Think Big Dream Big. Why You Should Follow Your Dreams

It may sound cliche but if you can dream it you can achieve it. That is why I will talk about how you MUST follow your dreams.  But before we get into that, let’s get into today’s challenge.

Today is Day 6 of the Single Christian woman’s challenge.  Click here to view all of the days. 

Today’s Challenge is:

Day 6: Dream big

Spend the day dreaming. What would you do if money were no object? What do you think that the Lord is calling you to do? Write a mission statement for your life. Create a vision board or prayer wall. Make a bucket list. You can focus on just the current season or you can make a list of all the things that you want to do throughout your life.

Think big dream big and follow your dreams.  If anyone knows me that is my personal motto.  I love to dream. Dreaming motivates you.  For myself,  I love to set my goals so high that it is almost impossible to reach them.  And when I do reach them, I remember all the hard work it took to accomplish my goals. You can see two example of my vision board (here for 2016) and (here for 2017)

When you think about how to follow your dreams, you MUST dream freely without limits.

If you place limits on yourself then you will always feel limited in what you can do. Click To Tweet

 For those who do not know I have a master’s in marriage and family therapy and  am finishing up my PhD in human behavior.  I would love to say that I am just getting this education for fun, but that is not really it.  I am getting this education because I want to work for myself one day. Because one day  I dreamed and asked myself what would I do if money was no object.  What would my goal be?  I came up with that I want to write, I want to speak and encourage woman,  I want to reach people who are lost, and I want people feel beautiful from the inside and out.

And from that one dream came the multiple degrees so that I could master my craft. From that dream came a National Certified Counselor certification, came this blog, and came my YouTube Channel.  But for me, what is happening now is just the beginning, I cannot even tell you all the dreams I have in my head because you  may think that I am reaching too high and these things are never going to happen.

And that thinking is where most people go wrong.  They place barriers on their dreams and tell themselves that they cannot or will not be able to achieve something.  A great book to read on this is the Alchemist (read my book review here).

I am going to give you the best advice that you have ever heard as it relates to your dreams.

Dreams are placed in your heart so that you can try to achieve them. Click To Tweet

You should never place limits on yourself and think that your dreams are never going to happen, because they can AND they will happen,  if you work hard enough (see my blog here).  What is the danger of dreaming big? What is the danger of closing your eyes and imagining the best life that you can imagine?  What is the danger of going after that life?  The fact of the matter is that most people do not dream big because they are afraid.  And they allow their fear to paralyze them, which leads them to not acting on their dream and being scared to dream (see my blog here).

The worst thing that you can do is to be scared to dream. Click To Tweet

 

I want everyone to dream big AND ask God to help you achieve those goals.  You want to dream so big that it almost seems impossible.  That way when God does get you there, you can see the power and the glory of God, because you know you could not have done it yourself.  And know that more than anything that God puts those dreams in your heart.  He made you and He knows what is good for you and what life He wants you to have.  It is not God’s will to give you a dream, dangle it in front of your face, and make it impossible to achieve the dream.  God is looking for someone who wants to go there, and dream big with Him.  And God wants to be the one to help you make your dreams come true.

So do not be afraid to dream, if you do not dream then you will remain where you are.  Stuck, wishing and hoping that you had the courage to do and be something better.  And years from now you will wonder why you never had the courage to step out and pursue your dream.  Do not put any limits on yourself. Dream big.

  1. I love doing vision boards. I was surprised when my daughter asked if we can make new boards the other day. It’s a great activity. I’m a single mom too and know how difficult everything can be, but I’m so happy to see how positive and inspiring you are. It is so important to dream!

  2. I love dreaming big too, why not shoot for the stars? I hope you achieve everything you’re dreaming of.
