Do you have a dream that keeps resurfacing yet you ignore it or immediately dismiss it?
Why do you push it away? Do you think it is too grand?
Do you shy away from it because of what other people might think about you and what they may say, “Who does she think she is?”
Recently someone complained about their job to me. I asked, What do you really want to do? After a bunch of “I don’t knows”, he shared that he wanted to open up an artsy downtown cafe/restaurant. He smiled when he said it and radiated pure and sweet energy – it was beautiful!
A similar scenario played out recently when I was having a massage. We were speaking about my work as a coach and she shared her concerns about the limited time that massage therapists can practice and didn’t know what to do afterward.
I probed a little and a little more and again after a bunch of “I don’t knows”, she told me that she wanted to travel and audit world class spas for magazines and private spa product companies! She nearly sang the words as she told me about her dream! Again, it was so beautiful!
We all have dreams!
Listen for your “I don’t knows” and then dig a little deeper. Listen to your heart, find the image and then sit with your dream for a little while, imagining that you have it all right now and feel the excitement bubble inside of you I am getting goose bumps just writing this!
Then ~ Believe it is possible!
How can you believe that the “unbelievable” is possible? By having Faith!
“Keep your dreams alive. Understand to achieve anything requires faith and a belief in yourself, vision, hard work, determination and dedication. Remember all things are possible for those who believe.” ~ Gail Devers
Faith overcomes fear and doubt ~ how do you nourish your sense of wonder and maintain your faith?
