As a kid, dreams always seemed to have limitations. I’m not sure if it was where I grew up, the era I grew up in or perhaps it was simply just a reflection of what was going on around me. Don’t get me wrong, we could dream, sure… however, at school in particular, dreams were accompanied by limitations. Perhaps you dreamt of being a hot-shot lawyer? Or top-of-the-field-surgeon? Sure, you could dream to do that…only if you had the grades to back it up. Dreamed of pursuing something you’re passionate about? Sure…as long as it fit in a box, because otherwise how is that ever a career?
There was also the ol’, oh..you’re too young or (gasp!) too old, to follow that dream.
Well, call it hindsight, wisdom that comes with age or just a truck load of experience under my belt but I have learnt something that needs to be shouted from the rooftops. When it comes to dreams there are two rock solid, concrete facts.
It’s never too late and it’s most certainly never too big.
Dreaming is amazing, go for it and dream your little or big dreams all day long! Not only does it catapult you into another realm, it paves the path.
Our minds are so incredibly powerful and can conceive, perceive and aid to achieve situations beyond our wildest desires. This can be both a good and bad thing – but let’s focus on the good.
Dreaming is limitless. So go on, conjure up thoughts beyond your wildest fantasies. Dream so big that your heart feels full. Dream so much it fills you with hope and excitement. Dream more than a little dream until you’re smiling so bright and exuding light and magic. This world is full of magic and it’s right there inside you, you really do just have to believe.
I encourage you to take a pen and paper and jot down your most wildest dream…even if it seems so big and far fetched right now, I dare you to write it down and own it anyway. Feel free to share your dreams in the comments below, really put them out into the Universe and help manifest them to life. You may feel stuck, we all do at times. And you may certainly feel dejected and like giving up, again…totally normal in all contexts – whether it’s learning how to ride a bike, climbing your way up the corporate ladder, starting something your passionate about or becoming an Olympic athlete. But don’t let anyone ever squash your dreams, because they belong to you and you are so capable of making them happen.
