We are kept from our goal, not by obstacles, but by a clear path to a lesser goal – Robert Brault.
If you find yourself never achieving your goals, look at where your focus is. Is your focus on your primary goal or on some lesser goal? Dreaming big can be scary and feel unachievable. Deciding on a lesser dream may seem like an easy way out, but it does come at a cost. You rob yourself of every knowing if you could even have achieved it.
It is also important to say that going for a big dream doesn’t mean that the dream will allows stay the same. For example, as a child you may have wanted to become a artist. However when you go for your big dream you find that you love creating art, but prefer to work in a team. You shift from being an artist working by yourself into a team creating art of movies.
So allow yourself permission to dream and take action to create your dreams. It is the only way you will ever truly know what you really want.
