Do You Downsize Your Dream?

Do you have BIG dreams? The kind which scare you and make you wonder if they are even possible…

Do you dream BIG for a moment and before the thought even finishes, you have found 100 different reasons it won’t happen?

There was a time (pre-MS brain fog) when I would DREAM BIG of having my own business where I was financially stable (no debt) , I could make my own hours and do what I wanted, when I wanted.  The dream soon became reality – or at least a little bit.  I have my own business where I make my own hours and am slowly becoming debt-free but I have downsized those dreams.

WHY?

For me, it is more about health issues.  I dreamed of promoting in Thirty One, of being part of the Gives Council BUT over the last year or so, I have begun to accept some things.  Traveling is more difficult.  Processing thoughts is a struggle most days.  My memory is just not what it used to be.  Some would say I settled.  Others would say I am realistic.  I am happy where I am, enjoying the moment.

Do You Dream BIG?

The truth is most people downsize their dreams out of fear. Fear of criticism. Fear of failure. Fear of success and doubts about whether they can keep it up. It’s risky to dream big. The truth is, the real risk is living small. It’s getting to the end of your life and realizing so much more was possible, if only you had been willing to listen to – and pursue – the desires of your heart.

What’s your real dream? Not the dream you’ve downsized so it feels more manageable, but the true desire of your heart. Too often, we surrender to fear and settle for something less than what we really want. We even try to convince ourselves we don’t want what we want. But it’s useless. You can try to bury your dream, but it doesn’t mean it will die.

One of the most powerful decisions successful women make is this:

I do not downsize my dream.

Whether it is a vision of being debt-free and financially independent or a career calling you or a fitness goal – be bold enough to declare your real dream and go after it. Persist. Do the hard work. Be willing to face disapproval or the criticism of others. In doing so, you will be true to yourself and set the stage for creating a life which is an authentic adventure of meaningful experiences.

Don’t judge other’s dreams or even when they change their dreams.  Don’t compare yourself to others if you have similar dreams or goals.  These are the thoughts which will keep you dreaming small or not dreaming at all.  They will keep you from living the life you were meant to have.

Frazzled?

Do you wish you could put an out-of-order sign on your head?  Are you always on the run? Do you long for just two hours to catch up with your friends? Do you long to shop without having to juggle the kids? Would you like to tell someone what you are looking for and have them bring you the products that fits your needs? Are struggles from work or home weighing on you and you just need a break?

I have the answer! I have been where you are and thought “no one understands”. Guess what? I get it!

I was a single mom. I commuted 2 hours round trip to work everyday to my full-time 50+ hour a week job. My daughter was an All Star cheerleader for 4 years – need I say more. My Friends? I rarely saw them. I knew I needed harmony in my life. I needed to take care of me if only for one night. I needed to talk to someone about something other than kids and work.  A friend introduced me to a “girl’s night in”.

Picture you and a few friends gathered in your living room. Laughing. Talking. No kids. No significant other. Light music plays in the background. There are some cute products on display. You feel like you are getting a private showing in a small boutique. When the night is done, you feel refreshed and energized. The best part is that you were able to grab some great deals on products that will help make your life a little easier PLUS they were at up to an 90% discount.

My hostesses can expect that I will partner with them to make it a night they won’t forget. I will take care of the invitations. I will take care of the follow-up to ensure friends are coming. No sales pitches.  Just some simple solutions to your every day organizing struggles.

Keep the snacks light – really, does anyone ever eat?  Your friends aren’t coming to see how clean your house is or because you will have lots to eat. They are coming to spend time with YOU who they have not seen in a long time without the kids or hubby.

I will celebrate you for your hard work and ability to take care of everyone else. I will encourage you so you feel like a star. Best of all, I will reward you with FREE and discounted products for you, your friends and your family.
