You know I’m a fan of the old motivational quote or two, and the quotes that I post the most are not just mere words, but the ones that feel I connect with and that inspire me into action.
I love this particular one because it encourages you to reach BIG.
“Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you’ll land among the stars” – Norman Vincent Pale
We are often encouraged to think small, to be realistic with our expectations but that’s a little boring right, you can’t exactly get excited about being ‘realistic’.
So I urge you to think bigger, dream bigger. What’s the vision, what’s the big ass goal that’s gonna get you fired up each morning that you wake up??
Sure we all have the self-doubt that creeps in, but start re-framing that feeling of fear. Instead of fear, choose to feel excitement.
Yesterday I was interviewed by the wonderful Nicola Buckley. I interviewed her for my Focused Mind Fierce TV episode a few weeks back, but this week we reversed roles as I got to talk about my journey and the tools I use with my coaching clients.
The thoughts of fear and worry did cross my mind, what’s if I don’t sound smart enough? What will I talk about? I leant in to it, trusted myself, I spoke from the heart and the passion I have for helping people just came out. In fact we had such a good session and really delivered a ton of golden nuggets. I will send you the link as soon as it’s released.
It also gave me the inspiration for my book title.
Writing a book is something that has been on my mind for some time, but wasn’t really sure what direction I would take it. Well now I know, I had a very clear vision come to me while I was out running and saw what it would look like and who it was going to help.
It’s obviously all just a pipe dream at the minute, but one that I am determined to pursue.
A few other opportunities have also started to come into my attention as I realised how much I enjoyed being interviewed rather than the other way round, this again bring me so much excitement as I continue to push myself to do the bigger things that get me excited and just a little bit scared.
Fear will restrict you, excitement will allow you to expand and explore ‘what else is possible’.
I am nothing special, I’m not that smart, I can’t spell for shit but I’m also proof that if you just decide to go for things anyway and keep on working, you can create the life that you once dreamed of.
Dream big and chase after those dreams daily, they are too important to give up on.
