To All Of The Dreamers

Dream BigBe ScaredDo It Anyway

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 we are small children we believe that we can do anything, because our moms and dads tell us so.  Then as we grow older, we try things and fail.  Because it doesn’t feel good to fail, we start putting limits on what we can do.  So when we set goals to bring a dream into reality, we typically make it something that we feel comfortable can be achieved.  Which has defeated the purpose of the dream before we even get started.

It is the possibility of having a dream come true that makes life interesting.

  – Paulo Coelho

We have to trust in divine destiny.  In the fact that we have a purpose in being here at this moment in time.  That if it has been planted in our heart and soul, then it is ours to do.  It is a different kind of trust than we are used to.  We think that trust is something that is earned by how we behave and act.  This kind of trust though is different because it is not based on past actions.  It is based on us 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 us onto a completely different path towards that destiny or life purpose.  The trust is that no matter what happens it will serve us.

You can only grow if you’re willing to feel awkward and uncomfortable when you try something new.

  – Brian Tracy

We want out dreams to be bigger than our fears, because that is how they grow us.  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 we will just go through life doing things we know we 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 our reality. Remember that we grow with our dreams, so they need to feel impossible in order to grow us. 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?

Sometimes life is about risking everything for a dream no one can see but you.

This means a couple of things have to happen.  We have to put action to the things we want to accomplish, and our faith has to be stronger than the negative mind talk that is going to try and drown out those actions into not being accomplished.  Dreams are life realities waiting for you to make them come true.  If you don’t feel scared.  If you don’t think that just may 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. 

It’s the possibility of having a dream come true that makes life interesting.

 – Paulo Coelho



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.
