Scared to dream big?

Not just dream big, we sometimes are even scared to dream! Wondered why? What really are dreams?

Our hopes of a beautiful future.. Our ambitions of doing something big… Our wish to be in a wonderful place very different from the place we are in now..

What must be the reason, why any person fears to dream? Dreams are hopes!! Dreams are like the wind, beneath the wings, that allow us to fly…Why would any person stop dreaming?

May be people think that dreams can only exist in imagination, they never really become true.. May be people think, why would such beautiful things they’ve dreamed of, happen to them.. what have they done to deserve such wonderful things

Im sure everyone of us has come across either or both of these 2  thoughts in various situations. Haven’t we? I know some of my reader friends are going to disagree saying  ..No… Who says we dont dream big.. We always dream big…infact we continue to dream big…

Ok!! Lets take the example of say Mr. X who stays in a joint family set up. He has a  family of 15 people, and he always dreams big. Inspite of having a pay packet of Indian rupees – 3 lacs per annum,he has been dreaming big since the last 8 years that he will take all 15 members of his family to a Europe trip. His pay package has almost been constant since the last 3 years, and knowing his lack of financial planning, I’l say that he has lots of guts to dream such big dreams.

There are people like him, who continue to dream big for years and years together…

Now friends, lets just look at Mr. X!! Is he really dreaming big? Not really… Why? Lets analyse..

Mr. X has  internally come to this judgement that a Europe trip is something he can never afford for his family. He has internally decided that its something that is JUST NOT MEANT for him. And so, though he thinks, that he is dreaming big, he is not really doing so..

Infact, he is doing something that is more harmful, than not dreaming at all.. Deep down he keeps saying this to himself, that its been 8 years since he has had this dream and the dream is as far from reality as it was 8 years ago.  So, in this internal talk, that he has with himself, unknowingly he is sowing a belief, that its impossible for him to make a dream come true.

He is slowly nurturing within him, an underlying belief that ” this dream can never come true”.

If he really thought that his dream can come true, he would have thought of ways to generate an income that is required to fulfill this dream. He would have started with saving money for this trip or would have thought of increasing his income somehow. He has done neither of it, which just shows that he has stopped believing in himself.

How many of us do this with ourself? If there was a machine, which could record our internal talk (the talk that goes on in our head, the talk that we do with ourselves) , we would have an evidence of how cheaply we treat ourselves.

We think, we just dont have it in us. We think we are not meant for the good things in life. We only think, that its impossible for us to be in a good looking situation, where we have all that we need..

We are very much responsible for the lack of abundance in our lives.

Who told all the famous and rich people in this world that they have the capacity to get rich? No one!! They just trusted themselves… They knew they had it in them!

Who has told us, that we dont have it in us, to achieve our dreams, to make it big, to get rich, to have a beautiful wife, a mindblowing house, a car, a career, …………..and whatever else we want to have in our life???

NO ONE!!! Its just our self!!

So now please think about this!!

Are we scared to dream big?? If YESSS comes the answer, then what is it that you fear thats stopping you?

Just coming to this awareness, that we are responsible for what is happening in our life, is a big achievement!! And those of us who know this, will be able to take steps to change all those things that are not working  in our life.

Stopping for now, but about dreaming big, theres more to come…So keep following 🙂
