Everyone, at some point of his or her life, has dreamed of being someone special, someone who makes a positive impact and difference to others; someone who contribute in a big way. When was the last time you set aside time to dream?
Is there an excitement in your life, anticipation and an aspiration? Or are we so caught up in the humdrum of living from day-to-day that we are barely existing and surviving?
But you know what? Life could be so much more, if only we aim higher, look further.
By this time, there would be loud chatters in your head telling you to exit this post or page and that all these self improvement stuff is just too hard, too impossible and takes too much out of you.
But hey, if everyone thought that, there would be no inventions, no innovations, and no breakthroughs in all of human history. But yet we had so many accomplishments!
Mankind has gone on outer space explorations. We want to explore and conquer the outer space. Perhaps it is time we start with our own inner space exploration and journey.
What would you like to go/do?
What would you like to be?
What would you like to experience?
If you can have everything you need, if you cannot fail, if you have a message to tell the world, what would that be?
Scientists were baffled when they took a look at the humble bumblebee. Theoretically, they said, it was impossible for the bumblebee to fly.
Fortunately for the bumble bee, no one has told it so. So it flies happily and defy all scientific reasons.
On the other hand, we hear of the story of a big elephant, tied to a tiny pole that would not move to free himself. Why? Because the elephant has been consistently conditioned to think that he is not strong enough to free himself from the tiny little rope keeping him to the pole.
When you get down to dreaming today, dream big. Keep a healthily positive mindset.
And then let no one tell you anything negative. When we start believing in ourselves, others will back off with their negativity. They will learn to quiet down their empty and loud chatter. And if helps if we only surround ourselves with people who are positive and empowering.
So set aside time to dream today.
Do this exercise. Take a piece of paper and write down your dreams.
List down all the things you have accomplished.
List down all your strengths, natural talents and skills.
Write down all that you can do.
Write down what you will do in the next month, 3 months, 6 months to achieve your dreams.
On another piece of paper, write down all your fears, concerns and worries.
Then think about how much of these are assumptions.
How much of this is “truth”.
Talk to others about the way you see your challenges.
Have you put in unchecked assumptions?
Have you made your journey more difficult that it needs to be?
Keep it simple.
Then write down what you can do to make what seems impossible possible.
That is all for today! We will talk about acting on these dreams later. Day dreaming will not get us anywhere.
Unattended dreams can become tattered and torn. Cherish and nurture your dreams by taking massive action. Renew your dreams, live your dream everyday by working towards it. That keeps me excited.
