dream“The most pathetic person in the world is a person who has their sight but no vision.”  – Helen Keller. In life, we all want one thing and that is to succeed. With all its complexity, twists and turns, finding ways to actually achieve your goals may be a bit overwhelming. The actual first step in becoming successful is not that hard; all you have to do is know exactly where you want to go. Of course this path is not an easy one, but it is simple. Just like when you are on a vacation and are on the road, trying to find your way there-life also needs a map. This map will be your tool, a window for you to visualize goals and dreams. It can also lead you to your ideals in life, whether it has to do with your relationship, desired weight, or profession. Once again, if you want to reach your goals and succeed in life, you have to take the first step of knowing your planned destination. Remember that you will not reach this ‘place’ or reach destiny without having a sense of direction in life. In all of this comes dreaming. You may have never thought about it in this light, but try to ask yourself about what you really want to do, where you want to go, what are your priorities, and how do you want your life to be? When you dream, anything and everything is possible, so start off by doing this. Some individuals are already using this technique, but they forget an important thing. You have to imagine yourself as if you are already at the finish line and you’ve already reached your goal. Don’t stop there, go on and use your emotions to hear what’s around you, see how everything is, and how your success has affected all aspects of your life. It is said that the more details used when visualizing, the more an individual will be able to feel the ‘reality’ subconsciously. Keep in mind that you are your master and no one else has the capability to create your life-map but yourself.


It was Les Brown who said that the problem with most people is not that they aim high and miss. It is that they aim low and hit… Focus on ideas that are of utmost important to you. If you try to succeed without a goal or plan, nothing will come from your efforts. As mentioned, dreaming is the first step and so, you have to remember that limits do not exist. If you allow limitations to come into your life, you won’t get very far and those goals of yours will seem unreachable. Of course it is normal to feel self-doubt, but don’t let it consume your or your thoughts. Use your plan and vision, so that you will continue walking towards success. This first step to success works with all other venues in life. Whether it’s getting that dream vacation of yours or landing your desired position at work. Have that vision, mentally focus on your destination, and imagine the outcome as if it were real. Once you do this, you’ll see how your plans start unfolding before you and success becomes one step closer. Start dreaming today!   Image: Danilo Rizzuti
