"Promise me you'll always remember: You're braver
than you believe, and stronger than you think you
are, and smarter than you think."
I remember way back as a younger I used to dream
BIG dreams. Impossible dreams.
Though I never once thought they were "impossible"
way back then because, as a kid, everything seems
possible. Didn't it?
Then as we grew older and had time to experience
a few set backs and a few disappointments... somewhere
along the line we stopped dreaming big and starting
settling for what we thought we COULD accomplish or
what we felt we DESERVED.
It's tragic, really.
Because if you have ever succeeded at doing anything
well... then you have everything you need to succeed
at ANYTHING well... except the belief that you still
can make wonderful things happen.
So here's my thought. Take a few minutes out of your
day to dream BIG once again.
Divide your life up into areas important to you.
* Financial Goals
* Family & Relationships, and
* Spiritual Development
Have a heart-to-heart conversation with yourself and
discover, once again, where you would like to be - if
a lack of money, time, skill, AND belief were not an
issue - where you would like to be in each of these areas.
How would you LIKE your life to look? What would a
perfect day consist of? Where would you find yourself?
Who would you be hanging out with? Where would you
be hanging out?
Take notes and jot your dreams down. Play with them
and flesh them out a little bit each day.
Give yourself PERMISSION to dream big and design - if
only on paper and in your imagination - your perfect life.
Because it is only AFTER you know where you are going
that you'll be able to set in motion the things that can
take you there. So begin by dreaming and always remember:
"You're braver than you believe, and stronger than
you think you are, and smarter than you think."
