Chicago Vision Shares The Vast Difference Between Vision & Dreams

Dreams and visions are two very different concepts. Dreams are what happen when you wish you go somewhere. Many people may say phrases such as “My dream is to travel” it doesn’t necessarily make it valid because dreams often carry no validation unless you make moves. A vision, however, is what we place importance on because it is exactly how we see the future for ourselves. When visions are taken seriously, it means that an individual wants to go somewhere. The difference, for example, is wishing vs. wanting. At Chicago VIsion, we consider ourselves visionaries. We are a group of individuals that believe in acting on the visions we see for ourselves. Rather than wishing for something to happen, we basically envision and make it happen,” says Matthew Goodchild, managing director of Chicago Vision.

A vision to us is something that more intentional and has an enduring quality. A quality that when it is taken seriously, individuals with strive are the ones that truly understand how to make it out there in the hustle and bustle. “Most individuals will assume and think that dreams and visions are the same things. This is incorrect. When we sleep, we have dreams — but it doesn’t necessarily make them true. But when we vision, our visions show a glimpse in the future for ourselves. It’s a more assertive factor, whereas dreams are passive. To us, dreaming isn’t something that we want. It’s nice to dream and wish for things. However, we want to be able to grab the stars not just imagine to achieve them.

When you envision yourself to reaching the highest, your drive, work ethic, hard work will help you achieve that stance. To complete your vision, you must take the first step by being courageous and actually pushing forward towards your goals. “Tie your goals in with your vision and putting it together will help you focus in on what you want to achieve. Chicago Vision truly believes that individuals who say and do are more likely to grasp their goals than the ones that imagine and waste time. Rather than just dreaming about doing something, envision it and do it. Waste no time trying to grab the stars you see for yourself,” says Matthew Goodchild of Chicago Vision.

An unstoppable attitude means that you’re aware of yourself and your confidence. No matter what you do, whichever field it is you know that you must maintain a strong mindset and positive attitude to continue being unstoppable. Many times individuals will wonder and ask themselves, “Will I be able to do something?” “Will I be given a chance?” When the question should actually be, “Who is going to stop me from reaching my goal?” This type of mindset means you are ready to take on any challenge that comes your way to reach your dreams. “Due to the given fact that anything can happen, we always maintain a challenged mindset and understand that obstacles are a given. However, having the mentality of an unstoppable individual, we know that it helps to overcome anything thrown in front of us,” says Matthew Goodchild, managing director of Chicago Vision.

Our agents and business partners at Chicago Vision know that it’s not always about what’s happening to you. It’s about how do you handle situations that you need to face.

Focus on your goal and push through,” says Matthew Goodchild of Chicago Vision. These are some of our favorite quotes to inspire you and also help you maintain a strong mindset.

Chicago Vision Shares 3 Strategies To Persevere/Stay Ahead

Chicago Vision Shares 3 Strategies To Persevere/Stay Ahead

Tom Hopkins said, ” I am not judged by the number of times I fail, but by the number of times I succeed: and the number of times I succeed is in direct proportion to the number of times I fail and keep trying.” For Chicago Vision, our main goal is to be persistent and always reach the furthest when staying on top. No one gets successful overnight and leaders aren’t at the top if they’re always behind. “Ultimate success and victory comes from staying consistent and being persistent throughout the entire journey,” says CEO of Chicago Vision. We firmly believe in a few strategies that have proven effective for us time and time again. We instill these into our mindset and would advise that other individuals can understand this as well.

Stay Realistic

Human beings are not programmed to be robots. We understand that pressure is a significant factor and reaching the top can be quite stressful. “This still doesn’t mean you burn yourself out and sleep one hour every night to reach what you want. Make sure you are healthy in achieving what you want just as much as you are working,” says CEO Mattew Goodchild of Chicago Vision.

Mistakes are Bound to Happen

“Mistakes help us learn from what we did wrong. The ideas and tasks that are not working, we modify them into seeing how they can be better,” says Matthew Goodchild of Chicago Vision. Are you learning from your mistakes? Are you trying to fix what you previously did wrong? These are questions you should ask yourself when you make mistakes and adjust them.

Put Responsibilities First

Focus on the fundamental aspects first and do not worry about the results. When you put your entire focus as a priority on the tasks that matter as the most important, everything else will follow along. Many times individuals try to juggle everything at once, the primary factor in reaching or staying at the top happens by putting essential aspects on the top.

