Dream Big

There are no limits!

Big Dreams bring adventure, challenge, excitement, fun, & maybe a little disapointment at times!  Nevertheless, dreaming BIG is always worth it because we grow and learn and accomplish great things.  Whether it's a great thing deep inside our character or a great thing that impacts and influences others... it's still totally worth the risk.
Dreaming BIG is risky - yup, requires us to think bigger than just us, think outside the box & usually collaborate with others to make our dreams happen... but it's ALL good!
Some of us are natural visionaries - yah, makes it so much easier...but everyone can dream big.  I want to challenge you to start a list.  Set aside a little time to brainstorm, grab a pen and paper.
 
It's easy.  If you have done this before... do it again.  Dream bigger.

 
So IF money is no object, IF your current situation/education/job does not stand in your way.... start with the title; 'Unlimited Dreams'.  It's very important not to impose any limitations - real or imagined - such as money, age, sex, race, children, family, education, past experiences etc. on our Dream Big List!  Suspend all judgement of whether or not you can achieve your dream or whether you are worthy of it.  Just write it down!

Here are some prompting questions:
What do you want to be?
What extraordinary things would you like to do?
Who would you like to help?
What kind of impact would you like to have in your job?
How could you turn one of your hobbies into a business?
Is there something new you would like to learn?
What do you want to share?
What do you want your net worth to be 10 yrs. from now? When you retire?
Where do you want to travel?
What crazy adventure would you like to take part in? Or lead?
What kind of family life do you want?
What kind of home would be your dream home?
How healthy do you want to be?  
What goals can you set to help you achieve some out-of-the-box fitness achievements?
What charity's would you like to support? How much? Maybe you would like to start a charity and change lives that way!
What really really bothers you?  Can you do something to change it?
What silly things would you like to do?
What new things would you like to learn?
What one great thing would you dare to attempt if you knew, if you absolutely knew you could not fail?
Be sure to include goals that embrace every area of your life: family & home, spiritual, health, fitness, relationships/social, career/financial & your own personal development.   Have fun, let loose! (pretend no one is ever going to see your list...don't let anything limit you)   This list is just the beginning - but once you have dared to dream, choose one and begin to set some serious steps in place in order to achieve it!  Choose a timeframe, put up a picture, share the goal with others (accountability) and begin your journey.

Here is another empowering idea, surround yourself with others who dream big and are visionaries.  Whether you are a 'visionary' or a 'let's get this project done' type of person or an 'I don't know where to start' kinda person... we all need each other to accomplish our dreams & goals.  Be excited for others who are living out their accomplishments & allow it to motivate you.  Learn from them, be a friend who rejoices with them... some of that dream big mentality will rub off on you!  

IMAGINE...your life could be filled with adventure and be significantly different in a few years, just because you dared to dream big!
