Why Dreaming Big Will Lead to Success in Business and Life

WITH Ryan Koral

Overview

When you dream about the future, you have a direction to set off on. There’s a goal to work towards. In this solo episode, I’m sharing what I’ve learned about setting big goals and how that helps you thrive in this business.

Key Takeaways

Goals can come in all sizes. Dream big and have a goal that may take years to realize. At the same time, create short-term tangible goals to keep you motivated along the way.

It’s Time to Dream Big

When you think about your video business, whether you’re new to it or not, I’m sure there’s something you wish were different. Perhaps you want to work fewer hours, make more passion projects, or save more money. It could be anything. But if you dreamed about your future lately, now is the time.

Creating A Roadmap Towards Your Dreams

It’s the dream and your goals that keep us motivated when life’s distractions get in the way. When you remember your greater purpose it becomes easier to remember why you are passionate about this work. Set yourself some short-term goals that will lead you toward your dream. Doing this will keep you motivated and show you just how close you are to achieving your dream.

Dealing With The Unexpected

There will be unexpected interruptions along the way. Things will happen that you just can’t plan for. Yet, when you have a plan directing you towards your goals, you won’t lose track of your ultimate destination. 

Overcoming obstacles also requires thinking with an abundance mindset. Don’t just strive to meet the bare minimum of survival. Set big goals that lead you to thrive. Then, when things inevitably go wrong, you’ll be better positioned to overcome them.

Quotes

3:07“When you dream about the future - when you set goals - you have a direction that you want to head into. Then, you can work backwards and think about how you want to get there.”
9:14“I do believe that something very powerful happens when you dream and when you believe in something and work towards it. I think it’s more likely to happen when you start verbalizing and writing down your dreams, goals, hopes, and desires."
