848) Do you Dare to Dream?!


This week I wanna share with you a video that can help you in understanding why many people -including you perhaps- are reacting the way they do, and sticking to their comfort zone.


.

Now after watching it, you should be doing the following:
.
1. Establish how your time is spent:
Look back through your diary or log-sheet to work out how you spend your time. If you have not done so, log your activities for a period of a month to see where your time is going. 

2. Determine your problem areas:

What is making you use your life inefficiently? Externally, and Internally.

3. Be clear on your objectives and priorities:

Agree your precise role, objectives and targets in your work and life so that everyone knows what is expected of you, and put this in writing.

4. Tackle the enemy within you:

By Planning your strategies, Prioritizing your actions, Delegating stuff that aren't that important anymore, Reviewing and evaluating yourself, and always allocating enough time to explore and play.

So do you dare to go to the Magic Zone?

What a coincidence! I have written an essay in Arabic with the same title!
http://herufmansoura.blogspot.com/2012/11/blog-post_12.html

I liked the video and the advices.
But is it really just a coincidence?

Although it is a 7 min video but it summarizes all the theories. I watched it yesterday for one hour and share it on my wall it really deserves watching. I do believe that what prevents us from achieving our dreams is FEAR. To move from the comfort zone to the magic zone we should take risk “Anyone whose goal is 'something higher' must expect someday to suffer VERTIGO. What is vertigo? Fear of falling? No, Vertigo is something other than fear of falling. It is the voice of the emptiness below us which tempts and lures us; it is the desire to fall, against which, terrified, we defend ourselves.” Milan Kundera. Not only fear but also procrastination; there must be “ an expiration date “for our dreams otherwise we will remain in dreaming phase. Fear and procrastination because we are not passionate about our dream if we have passion and commitment such dream will come true.

Mohaly said...

Samar: Thank you, you really should check the video..

Mohaly said...

NAMES and Lubna:

Seems that this is beyond being a coincidence!

Mohaly said...

Yasmine:

Thank you for the valuable comment. It is scary how many people live and die without even trying once to go our of their comfort zone.

Maryam said...

Lubna, welcome back dear. I have missed you here. Nothing to thank me for. Glad to see you back safe and sound :-)

Maryam said...

Sometimes ya Doctor leaving the comfort zone is necessary to survive a blast of fate. so instead of clinging to what we have to feel safe and secure, oen just drops everything and starts allover again to overcome the pain. int his case it is a life-saving step, i guess.

for me I have established a comfort zone in a part of my exisntence, that i am reluctant to leave. maybe i am too lazy to try out something new here. maybe too scary, maybe i don't dare to risk sailing in new waters, i don't know.
other than such a zone, I love to check out new areas. it makes me feel alive and human, somehow. i dare to leave my comfort zone when it comes to business, taking over completely new role or even launching my own small business. here i have no restrictions whatsoever. I am very excited and enthusiastic to explore new waters and test my capabilities to adopt to new challenges and overcome new "stones". actually its a pleasure to develop, explore, learn and move on.
the video is really good. I wish everyone in Egypt would watch, digest and follow.
sad, how people relay on what they have in hand and think no need to go anywhere anymore. unfortunately many around me think this way. i simply find it suffocating to the human nature. but i can understand where they come from anyway :-)

Maryam said...

Yasmin, I fully agree with you. i think the difficult phase is when fear resists the passion to realize our dreams, that's when we are stuck with all what you mentioned. fear in this case is the voice of the reason vs the voice of the hope to try one more time.

shady chahine said...

Thanks dr mohamed for this great article. This video is really what I wanted now to push me up and try things I always thought it wasn't right for me. Good things don't come to you..you have to go get it yourself.

Mohaly said...

Yes Shady, you gotta do what is right for you.. Dont let anyone stand in your way even YOURSELF.

Yasmin Aly said...

"fear in this case is the voice of the reason vs the voice of the hope to try one more time." I liked it awiiiiiiii ya Maryam :)

valuable comment for valuable post ya Dr.Mohamed.
Thanks

Maryam said...

Don't we all go through this phase ya Yasmin. This is the most scary and drawing back phase.

Mohaly said...

indeed ya Yasmin

Sohad said...


