“Make no little plans; they have no magic to stir men’s blood and probably themselves will not be realized.”
Daniel Burnham, American architect, and urban planner.
We should all Dream Big. Big dreams not only inspire us but attract others. Few dreams are realized through individual effort. Big dreams will help you build a team of like-minded dreamers. We should always begin with a strong WHY and a BIG DREAM. They will be our rod and staff, sustaining us through our journey.
“Most people fail in life not because they aim too high and miss, but because they aim too low and hit.” Les Brown
Most people are afraid to dream big. We all have a choice, we can live our dreams, or we can live our fears. Life has special meaning for those who are pursuing their dreams. Don’t be afraid to dream big. Don’t worry about how. Just do a little each day.
Dream big. Start small. Begin now. Dream beyond what you think is possible but set realistic goals that move you towards your dream. The only thing between you and your dreams is a lot of work. Each day you do even a little towards accomplishing your dream, you are moving the needle.
We can get intimidated by a big dream. We become overwhelmed if we only see the mountain we must climb, instead of just focusing on the next step we need to take. Don’t stair at the mountain, just take the next step. We climb the mountain one step at a time, not in a single bound. Just keep at it, day after day, and you’ll be on your way.
Set daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly and yearly goals. The short-term deadlines they create will kill procrastination and create a sense of urgency. Accomplishing these smaller, more realistic goals, will build your confidence, and sustain your motivation. Small wins trigger our dopamine system and make us more motivated to keep after our dreams.
So, DREAM BIG, but set realistic short-term goals to help you take the thousands of little steps that will allow you to ascend the mountain. Best wishes and best of luck!
