Are Your Big Dreams Keeping You Stuck?

There is a lot of material written by coaches and healers about going for your big dream. Live your best life, live your biggest life.

I found that this question doesn’t help me or my clients. It pushes many people into being judgmental about their life. Do you remember the commercial, where an older woman says, “I don’t want to run a marathon, I just want to be able to give my grandson a bath.”

Relief from pain may be her initial motivation but what she really wants is a close relationship with her grandchild. However, relief from pain may give her the space to question how she can improve her body’s over all flexibility. She may then be interested in yoga or tai chi.

I think rather than ask, “What is your big dream?” which can easily be derailed into thoughts of what it might look like, ask “What are the qualities you want in your life?”

“How do you want to feel or be?”  For example: for myself I want peace — peace of mind, peace in my body, peace in different situations, peaceful interactions. And if peace is not possible, acceptance of what is, allowing what is by not resisting.

Often, when you feel stuck or overwhelmed you cannot see the next step.
