I never stop dreaming.
I am one of those people who constantly have a million ideas buzzing through their mind at once.
Not all brilliant ideas… and quite a few ri-donk-ulous ones too.
I have succeeded in setting amazing business goals that are achievable and attainable and… well… safe 🙁
I know I can achieve them in time. Every time I set these goals, I think to myself, “if I can achieve these goals and get my shit (my processes) sorted out, THEN I’ll be able to focus on getting bigger and better. I fear I’ve done it all around the wrong way.
You see, this is where working from a home-based business can really SUCK. I have no colleagues to bounce my ideas off. No one to say “that’s a great idea” or “have you thought about doing…” But that’s ok… I have my husband. Right?
Tim is an amazing backbone to my business. He created (and maintains) my incredible website. He processes pays, completes BAS statements, uses MYOB to keep our accounts strong and can sort out any problem to do with our email systems that arise.
He also doesn’t believe in the word ‘magical’ or ‘dream’. He is sensible. He is frugal and he is the place where all of my brilliant, slightly unachievable ideas go to die. He is pretty much the opposite to me.
Just today, he told me to ‘stop dreaming’. I understand that I get a little carried away… but really? I felt a little squashed at that point.
But where would we be without dreaming? Dreaming allows us to explore a time and place that doesn’t exist yet. It gives us hope that things can be greater and better. It calms us when feel as though there is no way forward.
Dreaming for me is how I style my life. And look where it has gotten me so far… I’ve checked a lot of things off my ‘me list’ and I’m only 30.
What are your dreams and aspirations?
Here is my challenge to you. Create a Dream Board. It can be for your work, family life or a personal board. I am going to do the same. I am going to create a business dream board. It is going to be a stimulating visual piece that I can hang in my office and look at each time I come in here. It will have pictures of who my clients are. The places that we will work. The holidays and financial rewards that I will receive from my business and pictures that dig deep into WHY I went into the business in the first place. Just to keep me grounded. I’m going to complete this task by the end of the holidays and share it with you all. I can’t wait. And I’d LOVE to see yours, so make sure you post them to my Facebook page.
I did it! I created a vision board that ooozes all of my long term dreams. Here it is.
Whatever you want… never stop dreaming. I promise it will be worth it.
