Dream One Size Bigger

Happy New Year! 2016 has arrived and I hope everyone is ready for what the new year will bring.

  • Have you thought about your goals?
  • Have you written them down?
  • What will you do differently this year than last?

I've been reading  "How Successful People Think" by John C. Maxwell and wanted to share an excerpt from the book with you:

One of the best ways to cultivate a possibility mind-set is to prompt yourself to dream one size bigger than you normally do. Let's face it: most people dream too small. They don't think big enough. Henry Curtis advises, "Make your plans as fantastic as you like, because twenty-five years from now, they will seem mediocre. Make your plans ten times as great as you first planned, and twenty-five years from now you will wonder why you did not make them fifty times as great."

If you push yourself to dream more expansively, to imagine your organization one size bigger, to make your goals at least a step beyond what makes you comfortable, you will be forced to grow. And it will set you up to believe in greater possibilities.

Until next time, continued success!
