Encouraging Dreams

Mark Twain once said, “Keep away from those who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you believe that you too can become great.”  These small people are the people who have nothing going on and who jealous of your ambitions. They put people down or try to convince others that their dream is unreachable. This allows them to feel better about staying in their comfort zone and never taking any action.

Be sure that you’re not one of these people. When you see someone who has a big dream which seems impossible to achieve, don’t criticize them, uplift them. The big dreams are the ones that need the most uplifting.

Sometimes we can become dream killers and not even know it. It may be a quick comment or quick joke, but even these small short words can kill someone’s ambitions. Quick careless word’s are powerful and can easily kill someone’s ambitions. “It is with words as with sunbeams, the more they are condensed, the deeper they burn,” wrote Robert Southey. So, how do we make sure we never demotivate someone in their dreams? Remember to always uplift and never give off-handed criticism.
