If you think your dreams are too big, try to start a small ones

If you think your

“If you cannot do great things, do small things in a great way.” – Napoleon Hill

This is a piece of advice from Harry  of  csswizardry.com an award-winning Consultant Front-end Architect, designer, developer, writer and speaker from UK, that really caught my attention much. I was once before aiming some big goals in life and what he stated below of the problem of having a big goals is really true. I was happened turn into disappointment, stressed and worst i surrendered. And this make me realize that i should start first on a smaller one. That goals that i only can manage and attainable that could not cause me any distress. If we think we couldn’t possibly make the big ones, why not try the small one first. Taking one pace at a time is much better than taking a shortcut way.

As a beginner, you must start with an extremely manageable and realistic goal and work up from there. So whatever you want to achieve—whether it’s losing 20 pounds, running a 10K, or just be able to jog for 20-minute without losing your breath—make sure your goal is realistic, and small. If you can’t fly Run, If you can’t run Walk, If you can’t walk Crawl, But by all means keep moving.

Rather than aiming yourself at one end goal, intersperse your career with much smaller ones. The problem with big goals is that:

  • they can consume you, leaving you blinkered and obsessed;
  • they can become unattainable, if circumstances change, or something out of your control prevents you getting there;
  • they can let you down, if you achieve a goal only to be left unfulfilled or unimpressed by it;
  • which means they can be anti-climactic.

Of course, that’s not to say don’t have any goals at all, just be sure to set smaller, more frequent ones. These will be attained more easily and more frequently, meaning you’ll feel like you’re making more progress. A small goal every two years is better than a big one every ten.

I’ve always tried to avoid big, monolithic goals purely because I know how much can (and will) change it all. I never once even thought about working in a large, product-based company, never mind thought about the fact I might enjoy that. It just so happens that working in such a place came about almost by chance, and it completely changed what I wanted out of my career. I didn’t have any other plans or goals that would get in the way of me pursuing this new interest.

A lot of changes in my career have come about almost serendipitously, meaning that a lot of it has just been changing things up as opportunities presented themselves (you just have to make sure you take them).

Success simply paid off by doing hard work


Luck is the dividend of sweat. The more you sweat, the luckier you get. – Ray Kroc

If we have goals and dreams in life we simply need to strive hard for it to achieve.

Quitters never win and winners never quit!

You heard this popular saying always, generally it talks about how a person need to be strong and never give up whatever happen. But, this is not about how people being stable and strong, it’s about TRUST IN GOD! Consider ourself, we really had lots of dreams and goals in life that we want to achieve. Sometimes we are actually in a hurry to attain it quickly. But do you think you can achieve it in the time you expected?

I believed if the things are meant to us, God will let this happen at the right time. Whatever we are pursuing to reach our dreams if it’s really not meant for us, God will make his own way just to turn us into what he already planned.

I am not saying that what you’d started and you failed, you may think that it’s not god’s planned for you and you may quit either. Don’t be in a hurry, take it easy, just relax. Pray for God, he only knows the best and could help you. Don’t just give up easily, think a better way and then just go with the flow. Don’t think life too seriously. If you have something that wanted in life and you always not succeed don’t be discouraged, make your failure in a positive way. Make it a reason why you failed, you can think maybe God doesn’t want me this because he serves me a better one.

Back, in the year 2010, I think I could say this year has not been so good to me and to our family. I lost my job and our small business was stopped I think due to some selfish reason. Do you think that a small business like we have could get lots of attention in one’s of I think a powerful man in our town? I don’t think so, he used his power just to make us stopped in selling. But poor us, my mother didn’t have nothing to do but to stop it. We really had a hard time coping it and thinking how could we live and survive that time as the only source of our living has been gone already, I may think that time that life was really so unfair and to the point that I questions God why he let this thing happen to us.

Despite of this catastrophe happened in our life, we never lose hope either and we never surrender God in our life. We continued praying and asking him to guide and help us every single day. I think he let this thing happened just to make us stronger. I don’t believe in god’s test of life, god’s love could never be questioned by anyone, maybe sometimes we tend to forget to call him but he doesn’t mean that he needs to punish us.
And I am so grateful to dearest god, I am of what I am today because of what had happened in the past. Contented and happy with the life I am living now. The blessings are abundantly coming everyday, the breath of life is really one of the wonderful blessings I always get everyday.

So, quitters never win because they never trust god and winners never quit because they believe that God will never turn them back whatever happen.
