When I talk to people about the future, they tend to always be average. Most of them want to own a house, have a car and maybe an apartment at the Belgian coast for their old day. Don’t forget a decent pension after a career of 45 years. Then they see their life as succeeded.
Seriously? Is that what you would settle for for the rest of your life? I can’t imagine a life following the herd.
Think bigger, set goals and achieve them. Truth is, I don’t tell them my real vision on my future. They simply wouldn’t understand or would think I just don’t understand life.
One of the first things that pops into my mind is flying a helicopter or relaxing in Miami enjoying a cocktail. Celebrating New Year at the beach in Sydney or have Christmas in Lapland, home of Santa. Skydiving above the Palm Tree Islands in Dubai or walk on the Great Wall. Maybe work a couple of years in the USA or own a company? The options are endless.
Of course, this comes at a lofty price tag, but isn’t that why people become financially independent? To pursue dreams and lifegoals? This might all sound cocky and big talk but what’s the point in living an average life? It really irritates me how people don’t dream big or set high goals.
Aiming for the stars and landing on the moon isn’t that bad after all. Most people stay on the Earth.
Without big dreamers, no multinational companies would exist. No man would have put a foot on the Moon or flown a plane. No telephone or electric cars. The world needs people with huge dreams to innovate.
Do you sometimes get irritated by how little people dream?
