Make Your Dreams Bigger Than You
Having a dream life, where you get to travel, spend time with your family, and work in a fulfilling career is fabulous. But is it enough?
Whilst there’s nothing wrong with wanting the best for yourself and your family, if that’s all there is to it, the truth is you’re not reaching your potential. We live in a beautiful but incredibly broken world. There are people everywhere suffering pain, injustice, poverty, mental illness, grief, the list goes on. There are people out there who need you, people that may not be helped if not by YOU.
There are people out there who need you, people that may not be helped if not by YOU.
We are all meant to be making the world better in someway or another, and if that isn’t part of your dream, then have a think about it. Why isn’t it? Is it because you’ve been dreaming too small? It is because you’ve been too busy focusing on your own needs? Maybe you just don’t think you’re capable of helping anyone? Whatever the reason, work through it, because it’s not legit. Every single person is capable of helping others and making the world a bit better.
If making the world better isn’t part of your dream, or you’re just not sure where to start, then here’s some questions to ask yourself that should help point you in the right direction:
Is there a cause that you’re particularly passionate about?
Has there been a time in your life that has been really, really hard?
At your lowest point, what would the perfect help have been?
What skills, talents and means do you have, and how could you use these to make the world better?
We can’t do everything, but each of us can do something. So whatever you’re dream, make it bigger than you.
