Uncover Hidden Dream Meanings

Dreaming of a quota symbolizes a conflict you have with control.

A quota is a measurable number of something, e.g. people, places, or words. Usually, a quota will specify the amount required, but this can also be a guideline, or a minimum/maximum.

Dreaming of a quota suggests that you have become misguided, and are throwing yourself off balance because you feel out of control. The way to fix this is to understand why.

In this dream, you may have been

  • Organizing a quota.
  • Looking at a sheet of paper with a quota on it.
  • Being told a quota.
  • Looking at the completed quota.
  • Forgetting a quota.

Positive changes are afoot if

  • You understand how the quota reflects your conflict.
  • You actively make changes to grow as a person.
  • You allow yourself to let others take control sometimes.

A quota in real life signifies structure and planning. Often people will dream of being delivered a quota when they have an upcoming project to complete and are concerned it will not be up to standards. If you have been granted a big responsibility such as fronting a task force, this dream may represent your fears of the team around you making you look bad. Your brain may now be frantically trying to organize every part of your life, including your dreams. Be careful not to let this control spill into other parts of your life, or your behavior may affect the people around you.

If you have been handed the quota on a piece of paper, this can mean your issues with control have already begun to overrun into your private life. Paper can also signify secrecy, which entails you to have misfortune in the future. Secrets lead to the build up of emotions in the brain, and if they build up too much and become too heavy, they could cause deep psychological problems.

If you have been delivered a quota face-to-face, who was this delivered by? It may give you an opening to understanding where your conflict lies. If you were delivered this by your girlfriend/boyfriend, perhaps you feel too controlling over them. Your brain may have picked up on issues in your subconscious, which your conscious mind is yet to become aware of. The best way forward from here is to speak to your partner and ask if there is anything troubling them, this may save you a lot of aggravation in the future.

If you have been delivered a quota, but have lost the piece of paper, or forgotten the quantity, this means you feel completely out of control. Forgetting the quota can imply that you are not doing a good enough job, and are having serious doubts about yourself. As soon as you start to doubt yourself, your mind will get flooded with negative thoughts. The best course of action is to drive forwards and remain confident, so others will see you as a competent leader. Having a big responsibility is a great honor, and you have been appointed this responsibility because you are deserving of it, remember that before you begin to doubt yourself.

People who work in administrative jobs, or in a managerial position, or in a bank are more likely to dream of this as it is engrained into their profession. If you do work in an environment where you are constantly using numbers and calculating figures, your brain might just be reflecting your day's events into your dream world, meaning these problems do not need to cause as much concern for you.
