What Do You Really Want? Big Dreams 101

Have you ever sat down and asked yourself what do you really want? Do you know what you BIG DREAMS are?

If you have, were your answers something like, I want to be wealthy, I want a second home, I want to be famous, I want to be fit and skinny?

Those are easy goals to talk about, but what do they really mean?

You may be asking how do you achieve them but what you should really be asking is why should I achieve them? Are they aligned with my big dream?

I like to dive deeper into my goals to see what it is I’m REALLY after which is the BIG DREAM of the OUTCOME of all of my goals.

Examples:

I want to be wealthy. Why? What would you do differently if you were wealthy? How would you live differently? How does being wealthy help you reach your big dream?

I want to be fit and skinny. Why? What would you do differently if you were ALREADY fit and skinny. How would your life be changed?

This is such a great exercise to challenge yourself to dive deeper and see what your goals really are and if they are aligned with the actual OUTCOME or BIG DREAM you have.

Sometimes we create goals for ourselves that have nothing to do with our outcomes. These goals can waste time, energy, and money and even veer us off the path (out of alignment) toward our big dreams.

Two strategies that may help you stay on track are:

Working Backwards: Working backwards means you figure out your Big Dreams first and then figure out the goals (steps) you need to take to get there.

Use Your Filter: To create a filter by which you can measure your goals you have to figure out what your Big Dream is for your life. The ask yourself if the actions you are taking lead you to that dream.

Whatever strategy you choose you will absolutely reach your outcome faster if you are in alignment and living your purpose!

One thing to note is that your Big Dream or Outcome will never come true if it’s out of alignment with your core values. So if you have no idea what you core values are that may be something you want to wrestle with first.

This is a great exercise to do not only for your personal life but your business as well. So go ahead and get started today going for your BIG DREAMS!

  1. I think it is an excellent point to make about whether we have considered the outcomes of our goals. More money may be beneficial in many ways, but it also carries new responsibilities. We need to carefully consider our goals, not the goals we think we should have. And yes, your core values are critical!
