EP 3: How to Dream Big & Achieve it!

Growth & Grace Podcast Episode #3

Dreaming Big, What does that even mean?

  • It's like the buzz word in the self-help industry right now.

  • Life coaches are all about it.

  • Here is what I want to say.

    • What is Big for you isn't necessarily big for someone else

    • Some people want to speak on big stages, have financial freedom, spend more time with their families, connect with authentic community, write a book, be an expert in their field, graduate from college, inspire or mentor ONE person!

  • I want to be honest, I have always struggled dreaming big.

  • What keeps me from dreaming big?

    • Self Doubt

    • I don't deserve that

    • Who do I think I am?

    • Probably some self limiting beliefs that my relationship will change.

    • It takes some serious work! Am I ready to get to work?

    • We have mental blocks that hold us back, and it might take a little while to get though those. Show yourself some grace.

    • You are worth more

    • You are worthy of your big dreams

  • First, you are allowed to dream big. You deserve the things you dream of!

    • Say is again for those in the cheap seats!

    • It takes some serious mindset work, which I will talk about in another episode, to start to really believe your dreams. But I'm going to do a quick intro.

  • If you believe your dreams, then you won't ever quit

    • I had an realization the other day. It's about more than just dream big. It's about actually believing your dreams are a possibility.

    • If you don't believe you dreams are actually a possibility, then you will self-sabotage from them coming true.

    • If you believe them, then you never stop working on them. They will become part of who you are, and you will start living into their reality immediately.

    • I started light chaser a little over a year ago, I dreamed of a community of women that could be real with each other and encourage one another, but if I'm being honest I only gave 1/2 effort. I didn't believe that I could actually be successful so I didn't put the work in!

    • This growth & grace thing is a dream on a whole other level! I’m showing up and putting myself out there. Because I want this!

  • I've been doing a lot of work on this personally the last few month, and I'm just going to share with you some of the things I've been dreaming.

    • I dream of a healthy marriage

    • I dream of fruitful relationships

    • Real community

    • Speaking on big stages

    • Hosting workshops & Retreats

    • Having a super organized home

    • Being healthy/happy

      • Not necessarily skinny, but not -not skinny either!

  • So give yourself permission to dream big! If you have a hard time identifying your dreams, then I have a freebie over on my website, amberleagray.com, that will help you get started. It's 5 journal prompts for self discovery, and they are the perfect questions to start to ask yourself to start the process.

  • And I recommend journaling, because when you write something down…it makes it more real!

  • So this week, I hope you start to dream big, share those dreams with others! And Believe it…live into those dreams!
