Dream like you’ll live forever – Live like you’ll die today. Wise words I heard at a networking event sometime ago, and the message remains clear. Whatever your path to success is, I know it’s not always easy to dream but working with so many amazing clients in PR, I see how possible it is to live a life that you love.
In fact the very essence of public relations allows the world to see so many stories of business dreams coming true. Your business dreams can come true but you have to believe that they can. But why bother dreaming at all? Why should you dream like you will live forever? Of course nobody is immortal, nobody can live forever but your legacy can.
The mark that you leave on this planet can remain for generations after you have passed away. Just think of all the amazing famous people that you know who, although are no longer with us are still referenced as influencers, like Steve Jobs, Michael Jackson, Anita Roddick and Dr Maya Angelou to name but a few.
Here are just a few reasons why you should dream like you will live forever.
1. Dreaming big helps you to stay motivated about life! It gives you the motivation to aim higher than the limitations that you place on yourself or those imposed on you by others. It allows you to fully stretch yourselves and dare to be bolder than your self-imposed barriers.
2. It gives you a reason to really live life to the full. The bigger your dreams the more likely you are to give life everything you’ve got. You will be willing to take risks and dare to be different in order to get to where you want to be in life. This applies to anything and everything from business to personal aspects of life. Remember to be wise in the midst of this journey, don’t let failure stop you from living your best life and learn from your mistakes along the way.
3. The bigger your dreams the less time you will waste: thinking about the small things that don’t matter; like what other people think about you or what will happen if you fail. You will find courage in your dreams which will enable you to take the necessary steps to your ultimate success.
What are your dreams and what do you need to do to make them come true?
