I’ve been in a lot of conversations lately with coaching clients about dreams.
It’s a big piece of the ground we’re covering in Life Design Boot Camp, and it’s one of my very favorite elements of the program. But all of this focus has made me notice something.
In fact, most of us really struggle with it.
Think about this. Have you ever felt a dream or a desire begin to surface and then heard your inner voice say, “Nah, I don’t really want that.”
Because it would be selfish, or because I should be grateful for what I already have or because it is impractical. Those thoughts are dream killers. They can shut down a dream before it ever has a chance.
And they’re bad enough on their own. But if you dig a little deeper, the real reason most of us censor ourselves when it comes to what we want is that we believe we’ll never get it.
Wanting something but believing we won’t get it is painful.
On the flip side, wanting something that we believe we can have is exciting.
That kind of desire creates anticipation. It moves us to action. It fuels our inner fire.
And the only difference between a dream that gets off the ground and one that doesn’t is what we choose to believe about possibility.
Your dreams matter – a lot. They offer clues about where you are meant to go and what you are meant to have and who you are meant to become. You can’t shut them down and expect yourself to grow.
You’re allowed to want it.
Note: If you’re craving time to talk about your dreams and you want to learn to dwell in possibility, then why not apply for a free strategy session with me? This link will let you save your spot. You’ll reserve a time and then be asked to complete a short application so I can make sure there’s a fit before we meet. C’mon. It’ll even be fun!
