The Top Four Incredible Factors That Determine The Size of Your Dreams/Goals

Published

on

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

  1. Information

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.

  1. Self-esteem

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.

  1. 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.

  1. Age

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

Concluding Remarks

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.

The Hidden God

The hidden God

I use the word ‘he’ to refer to God because it’s the most common term used to refer to the Creator. Forgive me for that.

If there is a Creator-God, it has used methods of creation that are indistinguishable from nature; it has declined to make itself known for all of recorded history, it doesn’t intervene in affairs on earth, and has made itself impossible to observe.’ – David McFee

According to the theory of the Hidden God, God created the world and the laws that govern it and avoids involving himself in its daily operation. This theory claims that God got tired of involving himself with the physical world, and he let the laws he created to govern it. For this reason, he never involves himself in the affairs of man and the processes of nature.

Individuals who believe in this theory believe praying to God is useless because God never takes part in our affairs. However, they believe God created smaller gods that can answer our prayers because they participate in our affairs and the processes of nature.

Although God is unknowable, I believe this theory is worth analyzing because it makes sense. For instance, it explains why our prayers are seldom answered and why some ancient cultures never prayed directly to God. Many ancient cultures, especially Africans, prayed to ancestors and spirit guides because they believed these entities were more accessible and could take part in their affairs.

Moreover, this theory explains why God never helps righteous people during earthquakes, floods, volcanoes, and other natural disasters despite his ability to help them. As well, it explains why sometimes, righteous individuals are killed by predators, terrorists, and criminals despite living a prayerful and virtuous life.

If God was what Christians and Muslims teach us, these things would never happen to righteous people because, according to these religions, God loves the righteous, and he always protects them. Moreover, if God took part in our affairs as most religions claim, he could have answered most of our prayers.

Therefore, the theory of the hidden god is more reliable than religious theories because it enables people to embrace the world the way it is. On top of that, it enlightens us that we must work on creating the experiences we want instead of relying on God to work on our behalf.

In conclusion, although I agree that God is unknowable, I surely know that it’s impossible for the Creator to separate itself from Creation because Creation can’t survive without the Creator. For this reason, I can’t fully accept the hidden God theory. However, I love it because it enlightens people that it’s their responsibility- and not God’s – to create the life they want.

An Atheist is a Big Fool

An Atheist is a Big Fool

‘The wonders and balance of nature and the marvelous physics of flight present the truths of our Creator in ways simply too overwhelming to discount.’ – Robert Firth, Atheists Are Idiots

An atheist is a fool because he lacks judgment and prudence.

According to an atheist, the universe appeared from nothing. Despite the atheist’s self-proclaimed intelligence, he believes the fine-tuning necessary for life to exist occurred by chance.

The atheist is too foolish to realize that the sun is placed in a perfect position so that we survive, and he overlooks the many natural ecosystems, in which everything miraculously interacts together as a unit.

Moreover, he believes the design that enables different animals and plants to survive occurred by chance. To him, the gills that enable fish to breathe in water, the wings that enable birds to fly, and the roots that enable plants to absorb water were accidentally designed by blind forces. As well, to the atheist, our body organs – that perform particular functions that enable us to survive – appeared from nowhere.

I’ll never waste my time arguing with an atheist because everything in the physical world clearly indicates the existence of an intelligent designer. The seasons, weather patterns, and every living thing indicate the existence of a designer.

‘We humans, as Albert Einstein writes, are in the position of a little child entering a huge library, whose walls are covered to the ceiling with books in many different languages. The child knows that someone must have written those books….It notes a definite plan in the arrangement of the books, a mysterious order.

Sensible people – like the child – know that an intelligent force is behind any form of orderliness. However, despite seeing a mysterious order and arrangement on our planet, the atheist insists that this world appeared by chance.

For this reason, never waste time trying to enlighten an atheist because his foolishness is beyond measure. I refer to it as ‘Infinite Foolishness.’ The atheist is too foolish to realize that everything has a design and design can’t exist without a designer.

If you are an atheist reading this post, do me one favor. Go to a mental hospital and receive treatment as soon as possible because your foolishness is turning into madness. Maybe you have an untreated mental condition because any sensible individual that carefully analyzes the celestial bodies and life will definitely come to the conclusion that something brought the universe into existence.
