What’s your destination?. Imagine you’re a 9-year-old kid writing out your Christmas list. This isn’t about things like new curtains for the bathroom. It’s about the BIG dreams you have if you could have anything in the world.
What’s on Your List?
• A new car that will make grown men weep when you drive by?
• How about a beautiful sailing yacht so you can explore the seven seas?
• How about a lovely vacation home on the beach?
• Or a mountain chalet where you can go in winter to watch the snowfall?
Many people are uncomfortable putting their BIG dreams, like these, into words. You may still be working to overcome the negative connotations associated with these types of desires. The truth is, everyone wants more. It’s okay to want more.
It’s even GOOD for you to want big things in life.
Do you know why?
Because those desires are what drive you to go out and change your world. As long as you want one more thing, you have something to work for—a reason to get up and make choices that drive your income.
Getting Comfortable with Your Big Dreams
It takes a little time to get comfortable, putting your desires and dreams into words for some people. Especially when you first start dreaming big. Consider creating a vision board or even journaling if you’re simply uncomfortable vocalizing your goals.
Many of the most successful people in the world share in common that they keep journals. These journals detail their business ideas, their personal goals, and their financial desires.
Vision boards are not quite the same thing as journals but can be extremely helpful for more visually motivated people. Plus, it can be fun to look at photos and images of the things you desire. Seeing those images each day can drive you to make the changes required to make those items yours.
Making Your Dreams Feel Natural – Even Tangible
The added benefit is, the more you see these items, the more tangible they become. After a while, it isn’t only about seeing the objects of your desire each day but beginning to see yourself in them. Eventually, you’ll be able to smell the cocoa and hear the crackling fire from the hearth in your mountain chalet or smell the salty air of your new beachfront real estate.
The more comfortable you become having these BIG dreams (and admitting to having them), the faster you’ll be able to make them real for you and your family.
Now that you have the big picture about where you’re beginning, it’s time to decide your destination. Imagine you’re a 29-year-old kid writing out your Christmas list. This isn’t about things like new curtains for the bathroom. It’s about the BIG dreams you have if you could have anything in the world.
