Having goals and dreams is great, but no one is coming to your door to offer that dream job, ideal life partner, perfect house, trip around the world. If it's a true desire, you have to go after it. You have to plan, you have to engage. You may have to stumble and fall a few times before you find the best approach. In other words, you can't just stand there. You need to do something!
In the example above, if standing and staring at the water isn't enough, how do you cross the sea? You could try swimming (though rather foolhardy), paddling a canoe, sailing, rafting, etc. Clearly, some form of movement is required, otherwise you'll only end up with a sunburn or sand in your shorts.
What secret goal or dream is yours alone? What are you going to do about it? Or, what are you doing already...?