Chicago Vision Shares Getting Into Self-Discipline Mode

Self-discipline is one of the most critical habits of a successful individual. The key is consistency if you want to produce results. “Hard work and effort are two things that go hand-in-hand. Without these two, self-discipline doesn’t occur naturally. Creating a bond between these two characteristics helps you to be someone that carries the concept of self-discipline within themselves,” says Matthew Goodchild, managing director of Chicago Vision. The most excellent leaders and business professionals have one thing in common: self-discipline. It is such a simple statement, but many times it is underrated, as well as taken for granted. There is no way that it will form without building healthy habits with consistency to help it develop naturally.


According to Success Magazine, “14 Ways to Improve Your Self-Discipline” the writer explains how an individual can harness the power of self-discipline through various tips. The article writes, “Sadly, your natural genius and an occasional burst of hard work are not quite enough to guarantee success in this life. Great entrepreneurs all have one additional amazing trait in common: discipline. It takes a lot of consistency and determination to get your great ideas recognized and to convert your hard work into dollars. It is ironic, then, that self-discipline is often a feature that the brightest people among us lack the most. The problem is that there are so many wonderful things to learn about the world; concentrating on any one project can be a big ask.” “Take a look at the best leaders and athletes of our time. They have to build a life around discipline; they eat, sleep and breath it. They work hard, and their success shows because they are mindful about consistency,” says Matthew Goodchild of Chicago Vision.


The two tips this article wrote about is to: Remove temptations and Schedule Breaks. Self-control is the best form of self-discipline. Stopping yourself from excessively eating something terrible, or doing something harmful to yourself. If you have a bad habit working on it will make sure you get self-discipline. Lastly, schedule breaks, treats, and rewards for yourself. “Self-discipline does not mean your new regimen needs to be completely cold turkey, hardcore, or drill sergeant-like in execution. In fact, giving yourself zero wiggle room often results in failures, disappointments, and giving into your old ways. While practicing self-control, schedule specific breaks, treats, and rewards for yourself. Dieting? Designate Saturday as ice cream sundae day.”

Chicago Vision Shares “5 Rules to Win the Game of Life”

According to Success Magazine’s article, “5 Rules to Win the Game Life” the writer Brendon Burchard writes about having a vision for yourself. When an individual envisions their future, there are some questions they should ask themselves. “Some of these questions may seem simple, but for some, it’s very hard to narrow down what the process is to achieve them. One thing you may want to ask yourself is ‘what are your dreams?’ or ‘what do you want from life — where do you see yourself going?’ these are the questions you can ask to help narrow down how you want to go about winning the game of life,” says Matthew Goodchild, managing director of Chicago Vision. We know that it’s very competitive out in the real world and there’s a bit of luck involved to actually make it to the top. However, that does not disregard the amount of work that goes into becoming someone that you are proud of and can look at when you pass 10 years into the future, and look back at yourself.


“The key to winning the game of life comes from focus and hard work. It’s about believing in yourself and having faith that your dreams/goals are worth it. If you don’t think they are worth it, no one else will,” mentions Matthew Goodchild of Chicago Vision. Burchard in relation to this key, writes “When you have that vision, dream, desire, you’re going to have fun on this journey, even when it sucks, even when it’s difficult, even when you’re dealing with someone you don’t like. Whatever you got, whatever you’re dealing with, just say, I’m going to bring the fun. I’m going to bring the joy into this situation proactively. I’m not going to wait for something to happen for me to have fun. Whatever way you enjoy life, whatever way that fun, joy, zest and enthusiasm sparks for you—make that happen.”


Another great rule to live by in life is being patient. “Patience is so underrated. Everyone says it, but no one actually does it. It takes a tremendous amount of patience, backed by action and persistence to push through,” says Matthew Goodchild of Chicago Vision. Burchard says, “To be a learner, you have to have patience with yourself, but the critical element is that you have to be persistent. You’re allowing time to take place as you’re putting these things in, you’re allowing the universe to align with your desires, dreams and focus. You are also not stopping. You are persistent in your actions. It’s that peaceful warrior that you are working toward. You are fighting. You are struggling to move toward it, but at the exact same time, you’re cool.
