Dreaming big enough is really important in my mind.
It doesn’t mean– hating your life right now, pressuring yourself or feeling like you need to suspend your joy until you reach them.
Rather– big dreams create a much more exciting journey no matter where they take you.
Martha Beck calls them a “North Star” to guide you through life. Some say they’re your mission. Joseph Campbell describes “following your bliss.” Maslow said it was all about self-actualization.
Whatever you consider your big dreams– it’s well worth having them and letting them light your paths forward every day!
Big dreams are important for so many reasons, and if you’re been afraid to reach too high or risk too far out of your comfort zone… I hear you.
I played it very safe for a very long time. The feeling of “safety” for me became” inertia” over time. I couldn’t pretend I was fulfilled when I wasn’t really using my voice or any of my talents to their potential.
That’s where big dreams come in– they galvanize things in a huge way.
Big dreams are motivating. You might not be as motivated to leap out of bed early in the morning to do the very same thing you did yesterday, but if you’re on the road to a big adventure, you’ll wake up for it!
Have you ever noticed how easy it is to wake up on the day you’re headed off on a fun trip even if you’ve barely had any sleep? That’s the feeling really big dreams bring me.
Big dreams show you all your insecurities and things you might have ignored that suddenly spring to life. This is AMAZING because these are things you’s likely not see if your day-to-day stayed the same. When the bar is raised higher you might realize you’re not confident about certain skills or you’re carrying around limiting beliefs– and now that you see them, you can overcome them.
You grow so much faster in pursuit of things you really want.
Big dreams that you’re passionate about can align your whole life. Everything glows in the light of your big dreams. Your style might change, your cravings and habits might shift… all in the service of following your North Star.
Big dreams bring a sense of future vision to life. You’re always creating right now and looking out into the future, too.
Big dreams bring big rewards of all kinds. Fulfillment, accomplishment, challenge, rising up— it’s all part of what happens when you reach for your dreams. For instance, it’s definitely not a walk in the park to start a business but… there are no salary limits, creative limits or any limits on what you can do!
Big dreams = Big creativity. The resourcefulness, flexibility and every kind of creativity involved in bringing big dreams to life is unmatched. When you want something, that desire summons all of your superpowers to the forefront of your life.
Big dreams have you start looking for more from each day. When you want to get somewhere, you’d be tempted to drive all day with minimal stops. Same thing happens when you’re building a burning desire into a reality– you want it now. And, that means making the most of every minute of every day!
Big dreams help us to actualize ourselves. Times when I had big dreams to bring to life, I was called to a higher level of focus, learning and growing. Every time, my life changed in the process of getting to a big milestone I dreamed about in my life. The times where I didn’t have big dreams, I felt myself sliding backward into more spaced-out, more “lost” and self-critical old patterns. Big dreams have massive personal growth benefits!
Big dreams bring people together in synergy and innovation. If you know anyone who has bright a big dream to life, I’m 99% sure they didn’t do it alone. Most big dreams require all kinds of support, encouragement, teamwork at times and synergy in so many ways. This habit of coming together to support each other in our big dreams— if it was more universally adopted– could radically transform the world and help solve so many problems.
Big dreams tend to actualize amazing results faster than if we aimed for the things that seem “easier” or more “realistic” to others.
It’s true. I languish when I don’t really want something I’m supposed to be working toward. Procrastination, laziness, no ideas, no sparks.
So does just about everyone I know.
And, so, dream big.
You don’t have to overturn your life. Just take a single step and then another toward the big awesome things you really want.
I know, it feels like there’s a lot of uncertainty in the world. And, you’re already so busy. And, there’s probably a more perfect time….
But in three years you’ll definitely wish you started today!
