“If your dreams don’t scare you, they are not big enough.” This quote by Ellen Johnson Sirleaf says it all. She just nailed the whole idea about dreaming big, don’t you agree? You should! Your dreams need to be crazy, wild, and beyond belief. So that everybody around you would try to persuade you that they are unrealistic to achieve, that your efforts will fall flat and you’re going to fail tremendously. This is a sure sign you’re on the right path.
What is your greatest dream? Which goal do you consider impossible? Why do you think it’s impossible? Because it’s what others told you? Or because it’s you who does not believe you can do that? Maybe all three?
To achieve impossible goals, you must dream big. We often set ourselves up for failure and instead of striving to achieve greater goals, aim for easy-to-achieveable ones. Anything is possible when we aim for the stars, dream big and set our sights on greatness.
This is also an issue of perspective. Consider this: Everything that has happened in your life began as an impossible dream. Once we only dreamed of going to the moon, and now we’ve sent people there. We dreamed of putting a man on Mars, and now we’re planning to do just that.
Make a choice
You know the saying, “life is what you make it”? Well, that’s true. But it’s not just because you choose your own path in life. It’s also because of the choices you make along the way. What is the secret to some people being luckier than others. Because it’s not chance that determines our destiny, but rather the choices we make. No matter how small or large, any decision could make or break our lives.
Some people might argue that fate is predetermined, and we can’t change our destiny no matter what we do. However, I believe that our fates are decided by our choices. Each choice brings us closer to our ultimate goal.
So don’t be discouraged if things don’t go your way at first. You can always make a shift and choose another path. Your big dream can only be realized if you make a solid decision and are determined.
How can you achieve impossible goals and dream big?
These are 5 ways you can change your outlook and accomplish the impossible.
1. Shun negativity
When dreaming big, this is the first thing you should do. You can’t let other people’s lack of faith in your dreams and in their own bring you down. Focus on your goals to make it happen. You can replace negative thoughts with positive ones by reminding your self of happy times or good friends.
2. Find what makes your heart happy
Keep your positive attitude up by being happy. When you are filled with positivity, it is easy to imagine big things. A positive mindset is a key to success.
3. The invisible is visible
Have you heard about Eric Edmeades’ notion of the invisible? What are the most impossible phenomena on planet Earth? Of course, you don’t. Since you haven’t seen them and not heard of them. But this doesn’t mean they don’t exist; we just don’t know they do. When we find out about these amazing things, they are immediately considered extraordinary.We can’t do it!. Only then, with the right persistence and step-by-step guidance, can we make them real.
4. Faith is a virtue
Only if only we could all see how powerful our inner power is! It would be amazing if you were able to see how incredible it really is. It would be amazing if you could get rid of the self doubt that keeps you down. Only if you had faith. You can open all the doors that are impossible or even invisible if you believe. Please don’t confuse hope with faith; that will lead to nothing and it will be futile. Faith is, however, the most powerful feeling that leads to success. It’s the key precondition to dream big. The butterfly doesn’t see its beautiful wings; it doesn’t know the beauty it contains. In the same way, we often don’t see our own greatness, our omnipotent power.
5. Get involved
Take action, last but not least! It’s as simple as it sounds. This is what you need to make your dream come true. That’s it! If you don’t take action, your dreams will not come true. Don’t be afraid to face your fears and get moving! You can ignore all negative comments about your dreams. You should instead talk with people who have succeeded in achieving their dreams. Talk to them about details and their emotions, along with the ups as well. Dreamers from other countries and success stories can inspire you.
Do not lose sight of your passion while you strive to achieve greatness. You must have a passion for success. Don’t be afraid of taking small steps. Be steady and small. Visualize your dream. Talk about your dream loudly. Let it be heard. To yourself, the Universe, the walls. You can cultivate confidence, self-belief and resilience by taking the right steps. Accept failures and persevere. These are important for success because they can make you stronger.
Be bold and dream big! Believe me when I say that you’ll one day be so proud of who you are.
I am wrapping up leaving here for your inspiration a powerful quote by the first Indian-born astronaut Kalpana Chawla: “The path from dreams to success does exist. May you have the vision to find it, the courage to get on to it, and the perseverance to follow it.”
