Part 2. "Be brutally honest with your present circumstances and wildly unrealistic about your future."
Thanks to Jon Acuff for this quote that I've been thinking about.
"Be wildly unrealistic about your future. "
We've been taught not to dream too big, not to expect to ever be more than what we already are. We plan and "dream" about having a good corporate job but wouldn't dare to think we could be anything beyond that.
The truth is, we are capable of much more than we allow ourselves think. We can reach seemingly impossible goals, and fulfill our dreams. It will take a lot to get there, but it's possible. "Anything's possible"
But greatness doesn't happen by chance. It is chased, and planned for and dreamed about.
If you never try to get there or even THINK of getting there, you certainly won’t. So be honest about where you are at presently, but dream big about where you can be.
We have to allow ourselves to dream
What we have to learn to do is separate ourselves from our present circumstances and where we want to be. We have to isolate our dreams and realize it will take a lot of work to get there, but it is possible for us to do amazing things.
If you never dream big, then you have most DEFINITELY cut yourself off from ever doing anything big.
