Dream: It is the starting step of Success. First, we have to Dream
about our career.
1. Every person has many dreams in their life. For example, someone
wants to become a leader, a businessman, an actor, etc., to
achieve success in their life.
2. Nowadays reaching our dreams is not an easy task. Take the example of a Leader. For a Leader, there is more competition. Wherever you see, there
3. To become Successful in your life follows the steps below.
Step 1: Dream it.
Everything begins in the heart and mind. Every great achievement began in the mind of one
person. They dared to dream. To believe that it was possible. Take some time to allow
yourself to ask “What if?” Think big. Don’t let negative thinking discourage you. You want to
be a “dreamer,” dream of the possibilities for yourself, your family and for others. If you had
a dream that you let grow cold, re-ignite the dream! Fan the flames. Life is too short to let it go.
Step 2: Believe it.
Yes, your dream needs to be big. It needs to be something that is seemingly beyond your
capabilities. But it also must be believable. You must be able to say that if certain things
take place if others help if you work hard enough, though it is a big dream, it can still be
A good example would be a person with no college education, can dream that he will build a $50
million-a-year company. That is big but believable. A bad example would be a 90-year- old
woman with arthritis will someday run a marathon in under three hours. It is big, alright, but
also impossible. She should instead focus on building a $50 million-a-year business! And
she better begin to move on!
Step 3: See it.
The great achievers have a habit, they “see” things. They picture themselves walking
around their CEO office in their new $25 million corporate headquarters, even while they
are sitting on a folding chair in their garage “headquarters.” Great free-throw shooters in the
NBA, picture the ball going through the basket. PGA golfers picture the ball going straight
down the fairway. World-class speakers picture themselves speaking with energy and
emotion. All of this grooms the mind to control the body to carry out the dream.
Step 4: Tell it.
One of the reasons why many dreams are never fulfilled is that the dreamer keeps it all to
himself. It is a quiet dream that only lives inside his mind. The one who wants to achieve
his dream must tell that dream to too many people.
One reason: As we continually say it, we
begin to believe it more and more. If we are talking about it then it must be possible.
Another reason: It holds us accountable. When we have told others, it spurs us into
actually doing it so we don’t look foolish.
Step 5: Plan it.
Every dream must take the form of a plan. The old saying that, “you get what you plan for,” is
so true. Your dream won’t just happen. You need to sit down on a regular basis and plan
out your strategy for achieving the dream. Think through all of the details. Break the whole
plan down into small, workable parts. Then set a time frame for accomplishing each task on
your “dream plan.”
Step 6: Work it.
Boy, wouldn’t life be grand if we could quit before this one! Unfortunately, the successful ones are
usually the hardest workers. While the rest of the world is sitting on their sofas watching
reruns of Gilligan's Island, achievers are working on their goal—achieving their dream. I
have an equation that I work with: Your short-term tasks, multiplied by time, equals to your
long-term accomplishments. If you work on it each day, eventually you will achieve your
dream. War and Peace were written, in longhand, page by page.
Step 7: Enjoy it.
When you have reached your goal and you are living your dream, be sure to enjoy it. In fact,
enjoy the trip too! Give yourself some rewards along the way. Give yourself a huge reward
when you get there. Help others enjoy it. Be gracious and generous. Use your dream for the betterment of others. Then go back to being No. 1. And dream a little bigger this time!
