  • 5 minutes of reading  •  30 September 2023


Do you miss the days when you would sit and plan on how one day you will conquer the world at the age of 16 or how all of sudden you will become the overnight music sensation? Even though you knew those were some big unrealistic things, you always found a way to make your dream project work.

As we grew up, we lost sight of that ambitious inner child who was not afraid to dream, no matter how big the dreams were. One thing stopping you from getting your dream project to reality is dreaming big.

Dreaming is essential to the success of a project, and this is what you will know more about here. By the end of this blog, you will know a handful of reasons that justify your dream project being just a step away. And that step is dreaming big.

People stop dreaming because of some underlying fear and sometimes due to external pressure. You don’t need anyone’s approval to set your goals. If there’s something you can dream about, you can achieve it. Dreaming makes your goals clearer, and why so? You’ll read that here.

Why Having An Overarching Vision Is Crucial?

An overarching vision zooms out and provides you with a clearer perspective on why you had that goal in mind in the first place. You can see your dream project in a clearer light. It helps you know what you want to achieve first and then later on the greater goals leading to it. All this direction and path is paved when you have an overarching vision, and your dreams can help you get this vision.

10 Reasons Why Dreaming Is Crucial To Your Project’s Success

Does this ever occur to you why you have put limits on your dreams? I have asked the same question to some people around me, and the most common answer I got was that dreams don’t guarantee success, and it is only sometimes the conventionally safe path.

Most successful people are the ones who break conventional norms and believe in their passions. I’ve covered a number of the reasons why dreaming is crucial to the success of your project here.

1. Acts As A Source Of Inspiration

Let your dreams be your inspiration. If there is something you can dream about, there is a way to achieve it, too. Don’t let the circumstances or world tell you otherwise. If you derive from within yourself, you don’t need external validation to tell you you can do something.

Many big artists, inventors, and writers are successful now because they once believed in their dreams. The power of their dreams inspired them to get their dream project.

Who has not heard of JK Rowling, the author of the world-famous Harry Potter series? She was a single mother living on welfare until she was 31, and her dreams are the only source of inspiration, making her the author of a best-selling novel series. She always believed that her novels could outshine her. At that time, who would’ve thought that a series of novels would change her life forever?

2. Adds Innovation And Creativity To Your Goals

One thing about dreams is that they don’t have any limits. You can think about anything and everything without the fear of boundaries. You can push your boundaries and open a window to your unconscious mind. This is the thing that will make the impossible possible and lead you to that one big ‘eureka’ that is going to change you for good.

Dreams bring about newer and innovative ideas because the boundaries of reality are blurred. You can think of all the possible ways without any reality barriers, and once you can think about it, you are a step closer to achieving it.

Which is the biggest psychological thriller movie that took the world by storm? The only movie that comes to mind is the record-breaking Christopher Nolan’s Inception. It’s a movie about how a spy steals the ideas and dreams of big business tycoons and uses them. Do you know what the idea behind this was? You will be shocked to know that Nolan’s lucid dreaming made this one-of-a-kind film.

3. Boosts Self Confidence

We have talked about how external factors can be a barrier to achieving our dream project, but have you ever thought you could be a hurdle, too? People need more confidence in themselves, which is what stops them from getting to their dream project.

You need to believe that you can achieve whatever you dream. Nothing in this world is too big to achieve. Once you have this mindset and start working towards your dreams, you will see that every small step and achievement will boost your confidence. This self-confidence will become the door to pitching many better opportunities your way.

So accept yourself the way you are and start seeing your dreams in a new positive light.

4. Dreams Fuel Perseverance

You often feel like something you are working on is not worth it, and you should drop it. Not getting what you want or sometimes constant rejections can be why someone wants to quit. In such situations, you must believe in your dreams as they will be the only force keeping you on track.

Our athletes set up the best examples of perseverance. So many times, you see a team reaching the finals and being so close to winning, but they lose. It is a natural response that losing will lower one’s morale, but the best way to cope with it is to make your failure your strength and let it make you persevere to achieve your dream.

