In college, I started a small Etsy shop and blog from the storage closet in my sorority house. A few years later, and through a very non-linear journey, that small Etsy shop grew into an internationally recognized sweatshirt brand & that little blog led to bestselling books and a publishing career. Now, I'm obsessed about helping other women uncover what they're made to do and take steps to make it happen, too.
I think we can all agree on one thing: 2020 has been a tough year especially to dream big.
Culturally, socially, economically, and personally, we’ve all experienced unexpected challenges — and have had to learn how to navigate what many call “a new normal.”
While perseverance and trials are a part of life, a very important question so many are wondering but so few are asking is, “What about my dreams?”
When life throws us a curveball, or multiple curve balls, and totally knocks us down, how do we keep dreaming? How do we keep pursuing our dreams? Should we even try?
How to Keep Dreaming Big
In this episode of SHE, I had the honor of talking with Bob Goff, a Disneyland office resident, recovering lawyer, New York Times Bestselling Author, Nonprofit founder, Chief Balloon Inflator, and Motivational Speaker to help us tackle this big, important question as we all learn what it looks like to thrive both in and after hard seasons.
As we talked, and as I asked him some tough questions, Bob shares truths and tools from his new book, Dream Big.
Both in this episode, and through his book, he’s taking us on a journey to rediscover our dreams and turn them into reality. Based on his popular Dream Big Workshop, Bob draws on a lifetime of living and reaming large to help you reach your larger than life dreams.
Tune in to learn how to:
Quit letting fear call the shots and get back to building the rocket ship that was supposed to be your life
Clearly define your dreams for yourself
Identify the obstacles holding you back
Come up with a specific plan for reaching goals and develop the tools that will help you act on the plan
One of my favorite quotes from Bob?
“I don’t think we lose our zest for life. We lose our imagination.”
Isn’t that the truth?! I know through my own hardships this year, it’s been hard to hold onto imagination, whimsy, and creativity.
However, just because it’s hard doesn’t mean it’s impossible and I’m learning how to hold onto my dreams alongside of you.
If you’re ready to learn how to imagine, dream, and tackle those dreams again, don’t skip this one!
