Are You Dreaming Big but Acting Small?

Are you a dreamer, a doer, or both? Is your head in the clouds and full of ideas? Are you able to plant your feet on the ground and take action? Let your imagination soar with possibilities and have the courage to take action.

If you find yourself dreaming big but acting small, ask yourself what’s holding you back. Usually, you’ll encounter “but” statements, such as:

“But I don’t have enough time…”

“But there’s not enough money…”

“But I need more education....”  

If you really want to go for your dreams, examine the “buts” to see if they are really true – or if they are just excuses. Turn your “buts” into true statements.

If I had all the time in the world, would I choose to spend time following my dream of…?

If I had all the money in the world, would I choose to use my resources to follow my dream of…? 

If I can get all the education I want and need to follow my dreams, would I be willing to take the necessary steps?

Honestly address all the reasons why you “can’t.” Likely you’ll see that you can. And there’s really nothing holding you back.
