6 Powerful Reasons Why You Should Dream Big

Updated on April 28, 2015

“Man, alone, has the power to transform his thoughts into physical reality; man, alone, can dream and make his dreams come true.”

~Napoleon Hill

dream BIG

In my business opportunities seminar, I often ask the audience this question. Do you dream? Normally almost everyone present would raise their hand. Then I ask few of the participants what they dream about. Just listening to their dream motivates me even more. Their dreams are as high as Everest and deepest as Marianas Trenches. Some dream about vacations, others want to travel the world as a wealthy tourist, others want to retire early, and others want to own fancy card and luxury houses.

How BIG is your dream? and How badly do you want your dream to come true?

So if you dream. Then simply dream BIG. There is no point dreaming when you can’t dream big enough and have enough self-confidence and motivation to succeed in life. Don’t you confuse yourself with the issues of dreaming big and just living in fantasy. In my coaching, I encounter people whose dreams are even high then Everest and deeper than Marianas trenches but fail to pursue their dreams that perfectly places them in the category of “Living in fantasy”.

Being a big dreamer doesn’t mean that you walk around with your head in the clouds. It means that you’re seeking a purpose for your life and it means that you’re becoming fulfilled in the process. People that get into the habit of dreaming big will accomplish those goals because they have the right mindset. You need to look at life with the perspective that you can achieve anything that’s possible. If you can accomplish big dreams, why wouldn’t you go after them? Why would you want to settle for small dreams?

6 powerful reasons why you should dream BIG

Here I have put together for you 6 powerful reasons why you should dream big.

"A dream can be nurtured over years and years and then flourish rapidly. . . . Be patient. It will happen for you. Sooner or later, life will get weary of beating on you and holding the door shut on you, and then it will let you in and throw you a real party!"

Les(ter Louis) Brown

1. Helps you discover your purpose in life

Dreaming big is not just for material things you want to achieve in life. Dreaming big also allows you to connect with the core of you being. Some call it soul or spirit. I call it my inner man. Discovering your true purpose in life starts with dreaming and this is the most satisfying achievement any man or woman can ever achieve in life. So why dream less. Dream BIG for your own sake.

2. It is your choice

Really, you have a choice in this dreaming Big matter. You can choose to dream small or big knowing all too well that dreaming small will take you nowhere in life. The real beauty of the matter is that you have the choice to dream and there is no limitation to how big your dream can be.

You have been living on earth for so many days, weeks months and years until the very moment you are reading this article. Think of a person you know who really wanted to be successful and started his journey to success but failed terribly before he even got there…Why? He wanted to be successful but he didn’t dream big. That’s as simple as that. Do you want to follow that path? I am sure you don’t. Please dream big. Not for me, it’s only for you. You have a choice to dream big, so dream big.

Someone who dreamed big and turns to be my personal hero is billionaire stock market guru Warren Buffet. Here is his life story. A very insightful video. Watch

3. Gives you direction for bigger achievement in life

Big dreamers are big achievers, right? If you dream small, and work hard at it, you achieve the small dream you dream. That is ok. But do you really want to waste your lifetime dreaming small and archiving small and living small? Dream big and take small steps to achieve bigger things in life. Don’t settle on small dreams when you can be achieving bigger things.

4. You’ll Be Open to Possibilities

There is an old adage that goes like. Shoot for the moon and if you miss it, land on the nearest star. Dreaming small offers less space for you to see any possibilities for big changes to boast you to bigger achievements in life. If you shoot for the sky, in between earth and heaven, the space is vast and you are bound to find many possibilities or open doors that will lead you to big personal or professional success in life. You’ll encounter a good amount of excitement as you go about life because you’ll be in adventurous and unpredictable situations.

5. You will achieve greater things in life

When you dream big, you’ll achieve great things. You may even end up achieving more than you ever thought you could. Let me give you a very familiar example. You are faced with a situation. You have attended one of my business opportunity presentations are you mind is blown and you want to start a business. Wait! You have a job that is of course your security. You are caught in the middle. What happens if you live the job that pays you a fixed hourly rate? What happens if you start a business, that is well managed, pays you more than the fixed hourly pay? The job is a safe bet with a likely limited salary. The business is the “big dream” that can provide fulfillment and not just in the salary potential. You’ll be personally fulfilled and you’ll achieve more for your hard work.

6. It’s the Right Thing To Do for the World

Do you believe with me that the only reason why this world changed for better is because of some so called CRAZY ideas? Galileo Galilei (1564 -1642) was one of them thought to have crazy ideas. Galileo was an Italian physicist and astronomer credited with building the first effective telescope. He used this to prove that the earth moves round the sun. This confirmed the theory originally put forward by the Polish astronomer Nicholas Copernicus. But it went directly against the teachings of the Church i.e.; the earth was the center of the Universe and the Sun revolved round the Earth. It was this conflict with the teachings of the Church that was to eventually bring Galileo to the attention of the Inquisition that got him placed under house arrest. The most inspiring thing is that while Galileo was under house arrest, he wrote one of his finest works, Two New Sciences, in which he summarized the work he had done some forty years earlier, on the two sciences now called kinematics and strength of materials.

"There are people who put their dreams in a little box and say, 'Yes, I've got dreams, of course I've got dreams.' Then they put the box away and bring it out once in a while to look in it, and yep, they're still there. These are great dreams, but they never even get out of the box. It takes an uncommon amount of guts to put your dreams on the line, to hold them up and say, 'How good or how bad am I?' That's where courage comes in."

Erma Louise Bombeck

I have a reason to tell you this history. The reason is this; big dreams are the reasons why the world changes for the better. It’s the reason why there have been so many great inventions, and cures for diseases, etc. Big dreams give you the opportunity to truly leave your mark on the world.

List your dreams

You can dream big. That is perfectly ok. But if you work not just hard but smart to realize your big dreams, then there is simply no point in dreaming. On the journey to personal success, the first step is to actually writing down your dream. Not in your computer. I am talking about you using your own fingers to hold the pen and write your dreams down in a white clean sheet of paper. This is the road map to your success. At times, the noisy world will take its toll on you and make you forget about your dreams. At such times, revisit your hand written dreams for motivation to keep holding on and pushing a mile further when all seems blank ahead.

Why should you list down your dreams on paper?

You may be asking, why waste my time list down my dreams when I can keep them in my head. The world is too noisy and your dreams will be easily forgotten if you don’t document them. Here are some reason why you should document your dreams.

It becomes a written contract to yourself which usually sparks a personal motivation to achieve them.

  1. It makes you define clearly what your goals are. Writing them down encourages you to state what you want in greater detail.
  2. It frees your mind of perpetually thinking and “remembering” your goals.
  3. It stimulates creativity and motivates you to think about the next step.
