“Dream big. Start small. Act now.” is a phrase that captures one of the most phenomenal thoughts of all time. It shows that you see the big picture and are on the fast track to stardom.
Make sure that your dreams are not just realistic and achievable, but that they also challenge you. For example, if your workout goals are ones you can achieve without breaking a sweat, you need to upgrade them.
Dreams are meant to be big. If you have dreams and they are not big, you have not started dreaming. It is only a dream when it is worth the sacrifice of your time, space, relationships, pleasure and freedom. If you are not ready to dream big, do not even bother dreaming at all.
After you have committed your heart to a big dream, it is time to get to work. Rome was not built in a day – and you will not get to the peak of your dream right away. Most of the time, you do not have the strength, the skill or the resources to hit the ground running right off the bat. It is OK to start small.
Starting small does not mean you will not get there, or that it will take forever. The plan is to start where you are right now and improve gradually – building the capacity to take on bigger challenges.
You see, a big dream is more like a journey than a task. If you can commit yourself to continuously developing yourself and increasing your strength, you are ready to go.
It is alright to start small, but it is never cool to remain small. Starting small is not an excuse for mediocrity, and it is never a ticket to failure. You start small so that you can naturally grow until you are ready to operate – and make your life phenomenal, as you have always wanted.
Now you have a big dream, and you are willing to start small. The next decision you need to make is to start right away. You may have all the right strategies to execute a perfect idea, but if you do not start right away, they will all amount to nothing.
In the realm of weight loss and fitness, a delay is the end of your dream. The more you wait until you “are ready,” the worse it gets for you. You cannot afford to be a follower of your fatigue. If you are waiting to be ready, you will never get anything done.
You must come to realize the value of today, this moment and how much it can affect the rest of your life. “Now” is the only time you will ever have. Use it wisely.
Do you trust yourself? Most of us don't ask that question too often as we naturally tend to think that we all do. What many of us don't realize is that your level of self-trust can be different about different things. You may trust your instincts and yourself in some things, like driving your car or caring for pets, for example. But what about when it comes to making big commitments or decisions? Do you trust your intuition and reasoning to make decisions that are actually yours and makeYOU happy and not someone else?
No matter how you handled yesterday, there is nothing you can do about it now. Whatever tomorrow has to offer has yet to be unveiled – and you have no control over it. The only time you can control is NOW – so bring your A-GAME and make the best of it.
You may think you can just do it tomorrow – but tomorrow is a myth because there is always a tomorrow. If you are not going to do it now, then you may never actually get around to doing it. Make the best of the now and get right to what you planned to do.
