Dream chasers have had their own challenges and hurdles be it other people or your own inhibitions.
Outside forces come in the form of “dream shamers” who will bring you down and tell you “your dream is too big”, “that’s reaching for the moon”, or “your head is in the stars.”
“Perhaps the biggest challenge was my own insecurities, thinking that I wouldn’t be able to do it like my concert, I know sintunado ako, but I pushed for it anyway because to sing before a huge audience was my dream,” shares Anne Curtis-Smith.
“I worked hard to make it happen. It was not something that I did just for myself, but the Annebisyosa concert was also my way of encouraging people to always fight for their dreams in the face of those that say ‘you can’t do it’s,” Anne recalled.
Anne, who has been doing charity works quietly for many years, decided to put up the Dream Machine after hearing stories of dream shaming. Through the Dream Machine, Anne hopes to connect with dreamers and learn more about their dreams and connect them with dream-makers.
“I have always been a dreamer. In my 20 years in showbiz, I have worked hard to reach for my dreams. I am blessed to have already achieved most of my dreams and it’s now my turn to be a blessing to others through the Dream Machine,” Anne continues.
The Dream Machine will be rolling out the red carpet for three dream weddings of three couples on the first quarter of next year. Couples are invited to share their love stories through the website and the chosen stories will come with their own dream wedding sponsored by Anne and other Dream Makers.
Anne also said that she is more than happy and welcomes those who want to be part of the Dream Team as dream givers as much as she would love to hear stories and dreams.
“At the end of the day, what Dream Machine hopes to achieve is to be able to inspire the dreamers, help them achieve their dreams and, hopefully, be able to start a dream revolution where there’ll be a lot of dream-givers and dream-makers to pay it forward. The world will be a much happier place when that happens,” Anne finished.
Dreamers are encouraged to start sending their dreams via the Dream Machine website http://www.dreammachine.ph. Learn more about the Dream Machine by visiting social media handles fb.com/DreamMachinePH, and @DreamMachinePH on Twitter and Instagram.
