It is easy to dream big, but how to believe in your dream might be a problem. Your dream is in your heart for a reason; to bring out the best in you. A dream should be respected, honored and nurtured by anyone who wants to see himself successful. This is because great dreams ignite our imagination and captures our heart and spirit. They create the true success in our lives. Although the path to our dream might be long and challenging, we should never allow ourselves to quit dreaming. Dreams are not anything to set aside and keep waiting to fulfill them later. We should believe in them and work until we achieve them. Here are few incites on how to believe in your dream.
Dare to dream
Abdul Kalam once said, “you have to dream if you want your dreams to come true.” Here is my challenge. Are you dreaming or are you just wishing things will get better? Dream that wish and you will start believing in it. Dreams create the path of our achievements. I dare you to write your dreams. Think about what you want most in your life today and start working immediately to attain it.
How to believe in your dream and master your minds
It´s interesting that most of us have dreams but are unable to tune their minds to believe in the dreams. When challenging times comes our way, it is important to focus on our dreams and avoid doubting the path of achievement. To keep believing, you need to manage what you think. In a company, a manager controls every department. He notes the operations and makes sure they are in line with the company’s objective. You being a manager of your mind you need to do exactly the same thing. Destroy the department of confusion and doubt towards your dream. Let every activity that runs in your mind be on fulfilling your dream. This will help you avoid negative thoughts that might stop you from believing and achieving all you want in your life.
Fear is the biggest block to our dreams. Ask anyone who had achieved, at a point in their life they felt that they couldn’t make it. But it’s patience and persistence that made them achieve. Oprah Winfrey a popular motivation speaker once said “whatever you fear has no power, it is the fear you have that carries all the power.” When you critically think about this statement you will realize that fear carries your dream to the grave by making them powerless. There would be no reason to dream if you will kill the dreams by fear. Be willing to take risks to attain your dreams.
Visualize your dream
Here is another powerful way of how to believe in your dream. This is by seeing yourself in your dream. If you want to own a business and become the CEO; it high time you start visualizing yourself as a CEO. Create a habit by calling yourself a CEO. Speak the dream, walk the dream and you will believe it.
Advertise your dreams
Every single person has close confidants that he can share his dream with. It may be that friend who always encourages you to continue pressing on till you make it. Sharing your dream is one way of assuring yourself that you are ready to work hard and attain it. The friend will be asking you how far you are progressing to the dream. This is important! It motivates you because there are expectations from not only you but also your friends.
The biggest reason why we fail on our dreams is because we do not plan on the best ways to attain them. Dreams must be accompanied by a form of a plan. This plan must make sense. Real dreamers are believers and doers of their dreams. A plan will show the progressive steps that will take you to the realization of your dreams. But remember Rome wasn’t built in a day.
As humans, we are gifted differently. Our dreams are unique. They define the purpose we have in this life. Believing in our dream is the most important thing. It helps us uncover our true passions. You are not alone in dreaming; everyone start with a dream and pushes till they attain it. Here are some famous quotes that can motivate you to believe in your dreams.
John Wooden- “If you give up on your dreams, your dream will give up on you.”
Mary Kay- “To follow a dream is exhausting, but the rewards of attaining the dream are worth sacrificing”
Johann H Ragnarsson- Willingness, courage, patience and practice are the ingredients of attaining a dream. BELIEVING IN THE DREAM is the road to take you there.
