All successful people start off with this first step, which is to simply dream, and dream BIG.
Every invention, masterpiece, goal, and inspiration comes from dreaming and wanting to make a difference in their lives or the lives of others. Becoming a successful person is no exception.
So put on your dreaming caps and start dreaming today. Take some time off and find a nice quiet corner to sit at where no one will disturb you. Find a piece of paper (not scrap paper!) and begin writing down all your desires and wants, and I mean ALL. Now, let us call this the ‘Reality List’. This is purely because everything written down on that list is going to become a reality, and not stay as a ‘dream’.
Make sure that you write it down neatly (or as tidy as you can be) as you will be referring back to the ‘Reality List’ often. One major distraction in achieving your goal is to find that you simply do not know what they. It is a turnoff to try and decipher your own messy list and more often than not, people would just give up there and then. Hence, a simple solution to deal with your messy handwriting is to type the Reality List out by using a computer.
So write down what you want to achieve in the next 5 years.
What are your inspirations, things that you want to achieve for not just tomorrow, but in long term. Where do you see yourself standing when that time comes? Driving your new Ferrari car or being surrounded by a loving family living in a pretty cottage by the sea?
As someone once said, ‘If there’s a will, there’s a way’, so do not be afraid to be ambitious!
Do not let your current circumstances limit your dreams.
Circumstances can and will start change, only if you desire so. Thus, do not be mindful if some of things on your list may seem impossible or ridiculous.
Dreams are boundless and remember, so is your determination. If you really want it, it will become a reality.
Be as detailed and creative as possible and generate as many dreams as you can. Do not restrict yourself to just one piece of paper. Human beings are more than capable of accomplishing numerous goals in their lifetime.
So start pouring all your dreams unto that piece of paper!
