The Big Dream Effect
By Glennel Hardy
We have been granted the opportunity to dream, and not just the average dream, but to dream big. If our dreams are too small, it’s boring and it does not bring us to the new levels that we have the potential to become. Dreams are not made to be realized within a day, month or not even a year. An effective dream is one that takes years to come about, and extraordinary energy is placed in it to make it become a reality.
Several years ago I did have a dream of going to graduate school, finding a career that I loved, and working on a project that would take me out of my comfort zone. The truth is even though I have accomplished most of these things, the construction of building upon my dream continues. Our dreams should become a road-map of the person we wish to become. When we stop dreaming we become satisfied, and when we become satisfied, the joy of life diminishes.
There is so much more to be done, we should challenge ourselves to live in the midst of our dreams, and continue to build upon it. Our dreams are unique, and the cool part is, our dreams is made just for us, and no one else.
How big is your dream?
