Dare to Dream

Dare To Dream

As a child there was no limit to my imagination.  I never stopped for a moment to think about the obstacles or restrictions that might lie ahead, I just had an unwavering belief in everything I set out to achieve.

When we’re at kindergarten, the thought of failure never entered our heads.  We never thought that we couldn’t draw a house, a person, a horse or your parents.

We just did it.

Entrepreneurs have the ‘just do it’ attitude, they hang onto it compared to the masses who allow a fear of failure to get in their way.

Daring to dream big starts with a thought and thoughts can and do become things.  So how is it that we lose the ability to dream big like a child?

The older we get, the more aware we become of others and how we are perceived.  I remember very clearly going to high school when I was 12 or 13 and thinking that I needed to start wearing makeup.  It had never entered my head before then all of a sudden, ‘WHAM’, awareness of what others were doing kicked in.  I even changed my accent to fit in.

There is a very human need for us to feel as if we’re part of a group, part of the ‘in crowd’ or clique.

Daring to dream and daring to be different can be hard.  Eventually, I did stop fitting in with the crowd and that led to bullying and being left on my own.  I had to get used to the fact that I didn’t fit in which, in the end, probably did me quite a few favors as I learned how to cope and be self sufficient.

Outside influences are what change our dreams and it takes courage to hold onto them.  Very often we don’t get the support or encouragement we need from friends, family or our partners but that should be the very thing that spurs you on.

Being different and daring to dream of having a better life is what sets you apart.

Embrace your differences, they are part of your own greatness and your building blocks to ultimate success.

I wish you every success for your digital future!
