You only have this one life. You have choices. You can bounce along and “go with the flow” or you can “dream big and aim high!” For twenty years I’ve watched and provided encouragement and support as clients make a decision to want a happier, more fulfilling life for themselves. It’s been so rewarding watching as they have breakthroughs in their lives.
It starts with choosing a new path and having the courage and discipline to make it happen.
So as you head into the new year, I’d like to encourage you to answer the following question:
What are one or two hopes and dreams you have for yourself, your family and your business this year?
“Dream big and aim high” is an idea I heard while listening to Gary Keller, founder of Keller Williams Realty. I love the idea and have tried to live my life with that intention.
Anyone can live an average life – that’s pretty easy and usually unremarkable.
Wouldn’t you rather shoot for the moon and pursue an extraordinary life?
Take some time and think about it. If you were willing to dream big… what would you dream about? Wouldn’t it be more rewarding and fulfilling to pursue that life then simply stumble along in an ordinary life?
I have two coaches, John and Joelle, who have helped me articulate my dreams. They also hold me accountable to living into my biggest vision. A great coach will help you dream big and help you sort out the steps you need to take to make it happen.
Start the year with a big dream! Have fun chasing it! That’s when life is most engaging and rewarding. Find someone to help hold you accountable – a coach, a mentor or a trusted adviser. Email me your goals and I’ll send you a quarterly reminder.
The new year is here. Make it a great one! Start with a big dream. You’ve got this.
