As kids, our aspirations might seem ridiculous to adults, but are they really? Our early years are the time when our minds are unfettered and free of things like bills, plans and politics. Those are the years when we truly let loose our imaginations and see things which, although invisible to older folks, then become the realities we set out to create for ourselves.
Many of the great minds of our time knew what they wanted to become from a very early age. As a boy, Stephen Spielberg‘s mom would allow him to turn their living room into chaotic ‘movie sets’. Usain Bolt was an energetic kid who would run everywhere, according to his dad.
The kid who wants to be an astronaut might end up launching a career that breaks through into new frontiers. The kid who envisioned herself as a princess might one day rule her own fashion empire. The dreams may be transformed over time as we learn new things and navigate our way through life, but the bigger the dream and the more we are allowed to believe in it (sometimes in spite of ‘reality’) is the more likely we are to achieve great things.
“Cherish your visions and your dreams as they are the children of your soul, the blueprints of your ultimate achievements.” – Napoleon Hill
