I love this concept. It feels hopeful and aspirational.
I don’t do this enough. I don’t count myself as a dreamer, but I encourage my children to do this. I want them to be the MLB Shortstop, the famous Fashion Designer, and world renowned Environmentalist. They have Gigantic dreams.
I will do everything I can in my power to help them reach those dreams. I tell myself I won’t be the parent who tells them they are unrealistic. I won’t be the parent to tell them they are far-fetched. I will not be the parent to tell them that their dream is out of reach. I have to keep telling myself this because as a parent it’s hard.
I have a career that has taught me to be pragmatic. I’ve seen the best and worst of people, sometimes all in the same day. When people ask me for career advice I give them the safe answer because I know the reality of life, their dreams are longshots and most people are not willing to come close to the effort they need to exert to reach their dreams.
So, I give them options I think they are willing to work for which are usually less than Gigantic.
Every day I have to consciously turn this off as I drive home. You see the reason we have dreams is that we have a belief that there is something more, something better. Dreams can be Gigantic and you reach them through Gigantic effort.
This is so true. Some careers train you to not go for what you really want and be “realistic”. But, I think many times we’re more capable than we know.
That’s fair..enuff..4me..hon..n We’re” “WELL-GUARDED”..FROM “OUR LIFE- STORM” Through Christ..Himself. Amen.
