What do you think about and dream about on a consistent basis? What dream have you put “on hold” because you’ve been too busy or you think that it might not be worth pursuing? And what dream have you thought about, but decided that “It’s too far off”, or “I’m too old” and “It’s too big, I have no idea how I will make this come true, so I need to wait and think about it” type of dream. All our dreams come from our hearts. Some of them have been there for a really long time, while others have come upon us in just the last few months.
Many times, dreams get in the way of our “real lives” and we push them aside because we think they are too big, too outlandish, too childish and silly or even to WOW. The WOW dreams are the ones that make you want to literally change the World and even though they can be exciting, they can also be SCARY.
Dreams require you to stretch not only how you see yourself but also how you WANT to be seen because all of the time, your dreams will require you to step up in a big way. In a way that you probably have never done before and that my friends, can stop us in our tracks. And yet – I truly believe that your dreams are there for a reason – because only you can make them come true.
What if your dreams are really DIFFERENT than someone else’s? For instance, you may have a dream that you may think no one else really has – starting a project that has never been done before or saving the Mustangs – America’s last wild horses? Does anyone care about YOUR dream or is it just your dream and because it’s yours you think “Well, maybe it’s not that important?” These thoughts can come up especially if you think that your dream is small. It’s not a “change the World” kind of dream and it’s not a “save lives” type of dream – it ‘s just a small dream that would be awesome if it came true. It might not impact a ton of people but it would be huge to you – what about those dreams?
HEAR ME NOW: If you have a dream, it has been placed inside of you for a reason because only YOU can make it come true. There is a way, there is hope, it is there to challenge you in a new way that you and the recipient of the dream will benefit from. My advice: Go After Your Dreams! No matter what others think of them (and by the way if you tell someone your dream and they think it’s crazy = your onto something!) It can be big or small in task, large or small on who it will affect but if it’s your dream – you need to make it real and go after it. No matter how long it takes, no matter what you have to go through to have it come true. What is your dream? And more importantly what next steps are you going to take to make it come true?
The World will be a better place if we all went after our dreams so why not make yours come true?
