In the beginning, you’ll start enjoying having a dream and working towards it.

In fact, at a point in time, it appears to be a fairytale as it keeps growing and approaching reality.

For that reason, you begin to feel scared; nursing the fear of its realization and the fear of criticism.

It has been said, however, that “If your dream doesn’t scare you, it isn’t a dream but a slumber.

With that said, I’d like to reiterate that saying “when you begin to feel scared by your dream, then be rest assured that you’ve got a dream and not a slumber.”

Christopher Reeve wrote and I quote: “So many of our dreams at first seem impossible, then they seem improbable, and then, when we summon the will, they soon become inevitable.”

So, you’re free to dream BIG and don’t just follow your dreams – chase them.

Finally, you shouldn’t be afraid that your dream may be stolen, in as few as you’re not actually sleeping. Great men are those who dream with their eyes open.

Let me leave you with the words of Victor Hugo: “Each man should frame life so that at some future hour, fact and his dreaming meet.”
