If you had all the time and money you could ever want…what would YOU do?
It’s easy to feel like there’s not enough of either and, for many, it’s what stops dreams dead in their tracks. Practicality and dreaming often seem totally incompatible – a dreaming DUEL instead of a dreaming DUO!
Setting that aside for now, see if you can answer this:
What would YOU do if you had all the time and money you could ever want?
Give yourself permission to imagine it. What comes up for you?
If you’re having trouble answering this question, or if your mind goes instead to all the reasons that what you want feels impossible, irresponsible, or unrealistic … Consider this:
“If your dream wasn’t already real inside you, you couldn’t even dream it.” ~ Gloria Steinem
Most people think that the way to realize a dream is to figure out HOW you’re going to make it happen.
How you’re going to bring it to fruition…
How you’re going to raise the money…
How you’re going to schedule it…
How you’re going to form a team…
And on it goes.
Yet, all “the Hows” can perplex and sometimes even sabotage the realization of your dreams.
This speaks to what I like to refer to as “The Cosmic Joke of Dream Realization.” That is, that HOW will not show itself or become available to you until AFTER you commit and bravely declare what you want.
In other words: Before you can draw “how” to you, you must first declare “what”.
And on the flip side…if you WAIT to commit to what you want until you know all the Hows”, then you will likely find yourself waiting a VERY l-o-n-g time.
Perhaps you already feel like you’ve been waiting too long.
Here’s an alternative to all that: Shine light on what’s at risk by continuing to tirelessly try to figure it out and essentially choosing to stay stuck on “the How.” This is an act that can bring great awareness, clarity, and momentum – the combination of which, makes ALL the difference.
5 Questions to flip Risk on its head:
Jot down the first things that come up for you around these powerful questions:
- What’s at risk if you DON’T take action and move forward on my dream?
- What’s the risk of always wondering?
- What might the impact be on your happiness – even on your health?
- How confident and proud of yourself will you be if you DON’T explore the possibility?
- And, lastly, how will it feel to always wonder about what could have been?
Allow this exercise to support you.
More often than not, when there’s an honest assessment of the risks of staying exactly where you ARE … the costs of NOT finding out, often *far outweigh* the potential costs and risks of going for it!
Maybe you’ve begun before, but you started and stopped, started and stopped, started and stopped.
Maybe you’ve noticed that despite the advice of others warning you against following those “crazy dreams” that your dreams just don’t go away – no matter how hard you work to sweep them under the rug!
Follow your dreams. They really do know the way.
