Unveiling the Amazing Power of Putting Your Dreams on Paper

Dreams have such power to pull us forward - and they have been the driving force behind millions of significant achievements in human history.

But, in the hustle and bustle of everyday life, we often overlook the importance of dreaming and of giving our dreams the attention they deserve by the simple act of writing them down on paper.

Yet research unsurprisingly shows that people who write their dreams on paper are significantly more likely to achieve them than those who don’t.

When you write your dreams on paper you acknowledge their importance. They become real. A physical manifestation on paper which we then subconsciously start taking actions to pursue.

Recent Findings:

In a recent Quiz we asked people if they've written their dreams on paper. The results were fascinating…

  • Only 22% of nearly 1,000 people surveyed, said Yes.
  • Nearly half said No …and around 30% say they have some dreams written on paper.

Insights and Analysis:

  1. The Power of Intention:

The 22% of respondents who have written down their dreams on paper demonstrate a conscious effort to clarify their goals and aspirations.
By taking the time to pen down their dreams, they are making a deliberate commitment to their aspirations, paving the way for increased focus and motivation.
  1. The Middle Ground:

The 30% who answered "Some" suggests that they might have started the process of writing down their dreams but haven't fully committed to it.
This group may have recognized the value of putting their dreams on paper, but for various reasons, they haven't fully embraced the practice yet. Encouragement and guidance can help them bridge the gap between intention and action.
  1. The Overlooked Majority:

The 48% who answered "No" reveals a significant portion of people who have yet to realize the potential of writing down their dreams.
Perhaps they have never considered it or may underestimate the impact it can have on their lives. This group represents a great opportunity for growth and self-discovery.

The Power of Putting Dreams on Paper:

Writing down our dreams is a transformative act that goes beyond mere wishful thinking.

Here are a few reasons why it holds such power:

  1. Clarity and Focus:

When we write down our dreams, we bring them out of the abstract realm of thoughts and into the concrete world of words. This act helps us clarify our aspirations, enabling us to set clear goals and develop a roadmap to achieve them.
  1. Increased Motivation:

By putting our dreams on paper, we create a tangible reminder of what we want to accomplish. This visual representation can serve as a powerful motivator, keeping us focused, inspired, and determined even during challenging times.

  1. Accountability and Action:

Writing down our dreams holds us accountable to ourselves. It transforms our dreams into commitments, urging us to take concrete steps towards their realization. It encourages proactive action, turning aspirations into achievements.


Discovering and pursuing your dream life begins with acknowledging the power of your dreams and giving them the attention they deserve.

The act of writing down your dreams on paper is a transformative practice that helps you clarify your goals, boosts motivation, and helps hold you accountable to our aspirations.
