Those who are crazy enough to think they can change the world usually do.
Human imagination knows no limits. The same goes for our dreams as well, especially the ones we see in our childhood and adolescence. However, more often than not, the pragmatism and practical approach that come with age tend to take their toll on our ability to dream. We generally justify this by labeling our very dreams as unreasonable, infantile, or impossible. Sure, this is not always an exaggeration or overreaction. That said, an equally undeniable truth is that it is generally some crazy idea that leads to an unbelievable accomplishment. This is because the higher we aim, the higher we are likely to shoot. Yes, even if the target appears to be increasingly unattainable over time.
Let’s face it. We have all dreamed big at some point in our lives. All dreams have one thing in common: a desire for change. The longer we brood over a dream, either indulging in over-analyzing it or procrastinating it, the likelier it gets for it to remain what it was: a cherished but unfulfilled dream. Of course, this does not mean that we should abstain from planning or strategizing. However, sometimes it is better to let our imagination guide us instead of thinking too much about the viability of our plans. That way, we make sure that we put your best foot forward instead of waiting for a ‘better’ opportunity to act.
Remember, you can do whatever you imagine, and you can achieve whatever you set out to. All it takes is a lot of determination, hard work, and unconditional support from your near and dear ones. Luck also often plays a part, but it usually takes care of itself as long as you do your part right. The co-founder of Apple, Steve Jobs, is well-known for his quote in this regard: “Those who are crazy enough to think they can change the world usually do.” The quote is also often attributed to Rob Siltanen.
