Conventional Wisdom?

Monday, May 9th, 2016

Conventional wisdom often holds people back and is certainly not all that wise.

If you listen to conventional wisdom you’ve likely been told that if you reach for the stars you’ll never get there or that it’s silly to dream big dreams.

Maybe you’ve been told that your goals are unrealistic and that you need to remember who you are and where you came from. Well intentioned people may tell you you’ll disappoint yourself and you’re setting yourself up for a big let down.

But at the end of the day we must have our dreams as living would be pretty bland without them.

At the beginning of the day were excited because we’ve slept on those big dreams the night before.

I love to imagine myself getting an award and my acceptance speech after I’ve received it.
It makes me feel that it is possible and I’m not let down because I’m dreaming a dream rather than actually receiving that award. In fact, it makes me feel fantastic whether or not I ever actually get it!

The best dreams we have in our sleep are the ones where we soar. Have you had one of these?

Too bad we don’t allow ourselves more time to think of the sweet dreams that are possible for us.

We need more of these dreams.

Conventional wisdom was designed to keep us in line with the norm.
This is cautionary at best, meant to keep us grounded.

And to a degree there is wisdom in grounding BUT where would we be if we only paid attention to the norm?

Think Big.

Dream Big.

Dare to get past convention.
