I was recently talking with my friend Carey who is my accountability partner. I met Carey in a Mastermind group we were both in and for the last year Carey & I meet every Friday to support each other.
Like me Carey is someone who has a mission to make a big difference in the world.
I love connecting with people like Carey because we get to dream big.
You see the problem with dreaming big is that a lot of people, including your family members, are afraid of dreaming BIG and because they’re afraid of dreaming BIG they’ll try out talk you out of dreaming BIG.
And to justify it to themselves, they’ll say things like they’re just looking out for you, or they’re just trying to be realistic or they don’t want to see you get hurt.
And sometimes it’s really true. Sometimes your friends and family members can see things a lil more clearly than you because they’re not as emotionally involved as you.
But sometimes it’s not.
Sometimes, the reason they throw water on your dreaming BIG is because they’re afraid of dreaming big and going for the GOLD.
Because the thought of dreaming BIG, and going for it and potentially failing scares the crap out of them.
So to justify it to themselves, you and the Universe they’ll try to prevent you from achieving your BIG dream(s).
In Australia there is an actual name for this type of behavior, it’s called the “TALL POPPY SYNDROME.”
Whenever someone tries to grow and accomplish great things there are people around them try to cut them down so that they won’t be bigger/better than them.
And the reason people do this is because if the other person succeeds and accomplishes their dream it only magnifies the small and crappy results they have in their own lives.
I believe that you can accomplish ANYTHING you want in your life, including an awesome relationship with a guy who loves and adores you for the amazing woman you are.
But in order to do that you must be careful who you listen to, you must be cognizant of who you surround yourself with .
It is imperative that you guard your dreams closely. You must only share them with those individuals think and believe the way you do.
Sadly, sometimes it’s not your friends and family members. Not because they don’t love you and want the best for you. But because they’re too afraid to dream big.
So today I invite you to take some Mirror Time. I encourage you to do a mental inventory and ask yourself some of the following questions…”
Do I have a BIG dream and do I believe it’s possible?
Do I have people in my life who love me and encourage me in achieving my BIG dream?
Am I really going for that dream or am I making excuses as to why I can’t have it or why it’s not possible for me?
The answers to these questions are critical and are a great indicator to how close (or far away) you may be from accomplishing your BIG dream, especially that long lasting, fulfilling relationship.
I don’t believe in a Universe that hand picks whose BIG dreams come true and whose doesn’t.
I believe in a friendly and supportive Universe that is there to love, support and guide you along the way until you accomplish your BIG dream.
But the Universe can only do it’s part. You have to be willing to do yours, even if that’s telling the people who sh*t on your dreams to mind their business and keep their mouths shut!
Does today’s blog resonate with you? Have you given up on your BIG dream? Are there people around you who don’t support you or who make you think you’re crazy for dreaming big?
If so, I invite you to scroll down and share your comments, questions and feedback because the GPS for Love community is here to support you and your BIG dreams until you achieve them!
Hope this helps!
