“At the end of the day, whether or not those people are comfortable with how you’re living your life doesn’t matter. What matters is whether you’re comfortable with it.”
– Dr. Phil McGraw
So, how about I love today’s quote. I could be somewhat biased as I am a pretty solid Dr. Phil fan. But, I would like to think that this quote would still speak to me, even if I weren’t.
I will go ahead and assume that Dr. Phil doesn’t mean those rare individuals who can be ok with being evil. I am sure he is referring to those folks that we all are and we all know. Those who, while we make mistakes from time to time, are generally good and respectable.
Big dreamers make some folks uncomfortable. Start turning those dreams into real accomplishment, the numbers may go up. Maybe this comes from the fact that risk takers unnerve people, and big dreamers are risk takers.
People who are uncomfortable can react with a “fight or flight” response. Typically, this will be directed at the big dreamer causing the discomfort.
Unfortunately, this abandonment or confrontation can cause the big dreamer to begin to question everything they know in their heart to be true. This doubt can disable momentum, zap enthusiasm, and weaken the resolve to not give up.
Are you a big dreamer? Let me encourage you today to keep going big! You have no doubt thought your plan through, accounted for missteps, and considered the cost. Are you good with that? Then move forward and be successful!
