“The best way to predict the future is to create it.” None of us in this world has the power to create their own destiny, but yes, we all have the power to dream. Dreaming is the most basic ideology behind the ‘theory of success’.

Galloping around, we can list many examples that proved that the magic of thinking big can change your life and in order to get a wealthier and successful life, a rich background is not the only way. We all know the name “RELIANCE” today. But do we all know that Dhirubhai Ambani, the founder of Reliance was not from an affluent background. At the age of 16 years he moved to Yemen and worked there as a simple clerk for earning his livelihood. However his bigger thoughts and idealizations forced him to work on it. His great determination, strong hopes and enough willpower helped him to emerge as one of the top Indian Business tycoons.
Think BIG
An inspiration to millions, the missile man, “Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam” is still alive in our hearts. His extreme gentility made him an extra ordinary human being. Hordes of people still idolize his techniques of transforming thoughts into action. Moving further, by his early childhood, the grandeur of Kalam’s family completely collapsed. As a result of which Kalam started selling newspapers in order to supplement his family’s income. Moreover, under all these circumstances, Kalam was always interested in his academics. His rise from a small boy growing up in Rameswaram to a scientist and from a scientist to becoming the 11th president of country took lots of efforts, determination, dedication and hard work. Kalam had a strong hold over his idealistic thoughts. His positive attitude accelerated his thoughts into action and never let him back down to any hurricane.

Another live example is Indian’s Prime Minister Mr. Narendra Modi. Starting from an ordinary chai-vendor to becoming the Prime Minister of country was quite tough and challenging. It also took time and lots of efforts. His rise was opposed by many within his party. However, Modi stood affirm against all the controversies and oppositions and he went on to become one of the most powerful men in the country.

Hence, these examples are posed only to realize the fact that anything and everything can happen only when you dream it. If you had a dream that you let go cold, re-ignite the dream, fan the flames, go behind it, tell it, plan it and work it. Your dreams might meet the stones of failure but just remember that “The biggest successes have to go through the biggest failures”. Failure doesn’t mean a full stop on your journey, it’s an experience that makes you strong enough to quit and start a new life. Hence go ahead, think big and work enough for making this virtual dream becoming the reality of your life. When you think people around you laugh at you about our dreams, at this point of time I would say never get degraded, move on. Because people say 'you dream too big' to me, but I say 'you dream too small’ to them.

“The price of success is hard work, dedication to the job at hand, and determination that whether we win or lose, we have applied the best of ourselves to the task at hand.”
