Why do we need to DREAM BIG? What is the big deal with dreaming big? Why do people keep telling you you need to dream big? Do you have a clue? I have heard so many people say that they don’t want to have a dream, because then they aren’t disappointed. No dreams, no hopes, no desires? How can a person live that way? I guess it is one type of existence, a rather boring one, but I guess it is safe.
Why you should dream big
The good thing about dreaming big is that it allows you to fall short and yet still make a great deal of progress. Confucius once said “If you shoot for the stars and hit the moon, it’s OK. But you’ve got to shoot for something. A lot of people don’t even shoot.”
Dreaming big pushes you to heights you might not have ever reached otherwise. Imagine someone who pushes themselves to be an Olympic Gold medal athlete or head of a giant corporation. Such lofty goals will most certainly require a lot of work and achievement. Not everyone will make it, but imagine what good will come out of it.
As someone pursues their goals, they will push themselves to places they normally wouldn’t have dared even attempt . Someone who dreams of becoming a Gold Medal winner might reach as high as Silver or Bronze medal, but they also get to travel the world, meet new people, and master an art. As Confucius would say, these people didn’t reach the stars, but they still hit the moon. And that is still a great achievement in and of itself.
Dream: It is the blueprint of life
A person who does not dream, does not create a life of splendor, for the dreams are what create the life. Without the dreams, the life is rather dull and boring. Yes, you aren’t disappointed…or are you? Isn’t everyday a disappointment when you are doing the same thing over and over and there is no spark, no pizzazz, no Oooomph!
Dreams are the creation tool for our life. How else to say it? Have you read The Secret? While not everything is included in the book, it is a good start on how to create the life you want and it starts with believing and dreaming. If you look out over your life and you are not happy with it, then you need to start dreaming. If you are depressed or just plain unhappy then you need to dream. What have you got to lose? You have what you have and the only place to go is up!!!! Dream Big!
