Recently I started asking myself this question, “WHAT WOULD I DO IF I KNEW I COULD NOT FAIL?” and the answers really surprised me.

It seemed that all the barriers I had built for myself were instantly removed. I felt free to dream…and dream big!

See, I think as we get older, we kinda stop dreaming. When we’re little, we wanna be a rockstar or a princess. As teens, we dream of driving a fancy car, dating the hottest guys, and being somebody important. In college, we dream of what our husband will look like and what we’ll name our kids. We dream of the important career we’ll have. Then, suddenly we graduate college or get married or have babies and then life gets busy and we forget that we can still have dreams. And we can still dream big.

So this week, I want you to encourage you to DARE TO DREAM…and dream BIG! Ask yourself this same question that I’ve been asking myself “What would you do if you knew you could not fail?” Your answers just might surprise you. Then don’t be afraid to pursue that wild n’ crazy dream. The only thing stopping you is YOU.

So what are YOUR answers to this question? I’d LOVE to hear your big dreams!
