Dream Big has become similar to a salutation. A simple “Hello” or “Goodbye” is almost the same gesture, but saying “Dream Big” forces you to dream a bit. The dream may takeoff some great brainstorming or it could be self-ridiculed. Dreaming big is an act that too many fail to do, and even fewer see it to reality.
The reality of having big dreams can get crushed when the sight of the current obstacles stand in front of you. Obstacles and sacrifices are rarely ever discussed. All the great success stories like Michael Jordan, Rosa Parks, Steve Jobs, Oprah Winfrey, Michael Jackson, Joe Montana, Anne Frank, John F Kennedy, and many others are inspiring and heart-warming. However, they all and countless others worked tirelessly into the night (and many overnighters) to become who they were. Not one of them belittled their dream, nor should you.
Don’t little your dream big. Your dream is the key to your happiness. We were all designed to fulfill a unique void in this world. Without your personality, intellect, and know-how, the world will suffer the travesty of not witnessing your contribution.
Your contribution could be specialized in arts, medical, science, technology, sports or humanities. Don’t little any industry or your craft, because you could be the missing piece to making it popular, hip, smart, savvy, and vintage or whatever you think is derogatory. You could be the Michael Jordan to basketball, Oprah to television, or Jobs or Gates in computers. Whatever you do, don’t little your dream big because of the current obstacles. Seek help, overcome and celebrate the small victories.
I write this because my business is personal. My struggles are for your gain. No strings attached.