Another example is a student who dropped out of school because he couldn’t learn well, and now the world knows this student as Albert Einstein.

So keep your goals clear and work towards them despite all the hurdles the world throws you.

5. Helps In Team Cohesion

You must be thinking about how dreaming can help build a team. Let me break it down for you. Once you are vocal about your ideas and things you are passionate about, it becomes easier to find like-minded people working for the same passion around you.

Stick around with those people, and you will see that people who share the same dream can create wonders in the world.

When you think of a dream team, what comes to your mind? If you are a Gen-Z, you might not know of them, but as a millennial, the best example of a dream team for me is the 1992 basketball Olympics team of many great players like Michael Jordan, Larry Bird, Patrick Ewing, Scottie Pippen, and Magic Johnson. All of them were working towards that one dream, and their teamwork is what history remembers them by.

6. Promotes Growth

Self-growth is powerful and the one thing that can open great new ventures for you. Once you believe in the power of your dreams and start following them, you will see how much personal Growth they will give you.

As you get closer to your goal, dreaming bigger things comes naturally, and every other day is a new opportunity to broaden your horizon. You will find better and bigger things to work on, and it will start opening doors for you.

Working on yourself and this self-growth will change your life forever!

7. Builds A Positive Perspective

Being optimistic is vital to achieving your goals. Optimism is what drives you to do better. When you start seeing the good in things, it will eventually attract positive things towards you.

When fully invested in working towards your goal, all the distractions and negativity in the world barely register to you. You know what you want, and you are working towards it.

As you get closer to your dream project, you will see visible positive changes in your behavior. You will look at even the drawbacks and failures in a positive light. This whole positive perspective is what drives you to do better.

8. Gives A Direction To All Your Efforts

Once you have a certain dream in mind, investing all your efforts in that direction becomes easier. Your goals are clear, and you know what to expect of the outcomes.

Many people are directionally challenged when achieving their goals, especially when they need help knowing where to invest their energy. For someone with a dream in mind, keeping your focus in the right direction becomes easier.

9. Makes It Easier To Take Action

Your dream project stays a dream until you take the first step towards it, and this first step is the most difficult one. Once you’ve stepped into it, the rest comes easily. What makes it difficult to take action or the first step?

In most cases, it is the clarity of mind. People need to figure out what they want to do with their goals. But once you have a clear dream, you know what to do and where to begin. It makes taking action a lot easier, ultimately making the success of your dream project more certain. 

10. Creates A Sense Of Accomplishment

Think of something you always wanted to do and no one believed in you, but you kept putting effort into it until you were successful. How would it make you feel? You would feel satisfied and accomplished.

You know of Stephen King as someone who has written many successful novels read worldwide, but do you know that he was rejected 30 times before any publisher took his book? This sense of accomplishment and motivation made him keep wiring, and today, more than 350 million books are sold worldwide.

Just this sense of accomplishment is what keeps people going toward their dreams. It is also one of the main driving forces for people to dream big.

Building A Deep Commitment With Your Goals

Most people give up too early on their dreams, and those who don’t are the extraordinary ones to make their name in the world’s history. Some people even find it difficult to dream because it undermines their ability to achieve them. But if you look at the same thing more positively, if you stay committed to these “unrealistic goals,” they will be the driving force to achieve them.

So, build a deep commitment to your goals and take a small step each day towards achieving them. You will see that in no time; you will get closer and closer to achieving them.

Final Words

We often underestimate our abilities, but we can only know how much we can do once we put ourselves to the test. So don’t be afraid of dreaming big things because it is the first step to achieving it.

The magic of dreaming is lost somewhere between the struggle of life and the pressure to be realistic. Don’t let anyone take this from you. Just know that you can dream and dream as big as you want because it is the only thing that will make you closer to achieving your dream project.

I have experienced first-hand that you can achieve whatever you put your mind to, and no force in the world can stop us from it if we keep our intentions clear. Even if a few of you people get inspiration from this blog and start believing in your dreams, I can guarantee you that together, we all can achieve great, big things and make a difference in the world.

Even though pursuing your dreams may provide difficulties, the results are well worth the

work. So, never give up.
