The size of your dream greatly determines what you will achieve in life.
Small dreams ensure you achieve small things while big dreams make you achieve big things. All individuals who made major achievements had big dreams.
Recently, I asked my friends and family members about their dreams, and I realized that we all have dreams but some of us have small dreams, while others have big ones.
For instance, some of my friends dream of changing the world, others dream of becoming presidents and wealthy businessmen, and some just want to own an average home, and live an ordinary lifestyle.
Besides my friends, I asked many other people about their dreams, and I realized the same thing: not everybody has a big dream. I, therefore, conducted a research on the world’s most influential people, and I tried to pinpoint the things that made them dream bigger.
I also checked my dreams, my state of mind, my life experience, and I managed to realize the main factors that determine the size of our dreams.
Here are they
Information greatly determines the size of your dream.
You will have big dreams if you read the autobiographies of successful folks because you’ll realize that anyone can achieve big dreams.
Reading books that teach success will also make you set big dreams because the books will enlighten you on how to set and achieve big things.
People with limited information about success set small dreams because they don’t realize that great achievers were ordinary people from normal and even poor family backgrounds.
Self-esteem refers to your sense of personal value.
If you place a high value on yourself you will set big dreams because you’ll believe that you can achieve them. Besides this, you will ensure your dreams are big because you’ll believe that you deserve big things.
However, you’ll set small dreams if you have a low sense of self-worth because you will believe that you are unworthy of big dreams.
- Amount of Effort
The amount of effort you put in your career greatly determines the size of your dream/goal. Hard workers usually believe they can achieve big dreams because action breeds faith. For example, Derrick Rose, the famous basketball player, once revealed that he will be Most Valuable Player (MVP) of the League because he worked so hard in his career. The huge effort he put in his career made him believe he will achieve a big goal.
When we were children we had very big dreams. For instance, I remember one of my friends, Collins Githinji, dreamt of having a football field in his living room. You think his dream was big?
I dreamt of building a house on the moon, and I was serious about it. I could get really mad if anyone told me this dream was impossible.
However, when we grew older, our dreams became smaller because we came face to face with reality. Besides this, we also adopted negative belief systems and limited ideologies that made us lack faith in big dreams.
My experience with dreams has enabled me to realize that we set smaller dreams when we become older because we start believing that it’s too late for us to achieve big dreams. Little do we know that we can set and achieve big dreams at an old age because people like Harry Bernstein and Gladys Burrill became successful in their 90s
If you have big dreams, good for you. However, if you have small dreams, please start reading self-development books such as The Magic of Believing, and The Science of Getting Rich. These books will make you set big dreams because they show you how and why it’s possible for you to achieve anything you want.
Moreover, you will also start believing in big dreams if you work hard, and improve your self-esteem because hard work and a high self-worth will make you believe that you deserve the best.
Lastly, don’t let age make you avoid dreaming big. People have made it in their 60s, 80s, and even 90s.
Thank You So Much for Reading.

Discussing Osho’s Concept: ‘Astrology: The Science of Cosmic Oneness.’
Astrology: The Science of Cosmic Oneness is a chapter in Osho’s book, The Hidden Mystery. I fell in love with this chapter because here, Osho provides deep insights into astrology. I love astrology because it reminds me of the many mysterious things about the universe.
Anyway, in the chapter, Osho introduces astrology by claiming that its fundamental laws originated from India since astrological calculations require mathematics which uses digits that were invented in India. He then proceeds to provide the following enlightening ideas.
- Human Beings Are Connected to The Stars
The Sumerians realized that human beings are related to the stars because the stars are responsible for disasters that strike the world. Chijevsky, a Soviet Scientist, gained interest in this idea, and after studying it he realized that nuclear blasts that occur on the sun (the biggest star) cause wars on our planet.
It’s hard to either accept or reject this idea because it’s also hard to either prove or disapprove it. However, the idea might be true because everything in the universe is connected, and maybe this connectedness is what causes the changes in the solar system to affect our planet.
- A Human Being Becomes Sick When He Fails to Be In Tune With The Musical Harmony in The Solar System
There was a certain musical harmony in the solar system when you were born. This harmony affects your health all your life, and living out of tune with it results in sickness.
I think this musical harmony is what we refer to as the Zodiac sign, and Osho believes that to be healthy, we must live in alignment with it.
- The Moon Affects Us.
If the moon greatly influences the water in the ocean, and the proportion of salt in the water in our bodies is similar to that of the salt in the ocean, how then can we firmly conclude that the moon does not affect us?
The moon affects human beings, and many studies have shown that various phases of the moon affect insanity levels. Many ancient societies also believed that the phases of the moon affected people’s behavior. The movies also try to indirectly tell you that the moon affects us. Have you watched in movies how the full moon makes some people turn into werewolves? Just Open Your Eyes, and You Shall See.
- All Animals (Including Humans) Have an Intuitive Source.
Many studies have confirmed that animals can sense climatic changes and impending disasters. Birds usually know when it’s about to snow, and some domestic animals know when it’s about to rain. In Japan, there is a bird which flies away 24 hours before an earthquake. We also have this intuitive source that most of us can’t access because we rely so much on our intellect.
I firmly agree with Osho because studying history made me realize that all animals including humans are intuitive but we humans, lost our intuitive abilities because the modern society became so obsessed with intellectual advancement. We focus on analyzing, researching and critical thinking instead of depending on our gut feeling to understand the universe.
- The Future is not Uncertain
According to Osho, the future exists in the present, and so, we can know our future if we open the window of the present moment. Osho believes that ignorance and lack of knowledge about this idea are what makes us believe that the future is uncertain.
I don’t know what opening the window of the present moment means, and therefore, I ask for your assistance in determining what Osho meant.
“Astrology declares that if by divine grace we can come to know the whole, then the future as such will not exist. But because we do not know the whole – we know only a small fragment – what we don’t know becomes the future.” – Osho
Hope you enjoyed today’s article. Anyway, before I write ‘thanks for reading’ I would love to provide you with a nugget of wisdom. Recently, I realized that only the open-minded people can become wiser. Therefore, never dismiss any piece of information just because it appears delusional.
Remember, the universe is miraculous, and there are many delusional things about it. And for you to understand the universe you must welcome any piece of information and use your gut feeling to assess its validity. Your gut always knows the truth, it is your connection with the universal wisdom.
Thanks for reading. love ya
