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.

The other day while interacting with one of the young officers of a corporate world an interesting incident happened. It is not uncommon that I meet many people in the job who show a keen interest in entrepreneurship. They want to become an entrepreneur but for the one or the other reason, they don’t venture into business. So, this young fellow told me that he had many good ideas for business. Then I could remember that I met some of the brightest men or women who were doing very well in their job and they wanted to start their own ventures. Most of them told me that they had many good ideas. Probably, this is the problem. People having many ideas landed in not working in any of the idea. As Napolean Hill writes in his book think and grow rich that ‘one sound idea is all one needs to achieve success.’ I always emphasis getting success is simple. This I could learn and realize after I underwent many failures in life, though these failures helped to become successful. What one needs is…
A person once asked me, ‘why it is so that even after having clarity in my dream and after much effort I am not realizing my dream?’ What I explained to him, am sharing with you. Having clarity in the dream is the beginning of the achievement process. But you need to give your 100% to make your dream true. I, myself, have made an effort for many years for my dreams but in vain. However, the result started pouring in once I gave my 100% to the cause. Remember, when it comes to realizing your dreams it requires wholehearted effort. There should not be any ambiguity in it. There should not be any doubt. Your belief level should be 100% that you will get the result you are striving for. And your belief level will be intact if it is backed by wholehearted effort. I always say that success is realizing your dreams is based on a simple act. What makes success difficult? You will agree with me or when you will work on your dream you will realize that simple is not easy. Doing the simple and imp…
Take simple steps, unlearn things that are not necessary and learn things that are important to achieve goals and to make life simpler. There are many things which we have learnt. Sometimes, these learning which is supposed to help us achieve greater heights in life, but on the other hand, these causes hindrance, probably, one of the reasons may be while learning we learn many things which are negative learning that causes doubts in mind. If such is the situation we must unlearn certain things. So, we can create space to learn new things that are essential for us to achieve a larger purpose. We must keep in mind the process and act through which we master the things is simple. If we make the laws and process of life simple, it would be easy to live a simple life and achieve more in life. A few days ago I was watching a videotape. I heard a speaker saying interesting thing about Sachin Tendulkar, the greatest batsman in the history of cricket and Bharat Ratna awardee. The speaker said t…
