“It’s just not realistic.”

“Grow up.”

“Join the real world.”

“Get a grip.”

I defy the voices.

I embrace the dream.

Do you realize that it was once considered impossible to run a 4 minute mile? Then someone did it. Now every decent high school age runner aspires to it, and many succeed.

Did you know that a quadruple amputee swam the English Channel?
I have a friend who is wildly successful in business. He earns more in a day than I earn in a year. Literally. He has helped more than 2,600 people achieve financial independence through becoming entrepreneurs. But dyslexia makes reading nearly impossible for him. It was so difficult, in fact, that he wasn’t able to finish school.

Tell him his dreams are unrealistic. Go on. He’ll just snicker as he boards his private jet.

I have big dreams.

My dreams are bigger than the vast majority of the people I know. They’re ridiculous and completely unrealistic and I will chase them with every bit of my energy until the day I die.

Maybe I’ll only accomplish 10% of what I dream of.

But if my dream is big enough, the 10% will be extraordinary.

I will see the world. I will experience life. I will impact others in a positive way.

How do I know?

Because I have a dream.

“Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.” –Harriet Tubman

Are you, too, seeking to save the earth, promote world peace and raise productive citizens without expending too much effort?

  1. I love the line you wrote: But if my dream is big enough, the 10% will be extraordinary. It’s such an encouraging line and tells others to dream big. Why not? And every step toward a dream coming true counts and is considered an achievement. Reach for the stars — you just may capture one. Hope you make your dreams come true!
