You may have started working on it at one point and then for any number of reasons, it just falls away. (ahem)
You may have never started at all, stuck in that space of indecision and uncertainty, of self-doubt.
Or maybe a new glimmer of an idea has just come to you and you’re in this process right now – playing with it, mulling it over, maybe you just bought a new notebook to bring your idea out onto paper!
I love hearing about the dreams and ideas of clients and friends! It energizes me! I know the world will be better when you bring your brilliance forth and let those ideas come to life!
Big ideas and dreams spark the playgrounds we build in our lives!
I have witnessed again and again that we can bring any dream or big idea into existence. You can. I can. We all can.
Courage is a key tool in making this happen. Courage and commitment and honesty about the likely obstacles you will face. No one gets to reach a dream without facing obstacles. That’s just not the ways it works. But knowing there will be obstacles ahead and planning for them is part of the process.
I have a dream of my own I have been putting on the back burner for a while now.
My dream is to write weekly and build a platform for me and others to contribute to that supports people in growing a life they love.
I am building my own courage-based action plan* to reach this dream. (*more on this to come!)
I am bubbling with a new excitement for this work even greater than I had when I started The Balance Tree as a health coach back in 2012.
I don’t know all the details but I am giving myself permission to explore and experiment.
My own self-doubt is showing up here even as I simply state this dream out loud.
But what I know is … sometimes even when you don’t quite know exactly what you want to create or it seems that all the reasons not to do it are loud and clear… sometimes… even when all of that is present, you simply just want to do it!
That is enough. You are allowed to just want it.
I want to start writing to you on a weekly basis – even if “you” is a pretty small community for now.
I want to share what I have learned and am still learning as I grow a life I love.
I want to create an opportunity for others to write to you too and share their brilliance.
I know it doesn’t have to be perfect. I know I don’t have to have it all laid out in front of me perfectly.
I can just start writing.
It can be that simple.
You (and I) can just start and see what happens next.
Really, that is all we can do – just start.
When that big idea inside you keeps coming back, it’s important to listen and to act.
The truth is your doubts, fears and worries don’t have to disappear for you to start.
You can just start and make room for it to feel both exciting and hard and whatever else comes up.
Make room for the obstacles you are pretty sure you are going to face and for those you may have never expected.
Make room for wins and for self-doubt.
Make room for new brilliant ideas to come to you, for new connections to be made, for you to become a new version of yourself who is playing on a brand new playground!
What is a dream or idea you have now?
Has it been on your back burner for a while?
Let’s turn this into a conversation.
I’d love to hear what you’re up to!
