Is it healthy to dream big while you’ve achieved nothing?
They say that you should dream big if you want to be successful. Small dreams lead you nowhere and they may allure you with ephemeral success. Yet, the long-lasting success emerges from dreaming big.
But how can big dreams affect your first steps?
I believe that big dreams aren’t healthy while you are just starting. They would make your first steps unsteady. You’d be agitated deep within and you’d try to pursue your big dream as fast as you can. So, as you dream of something so far away from your current position, you would be urged to take very long steps just to reach that dream while you aren’t trained yet!
Meanwhile, as you find the way in real life not the same as the one you’ve imagined, the flame of passion would distinguish, and you may give the whole thing up just because you weren’t realistic with your dreams at the first place.
You find out that your BIG dreams don’t match your real abilities and skills.
However, at these beginnings, small dreams which can be achieved easily would become healthier; they allow you to focus on small tasks, taking a step at a time and open the door to achievements, even small. You make a good use of your skills, which would be sharpened by practicing. Your mind would grow adapted to new challenges and how to handle them. Little by little, you may raise the scale of your progress, dream big, and set big plans.
With these small achievements, which are a result of small dreams, you build your first solid steps, which you can stand on with confidence and build on them. Moreover, as your small dreams come true, you will be more self-confident and that will nourish your passion to achieve more and more.
Afterward, you’ll not be obliged to start from scratch every time you face obstacles or a drawback. And even if you are forced to take some steps backward, they would be ceased by reaching the solid steps you’ve already built.
So, small dreams are as important as big ones. Each one has its own stage in life. Each one has its own benefits.

Don’t compare your realm to mine;
They are completely different.
Even if they have something in common,
You do not have the right
To mess up with my creation.
I do not give excuses
Or listen to any apologies.
It’s not about the beginning
That you were born facing it
With no decision;
It’s about how you devote
Everything in your life
To create the end
You’ve always dreamt of.
The moon stayed all night
Behind a thick curtain
Of flaming fire,
As a passing cloud
Veiled every promising beam,
And drove away
All night’s charm.
Was it just a dream?
I wish to escape reality
You ought to choose, in life,
A way to go through;
And use your abilities
To chase your dreams.
That’s your only chance
To live up to your taste!
For when the end strikes
There will be only two ways;
But, alas, you will have
Neither a chance nor ability
Which way to go through!
