We come to the close of 2020 with so many mixed feelings. COVID and closures along with politics has dominated the media for the better part of this year – something that few of us saw coming. However, 2021 has already arrived in some parts of the world and we’re less than a day away from it here in California.
As we look to the new year my hope for you is that it is filled with hope, peace, joy, prosperity and love. I hope that those things which you dream of for yourself feel achievable and you feel empowered to ask for what you want, what you need to make it happen.
To that end, sometimes, all you need is a little bit of encouragement—wise words from a friend, an uplifting quote on Pinterest, or a mantra to get you through the day. When you set out to conquer the world and dream big, you’re going to need motivation. What would you say if we told you that you didn’t need to go out and find motivation, but that it will come to you? Sound good? Keep reading about the five motives that will naturally keep you dreaming big.
- Live Purposefully
Often, when someone has a big dream, they are passionate about achieving it, not only for themselves but for others. Maybe you want to make 6-figures in your business this year. Yes, so you can have a beautiful home and be able to travel. But also, to share with causes, you care about. Or perhaps your goal is to lose weight, so you have the energy to play with your kids. When you have your eye on the prize, your life suddenly has meaning.
When you dream big, you inspire others to do the same, to reach their full potential. Imagine being a role model for people at the gym or at work. How about encouraging your children to dream bigger? No matter what your outcome, that would be a total win!
Since dreaming is the first step to success, it stands to reason that dreaming big would lead you to even more triumphs. Accomplishments towards that one big goal, stack on one another until you start seeing amazing results in other aspects of your life. The momentum of success leads to more of the same.
- Eliminate Bad Habits
Dreaming big isn’t the silver bullet for crushing those bad habits, but it naturally tends to occur when you dream big. When you are focused on your goal and are unwilling to be detoured by anything, you begin to notice the habits in your life that are slowing you down or holding you back. With a new-found reason to give them up, they fall by the wayside.
- Prioritize Self-Awareness and Self-Care
Like eliminating bad habits that you see are getting in the way of reaching your dreams, you naturally start learning about yourself and taking care of yourself better. You understand that if you want to create your best life, you have to be in top form and learn how you work best. Rather than having to force yourself off the couch to journal, meditate, or hit the gym, you’ll be motivated organically to do what it takes to keep you in the game.
In the end I close 2020 with my wish for you. May you always be on the lookout for the presence of wonder. May it be filled with kindness, joy, love, peace, friendship, action, choice, honor, thankfulness, prosperity, fun and laughter.
