Keep dreaming your big, bold, and audacious dreams but never forget that if you can dream them, you can achieve them. One of my favorite quotes is from Jesse Jackson who said, “If my mind can conceive it and my heart can believe it, I can achieve it.” Always keep this saying in mind because your dreams are close at hand which means you can make them real.
The big, bold, and audacious – it is just within your grasp, so go for it.
All my friends and family members are dreamers. I surround myself with people who dream big dreams and then try to live even bigger. Dreams are a wonderful treasure. They are also scary. But the best thing about your dreams is that since they are yours they are always within reach.
So often people dream big, bold, and audacious things then they get scared. They get scared that the dream is too big for them to achieve. They get scared that they aren’t smart enough to achieve the dream. There is a fear that the dream is too far off to ever reach. While all these fears are real to the person feeling them, there is still reason for hope.
There is a reason for hope because if you dreamed the dream, it is not too for you to achieve it. If you dreamed the dream you have all the intelligence you need to make it come true. If you dreamed of the dream you can reach it simply by reaching out your hand, literally and often figuratively.
Step One: get out the pen and paper.
Let’s take it step by step. Think about your biggest, boldest, and most audacious dream. Write it down on a piece of paper or enter it on your favorite electronic device. Spend a few moments looking at it. Say the words you wrote aloud. Doing those things makes the dream tangible. When you write the dream down and when you type it into your electronic device you make the dream a tangible thing. By putting the dream in writing you have gone a step closer to achieving it, to make it real.

Once you have the dream in writing start writing down the things that need to be done in order for it to come true. It doesn’t matter how long the list is, write down all you need to do in order to go from dream to reality. This is an important part of believing you can achieve what you conceived. As you write down all the things you need to make the dream a reality you are seeing that the dream is real, it is something that can actually happen.
Step Two: you conceived it now start believing it.
Once you make a list of all the things that need to happen for the thing you have conceived to go from dream to reality. At that point, you will actually start to believe that the dream can become reality. There are two steps of the three-step process already done. Your mind has conceived it and your heart has believed it, all that is left is for you to achieve it.
Step Three: do the work, make it happen.
The third and final step in the conceive, believe, and achieve process is to do the work so you can achieve it. This means you must start going through the list you created and start doing the items you identified as things that need to be done to make the dream reality. It is important to remember that making dreams come true is an active thing.
You cannot simply conceive and believe. You must put in work so that you can achieve it. Another great thing about this whole idea is that if you wrote down the steps you need to do to go from dream to reality, you have already started doing the work you need to do to achieve your dream. In other words, you are completing the conceive, believe, achieve, dream triangle. Be thankful for your dreams because they are close at hand.
In conclusion, if your mind can conceive it, and your heart can believe it, you can achieve it. No matter how big, bold, and audacious the dream is, you can make it a reality. So the question for you this thrilling day is what dream are you going work to make happen today?
