Are You Dreaming Too Small?

Are you settling?

Keeping your dreams small, contained, manageable?

What is holding you back? Or down?

Have you ever stopped to realize that the only thing that holds us back are the thoughts we think?

What we believe is possible or doable, or justifiable. Thoughts. Those strings of words we give meaning to. Words that have no power at all until we decide to give them power and embrace them as truth.

What if you dreamed a little bigger? Just outside of what seems reasonable?

What if, instead of asking what is safely attainable, you asked: what do I want? Really, really want?

What would that look like for you?

I guarantee you what you really want is bigger than what you’re asking and hoping for.

We decide what is possible and impossible for us. Then we use other people’s reactions to our dreams to shore up our beliefs. Stop saying it’s too hard. Stop saying the chances are slim. Stop even looking at chances.

Look at what you want to experience and go for it.

There is no advantage to dreaming small. And there is nothing to lose by dreaming big.

Either way, you take a risk.

There is, however, a danger to dreaming small. And that danger is a life half-lived.

Dream bigger.
