Do you have a big dream? One that thrills you and – if you’re honest – even scares you? We all need one! Go after your dream with these inspiring adventure quotes (that are not quite safe).
Dreams are good. They’re an invitation to the imagination to envision a better tomorrow. In fact, the only thing better than a dream is a plan to turn it into your reality!
But what do you do when your dream seems like it will never come true? Or when the day-to-day work of reaching your goal threatens to make you give up entirely?
Make Your Dream a Goal
Remember why you chose this dream in the first place.
Why are you working so hard to change your future? Is it for your children? Your own happiness? Financial security? All of the above? Write it down! Post it where you will see it EVERY DAY. You are worth this dream.
Make a plan, set a deadline, and get to it.
If you haven’t turned your dream into a goal by writing down a plan, do that today! Don’t make it complicated; just think through the big steps you’ll need to take to get from dream to done.
If you have a plan, review it. Your plan will need tweaking a few times on your journey. Don’t be afraid to adjust!
Share it with someone
Want to increase your chances of reaching your dream? Share it with someone. The simple act of writing down your goal and telling someone else about it will make you far more likely to actually get it done. Pick a friend, a blogging buddy, a sister (by blood or choice!) and share your big dream with each other. Congrats! You now have a built-in cheerleader.

This is inspiration with a bit of whimsy. Here’s to creativity, adventure, and dreams worth making into reality!
Fair warning: may produce feelings of determination that lead to plans, action, and inevitable positive changes in your near future.
