Lack of goals leads to a lack of achievement; what's your big dream, and why aren't you pursuing it?

What's Your Big Dream?

Think back to when you were a little kid. Did you have something you really wanted - like I mean - REALLY WANTED for Christmas?

For me - it was the Big Barbie Camper.

For those of you who have no idea of what I am talking about - this was the Cadillac of all Barbie products - the huge RV camper that had everything in it - stickers for the outside - unbelievable.

I drooled over the catalogue pages. Dog-eared the section with all the Barbie stuff. Pored over all the amazing features of The Big Barbie Camper.

It was a camper that actually moved, with real wheels and a steering wheel, an awning, table and bench inside - what more did an 8 year old girl need? I had visions of Ken and Barbie driving their massive RV all over our basement floor.

It was also $75 and there was no way my parents would have spent that amount on one gift.

What did I get instead? A fuzzy, white bathrobe and a "spanky" collection of Anne of Green Gables books.

I have never forgotten how much I wanted that Big Barbie Camper. And even though I didn't get it - I still believe in having Big Barbie Camper dreams.

What is a Big Barbie Camper Dream anyway?
Well - in business and in life, if you allow yourself to settle for second best I guarantee that is exactly what you will receive.

Every woman needs a big dream - the kind that seems impossible at first. But the more you think about it, dream about it, talk about it - it starts to feel real.

You need a Big Barbie Camper dream for your business.
You want to make more money/have more success/create more fabulous customer relationships? Well then - you are going to have to quit playing it so safe.

The world does not reward those who have dreams the size of marbles. You have to move into the Big Barbie Camper world of dreams.

Consider this:

  • What would you do with your business if time, money and energy were not an issue?
  • What is an idea that has been "stewing" in the back of your mind?
  • What challenge excites you every time you think about it?
  • What customer would you love to have?
  • What project would you give up your anti-wrinkle cream for?
  • What scares the hell out of you besides spiders and turning into a bag-lady?
If you are honest with yourself - you will discover that you have been holding yourself back from success.

Lack of goals leads to lack of achievement. A reluctance to take calculated risk also leads to lack of achievement. Why? Because you get so hung up on the day to day details of your business, you forget about the Big Barbie Camper vision.

So - do yourself a BIG FAVOR and let go of the excuses. I Diva Dare you to get your butt in gear and dedicate a potion of each week - even if it is only 1 hour - to get your Big Barbie Camper dream on the road.

I'll see you there!
