Everyone has dreams they hope come true at some point in their life, so rather than wait, make them happen on January 11 by partaking in Make Your Dreams Come True Day. We can either hope they happen or we can make moves and put plans into motion. Whether you're making a solid plan for your dreams to happen or you're doing something you've always wanted to do for a loved one, use January 11 as your starting point to make positive changes.
Put plans into action
Rather than just talking about your dreams, actually do something to make them happen. For example, if you've always wanted to buy a home but don't have enough in savings, start up an

automatic savings plan where money is automatically deposited from your bank account each week. If you want to save more for retirement, ask your job to take more money out of your check for your 401k. Even if there's a trip you've always wanted to take, do the research about the cost and start putting a certain amount of money aside per week.
Do something on your bucket list
Many of us have a bucket list, which is essentially a long list of the dreams we want to accomplish in our life. Pick one item from your list and just do it – no excuses. If you can't do it on January 11, then at least buy the tickets, make the reservations or whatever else you have to do in order to set it up for an advance date.
Donate to a charitable organization
One of the best ways to celebrate Make Your Dreams Come True Day is to help someone else's dream come true by making a donation to a charitable organization. The Make-A-Wish Foundation of Metro New York is one such organization. They grant wishes to children who are battling life-threatening medical conditions. If you can't donate money, consider donating your time by volunteering.
Do something for a loved one
For many of us, one of our dreams involves doing something for one of our loved ones. If possible, do what you can to make that dream happen. If it's not an option to do on Make Your Dreams Come True Day, then put plans into motion to start making it happen. Sometimes it's an even more incredible feeling to make someone else's dream come true than our own.
We can't make all of our dreams happen at once, but the more we do what we can to make them happen, the more our chances increase that we can accomplish everything we want to in life. Consider January 11 your starting point on making all of your dreams finally come true.
