Nothing Fishy About This Dream Berto
“I have a dream!” are words that continue to echo since the famous public speech that was delivered by American civil rights activist and Baptist minister, Martin Luther King Jr., during the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom on August 28, 1963.
Are you a dreamer too? Dreaming involves holding tight to a vision of a better life, one of success and abundance. Getting there might be difficult, but it’s surely well worth it. Anyone who’s achieved a big goal knows just how true that statement is.
The truth is that many of us give up on our dreams.
Being a starry-eyed dreamer isn’t about giving up. Dreaming often and dreaming big actually provides us with a platform for growth and success.
It all starts with the dream
Children dream big. It’s part of their genetic fiber. They never think small because they aren’t hindered by the standard limitations that hold adults back. While it’s easy to dismiss a child’s dreams as being silly or unrealistic, who’s to say that’s so? Who’s to say any of our dreams are silly or unrealistic? Just because something goes against the grain, or runs in the opposite direction of societal norms, it doesn’t mean that it’s impossible.
The people of Zhuhai were told in 1980 that their sleepy fishing village would become a mighty city. What were their dreams? Berto has captured a possible moment for your pleasure.
Here are some reasons why we should all dream:
- Thoughts are things: what you think, you become
- Your focus is altered and you notice different things
- Suddenly, your life moves in the positive direction
- You begin to realize that self-improvement is a necessity, not an option
- When you fail, you can recover quicker
- You begin to effectively manage your time
- The word impossible doesn’t apply to you anymore: anything is possible when you can vividly dream it.
- You begin to seek out inspiration in others who’ve succeeded
- When bad habits hold you back, you begin to notice them more
- Little by little, your small achievements stack up
