Every Child has a Fantasmagorical Dream

Every child has a phantasmagorical dream. I prefer to call it the fantasmorgical dream (fantasmorgical is a spellcheck denied word). It is the only dream they will have for keeps. In that dream they see a world that they believe in. This dream is essential to this child, and is unique to every child. Soon, some children try to live that dream, whereas other children give up on that dream. You cannot live a dream, and you cannot give up on the only dream you have. So the former try to live in a fools paradise (optimists), whereas the latter keep on repairing that dream and downgrading it, or giving it up altogether (pessimists)

Your dream is your blueprint of this world, and that workaround is your entrepreneurship.

Very few children, meet someone who tells them to go get the dream. This dream is not to be lived or mummified, but to be achieved. Once, you have a dream, you have to work your way through every hazard and make your world, our world, the way you see it. That dream is your blueprint of this world, and that workaround is your entrepreneurship.

Entrepreneurship is not about making money, it is about dreamsmanship.

Entrepreneurship is not about making money. It is about setting to achieve your unique dream about this world, about making learning look like a path that it is, about letting people in to your dreams and helping them enjoy this world you create. Your employees are not your route to make money, they are your citizens, they are the first inhabitants of your dream world, and even if they don’t see your dream, they share a part of it. You can in fact, rename entrepreneurship as dreamsmanship (again a spellcheck denied word).

People who join in your Fantasmorgial world, to change the real world, are the citizen of a dreamworld.

At some stage in life people realize that their dream, their fantasyland cannot be achieved alone, and they need help, and they must pay for that help. That my friend, is economy. Slowly, they set about improving the world and introducing parts of their dream into the real world. These parts are, my friend, the new products that we see in the market – each a part of someone’s dream. People who join in to make changes in the real world, are the employees, nay, the citizens of a particular dreamworld.

Companies built in this way, follow no template, and people would spend fantastical hours studying why they exist. Those are the companies to live and die for.

Please feel free to share your phantasmagorical dream in the comments below.
