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 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 really defeats the dream before we even get started.

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

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 feel scared, that your dreams are impossible, and if 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.”

 – W. Wilson

    • I agree. I think that when we stop dreaming, we start dying. Dreams are the souls sustenance, it feeds us spiritually, energetically, and gives our lives purpose and meaning.

  1. Achieving our dreams boils down to the question “what rewarding thing am I willing to do every day so I will achieve this dream?”

    Achieving a dream, a real dream is next impossible. But doing something every day, we have complete control over that.

    • Agreed. How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time. When I am making decisions, I always ask will this help me achieve my dreams? If not, then I will decline the invitation, even though it might be something I would enjoy doing. My dream is the yardstick of where my attention and my intentions are focused.

  2. Great post. My sister was a big supporter of mine and she always told me start when I was very young that dreams are real places that you can go to. I have taken that advice with me all through life and accomplished as much as I could dream.
