My goals are not too big, actually maybe I should go even bigger!
In recent months, I’ve had multiple people tell me that my goals were too big. At first, I started thinking “maybe they are right”, why would 3 different people in a short span of time, actually say that to me. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Then I started thinking, “Fuck that”, my goals are not too big, and actually, maybe I should go even bigger! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Then it occurred to me that these people may have said these things because THEIR goals were too SMALL. And they couldn’t see my vision and how I planned to get there from where I currently am. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And that’s fine, because it’s not THEIR vision, it’s mine. And I know what I am capable of, and maybe my ideals of how quick it can happen might be delusional to the normal person. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But here’s the thing… I don’t actually HAVE to know HOW. I just have to stay focused on the vision and take the actions that are in alignment with moving towards that vision. ⠀⠀⠀
AND I don’t have to pre-determine when it will happen, I just have to BE daily, that person who achieves it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And truth be told, I’d rather be ‘ridiculous’ and successful than ‘reasonable’ and stuck. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It’s my ridiculousness and my delusion that has gotten me here in the first place. I mean, come-on: an introverted, single mom, from a small town of 2,000 people, once broken and confused, completely turns her life around in a matter of a few short years…
1) I had a vision, a vision that only I could see.
2) I made a decision, a decision to go after it- even though it seemed absurd,
3) I had determination, a determination so strong that even when it looked like things wouldn’t work, I kept going
4) Point blank - I am fucking crazy! (at least to the “normal” ones) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So if you’re feeling “alright”, super comfy and people around you are patting you on the back saying, “yeah, that’s awesome. I can totally see that for you”… then chances are you are playing TOO SMALL, TOO SAFE, TOO NORMAL. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And When you play it safe you fall flat. - 8 minutes ago
