Many people set out to achieve a big dream, such as starting a business or writing a book, but when they don't succeed right away, the dream fades. Often, these people have plenty of talent and expertise related to their particular dream, but those skills, which authors Paul Levesque and Art McNeil call ""microskills, "" are usually not enough. Dreamcrafting identifies and teaches the five ""macroskills"" -- aspiration, motivation, projection, inclusion, and application -- people need to make any dream a reality.
