Dream Bigger

While organizing the files on my system, I happened upon a document I called ‘Dreams – What I’m believing for’. I opened it to see what I had written. The column headings were:

  • What – the item/my desire
  • The Promise – scriptures to encourage me  on the subject
  • Description/details – the finer details of what I wanted
  • Potential Challenges – what I thought could be show stoppers / obstacles
  • Strategy for achievement – including the suggestions for how to address the potential challenges
  • Target date
  • Date accomplished

I totally forgot I had prepared this document though I had the key points outlined in my journal so I could pay attention to them. I read through and realized that from the time I created this document in 2014 till now, eight of the ten items have been completed – some before the target date, some shortly after; but they’re done. 80% success rate. Great!
Of course you know what I considered next – why don’t I make a fresh list and dare to dream bigger than I did the last time?
Well, that’s exactly what I’m doing and I invite you to join me in making your own document.
A toast to your success and mine.

Start today

My daughter is crazy about long hair. She has this really interesting hair texture that doesn’t quite do well with weaves. I usually say the strands cry out from the locks ‘let me out, let me out, I want to be free’. Long story short, her hair gets untidy very quickly. Our strategy for a while was to use wool to reinforce the locks and that made it last longer, but with that came the opportunity to make the hair longer, so she would negotiate each time her hair was to be styled, and she would say, ‘Mummy, how long’s my hair gonna be?’ And then she would go ‘ohhh Mummy, but you know I really, really, really, really like long hair…’ And so on.
Well, now her hair is texturized so we don’t use wool anymore, it’s just as long as it is, but she came to me last night to let me know how she wanted her hair to be when she turns five. After describing it, she said she had to draw it to aid my understanding. So she got an A4 paper and a pencil and drew what she has in mind for years 5 – 11. That was just awesome. So four year olds can be this detailed in dreaming and imagining.
Now that I know what she wants, I will do the best I can to help her get there, and I know I have to treat her like Samson…. No hair cuts. Interesting. I wonder how much easier our journeys would be if we took the time to decide what we really want and communicate it clearly to the right people.
What’s your desire for this year, next year, the next five years…? If you haven’t written it out yet, today would be a good day to do so. There’s a lot to gain. Go for it!