We were born talented, resourcful, complete & with no fears. Then, like black magic others can tell spells about what we can/can't do, this is when we start to know fear & limiting believes during childhood, and it's territory expand to include many types like fear from rejection, fear of being different, fear of not being good enough and also fear from success, all types of fear & limits = fear from simply being. While there is NO FAILURE, only feedback on the right path for you to take, if you took the wrong one just celebrate with a louuuud TAAAADDDDAAAA that you made a mistake, gained a life experience which will take you closer to your objective.

"Courage is not the absence of fear but the willingness to walk through your fear in pursuit of a goal that is important to you"

For that sake and because I was talking to myself before anyone else will share the blog link before finalizing the design.

Have a great MAGICAL day everyone :))

Mohaly said...

well said ya Sohad .. well said.

Sohad said...

White Magic ( love, acceptance, and positive energy ) have a strong power to reverse black magic spells.

Maryam said...

"celebrate with a louuuud TAAAADDDDAAAA"
:-)
i usually celebrate a mistake with a black chocolate and my favourite movie. does it sound good enough for you ya Sohad :-)
cherish a lesson is very brave, dear. and it is a way to pamper yourself after a blast, i admit. however sometimes i wish i wouldn't have gone through this test to gain the lesson.

where is the link ;-)

Maryam said...

Sahar, i just checked your essay. it is beautiful to drea, my dear :-)

Sohad said...

Ya Mariam as long as it's good enough for you love :)) life lessons are cherished for what they reveal about ourselves.
Tests, and turmoils are only stimulus to reveal the true authentic self , without it we won't be who we are today.
Humans are like pearls, some are kept inside their shells and need a test or a situation to let them shine and explore the world.

Sohad said...

Apparently there is a strong cosmic energy promoting, courage & dreams.
I was running this morning to catch up a corporate kick off meeting & Omar el samra was the guest speaker..it was an amazing speech in pursuit of his dream he passed through a lot el 7a2ee2a.
wee ba3deen he said if you are different than others emta e it, this mean you are on the right track...:)))

It was like yes yes yes we are all aliens and proud..;))

Maryam said...

Good to know there are many ya Sohad. How come we meet very few then. What was his dream? I mean omar el samra?

Sohad said...

To climb Everest mountain :)

Maryam said...

Sounds fun. I like that. I just checked him out. Good for him having realized his dream. I wonder what his next would be :-).
Now i understand why he is alien.

Mohaly said...

he is a fellow AUCian.. his next dream is climbing all the 7 roofs of the world, I guess he is almost there.

He established a company for adventures as well.

Sohad said...

)) he successfully climbed 6 of the 7 roofs and planning to do the last in June .. I knew about him from TEDEX Egypt a year ago..you got to see the video

Maryam said...

Sohad does he look alien to you? :-)i am happy for him. It must feel great to be so close to your dream. I will check out his video, and if i am correct i would see glowing eyes out of enthusiasm :-)

Mohaly said...

The comfort zone is the great enemy to creativity; moving beyond it necessitates intuition, which in turn configures new perspectives and conquers fears.

Mohaly said...

some people dont have a comfort zone :)

lubna said...

Sohad I loved all ur comments dear especially z part about limiting beliefs :) Recently I'm meeting more ppl like us so Maryam if u feel like u r z onely one in ur circle, just explore n expand ur circles :) love u girls n will write morE soon :)

Sohad said...

I love the creative positive vibe :))

Maryam said...

Good morning everybody,
Lubna, I started looking for alliens instead of good freinds :-)

Sohad, me too. it is one of the good things here that Dr. MOhamed doesn't mind the side jumps from the post's subject, which makes it sound like a comformatble friends' round to me.

Maryam said...

comfort zone ya Doctor is often needed to just regain your balance and start the fight again. and sometimes it is the start to give up on something and start in a totally new direction.

Mohaly said...

I see the Alien thing is in the core of what we are discussing here ...

Aliens is our comfort zone :)

Maryam said...

being one is not easy at all. however, as long as it is our fate, why not enjoying it and making the best out of it. otherwise, the consequences would be disasters.
you know, it is a kind of living with a chronic disease and enjoying the rest of what you have aside from it.
soemtimes it is funny to watch people's reactions towards an alien, you know :-)

Sohad said...

