The difference between a dream and a goal is a plan

By ATB Financial 5 November 2018 1 min read

Most of us have probably seen this quote on Instagram or even pinned it to an inspirational board and then kept on scrolling. Well this little gem has some serious truth to it.


When we talk about what we want in life, long term, we tend to talk about it like it’s a dream or a wish. We say things like, “I really want to get fit” or, “I want to retire while I’m still young and travel the world”. These are realistic dreams, but when we speak about them without a real plan, that’s exactly what they are, dreams.

If you want to get fit, you need a plan to make it happen. We all know too well how easy it is to quit without a solid plan for success. The same thing goes for your financial future.

If you plan for your long term dreams, they become attainable goals. You don’t need a life coach, although we wish we had one too, and you don’t need your mama’s help. All you need is the drive to get started, a plan, and the tools that work for you.


Give your plan the financial edge with personalization, a simple ten-minute set up, and a hundred dollars. Because your dreams don’t work unless you do – ATB Prosper
