Alright, it’s February, how you feelin’?
Time is a-flyin’ by and I want to be sure you’re on the right track!
In January the energy was all about dreaming the big dream, going for your big goals, and I’m wondering – how are you feeling now?
I see three main things getting in the way of soul-centered, mission-led, purpose-driven entrepreneurs like you and I talk all about it here.
Because I know you!
You want to dream the big dream or you’re being encouraged to, and then what happens?
THE VOICES START….
“I don’t even really know what I want. I really don’t even know what my big dream is.”
I don’t want you to let those voices take you out of the game so I’m here to share the 3 Mistakes to Avoid When Going After Your Dreams.
Mistake #1: Failing To Listen To The Voice Within
The first step in doing that is declaring your big dream. And that’s going to come from you, it’s not going to come from the outside world. And in fact, if you’re used to looking left and right to see if everything’s okay and are taking inventory of, “what are we doing?”, That’s not going to work moving forward.
It’s got to be sourced in you, it’s got to come from you! Once you have that you can then get your “how to” from the world.
But the first vision, and the source and the movement comes from you.
Mistake #2: Failing To Consider What It Is You Do Want
What I find a lot of people will say, “Well, I know I don’t want this, and I definitely don’t want this.” And, “Oh, I just don’t want anyone to criticize me. I don’t want to have to work day and night to realize my dreams. And I don’t… ” And it’s like, “Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa!”
I’m saying dream the big dream, think in possibility. It’s so interesting that folks will go into what they don’t want instead of what they do want!
That’s a huge mistake.
There’s not a lot of power in going on and on about what you don’t want and rarely do you think of what you really want and we want to change that today.
Contemplate This Now
What would be amazing? What do you want? What would that look like? That’s more concrete and you’re able to really take action from that place. If you’ve gotten stuck in a loop of only considering what you don’t want, perfect, that’s great, that’s information too. Now lean into what is it that you actually want.
Mistake #3: Letting The Size Of Your Vision Intimidate You
The third thing I’m going to mention may be the reason why you haven’t leaned into what you actually want. You may feel challenged because, when you really get honest and you think about what the big dream is, it feels huge, humongous, out of this world, how could you ever even? And one thing I’ll encourage you to do, is not worry about the how just yet. Because as you can see, it’s hard enough just to even dream the dream, so don’t worry about the how just yet. Just start imagining what is it?
What do you want to feel?
What do you want to think?
Like I explain here, when I did this in my life, everything changed!
I ended up leaving my corporate job and going to Ecuador and teaching business development and life skills to orphan youth and single mothers. That’s where I truly got clear on my life’s path, which sent me on this journey to working with world-changing entrepreneurs.
So now it’s your turn!
What are you going to call in, now?
I believe in you and I’ve got your back!
