Do you dream big enough that it blows your mind? Or…are your dreams restricted by what you perceive as physical truth? Things like how much money we have in our bank accounts, our age and physical limitations, our abilities and resources, and what other people say is possible or impossible in the economy stand in the way of big dreams.
As I look back on the past year of working with clients to help them define a business vision and launch their businesses, thinking small has been the number one barrier to full on success. So much so, that I’ve decided to add another complete module to my Business Launch Mastery Academy course called “Dream”.
When we fail to think bigger, we simply fail to reach our full potential. Our business, life and relational rewards will be ones of mediocrity and lack. If we fail to dream big, we fail to impact the world around us in the way we were purposed at birth. Every one of us was designed with a plan to fulfill.
Do you know what yours is?
Dream Big – Abundance or Lack
Those feelings of lack…not enough money, not enough time, not enough knowledge, not enough clients, not enough creativity…those are what can control our potential instead of trust in the power of our thoughts and faith in our Source. Your mind is the battlefield where ideas that come from the mental and spiritual parts of our being wage war with the physical.
Which one will win?
There is absolutely nothing to stop us from taking our ideas and speaking and working those into reality. Everything we see in the physical began in somebody’s mind. At creation the entire universe went from thought unseen to visible manifestation. And the Creator God is our Source, so if you believe, as I do, that Source is unlimited, then we have all the abundance we need to Dream Big.
Dream Big – Break Through to Your Brilliance
What steps can you take to expand your dreams and make them reality?
- Be senseless! That does not mean you put the practical aside completely, but when it comes to dreaming, you cannot be held hostage to what you see, feel, hear, smell, and taste…those things that are limited to the physical world. Ideas are birthed in our mental and spiritual being and are manifested by faith, not sight. That part of us is what makes us “creative” beings. When I get started mind mapping with my clients, the first thing I teach is to simply start putting the ideas down…whether they make sense or not.
- Be illogical! Planning comes later. Let the ideas flow even if it seems impossible. If it’s easily achievable, makes total sense, and you can see its process from beginning to end in your mind, your dream needs expanding. A big dream will make you uncomfortable, will require you to say yes without all the answers, and stretch your imagination to new heights.
- Be excited! If your dream does not stir up passion, enthusiasm, commitment, and risk taking then it’s not big enough. Big Dreams challenge us, scare us, and maximize and expand our thinking to take us beyond what we’ve accomplished into what we can accomplish next. Our mindset will create a new physical reality so we can continually grow in our potential. How exciting is that!
Dream Big – But Don’t Just Dream
I love the series of books written by Dr. Myles Munroe on potential. In his book, Understanding Your Potential, he discusses the process of thought into the tangible. He says “thought” is a silent word, a “word” is an exposed thought, an “idea” is the concept of thought moving into reality – potential, and “imagination” changes an idea into a plan. What do you imagine for yourself this year?
You can dream big in your mind, but if those ideas never make it into a clear mission and then into a plan of action, then the passion you have to make a difference will never be realized.
Napolean Hill said in his book, Think and Grow Rich,
“What the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve.”
When you dream big dreams, create big plans, take big action, then you achieve big results.
