I attended a mother’s day tea hosted by Platinum Steward bank this past weekend. One of the speakers asked us to write down what we used to dream of becoming when we were between 16 to 21 years of age. It was very interesting to note how others dreamt of being doctors and are indeed doctors, others wanted to be air hostesses but later became bankers. The theme of the event was “When I grow up”. I really enjoyed the two hours because it gave me a moment to stop and reflect about my audacious dream and whether I am still believing in it. I smiled and told myself that I am still growing!
If I gave you a chance to dream one more time now, what would you dream of for yourself in five years or ten years from now?
How many times have you stopped yourself from daring or challenging your mind to stretch or dream big. You probably limit your own imagination incase when someone asks you to share it will be in the normal or averange range. Something that is “reasonable”. You are afraid of what people will think or say if you tell them your dream.
The truth is that it does not hurt to dream. Don’t fear planning big or dreaming wild. Imagine living your dream… am sure the benefits are fulfilling. So if you have a “crazy” business idea you once believed in, why not dream again? Dreams are a way of your subconscious showing you your own potential. Get out of your comfort zone and do things you think you don’t have the courage to do. Pursuing your dream gives you a natural drive, purpose and zeal for life.
Remember…If you can dream it, you can achieve it.
To your success
