I've often heard that if you don't know where you're going…you'll stay right where you are. That's just not good enough for me – how about you?
I grew up as an "Army Brat" and moved every 1-3 years until I got to high school. I don't know if that instilled a wanderlust into my spirit or if I would have been that way anyway. I love to travel, explore new places, meet new people, have new experiences, etc. I also love to read. My reading lately has been focused on self development and business building.
I'm consistently seeing a common thread in my reading…high achievers have a "Big Why". This "Big Why" is all about having a purpose, a reason for doing what you do, a mission or a need that drives you to focus. High achievers always have a "Big Why".
In the current book I'm reading, The Unemployed Millionaire by Matt Morris
, Matt talks about how big dreamers inspire others to dream big. "When you get on fire, people will come from miles away to watch you burn!" Now that's a vision! And a truth…I don't know about you, but when I'm inspired by a leader…I want to spend time around them, whether reading their books, attending their seminar, seeing them speak…it's true…I'll go miles to see a leader I value "burn". I'm drawn to them, like a moth to a flame. Only with a better outcome!!
Matt calls these big dreams – BHAG…Big, Hairy Audacious Goals! He explains that it doesn't take any more energy to dream big than it does to dream small…go for the gusto…create a BHAG!! I love it!!
So…today I was working on MY BHAG – my Big, Hairy Audacious Goals…and it developed into a bucket list. I stumbled upon a very cool website to help track and share your BHAG/Dream/Bucket List. Check it out: shareBuckets
. You can join for free and create and share YOUR Dream List.
Let me know when you join – let's share Dreams! Be an inspiration! I challenge you to get 100 things on your list – Dream Big!
Blessings and peace,
See what Jan's doing…
