How do you know when you’re thinking too big? Do you have dreams that seem beyond your reach? Here's how to think it through:

Plan Big. The problem isn't that people think too big; it's that they fail to plan big. Dream as big as you want but don't fail to create a plan to get there. If you don't have action steps and deadlines in your calendar, you're just wishing and dreaming and not doing. Strategize, structure, work plan your goals and dreams. No goals, no growth.

Know the Worst Case Scenario isn't Likely. No great plan ever gets accomplished without struggle. But people often think the struggle will be worse than it will be. So, if you fail, what's the worst that can happen? People will judge you? They already do that. You'll be broke? You've been there before. You'll be sad? You've felt that before and moved through, too. Get over your fears and continue moving forward because life is also full of second chances. If obstacles come along, you will figure out a way to overcome them – you always have. You're always stronger than you think when you're fighting for a purpose.

Think team. Don't let your current circumstances or competencies limit your vision for the future. Other people can help you grow and progress. They can strengthen your weaknesses. Always think TEAM! You need support to achieve anything significant in life. Your dream is only too big if you haven’t enrolled anyone else in achieving it.

Develop your skill set. If you want to move forward with your dream, you must schedule your learning and growth. What is required to succeed at the next level? What do you need to know? Start learning. What do you need to be able to do? Start training. Create your own curriculum for learning and get it on the calendar.

Put these strategies into play. Live your dreams. Work for them. You'll be on your path to #theChargedLife.
