As a kid, we are always told to “dream big” and the “sky’s the limit”.

When I was a kid I remember winning a poster of a yellow Lamborghini at local carnival. I couldn’t get home fast enough to get up on my bedroom wall.

My dad used to tell me that if I worked really hard that I could drive that car one day.

I dreamed one day that it would come true.

Losing the Dream

As I got older, that dream eventually wore off. I had concluded that I could never afford to drive such a car.

Many of us stop dreaming. We conceded to life and assume that this is “how it’s supposed to be”.

I used to believe the same thing until a recent conversation I had with a very successful entrepreneur.

See how it changed my way of thinking and how I’m once again dreaming big.

    I used to want a Porsche cabriolet until I could buy one. I realized I didn’t really want an asset that would depreciate. I like having my money work for me. It is part of my value system that helped me achieve financial freedom at 38 years old (28 years ago)!

    Great message, Jeff. When I look at big goals, or even incremental goals, I like to break them down into bite size bits. Earning $100,000 a year seems difficult in many situations, but it seems easier when you break it down to $8,350 a month, or roughly $280 a day. Sure, that is aggressive for many salaries, but there are many ways to fill the gaps with side income, owning a small business, consulting, freelance work, etc. The same concept works for any number or goal you want to reach. Find out where you are, and what it will take to reach the next step. It’s much more attainable when you make incremental goals.
