You see things and say, ‘Why?”, but I dream things and say, ‘Why not?
George Bernard Shaw
Social Entrepreneurs will look at a problem and will see it as an opportunity or possibility to bring change and to do something remarkable. Others will look at the same problem and think that is too difficult to change, it is not my problem or I couldn’t be bothered. The world has given us many problems and some may even seem impossible, but if you only have small dreams, you will only have small solutions!
When we are kids, we’re experts at dreaming; we see the world as full of possibilities and act them all out. Have you ever asked a child “What do you want to be when you grow up?” Most the time you will get answers like a Football player, Superhero or Ballerina .…for them the sky is the limit. As we get older, though, we narrow our scope of what is possible, often forgetting how to dream in the process.
Have you ever known someone whose dreams seem to come true? They are living a life they love and are achieving amazing things that they are passionate about. I’ve heard others say about these people – they are so lucky but luck has nothing to do with their success, they make their own luck. They are not smarter and often they are not more talented than the average person but they simply have the ability to Dream Big! Dreaming Big involves letting go of what you believe is possible and giving yourself the freedom to believe that you can achieve anything.
