I was chatting with a very wise friend the other day and she questioned a goal I have been working on for quite awhile. My life is so busy, I haven’t made the level of progress to which I aspire. In other words, my “victory” is taking longer than I’ve wanted it to. “I think your dream is too small,” she said rather abruptly.
I wanted to say, “are you kidding? did you just hear my schedule?!?” But, instead, I looked at her quizzically.
She laughed. “Anita, I think that you are wasting your time on this goal. If it were really important enough, you would make the time. You are really good at making the impossible happen – and I haven’t seen much of that lately from you.”
Well, my friend’s very direct words made me think: was I not succeeding at the level I want because I am playing in too small a game? So, I have set out on a mission to find goals that are big enough to be meaningful and a positive stretch. Will report back.
I encourage you to pursue your big dreams and back them up with consistent and life stretching action. Think of something you would do today if you were already living that dream – and do it for even 15 minutes!
Have a great Monday,
