Thanks Calvin for your thoughts. Man can accomplish great things, and they certainly have. Big dreams certainly also stretch us to our maximum potential. Maybe its really up to the person. Maybe most people think "big dreams" means you must stretch out as far as possible to touch as many people's lives as possible, but maybe my "big dream" is to provide the best for one family. :)

Hi Kian Ann, let me just add my two cents worth of opinion. Yes, success is definitely up to one's own definition. Everyone defines success differently hence thereâ€(image) s really no universal measure of success. However, I do have my own indicators of my very own success. Its not necessarily right, and people may disagree. But its my own measure. Firstly, I deem having the ability to make a positive difference as an indicator of oneâ€(image) s success. To me, nothing beats being able to add value in others and changing otherâ€(image) s lives for the better. Success is also in line with happiness. I feel that its only when you are able to find satisfaction with what youâ€(image) re doing and donâ€(image) t dread facing every new day that you are really successful. Lastly, I equate success to being able to discover our purpose and mission on earth and having the ability to follow it. It has got to do with making full use of the talents and skills God has presented us with and letting God work through us. As for your question on if it's a must to have big dreams, nope it's not a must for sure. But only by having big dreams will enable you to stretch yourself and achieve your maximum potential. But then again, it all boils down to how strong is our driving factor. I do believe that if there were no big dreams, much of today's inventions would not have been founded. And we'll still be living a backward life. I believe all man are created to accomplish great things on earth. And I stand by this quote 'Our life is a gift from God. How we live it is our gift to God'. :)

Hey Shi, thanks! I've heard of the story! :) Now I've printed my goals and slapped them right in front of me, above my monitor to make sure I don't fall out again! :)

Tony, well said! "We all have to figure out our own definition of success." I guess success means different things to different people. Earning a billion dollars may mean a lot to most people (myself too! :mrgreen: ), but what may be more important to some people is to have a safe and comfortable home and family. Thanks! John, thanks. Small dreams are stepping stones for bigger dreams too. I guess the best (and the only) way to do something big is to take small steps, one at a time. So the Chinese proverb says "The person who removes a mountain begins by carrying away small stones."

What happened to you reminds me of the story of a fisherman and MBA man. In case you've not heard, you can read multiple versions of the story here. To me, the moral of the story -- one doesn't have to make a lot of money to be happy; he just has to use his given ability to the fullest and knows what's his true happiness. I am glad that you know what makes you happy.

Hi Kian Ann, What I think is that everyone should have a dream. No matter big or small because different people have different capacity. And neither do I ever want to despise small dream. You see you will never know the true potiential until you are stretch. So it might start up as a small dream but in the end it might end up and become a big dream. I guess the small dream is actuall a good way to build our character and our working capacity so that one day we can do something bigger. Of course step by step. That my thought! John Tan

Great expansion of the idea, Kian Ann! We all have to figure out our own definition of success. Too often, we just go with whatever others tell us (parents, mentors, the media). Once we have a good grasp of what success means to *us* everything tends to fall into place.

Thanks Derrick! Actually, I was thinking... would there be other ProBlogger style blogs popping up? Can people still make money blogging if they focus two more years of effort? I think it would be a lot tougher. The blogosphere is a lot bigger today than two years ago. Well, let's do what we want to do, go get a comfortable income and be happy. Of course, more income will make your happier, life may be easier, but consider the work it takes to get there too.
