The problem with dreaming big – well it’s usually somebody else’s problem. Have you ever noticed that? So perhaps a more correct title for this post should be “The problem with other people’s problem with you dreaming big”.
If you can dream it, you are expressing a part of your true potentiality. Every dream and every thought has the potential to manifest as a reality. So, if you can dream it, you can do it. But will you do it? Well, that depends on a number of things, but in the end it all comes down to you. Maybe you will. Maybe you won’t.
But potentiality is potentiality. Don’t put a ceiling over yourself. And definitely don’t let someone else do it for you.
So what’s the big deal about dreaming big? What’s the “problem” with it?
It’s someone else’s problem.
Who doesn’t believe you could do it? Tell me. I’ll kick their butt.
Just kidding! (seriously though, I could!)
There’s a quote “The one who thinks it cannot be done should not interrupt the one who is doing.”
Next time you are the recipient of some unrequested disempowerment, criticism and “I don’t know why but I just don’t think you’re gonna be able to pull that one off!”-ness, I want you to really ask (to yourself or out loud) “Excuse me, but who are you?”
Seriously, who is this guy? This guy who believe they know you to the full spectrum of your awesomness and potential. Someone who knows exactly what is and is not possible in the universe. In your universe.
This person to me does not seem like an expert to me. When I meet someone of this type, all I see is somebody who has their own personal reservations about their own life, and their own big dreams.
A true expert inspires others. A true expert will never make you feel like you can’t do something. No matter what that something is. Some one who is truly an expert at what they do does not suffer from scarcity thinking. They realize that there is enough talent to go around. They realize that there is no shortage of good things, good luck, or world-rocking personal accomplishments to go around. Everyone can have some! A true expert just does what they do without worrying about putting you down, or offering unhelpful criticism (criticism that doesn’t really tell you HOW to improve). A true expert will inspire you to reach your big dreams, because their dreams don’t cast a shadow. A true expert can always help you because they have unlimited resources because they got soul, yo.
