he unconsciously always followed certain rules, which he decided to write down and turn into seven simple steps list about which we can read more in his book The Seven Rules for Making Dreams Come True.

Dreams. Seven simple steps by P. Franckh
Step 1: You need to start
Taking the first step is usually the hardest. That’s why it’s important to finally do it. No process will begin without even the smallest steps in this direction, even if only symbolic. Of course, if you don’t start, you will also avoid possible failure, but even more effectively you will deprive yourself of … a chance for success.
Step 2: Formulate your desires accordingly
It is worth writing down your dreams on a piece of paper, doing it in the most specific way possible. Instead of “I would like to travel”, try to think carefully about how far you want to travel, how many countries you would like to visit in a year, what means of transport are involved, how much money you can spend on it. For example, “I would like to visit three European countries in the next 6 months using cheap flights.” This is just an example, of course, but you’ll be surprised at how much concretization of your plans can do.
Step 3: Train Gratitude…
Try to “charge yourself” with positive energy! Franckh also recommends writing down a few dreams you’ve already achieved or things you’re grateful for. Evoking such strong emotions, you will motivate yourself and it will be easier for you to believe in your own agency.
Step 4 and 5: …and trust
Dreams will come true only if you trust yourself and the world at least minimally that something good can really happen to you. This is not about “false positivity” (on the contrary, a pinch of realism is necessary), but focusing on failures and being afraid of everyone and everything has never gotten anyone very far. Also remember that there is a right time for everything.
Step 6: Be open to possibilities
Dreams can come true thanks to the most surprising scenarios. That’s why it’s worth opening up to new possibilities: even if you would immediately classify them as “weird”, “crazy” or “not for you”. After all, insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results, right? Try to follow your intuition.
Step 7: Precision
With step two, have you already figured out what you’d most like to pursue? Now it’s best to narrow down the list of goals and try to think about them practically every day, ideally imagining the positive effects of achieving them. Good luck!
