Time to Dream Big!

Time to dream big

“Take your dreams seriously” – Author Unknown

It’s easy to forget your own dreams when you’re in a situation, your dreams for your life can easily turn into your dream to escape and you then can’t see past that!  

But you are allowed to dream – and dream big too.

Here are some tips to help you get dreaming again:

First off, think big, even if it feels silly or would never happen, don’t dismiss the thought, give it some credit and think it through.  Build it bigger – the bigger the better!  

Ask yourself these questions, and take some time to think about the answers:

  • What does success mean to you?
  • What difference do you want to make to your life?
  • What would you do if you won the lottery?
  • What would your dream life/lifestyle be if money was no object?

Spend some time daydreaming – imaging what you want your life to look like, in say 3 years time.

  • Where would you like to be? 
  • Where would you like to live?
  • What would you like to be doing?
  • How do you want to feel?

Re-visit these questions often, and continue to think about them, each time you ask yourself them you’ll think of something else, you’ll grow your initial thoughts, take them further and explore them.  Imagine yourself at a future point in time, have some fun dreaming about what could happen and where you could be in your life.

My husband and I often play what we call ‘The Lottery Game’ – on long car drives for example.  And each time we play we develop our ideas and dream bigger.

It was one of these dreams that I voiced during one of our sessions that led me to being here today.  I shared a dream with my coach Shelley, and she said well what steps can you take to get started?  So here I am taking some steps.

So when you find something that you’d like to do, no matter how pie in the sky it may feel, look at the baby steps of how you can get started.  Take it brick by brick and build up to that bigger dream.  Break it down into 12 month goals, 3 month goals, then monthly or weekly goals.  Take those little steps and start creating the future you are now dreaming of, turn it into your reality.

Never forget:

  • You are strong
  • You are capable
  • You are loveable
  • And you are brave
  • But most importantly, you are enough.

You’ve got this
