A Dream Bigger Than Yourself

September 22, 2010

Got your dream?

If not, refer back to my previous post and dream some more. After all, there’s no point in reading my blog if you have no direction.

Got it? Good.

You may be thinking, “Dreaming is pointless! It only sets the stage for disappointment when I don’t achieve my dream!”

That’s true. You will be disappointed if you don’t achieve your dream. If you don’t like disappointment, then, what should you do?

Ding ding ding, correct! You achieve your dream. And don’t stop until you have it. If you keep going with the belief that you’ll achieve your dream, then you won’t have time for disappointment.

“Rasheed, you’re making it sound so easy!”

Achieving your dream is never going to be easy. And if it is, dream bigger. One of my favorite authors is Robin Sharma, author of The Monk Who Sold His Ferarri. And he says that one of the principles he lives by is to find a dream bigger than yourself, and dedicate your life to it.

So what dream is bigger than yourself? And what will allow you to achieve that dream? I’m not talking about fancy cars, a big house, not having to worry about bills, etc. I’m talking about helping other people out. Look at the economy now. Wouldn’t you like to learn how to get wealthy so you can share some tips with your friends? Or donate to a cause? In either time or money? I know someone who is going to run a marathon so he can help fund cancer research. A lot of people do that. But some people just don’t have the time to train for a marathon.

So basically, you need time or money to achieve that dream. How do you get more time or money? Well, let’s save that for a future date.

To your abundance,
