If you live long enough, there have been times in your life when people try to discourage you from dreaming. Furthermore, when you presented ”big ideas” to some, they simply laughed and asked if there’s something wrong with you. Often, when you share your big dreams with people they think you’re crazy. After your big dreams finally come true, they think you’re lucky. A dream is nothing more than an inspired thought. If you can see it and dream it, you can have it. That’s why it’s important to dream big.
Thoughts become things
A dream is nothing more than an inspired thought. The key to understanding how dreams work is to first understand that inspired thoughts or dreams happen in our subconscious mind. Our subconscious minds are not able to differentiate between reality and thought. In our subconscious mind there are no limits. The dreams that we consider big are really small in comparison to the unlimited resources of the universe. If you can hold an inspired thought in your mind, you can hold it in the reality of now.
Dreams change your perception of reality
If you’re able to focus on the things you want instead of giving energy to the things you don’t want, you’re able to attract into your life more of what you want. If you are focusing on the negative aspects of life, more of that will come rushing into your life. On the other hand, if you’re focusing on the inspired thoughts (your big dreams) and the things that you want, those things will begin to manifest in your life. Your dreams alter your perception of reality. When your dreams are big, it shifts your perception of reality to the big things that you dream about.
Dreams move you in your desired direction
As you dream, you begin to think on the level of your dreams. If you’re dreaming big, you begin moving in the direction of your dreams. Your dreams are like a drum cadence. Every time you dream about the things you want and the positive things you desire, that becomes the predominant cadence in your life. That’s the cadence you begin to move with. If you’ve ever noticed a marching band, it doesn’t begin its movement until the cadence begins. Whichever way the cadence leads it is the direction in which the entire band goes. Your dreams are no different. Allow the cadence of your big dreams to move you in your desired direction.
Your big dreams can lead to failure
This is the part of dreaming big that is the most unpopular and least favored. No one wants to consider failure as an option. Often, in life failure is usually not an option. Sometimes we misinterpret failures as our sign to give up. What appears to be failure is often meant to be a lesson taught and learned. Throughout the course of our journey to success, we’re going to be met with opportunities that appear to be failure. In actuality, the appearance of failure is a blessing in disguise. What this means is failures can be taken and turned into positive lessons that continue to propel us forward in the direction of our big dreams. Don’t the failures trick you into giving up on your dreams.
Your dreams create your purpose
Your dreams are a way to inspire and motivate you. It is a way that helps you determine what your purpose in life is. Once you know what your life’s purpose is, your dreams become much more significant and meaningful in your life. They are not just arbitrary thoughts. They become more inspired and more deliberate. Once you know your life’s purpose and come to the resolve that your dreams are there to serve you, something as small as a setback will not be able to throw you off track. Instead it will fuel your desire to fulfill your intended purpose.
Your dreams motivate you to think in terms of limitless possibilities
Our conscious thoughts are limited to the confines of our mind. When we begin to think at the level of our subconscious mind, there are no limits. This means that your dreams can be as big as you wish them to be. When you dream, you look at things from a different perspective. As you continue to dream, challenges and failures will become opportunities and successes. This is because your dreams inspire you to look at the world differently. What was once impossible, becomes possible when you follow your dreams.
It is so important to dream big because in doing so you’re able to set a new pace for your life. You’re able to look at life from a totally different perspective and what was once impossible now becomes possible when you dream big.
