This is my awesome four-year-old. He’s still pretty little, so his dreams are changing constantly, but he recently he told me he wanted to be an astronaut, and he also wanted to be a doctor. As adults, we tend to smile knowingly at little kid’s dreams. I wanted to be a famous singer as a kid, and that wouldn’t necessarily be something I aspire to today. Kid’s dreams are often seen as unrealistic, or simplistic. Not every little boy will grow up to be a fire fighter. We can learn from children in a way though. They don’t hold themselves back. They don’t make their dreams smaller to fit their lifestyle or current budget.
The question is, how do you make that big dream a reality? Kids don’t think about that part. Adults do, and that is why we tend to put limits on our dreams, because we don’t know how to achieve them.
Imagine your dream, then change it to a goal. The only difference between a dream and a goal is a detailed plan. Make your plan. Divide it up into years, months, days, and maybe even hours. What do you need to do on a daily basis to reach that goal? What do you need to do now?
The most important part of this goal is to not compare yourself with others. That is a bad path to go down. It will hurt more than it will help. Compare yourself to the person you were yesterday. If you are further on the path to reaching that goal than you were yesterday, you are succeeding.
