Did y’all have your Powerball winnings all planned out last week? I’m not going to lie – we did.
In our minds, we had already built a fence and put in a pool. Then JC decided we were going to move but stay in the same neighborhood. He joked and said we would just “move to the back road” (that’s where all the big houses are). I had plans of giving money to both Compassion and to the Koinonia Ministries in Belize. They both have such a big piece of my heart.
But as far as new stuff, I had just planned to buy a new MacBook Pro, pay off our vehicles, and get my eyebrows waxed. Ya’ know, simple stuff. Ha!
Needless to say, we still have car notes, and I’m still rocking along typing on my Toshiba. (for which I am very grateful!) But it’s fun to dream, though, isn’t it?
“Dreaming, after all, is a form of planning.” ~Gloria Steinem
I believe the world needs more dreamers. More creative people.
Granted, my dad probably thinks some of my ideas are far-fetched at times and that I have my head in the clouds. But I believe the world needs more people who dream big and get lost in the world of possibilities because that is where the big ideas are formed. That is where the next big thing is created.
It’s for sure not going to be found thinking small and living with doubt and believing “that could never happen.”
Steve Jobs didn’t think small while he was designing the Apple I. He was a dreamer. Many thought of him as a “hippie” – but he stayed true to whom he was regardless of how many critics he had.
He kept dreaming.
Just remember – the key to success isn’t dreaming.
It’s taking action.
