Blah, blah, blah.
Dream big dreams. Follow your passion. Change the world.
How can you possibly achieve anything without a courageous, reckless, impossible dream?
But what if you don’t have a dream? Or it’s not audacious enough?
Are you a hopeless failure?
Destined to mediocrity and insignificance?
In today’s culture, it’s as if you are flawed if you don’t have a big dream.
Even Indiana Jones didn’t start his career searching for the Lost Ark.
But how do you thrive without a big dream?
Very few people start with the clarity of a big dream.
We like to think of the world as a stable place. Where we have a big dream, make a plan and follow a set road to a destination. It feels safe to think that way.
But even the most carefully laid plans can go wrong.
And it’s bloody hard to pursue a dream when you’re worried about putting food on the table or a roof over your head.
Sometimes it starts with surviving.
