Everyone has dreams. Some people’s dreams may involve changing how we live our lives, like a Steve Jobs, while others may have dreams of going on a particular vacation, buying a new house or owning a new car.
While one dream may not be better or more important than another, we should all have big dreams so that we have meaning and purpose behind the things we do.
When I first started learning from trainers and professional speakers in the personal development industry, I thought it would be nice to be able to speak to an audience of 1,000 or more people. At that time, it was just a dream. The largest audience I had spoken in front of at that time was around 50 people, so setting an intention to speak in front of 1,000 or more people was a major stretch.
I remember at a seminar a few months later, that had close to 2,000 people in the audience, I stood up and answered a question the presenter had asked the audience. While technically I spoke to more than 1,000 people, in my mind that didn’t count because I wanted to speak in “front” of an audience of that size.
Interestingly enough, I actually forgot about that dream and nothing happened for a few years.
