The following article was written as part of a class project in Effective Communication and Persuasive Writing. Read the summary of the project from LRM Lecturer, Miss Elisabeth Arevalo, here.
‘’If you can dream it, you can do it.“ – Walt Disney. Believe people who created magnificent things in life. Everything is possible. If you look around there are examples everywhere. We just have to open our eyes and believe in ourselves. Dream big and never let anyone tell you something different. Above all, you are doing it for yourself.
‘’Action expresses priorities.’’ – kind words said by the wisest man, Gandhi, the President of India who walked with his people barefoot to show he is like everybody else. He proved that what really matters is what one is carrying within. Strong will, morals, faith and love; all are priceless qualities. It is not about where you come from, but where you go from there. You can achieve anything you dream. If your dreams don’t scare you, they are not big enough.
We all have dreams and passions. The only difference between us, are the dreams that happen and the dreams that don’t. Be positive, but bear in mind, that everything happens for a reason. Everything bad is for something good, and remember everything in this world has its time. If something doesn’t happen now, it doesn’t mean it will not happen at all.
If you are still not sure if you have the guts to dream big or not, think of everything you have achieved, how far you have come. Don’t put limits on yourself. Dreaming big can only make you happy. Don’t feel frustrated if something doesn’t happen now, believe that everything that is meant to come to you will come to you – no matter where you are, or what you are doing.
This life is a short journey. Make it worth it. Dream Big, Believe Big, Think Big, Act Big and the results will be big. It is never about keeping your ‘’head in clouds’’ or your ‘’feet on the ground’’, it’s about going after what you want and love. Everything in this world is allowed if it doesn’t harm anyone. ‘’What goes around, comes around.’’ For dreaming big and achieving great things, one has to know what they are willing to give. But usually for everything worth having, one has to sacrifice. Still, keep your thoughts positive and never put yourself down. If you start loving yourself completely, you will be able to love others completely, and this means allowing good vibes to come towards you.
Therefore, never waste a minute thinking about things you don’t like. You can attract them. Unwritten law. Most of all, make fear just a word and never listen to or surround yourself with people who are unhappy or pessimistic. Keep your attitude positive and as high as your dreams. Dreaming Big, can’t harm you. ‘’A ten thousand mile journey, begins with one single step.’’ Do it.
