In January of this year, the Burj Kalifa building in Dubai was completed. Coming in at over 200 stories, it is the tallest man-made structure ever built.
Both these buildings made history, and both began with someone’s dream. Despite the odds, and probably quite a few naysayers, someone took a risk and dreamed big. What would our world be without people who don’t spend a lot of time on what can’t be done, but instead focus on possibilities?
There’s plenty of people walking around today who have lost the joy of dreaming big. Maybe one or two are reading these words right now.
Well, we still have a couple of weeks of summer left. Let’s use these warm sunny days and do some day-dreaming. Do you have a big dream that you’ve put on hold? It’s time to dust it off!
The first thing you’ll need to do is believe that it can be done. When you believe something can be done, your mind will find the ways to do it. Believing in a solution paves the way to a solution. Eliminate impossible, won’t work, can’t do it, no use trying, from your vocabulary.
Way back at the beginning of the year, I heard that if you want to fulfill a dream or a resolution, you have to write it down. So, after you read this, put your dream to paper. Don’t tuck it in a drawer, but put it somewhere prominent, let the refrigerator door.
Over the next few weeks, I’ll be floating some other ideas out there, so that together we might put some dreams on the track to completion. Remember, the sky’s the limit:)
