To All Of The Dreamers
“Set a goal so big, that you can’t achieve it until you grow into the person who can” – Unknown
I don’t think that the importance of big dreams can be over emphasized. When you were a small child you believed that you could do anything, because your mom and dad said so. Then as you grew older, you would try things and fail. Because it doesn’t feel good to fail, you started putting limits on what you could do. So when you set goals to bring a dream into reality, you typically made it something that you felt comfortable could be achieved. Which defeats the purpose of the dream before you even get started.
“It is the possibility of having a dream come true that makes life interesting” – Paulo Coelho
You have to trust in divine destiny. In the fact that you have a purpose in being here at this moment in time. That if it has been planted in your heart and soul, then it is yours to do. It is a different kind of trust than you are used to. You think that trust is something that is earned by how you behave and act.
This kind of trust though is different because it is not based on past actions. It is based on your being willing to accept the risk. No guarantees. Not because it is safe or certain that this is the right way to fulfill that life purpose or destiny. It could in fact be the failure that turns you to a completely different path, that leads to that destiny or life purpose. The trust is that no matter what happens it will serve you.
Your dreams need to be bigger than your fears, because that is how they grow you. If you don’t have faith in your ability to do something, or be something that you have never been or done, then there’s really nothing to believe in. This is because you will just go through life doing things you know you can do. And that is not accomplishing any dreams.
Unless you can imagine your dreams of doing something totally outside of your comfort zone coming true, they can’t get a purchase in your reality. Remember that you grow with your dreams, so they need to feel impossible in order to grow you. So reach for the stars and change not only your world, but the world around you.
“The biggest adventure you can take is to live the life of your dreams” – Oprah
Think of the Wright Brothers and the airplane. Think of President Kennedy and the “Moon Shot”. Think of Roger Bannister who had been told that if he actually ran a four minute mile he would die in the attempt. Think of Felix Baumgartner who jumped to the earth from a helium balloon in the stratosphere. He actually broke the sound barrier with his body he was coming down so fast.
All of these people did amazing things because they got out of their comfort zones. Because they were willing to bust through their fear of failure and dare greatly to accomplish a dream. A dream so powerful that no one believed it could actually be done. So how did they do it? What is their secret?
This means a couple of things have to happen. You have to put action to the things you want to accomplish. Your faith has to be stronger than the negative mind talk that is going to try and drown out those actions, into never getting off the ground. Dreams are life realities waiting for you to make them come true.
- If you don’t feel scared.,
- If you don’t think that your dreams are impossible,
- If you don’t feel like quitting almost every day,
then your dreams aren’t big enough.
“Life is tough, my darling. But so are you” – Stephanie Bennett Henry
So laugh a lot and realize how truly blessed life can be when you are dancing after your dreams. It is what the answer is to feeling stuck, bored, and unhappy. You just need to birth a new dream in your life.
So DARE TO FAIL and WAKE UP and LIVE!
It is reaching into your creative mind saying “I wonder if” to yourself as you think about what your logical mind has said is impossible. Then you catch a whisp of an idea, that leads you down the rabbit hole. There is a possibility here you say. It will probably fail. But if it did work, then wouldn’t that be wonderful? And before you know it, it’s become inevitable that it is going to work!
“Some of us let those great dreams die, but others nourish and protect them; nurse them through bad days till they bring them to the sunshine and light which comes always to those who sincerely hope that their dreams will come true” – W Wilson
