The biggest dreamers have always caught our attention, we have often asked ourselves – What makes them dream so much? and the answer was “The more you dream, more is the possibility to achieve.” This is a fantastic thought, makes us ask another question – Are dreams the only thing needed to achieve goals. Are they so powerful to makes one’s life? Well perhaps not, it does take a lot along with the dream, but there is something in the beauty of the dream as well.
When I was a kid I dreamt a lot about scoring good in my tests. I wasn’t the most keen student, I was a little lazy, found it very hard to study but something that kept things alive was the dream of being there in the winners circle, not that it made me get there at ease but the idea of being there gave a great surge of energy which made me work harder, push further. I didn’t know whether it was sufficient enough to get me there but the bigger picture was always beautiful and the drive was a whole lot fun than it looked like. It felt less like hard work and more like something which I had fun with cos I had the larger thought to keep me pushing.
It kinda reminds me of what my brother used to say “No matter what kind of student you are, aim for 100%, Bigger the dream more the desire, more the desire more the outcome”. I know I am speaking out of the whole context here, but somehow that made sense, it made me believe that it was possible. Not that it led me to getting the best rank, but it did lead me somewhere.
Something I did realize was that these dreams acted like the driving source for the goals. They ignited the spark and the power to illuminate the fading energy, they helped develop faith, they shaped the path and paved the way to achieve goals. They showed the beautiful picture of tomorrow that we all desire. Then it gave rise to a strand of thought – don’t put a limitation on the dream, cos sometimes that is all you got!
