There is a saying that whatever we resist will persist…that is the way with the dreams we have that we have not yet pursued, for whatever reason.  Scared.  Not believable.  No one to support us.  Too dangerous.  “Who am I to think I could do that, be that?”  However, I can tell you if you do not listen to that voice inside you, it will begin to drive you a bit crazy.  It needs to be acknowledged at least. Here are some suggestions to move you to your dream realization: 
Marianne Williamson said “who am I to be famous...” and further went on to say, “who are you not to be?”  Let the doubts sit on the bench and you get up and go play.
Morning coffee, tea or smoothie, (start your day off right) take that time to visualize that which is most important to you…just let the dream/vision wander around in your head and give it some time to develop.
Exercise is a fine time to let your “bossy and critical” thoughts go and to welcome the “dream/vision” thoughts. Bicep curls could include an affirmation like: “Of course I can do this, I am on fire and smart”.
Get out a piece of paper and write out the 7-10 ideas that make this dream/vision real for you…all the inventions of the world started with a thought and then a BIG FAT DOUBT. You are so much better than your doubts.
Do an internet search to see who else might be in alignment with your thinking – there are some wild ideas out there…hmm, like who would have bet any money on the virtual reality and the smart phone in 1960?
Give yourself a deadline for creating a simple plan to take you to the next level of turning your dream/visions into reality. Watch out cause stuff happens so fast getting you aligned with your dream/vision.
(I love the Julie Cameron book below “The Artists Way” and have recommended it to thousands of people through my speaking audiences and coaching work  – it is worth the read now.)

“If everything was perfect, you would never learn and you would never grow.” - Beyonce

"Everyone has been made for some particular work, and the desire for that work has been put in every heart!" - Rumi (12th Century Poet)

The Artist’s Way by Julie Cameron, is the seminal book on the subject of creativity and realizing our dreams and purpose. An international bestseller, millions of readers have found it to be an invaluable guide to living a fulfilled life. Still as vital today—or perhaps even more so—than it was when it was first published one decade ago, it is a powerfully provocative and inspiring work. In a new introduction to the book, Julia Cameron reflects upon the impact of The Artist’s Way and describes the work she has done during the last decade and the new insights into the creative process that she has gained. Updated and expanded, this anniversary edition reframes The Artist’s Way for a new century. 

"Without The Artist's Way, there would have been no Eat, Pray, Love.” —Elizabeth Gilbert
