RELATIONSHIPS: Dream Killers Part 2
written by Dr Matthew Anderson
What is a dream?
A dream is, your highest hope, biggest challenge, best possible outcome for your work, relationship and/or life.
There are two kinds of dream-killers. The internal killers and the external killers. Both of them are dangerous to your aliveness and your consciousness. This article focuses on internal dream killers, who they are and how to handle them.
We all have internal dream killers and they are versions of their external siblings. They show up whenever we begin to entertain new possibilities or dream bigger dreams and they share characteristics similar to the External Dream Killers. Take a look at the list below:
Beliefs, attitudes and perceptions that support and even create fears that block your path to self-expression and dream building. These thoughts validate fear and persuade you to accept and honor your fears.
A too-small self-image. About 95% of us (you included) grossly underestimate our potential. Then weusethis limited andfixed idea of ourselves to define who, what and how we can be or become. Sadly, most of us seldom question this life defining idea and we construct our work, relationships and dreams within the small box it places us in.

Look to your right…
The trivialization of ourselves and our dreams. These are thoughts and beliefs that convince us that we are not important. Who we are, what we want and what we could become, is essentially trivial and inconsequential.
The lack of an internal cheerleader. We listen so closely to the other internal dream killers. We ignore or even kill, our inner cheerleader. This has tragic results because it deprives us of the energy that we need to follow through with ideas and beginning plans, for our hopes and dreams.
