Have you been told your dreams are too big?
I remember when I told my family I wanted to be a president when I was young. They patted me on the head and said, “That’s nice but you’ll need something to fall back on in case that doesn’t pan out.” Then they gave me some suggestions, which I won’t bother to repeat.
When I told MR N my dream of becoming a published author, his first response surprised me.
“Then let’s make it happen.”
No trying to talk me out of it, no patting on the head, no rolling of the eyes. Encouragement and support.
Listen, I’m a firm believer in having big dreams. The bigger, the better. Why so big? The greater the dream, the sweeter the victory of making my dream come true. It doesn’t matter to me anymore what people think of my dreams. It’s not their dream, it’s mine!
There’ll be small minds who’ll try to talk you out of your dreams. Don’t let them! They have a narrow perception and can’t see the future like you can.
What are some of your grand dreams?
Pack a bag and go after your dreams. Ignore the naysayers and if you can muster, pity them. I pity the fools who have small dreams, for they never know what it’s like to fly high and live amongst the clouds.
