14 Jan 306: The Year to Launch 1 Million Dreams
We’re kicking off 2021 with a bold and audacious goal. It’s to launch 1 million dreams in one year! I know… I know. That might sound crazy… especially following all the wildness of 2020 and the first few weeks of 2021. BUT it feels like it’s needed now… more than ever! That’s right! We need a shared goal. Something to focus on.
Something that could bring a much-needed injection of good, connection, and collaboration into this world! In this episode, we talk about the genesis of the idea, who should join in and some strategies to get started!
It’s a crazy weird dream… but hey… it’s usually those types of dreams that change the world for the better… right? And make life a lot more fun too. So… let’s do this!

“Sometimes our setbacks are SETUPS for something better!”
CALL TO ACTION:
PART 1: Give yourself permission to DREAM.
- Get clear on a few new goals or dreams for this year.
- Consider Dreaming in “Categories”
- Do the following categories make you think of new and different dreams?
- Career, Education, Travel, Service, Media and Entertainment, Spiritual, Health & Fitness, Family and Relationships, Financial and Real Estate… AND Dreams that Defy Categorization.
- SPECIFIC: Write down at least 1 to 3 dreams
PART 2: Invite someone to DREAM with you!
- Dreaming together is a LOT more fun.
- So invite someone to listen to this episode… and then dream together.
- Set up a phone call or a zoom call to talk about some dreams (big or small) you might want to pursue in the coming days. NOTE: Don’t worry about whether they’re “big” or “small.” If they matter to you… they’re important!
- Then, encourage each other! The encouragement can come in the form of:
- Just listening (because someone really listening can be pretty rare these days)
- Encouragement (let them know you’re excited for them and the dream)
- Connections, suggestions, and ideas (Don’t worry! You don’t have to have all the answers, but if you do have something that might help the person… offer it!)
- that’s pretty rare
Don’t invite your grumpy uncle!!! (NOT YET… at least.)
Invite that crazy cool friend of yours… the one who’s just the right amount of crazy. Just like you.
Have ’em listen to the episode… and then set a time to connect.
Then talk about what you might want to go after this year!
Let’s get ready to make 2021 our biggest and best year yet… NO MATTER WHAT!!!

Lets Go!!! The world needs dreamers and doers. I am a high school counselor and we have started West High Big Dreamers to encourage our students to Dream Big and Live Big