True ya Maryam and it's fun to watch other's reactions:)))
However, it's not a chronic disease my dear it's living consciously & we are on track ;))) others don't know what they are missing!

Maryam said...

Ah yani, if you only hear what family says about my life :-)
i don't know if they lose anything, they seem to be ok with their lives. i am ok with mine too, if they just leave me alone. sometimes it is like a disease, dear that you have to cope with, as there is no cure. not that i regret. a dream that i worked to realize was keeping my "alien" nature. i couldn't go otherwise.

Sohad said...

Thee Family symptom, tell me about it. It's always challenging especially for women. Can assure you after many years they kind of lose hope & say rabena yeshfeeha wee te32all :)))

Maryam said...

interesting. how long do i have to wait for this miracle to happen then :-)
that's ok wallahi, i don't mind. nothing a chocolate and Halim can't heal :-)

Maryam said...

seems that Alien is our comfort zone, like Dr. Mohamed mentioned earlier.
i still dare to dream :-)

Mohaly said...

It is a Syndrome ... EAS; Egyptian Aliens Syndrome.

Remember what I told u on Sunday .. we are looked at as mental faggots in this society. Khalas I am facing it every day now..

Sohad said...

Who cares about the society ;)) If we anchored the society perception we will always feel lonely & crazy..I would rather to anchor a different feeling of living conscious , fulfilling life, and work hard to reflect the light back to society, family ba2a dee hopeless case, as they always know better..wana 2as3'ar wa7da so I don't have a chance..

Mohaly said...

even if u were the eldest (like me) and a male .. same case, same hell.

Maryam said...

Cheer up guys. At least we have something to joke about.
Imagine how dull our lives would have been, if we were "normal". The way i live now with all risks and threats is far better than weird lives some around me have.

Sohad said...

Hmm we need to grow more empathy ba2a oriental protective families are smothering out of love, and el society
Living an unconscious life.. We bee to manage our expectations and do what's convenient.
Ya Maryam ( me, I & myself ) cheering up 3al 2a7'er ahoo.

I would gladely join you in Dahab, bas guarantee me to play with dolphins

lubna said...

Good morning dears....alien and proud :)
Truly amazed ya Sohad by ur story. I had issues with fear in general as a concept n I hv tried fire walking especially for that purpose. Recently I'm meetin people who tend to face their issues, inner issues which is far harder than any external issue n it is so inspiring to share n learn from each other. Each one would like to think about his or her issue or case as different. It is as if our issues somehow defines us in a unique way while if we looked closely we have so much in common than we can confess n acknowledge. It takes true strength to talk to one's self with honesty n have the will to change. Havin said all this, such personalities exist yet not in great numbers lol
Love u aliens :) have a good day :)

Sohad said...

Ya Maryam common dream, marsa Allam ba2a:)
Lubna, very true .

" I saw grief drinking a Cup of sorrow and called out, 'it tastes sweet, does it not? ' you have caught me, grief answered, and you have ruined my business. How can I sell sorrow when you know it's a blessing?." Rumi

Mesh la2ya kalam a7la men dah to share..
Have an amazing Aliens day :))

Anonymous said...


Lubna did you try fire walk with Mohamed Tarek :) i liked it awii
Yes ya Maryam we all go through FEAR phase it is the most crucial one.
Sohad the adventurous spirit, i feel so happy to see other enjoy their life to the maximum. Life is too short why people wait for something to happen to be happy why we don’t create this happy moment. God bless you dear take care of ur self
It’s time for break finally after such stressful days I really recommend reading these posts “Vacation series 450,451,452,453 ……….PVS “
Thanks
Yasmin

Maryam said...

Sohad, yes would love to go there. Heard it is beautiful.
Fire walking ya lubna, why choose such damgerous actions. Tayeb, u know whay, i always wished to drive a plane and jump out with a parachute.this sense of wanting to be free is attacking me since long. Lets see where i can learn this :-)
Yasmin, our problem is not that we dont enjoy our lives, it is others' attacks that mostly hurt, while they have nothing to do with it.

sohad said...

Yeah..still hard and challenging to mingle with the insensitive majority! As if we speak a different language or actually we do.. It's really very hard to operate in the world sa3at..I wish I can live on an Aliens island..
