How to Dream Big?

“We all have dreams. But in order to make dreams come into reality, it takes an awful lot of determination, dedication, self-discipline, and effort.” - Jesse Owens

The starting point for success in life is dreaming big. Is it possible for everyone to dream big? Yes, it is possible. But only a few people dream big and achieve success. Fundamentally, it is the dreams that take all of us towards success. But, then, why do people fail to dream big? Let us look at the same.

Failures and Dreams:

“The successful man will profit from his mistakes and try again in a different way.” - Dale Carnegie

When people fail frequently they tend to develop mental barriers and limitations concluding that they cannot achieve anything in future. In fact, it is wrong. Every failure teaches some lessons. The positive people learn lessons from their failures and move forward. Further momentum is possible only when we restart our life with dreams. Everything is there only in our mind. We can create and conceive the mind the way we want. When our mind is fed with dreams, hopes arise resulting into putting in efforts and striving for success. Therefore, it is necessary to break those mental barriers that limit from dreaming big.

Age and Ability to Dream:

Children dream bigger than middle aged or old people. They live in dreams and fantasies. It is basically because they have not seen the world. They live in imaginary life. But the people in the middle and old age have seen the practical problems of life. If they happen to face frequent problems in life, their confidence level decreases. Besides, age does not support them to sustain their dreams. And in the case of old people the ability to dream decreases further with several challenges having faced and still facing in life. There is an element of insecurity as they think that they reached fag end of their life. That is why it is rightly said, child thinks of future, middle aged person thinks of present and old aged person thinks of past. Therefore, it can be easily concluded the ability to dream decreases with the increase in age. However, people can dream big irrespective of age if they develop a positive mindset and they can achieve success at any age. In a nutshell, age is not an excuse for dreaming big.

Develop A Positive Mindset:

Walt Disney said, "If you can dream it you can do it."

It is necessary to develop a mindset that you can achieve big. When such mindset is created it is very easy to dream. Imagine that you are unique and different from others. You were born to achieve something big in your life. Have firm conviction that God has created you to achieve unique things in the world. When you are flooded with such information in your mind, you get inspired and excited continuously and constantly. It develops will power, perseverance and builds confidence. As a result, you put in efforts and energies regularly which ultimately takes you towards success.

How to Dream Big?

Martin Luther King Jr. famously said, "I have a dream that my four children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character." It is the dream of Martin Luther King that led to equal rights for both whites and blacks in America. It is also rightly said that an idea with a dream can change your life.

Focus on your talents, where in, you are blessed with certain skills and abilities by birth. When you keep looking at your own strengths you tend to dream big. Few people have the habit of looking about themselves especially their weaknesses. Such tendency creates inferiority complex preventing from dreaming big. Learn to respect yourself. You must know the fact that you are unique and none can be like you. This kind of feeling generates positive vibes resulting into dreaming big.

Albert Einstein rightly said, “Imagination is more important than knowledge.” Cultivate the habit of stretching your imaginations to unforeseen levels. Many ordinary people have become extraordinary people as they spread their wings of imagination. Imagination is essential to dreaming big. Higher the imagination, higher the dreams are. Therefore, raise your imagination levels.

“So many of our dreams at first seem impossible, then they seem improbable, and then, when we summon the will, they soon become inevitable.” - Christopher Reeve
Everything is possible in the world. What is needed is the will power to make it happen. Similarly, dreaming big is very much possible by giving right mental diet to your subconscious mind. Below is the process you need to follow towards dreaming big.

Half an hour before you go to bed, provide inputs to your mind that you were born to achieve something great in the world. Have conviction that you have all ingredients to achieve the same. Keep feeding your mind with such mental inputs regularly. When you think and feed your mind with the same daily just before you go to bed, your subconscious mind gets stuffed with the same. Over a period of time, your subconscious mind takes over your conscious mind and your behavior gets reflected accordingly. We do as per the instructions of our mind. When we can explore and exploit our subconscious mind in this way we tend to dream big.


“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.” - Eleanor Roosevelt

Imaginations lead to dreaming big. When we dream big, our mind starts thinking big. Finally, we get excited and inspired to accomplish the impossible activities resulting into greater success. Therefore, dream, dream and dream BIG.
