"If your dreams don't scare you, they're not big enough."
This quote tells me:
It's okay to be terrified of success
There's nothing wrong with going for BIG
In fact, maybe going for BIG is what we're all meant to do
We all have different ways of going for BIG. A lot of you reading this blog are writers and there are certain scary aspects of writing success (at least for me!)--
1) Launch parties
2) School visits
4) Balancing acts
Just to name a few....
But that's how it is with every BIG endeavor. We wonder if once we "make it" we'll be able to rise to the challenge.
It takes faith. And guts.
Just like anything worthwhile.
Think of people who run marathons, foster children, start foundations, get married, go on crusades for good causes, go back to school, fight legal battles in the name of justice, pursue ridiculous dreams, make other people's dreams come true, start new jobs, move to foreign countries....
We all have our own ways of living BIG, and we were meant to live BIG, to hatch dreams more brilliant than we could ever imagine.
What's your dream?
And does it terrify you?
