There are many qualities in a successful person. But, there is one common denominator among all successful people. One thing common among them is dream.
If you take some time to ponder why you are what you are today. Why are you living in a house you are living today? Why do you drive the car you drive today? The answer to these questions lies in dreams. It was your dream which had brought you where you are today. The car you are driving is because somewhere deep inside you might have dreamed about it in the past. The house you are living you must have dreamed about it.
You might think, No, I have not dreamed about the small house, the small car, the job you are doing have never dreamed. You may deny it. But the fact is you must believe in yourself and your dreams.
Your dream comes true if you believe it. There are people who dream big. Dream big is absolutely necessary to be successful and prosperous. But your dreams must be backed by your belief. For example there are people who ride two wheeler and they do not own any four wheeler, if they dream that their first car would be a luxurious car, could it be possible to get a brand new luxurious car. The answer is ‘yes, of course, if only they believe it.’ If your mind accepts it, you can have anything you want. You can achieve any big goals you want. There are no un-realistic goals. Only thing is it must be believable.
Dream big, believe in your goals. Take action every day, which will take you closer to your goal. Do simple things which is important to achieve your goals and one day you will find that you have achieved what you wanted to achieve.
Let me give you my own example I am forty two years old, few months ago I was not able to run continuously even for half kilometer. I started with few hundred meters. Now, I can run 5 kilometers at a stretch. Now, I dream to run 42 kilometers i.e. full marathon. Full marathon is a race where you are supposed to run/walk 42 kilometers. many of my friends said it is not possible. but i know deep inside that i can do it. Now, this is my dream, it’s a big dream for me. But I am confident and I do believe that by the end of this year 2018, I shall be able to finish my first marathon.
My second dream is to write good blogs so that people can get benefited by my blogs. That also I am doing. Because I do believe that poor writing is better than perfect writing which is not written at all.
I will go to the extent of saying that perfection is a curse. Excellence is the thing we all must strive for.
I will end this blog by a quote by Aristotle “We are what we repeatedly do, excellence then is not an act, but a habit.”
And we are sum total of our habits. Change your habit; you can change your life. The best time to start a good habit is now, right now.

We all have dreams, some have big and some have small, but all have dreams. Our destiny is determined by what we do with our dreams, whether we go after it to make it true or we don’t follow it blaming the outer circumstances. We Claim that our situations are different from others. We make a hell lot of excuses why we can’t make an effort to live our dreams. There may be many reasons for not living our dreams, and one of the chief reasons is feeling embarrassed for not achieving what we set out and declare to achieve. What people will say if I fail? In our childhood days, we are trained to feel embarrassed about our failure. We heard sentences umpteen times by the time we are grown, ‘all your friends will laugh if you fail.’ ‘Don’t you feel shame on your failure?’ Over a period of time we start believing that failure is embarrassing. And it is natural to feel embarrassed about failures. It becomes so deeply embedded in our subconscious that we fail to realize that with this thought we…
This is the biggest impediment in self-development and growth. God has made every individual well-packed with unique ingredients that are needed to live a dream life and made an impact on this world.But, why it does not happen in real life, in the practical life, in the day to day life? The root cause lies in our belief system. It is our belief system that is posing the biggest hindrance in accomplishing the goals we set for ourselves and living our dream life.In the name of practicality and pragmatic approach we forgo many wonderful opportunities that life gives us. Okay, now it is a well-known fact how our belief system develops? It is developed by the association we are in and the books we read. Yes, there is a great impact from the books, motivational videos, association.But the greatest of all these factors are; what we say to ourselves day in and day out. What we think about ourselves. What we believe what we are capable of doing?Give time to know and be aware of yourself, take …
In the process of achievement, we tend to overlook some of the basic questions. When we make a list of goals-desires/dreams with deadlines-we must keep in mind the order. What do we want to be? What do we want to do? What do we want to have? In one of my classes a student expressed her desire, ‘I want to be a bestselling writer?’ Now, she wants to achieve a goal that tags her as a bestseller writer. The number one the thing she will have to do is to think and feel that she has all the ingredients in her that are required to be a best seller. The process of achievement starts with the thought process. All the changes happen inside first then only outside change will take place. Number two: learn about the bestseller writer, what is their daily routine, what they do daily? How do they develop the habit of writing? Stick to the routine until you achieve your goal. It sounds simple. Isn’t it? Of course, it is simple. You might ask this question, ‘if it is so simple why do most people fail to achi…
