Before reading any further take a pen and paper and jot down the 3 materialistic things that you still don’t own but which you would love to posses. It would help if you were as clear as possible about the details (e.g. Color, shape, form, brand etc) of those possessions you desire to own desperately.
Hopefully you have taken the suggestion above seriously and taken the effort to jot down the above. This is a precondition to getting the maximum benefit of the contents of this post. In case you haven’t yet jotted down, please take a moment to reflect and write down. Assuming that you have written down what you desperate wished to posses, here is one more opportunity for you to let your imagination run wild and replace that with something more exotic or expensive or rare. I am imploring you to dream big and do not let your fears or apprehensions stop you from giving wings to your imagination.
Look around and examine the lives of those who you know personally, who have in your view, achieved success that you never imagined they would. While a bit of fate and luck could surely have played a decisive part in their achievements, a dispassionate evaluation would reveal that they dreamt big, worked hard and never let their fears overpower their dreams. What have you to lose by dreaming big? In fact if you dare to dream big you will lose only your fear of poor self esteem and lack of self belief.
The tragedy of many who dream big is that they don’t actively pursue their dreams. Most end up day dreaming whilst the others make feeble efforts and give up when the going gets tough. One way to get going and be motivated is to share the broad outline of your dream and plan of action with close friends and well wishers. Having articulated it, you are immediately obliged to ensure you stick to your plans and proclamations. Your friends and well wishers would also follow up, pressurize you, offer support and encourage you when your spirits droop.
Ideally the big dreams must be broken up into achievable and coordinated sub activities. This requires deep reflection, pragmatic thinking and sustained commitment. Never lose sight of your dreams in the hurly burly of daily life. In fact it would be a good idea to also have a dream chart that could contain possible visuals of what you are aiming for and put this up at a prominent place in your home that ensure you see it every day. It would also help to allot a fixed time to review the progress of your dreams. While there is no shame in giving up on a dream that is just not achievable, watch out for the tendency to give in too soon or change dreams too often.
Now take a good look at the dreams that you have listed out before you began reading this post. Work out your plan of action. Also outline 10 people with whom you will share a broad outline of your dream and inform at least 3 of them immediately. Before the weekend all the 10 must get to know a fair bit about your dreams.
- Make it a point to try and vividly recall and jot down your next dream that you see whilst asleep. Try and find positive implications/ meanings/ message/ interpretation of that dream.
- Apart from the above 3 dreams, list out one or two more dreams for any of the following
- Financial goals related Dream
- A social objective related dream
- An environment friendly dream
- A dream related to education or sports
