‘I will go to the moon’ & ‘I will go to the moon tomorrow’ has a lot of difference. And the word is ‘tomorrow’.
The former represents a far-away realistic dream because I can achieve it(if I aspire for it) and the later represents an unrealistic dream because I don’t have the proper academics or the links to go to the moon tomorrow 😋
So, the time frame is a major factor for categorizing our dreams as realistic or unrealistic.
So, knowingly or unknowingly, we all have broken our dreams and goals into long-term dreams and short-term goals.
In this case, ‘going to the moon’ can be a long-term dream and the realistic short-term goals can include getting proper education and working as an astronaut to achieve it. Now, at present, I don’t have any.
And hence, if I dream of ‘going to the moon tomorrow’, I hope for all of to agree, that it kind of seems unrealistic.
So where am I heading to?
We all have dreams of getting better jobs, getting more salary, traveling more, being more jovial, and many more.
So, we can safely think of the above list as UNREALISTIC DREAMS because these are long-term goals(even if the duration of long-term is as less as 1 week) 😋
So, to achieve any of the above, we have to prepare, we have to make some realistic short-term goals like studying consistently (for a better job), or finalizing a destination for the next trip and with whom would we love to go there(for more traveling).
Why I am thinking of this approach is because Maths told me so. I cannot go from 1 to 10 by not going through 2,3,4,…,9 😉 so as per me, the unrealistic dream is 10, and I am standing at 1, and the realistic goals are each of 2,3,…,9 😎
And following this logic of long-term dreams and short-term goals, before you know, you’ll be standing there at 9 and taking a deep breath and in slow motion step on 10 with a feeling of a champion! 😍
So, are you ready to become a champion? This is the chance.
P.S.: A humble request is to please read as many books as possible and also each person has different ways of achieving their dreams and if your method is simpler and better than this, please feel free to let me know.
