Dream Big Despite Your Fears
“Dream big and dare to fail.” — Norman D. Vaughan
I have to admit that I’ve been holding back. It’s easy to give advice or prescriptions, but it’s much harder to do it yourself. That’s why I want to put myself out there.
For the most part, my dreams have been small. I’ve self-published one book and have another one on the way. I’ve started up a podcast, built this site, and an e-mail list, and I’ve had some wonderful conversations with artists and creatives. But none of these things are part of my ultimate goal.
I’ve heard multiple times, in several conversations, people talk about what they would do if they had a magic wand and could do anything at all. All I know is, I wouldn’t be doing what I’m doing now.
Even though I’ve enjoyed the work I’ve done up to this point, I think I can do much better. I want to visit creatives and see what it takes to create beautiful works of art. I want to help artists grow their businesses. I want to bring artists and creatives together so they can help each other.
I’ve been able to complete my smaller short term goals, but I need to reach much farther. I need to dream big. I need to dare to fail.
Even if you fall on your face, you can always get back up and try again.
It all starts with having a plan. What would your ideal day look like? What would you be doing? How can you begin to make your way towards that ideal life?
I want to live a creatively fulfilling life. I want to spend my days exploring what it means to live life to its fullest. And I want to help you do the same.
So, this is a call to you. What are you struggling with? What is your big dream? Are you pursuing it? If not, I want to know why.
