The secret to this is in keeping with your expression and desires. Do not short change yourself. The beauty of your mind is that you can achieve whatever you conceive. I think this was first said by one of the positive thinkers who wrote books back in the 1930’s and 1940’s, which demonstrates that this truth has never changed.
The simple fact is that you can be whatever you make up your mind to be. All it takes is perseverance, fortitude and knowledge. There is a saying I use, “The more you know, the more you grow.”
When it comes to your big dream, go back to the four P’s(Plan, Prepare, Project and Provide) and use them to accomplish that dream. Figure out how you can manifest it and achieve it. More importantly, seek to understand all the things that would interfere with that accomplishment.
What is the point of dreaming big if you do not plan for it, prepare for it, provide for it and project ahead to see what would stop you from manifesting it? Everyone dreams. Work at it and work towards it. Never give up hope. This goes back to the other saying of “Believe in yourself with all your tenacity.”
Everything in life is a matter of perseverance, commitment and conviction. Even a little giant dream would be being the best at whatever it is that you are. Whether you are a stable hand, a salesperson, a buyer, a retail store owner, be the best because big does not necessarily mean large in terms of money or space or size. It is a concept, and like all concepts you need to use your own definition.
You could be the biggest person on your block or your city or your community by creating an environment that people want to come to. It is your dream and you can make it shine and glow and others can participate and be so inspired by what it is that you are doing and the way you are doing it that they want to be a part of it. Therein lies part of the success of dreaming big.
