Have you given yourself permission to dream?
So many people fail to give themselves the go-ahead to dream in case they fail. One of the most powerful gifts you can give yourself is the opportunity to dream of what could be. A dream isn’t the same as a goal. When you dream there is no judgement and no fear. Your life will change when you put more energy into your dreams rather than….
If you are anything like me, you have huge dreams you would fulfil if you had unlimited funds and plenty of spare time.
I’m yet to meet an entrepreneur who doesn’t have a grand altruistic dream to give to some greater cause.

One of the things that I come across an awful lot is people are held back by their fears what if.
What if I don’t make it? What if I’m not successful? What if I fail what if they say no?
But I ask…
What if you don’t? What if you are successful? What if you achieve the life you want? What if they say yes?
The way to success is to eliminate fear. You will gain more energy when you eliminate fear. To remove your fears you must put energy and work towards what you want rather than being pulled away from it.
When I’m coaching my clients I have them create an implemented action plan. It is exactly what it means. A plan of actions that need to occur to enable your dreams to become a reality. And it is really very simple. As we read earlier, very few people make the effort to write their goals and I’m truly sorry that I only met a few woman entrepreneurs (except the outstandingly successful) who set goals, write them using a formula and then develop an action plan to follow through. And importantly regularly update your goals. I don’t mean only the long term goals, but goals that can be set and reached daily as well that move you towards your dream.
Keep an eye on your purpose. Why you do what you do? What do you value that will prompt you to action? Where you want to be? And take control to be at cause so your dreams have a chance of be realised. Keep an eye on your vision for your business. Where do you want to go and what steps do you have to take to get there?

Powerful dreams inspire powerful actions.
Google offices have a moon shot program where the dreams are so big they are like shooting at the moon. It may seem impossible now but by taking the first step by envisioning it, it has potential to be realised.
This is the same for your dreams.
For many people they have never been given permission to dream. For many it has never been part of their family culture or our lives or have worked the jobs where there is little opportunity to dream of possibilities.
- Dream big.
- Don’t but constraints on your dreams.
- Take forward action
You have permission to Imagine – visualise – conceive – construct – the life you want to live with the people that you want to live it with. In the place that you want to be and the feelings that you want to feel.
“A dream doesn’t become reality through magic; it takes
sweat, determination and hard work.” ….Colin Powell
