Why is it that our dreams seem so small today? Our ancestors often traveled hundreds of miles through perilous conditions to make their dreams come true. Dreams like building property for future generations. What about Henry Ford? His dream revolutionized our world. So did the dreams of Thomas Edison.
What has happened to us that our dreams are of having the latest model of new car or building a huge house? I’m not saying there is anything wrong with those dreams. I’m saying why aren’t we dreaming bigger? Why aren’t we trying to revolutionize the world or our way of life?
When did we start thinking so small?
I call these big crazy dreams. Dreams that can change your life and the lives of others.
I have a couple of these dreams. Dreams that could change people in the area I live in and in the world. Dreams I am working on a little at a time. I’m expecting these dreams to take me 10 to 20 years to complete. But you know what? Given that time frame I can complete them. I can complete them if I start working on them now. If I start working on them a little each day. If I just start.
And you know what? It really doesn’t matter if I even reach the fruition of those dreams. Do you know why? Because every little thing we do to make this world a better place makes us better people. Just working towards my big crazy dreams will make me a better person. Will make me happy. Will benefit many people along the way.
Stop dreaming small. Start dreaming big. Start with the smallest micro mini part of your big crazy dream and get started. What do you have to lose? Even if you never reach your dream I’m sure you will have changed lives and been happy in the process.
Go for it. The only thing stopping you is you.
