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?
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
Speaking on big stages
Hosting workshops & Retreats
Having a super organized home
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!
