Are your dreams dead?
Whether you chose to remember it or not, there was a time when you wanted a HELL OF A LOT MORE than what you’re giving yourself now.
What happened to that person?
The person who dreamed big, felt unstoppable and who was prepared to fight for what they wanted out of life!
Was it ‘someone’ that killed your dreams?
Maybe they told you that you should do something more ‘realistic’ and ‘sensible’.
Was is ‘something’ that killed your dreams?
Maybe an experience that made you doubt yourself, your ability and what you were truly capable of.
Was it ‘complacency’?
Maybe life just got in the way. Personal circumstances and unexpected events occurring in your life that caused your dreams to become increasingly distant.
To be honest, it was probably a combination of all of those things, plus a million and one other variables.
Time for the harsh bit.
You made a choice to settle.
You chose to bury your dreams in the back of your head and settle for far less than you deserve.
Now, before you get defensive, start calling me a cheeky git for making assumptions, and then proceed to justify how happy you are with your life.
Be honest with yourself.
I know some of your aspirations will have been fulfilled, but NOBODY can ever say that they’ve lived every single one of their dreams.
There is always more that we can do.
There is always a next level.
There is always something else that we’ve always wanted to do.
Now for the good news.
Your dreams aren’t dead.
They’re still very much alive. Maybe you know exactly what you want out of life, or maybe it will take a bit of exploring; however, your dreams are still there!
You are choosing to allow other people, negative experiences and personal circumstances to hold you back from taking what you really want in life.
You can choose to do something different!
Somewhere along the way, you made a choice to lower your expectations of yourself, your life and your future.
However, the person who dreamed big, felt unstoppable and who was prepared to fight for what they wanted out of life…
Is still there.
Are you prepared to make another choice, and unleash them on the world?
