This 2-step process with help you turn your ideas into reality.
Many times, when we wish to accomplish something big or something new, we wonder whether it is really possible to do so! The people around us may also question the feasibility of the idea.
What makes it even tougher is that, in order to turn your idea into reality, it often requires daily efforts from your side over a period of many years.
How can you possibly stay motivated and committed to an idea?
In order to further understand this situation, let’s explore a parable.
if someone told you that “there is water all around you,” at first, you would probably think that guy is crazy.
But if you take a closer look, you will see that the statement has some element of truth in it. After all, there is water vapour everywhere in the atmosphere, which is called humidity.
For instance, at a temperature of 30°C (degree Celsius), a volume of air can contain up to 4% of water vapour. However, at this point, the concentration of water is negligible. Hence, it might even seem meaningless talking about it.
But, what if this concentration of water starts increasing? Then this seemingly invisible water vapour would start forming clouds and eventually falls to ground as visible rain.
The very same drops of water that seemed negligible at first, would then eventually collect into a river and later join together to form the ocean.
Doesn’t it seem so magical that something that was originally so small and invisible, can eventually transform into something as massive as the ocean!
This bizarre transformation became possible only because of the consistently increasing concentration of water vapour and scale. This analogy rightly captures the process of transforming our dreams into reality.
Persistence and Resilience
Originally, an idea or a dream is only an invisible concept inside your head.
Every action, no matter how small they are, that is directed towards achieving a dream; represents the drops of water. These water drops would eventually come together to form a stream.
Thus, with every action that we take towards achieving our dream, we are increasing the concentration and the scale of the idea.
This is why, it is very important to not shy away from taking small steps even though they might seem insignificant at that moment in time.
Always keep in mind that in order to transform an idea into reality, persistent effort and resilience is crucial. With every step that you take, you are laying a brick in your wall of future dreams.
The drops of rain make a hole in the stone, not by violence, but by oft falling. Lucretius
Believe in your idea
Another important thing to take note here is that the process of turning dreams into reality starts inside YOUR head. Only YOU can see the vision and no one else can.
Therefore, it is very important to trust yourself when there are others criticizing you. These so called critics, around you, might not be aware of the process of turning dreams into reality. Even if they know, they surely would not know of your vision, the way you do.
Your ideas might seem bizarre and impossible for others. But for YOU, the vision already exists in your head. All that is required right now are actions directed towards the vision.
Achieve Your Dreams
You can realize your dreams by implementing the following 2-Step Process to Turn Your Ideas into Reality:
- Form a vision of the idea in your head.
- Increase the scale and concentration of the idea by taking consistent actions directed towards achieving the dream.
Always remember that the process that converts invisible water into an ocean involves consistently increasing the concentration and scale.
The same process can be applied to transforming your dreams into reality.
If you do so, ultimately, YOUR dream will become YOUR reality.
