Imagine you and I are sitting down over a cup of tea and I asked you this:
If you had all the time and money you could ever want…what would YOU do?
I know 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 & dreaming often seem totally incompatible – a dreaming DUEL instead of a dreaming DUO!
The trick is to set that aside for now, and answer anyway:
What would YOU do if you had all the time and money you could ever want? How would you live?
Give yourself permission to just 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 why what you want feels impossible, irresponsible, or unrealistic, you wouldn’t be the first …
“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.
All “the Hows” can perplex and 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. (hahaha)
In other words: Before you can draw “how” to you, you must first declare “what”.
You see … if you WAIT to commit to what you want until you know all the “Hows”, then you’re going to 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:
Acknowledge the fact that putting the “what” before the “how” can feel risky. Yes indeed it can.
BUT – don’t stop there!
Also acknowledge that the biggest risk … is not taking one at all.
Studies show that at end of life people regret what they DIDN’T do much more than what they DID do.
- What’s at risk if I DON’T take action and move forward on my dream?
- What’s the risk of always wondering?
- What might the impact be on my happiness – even on my health?
- How confident and proud of myself will I be if I DON’T explore the possibility?
- And, lastly, how will I feel about always wondering about what could have been?
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!
The real dreams don’t go away. And they won’t.
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 they don’t go away – no matter how hard you work to sweep them under the rug!
