What is common between Mahatma Gandhi, N. R. Narayana Murthy and Sachin Tendulkar? They are all legends in their own rights, but when the odds were against them, they had their dream to drive them forward. Successful people dream big, even if the goal may seem extremely difficult to achieve. Dreams are what differentiate successful people from ordinary people. Les Brown, a well-renowned motivational speaker, once said, “Shoot for the moon. Even if a person misses, he will land among the stars”. Ordinary people only dream about what they can achieve. Hence, they can never carry out extraordinary tasks. Mahatma Gandhi dreamt about an independent India. No one believed in his dream at the time because it seemed unachievable. However, he was determined and never gave up and after years of struggles, his dream of free India was realized. The founder of Infosys, Narayana Murthy, had humble beginnings yet he dreamt big and became the CEO of India’s largest software company. Although he did not have funds to establish a business initially, he and his family worked hard to make his dream a reality. When Kapil Dev lifted the world cup at the Lord’s balcony, somewhere in Bandra a young boy dreamt of lifting the cup again for his country. 28 years later and after playing in 6 World Cups, Sachin Tendulkar finally held the cup of the champion. Dreams are visions of where a person finds themselves to be the happiest. If happiness is the key to success, then dreams are building blocks into a world that only you can create. Dreams are truly powerful and can make you achieve extraordinary things. As I read Prof. Vaidya’s blog and following comments from my friend, I recalled John Lennon’s famous lines,” you may say I'm a dreamer but I'm not the only one” and realized Im not the only one, in the SPJIMR family everyone is a dreamer and every day in SPJIMR gives you opportunities to take a step closer to achieving your dreams. Thanks to Prof. Vaidya for such an inspirational and powerful blog.
