HAVE WE LOST THE ABILITY TO DREAM BIG?

In 1962, President John F. Kennedy predicted the U.S. would go to the moon in that decade.
It did in 1969.
“We choose to go to the moon … and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard,” Miami Herald columnist Leonard Pitts quotes JFK. His column on the subject of dreaming big also appeared Feb. 26, 2019, in The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Pitts was focusing on the Green New Deal, proposed by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Sen. Edward J. Markey.
Though the goals of the proposal are big, Pitts says some believe the idea is simply too big.
Regardless how you may feel about the Green New Deal, Pitts makes the point that the country seems to have lost the ability to dream big – an asset that has always been what America was about.
We, as individuals, too, may have lost that ability. We may have even been taught to temper our goals and dreams in favor of security.
People who do great things have many characteristics – not the least of which is the ability to see things not as they are, but as they could, or should, be. They then have the ability to carry through on that vision, overcoming all the obstacles, battling the naysayers and never losing sight of their dream.
Are you the type of person who settles for what is, rather than aiming for what could be?
Or, are you the type who sees what is as temporary, all the while aiming for what could be?
If your current situation is not giving you the life you want, know that YOU can change it, if you choose.
You don’t necessarily have to come up with the next big idea that will give you your fortune. You just have to be open to looking at situations that could change your life for the better, and have the wherewithal to crawl out of your comfort zone and go for it.
How do you find such situations? There are many out there that can offer you a potentially life-changing scenario. To check out one of the best, message me.
“Big things were what America did,” Pitts writes. “From carving highways out of corn fields and cyberspace, to airlifting hope to a starving city, to rebuilding a ravaged continent, to helping save the world from tyranny, to digging 40 miles of trench that united two oceans, to binding East and West with railroad tracks, to defeating the most powerful military on Earth with an army of farmers, when did ‘big’ ever scare America?” Pitts continued.
Sometimes, something big comes to us as something different. Sometimes, it comes to us from a messenger that we never expected. Sometimes, it can fall into the lap of the people willing to look for it.
It takes courage to ignore the people in your life who try to tell you that you can’t, shouldn’t or even had better not try THAT, even when what you are embarking on may not be as scary as you are led to believe.
You just have to have a dream big enough to not be deterred.
If you don’t have such a dream, find it. If you do, pursue it. You don’t have to settle for what is, when what could be may be waiting for you.
