The dream and the plan ahead
As you set your plans for 2021, after the battering of 2020, let me repeat one of my favourite quotes; “Dream no small dreams as they are incapable of moving the hearts of men ” by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
If there is one lesson from the pandemic, it is that life is too short, so follow your dream. It does not matter what that dream is or how old you are, the experience of the past are all part of the foundation for your future.
Whatever you plan to achieve, no matter how far-fetched that dream may sound, it is better to at least take steps towards starting that journey, even if you eventually fall short ( aim for the moon, if you miss as least you will be amongst the stars is another saying). But, imagine the satisfaction you will get if you surpass that dream, definitely much better than not starting at all.
What is your dream and why is it important to follow it?
“If you can dream it, then, you can achieve it” according to Walt Disney. Big dreams make us think of the impossible and make them real. Consider the last 40 years and what has been achieved by ordinary people, especially since the advent of the internet?. Social media, mobile phone, flat screen TV, GPS, MP3, the iPod, Tablets, laptops and the list goes on.
Elon Musk of Tesla is regarded as one of the new breed of disruptive entrepreneurs. His ‘crazy ideas’ have included long range sporty electric cars that most car manufacturers believed to be impossible only a few years ago. This is now a reality and better than anticipated.

So keep reaching for the skies and continue to create your own legacy. Let us finish with another great quote,
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be?” ― Marianne Williamson, in “A Return to Love: Reflections on the Principles of A Course in Miracles”.
