Success Articles > Dream Bigger Than Today


Today is here and if you are not where you want to be in life then it is time to dream bigger than today. It is time for you to focus on the things that you want to happen in your life, and then take steps to make them happen.

It is time for you to renew your vision for your life, and become committed to being at a different place next week than where you are at today. Today is going to be your tomorrow, and your tomorrows will eventually be your next week. So why not do something today that will get you started on the path to achieving your goals and dreams?

Why today? Because when you are excited about doing something that is the best time to take action. And it can be a small action. If you want to go back to school then buy school supplies. If you want to travel then buy a map, or print one from the computer. If you want to have more free time on your daily schedule, then set aside ten minutes today just to enjoy you, and the amazing person that you are.

As you can probably see by now it doesn't have to be anything complicated. The key is to do something. That gets your motivation going. And don't say "I am going to do it later." Why? Because more than likely later never comes, so get going today by doing something, even if it is something small.

Take a moment and reflect on these questions.

By this time next week where would you like to see yourself?

What goals would you have liked to have achieved?

Where would you like to see yourself by this time next year?

Now what is your plan of action so that you can see yourself where you desire to be next week...next year?

What will you do to stay motivated?

What will you do when you face obstacles?

How will you stay focused and committed to your plan of action?

Dreaming bigger than today means that you are looking forward, you are thinking about the future and all of the things that you deserve to achieve. A key to dreaming bigger than today also means that you are finding happiness where you are at today, instead of living with regret. Now, there may have been some things you wish that you would have done differently. But don't live in regret. And I have some great news. It is not too late. You can still reach all of your goals and dreams.

Don't get caught up in the "I am too old" or the "I missed my opportunity" trap. Why do I refer to it as a trap? Because that way of thinking can keep you stuck and trapped in a cycle, where you never move forward toward achieving your goals and dreams.

When you begin to dream bigger than today you focus on where you want to go, and you create an action plan to get there. You have the power within you to decide today that you will be in a different place next week, and next year. Once you take one step to get you closer to where you want to be next week, then keep taking more weekly steps until you reach your desired goal.
