If You’re Going To Dream, Let It Be Big

There are no maybes in life. You need to get up every day and say, “I want a life of abundance!” Let your mind visualize what the finished product should look like. The process may take longer than you would like, but it can be done.

You need to get up and show up in life, plant the seeds, and take the action necessary to achieve the result. Have the vision to see the desired life in front of you. Take another step to shoot higher, break down the wall of limitations, and dream of the ultimate life. Take your desires, put those desires on steroids, and have the courage to see bigger than you can imagine!

Create a vision of who you want to be and live in that picture as if it were already true. Your mind is so important—it creates the will, it visualizes the desired outcome, and it motivates you to take charge of your actions and look forward to the necessary steps with joy. Go the extra mile and go past the point of no return.

Take control and find extra motivation on what you’re trying to achieve by reading books and hanging pictures all over your room to keep you in that frame of mind. Don’t let the opinion of others sway you away from your beautiful life—think big and dream big! Create a thick skin, because people will call you crazy. They will think something is wrong with you but be impressed with your willpower to achieve success. Do whatever it takes to create the goal you want—create short-term goals, and long-term goals, and go after it.

Apply the picture in your mind, because if you don’t believe it, then who will? There are always going to be people around that will tell you that you are not going to make it, that you are not smart enough or pretty enough, that you don’t earn enough money, but those words need to become fuel to fire your engine! It does not matter if anyone else believes what you do—you know exactly what you want so now go towards that vision.

Get clear on your vision! There will be a million reasons, rejections, and circumstances that will make you give up on your dream, but you need to be willing to put the work in no matter what it takes. You can turn your vision into reality; you can accomplish anything you want. Never listen to “I can’t.” Always listen to your voice that says, “Yes, I can.” In the end, you will conquer ALL.

Find the reasons why you want the life you desire and be hungry for it! It’s the will that makes you go for one more job interview after being rejected time and time again. It’s the will that makes you go on one more date after you’ve been heartbroken. It’s the will that makes you lift the heavier weight when your muscles are shaking. All these steps are getting you one step closer to your goal; they are not roadblocks, they are bridges to your desired outcome. Every time you feel like giving up, smile, because all these rejections, heartaches, and challenges are bringing you closer to that visualized life.

Be willing to fail. Don’t be afraid of failure because without it, you will never grow. People that achieve success have failed the most because they have taken the risks and are not worried about the outcome. There is a tremendous disconnect between our minds, the limitations that we self-impose, and believing that all things are possible.  Move for change in your mind to create the reality you desire.

Do not accept less than what you deserve; do not accept less than what you want. Dare to dream big and believe!
