Reflections of the Week

Dream Big and Focus Small

2010-01-15 16:35 (comments: 0)

How successful were you in the last year? Did you have many positive intentions? How many of those did you actually act upon? Did you reach, miss or even exceed your goals? How did you start into the new year? Do you have positive intentions, clear plans or perhaps fears and reservations?

 

Today, I offer you a tagline that will, in every case, lead to success, no matter how well or poorly you feel at the moment:

 

"Dream big and focus small"

 

Often we don't even dare to dream big because we are scared of failure, being laughed about, don't think we have the skills, etc. We hold ourselves to "small, secure dreams" and by that never reach our full potential. Deep in our soul, however, the unease or the sadness grows that we have never really tried to test what we are really capable of... if we had just tried...

 

So, ask yourself today: "what would I want from deep within my heart if everything was possible and I could not fail?" - dream big, without any "if or but". Now focus small! Each day find a small step through which you can get closer to achieving your dream. Read the appropriate material in order to become, step by step, an expert. Look for contact to the right people. Surround yourself primarily with people that support you in reaching your dream; people that don't hinder you, or rob your strength to keep going with their behaviour. Observe people that are successful because success leaves behind clues!

 

Each day get up and take one step, even a very small one, towards fulfilling your dream and look back enthusiastically in a year, a year in which you came much closer to fulfilling your dream, or one in which you have already fulfilled your dream. Dream big and stay at it, and get closer each day with small steps!

 

Quotes 

 

Energy is the essence of life. Every day you decide how you're going to use it by knowing what you want and what it takes to reach that goal, and by maintaining focus.

 

Oprah Winfrey

 

If you want to be truly successful invest in yourself to get the knowledge you need to find your unique factor. When you find it and focus on it and persevere your success will blossom.

 

Sidney Madwed

 

It is difficult to say what is impossible, for the dream of yesterday is the hope of today and the reality of tomorrow.

 

Robert H. Goddard
