Dreaming Bigger Than the Town Youre From

I remember an associate telling me about another friend that he said would have to dream bigger; and it made me think about people who can only see what they actually see in front of them. Kids, especially inner city kids, are not dreaming bigger than the town their from. What they see in the physical eye is the only reality. Thanks to the internet and loads of social media interaction; most people now know what is going on across the world unless they simply do not go online. I hope to share with you the importance for not only kids, but adults to begin dreaming bigger than the town you’re from.

Where I grew up there was a bit of violence more gangs jumping and robbing others than killings and shootings. However, there was a lot of shootings and murders surprisingly for a nice suburb I grew up in. In my generation there were no YouTube, twitters, FaceBook, and the likes; the way I found out there was more in the world for me than presented in my immediate view was in playing sports. When I went to different sports camps I saw different people of different backgrounds who came from all over the country and state and communing with these kids and camp counselors at the camps I learn that everyone literally had a different background with a set of different experiences.

This has led me, in addition to my further education, experiences, and study that there is more than your town and environment. You have to dream bigger and the best way to do this is to enlarge your imagination. The best ways I’ve learned in increasing your imagination is by reading. I would recommend reading the bible from Genesis to Revelation. These stories from a literature standpoint are amazing; but more than that you will learn from the stories the good, the bad, the decisions (poor and good) people made. In addition to reading the bible, which has 60 plus books, you can begin reading biographies and autobiographies of different individuals who have achieved great things in life.

With the reading the next thing that will help your imagination and increase your vision is spending time by yourself once a day at least 30 minutes. Sitting by yourself for 30 minutes a day or more without thinking about stuff, without worrying about stuff, allows you to get insight from the Universe (Jesus), who communicates with man in visions, dreams, and thoughts (Job 33 v14-16). But we are only able to collect on these if we concentrate, prepare, and the best way to consciously concentrate and prepare for insight from God is to be still and thoroughly clear from distractions for an allotted amount of time.

This will amazingly help you increase your imagination, and that will help you in dreaming bigger than the town you’re from. I know this will help if you’re able to discipline yourself and implement what’s written here. It has helped me, and thousands of others; I know it will help you too.
