#1786 Dream BIG!

WOOP It and Pay the Price

In our last several +1s, we’ve been spending some time with Coach Prime and his new book, Elevate and Dominate.

As you may recall, we started with some questions, then we talked about what to do in the face of obstacles, then we talked about Deion’s #1 tip for success (hint: DISCIPLINE!), then we talked about the importance of having a clear vision (while throwing in some Dumb and Dumber wisdom for the bonus points win!).

Today we’re going to talk about the importance of dreaming and DREAMING BIG.

Let’s get straight to work.

Coach Prime tells us: “I love to dream. Now hear me: Dreams aren’t some fairy-tale, make-believe nonsense. Dreams are what FUEL us, what INSPIRE us, what make us STRIVE FOR GREATNESS. So please, by all means, DREAM! But don’t go dreaming AVERAGE. If your DREAM ISN’T BIGGER THAN YOU, there’s a PROBLEM with your dream.”

He continues by saying: “There’s no dream too big, too wild, too crazy to achieve. And I’m not just talking about becoming a superstar athlete. No, I’m talking about whatever your heart desires, whether it’s building your own business, becoming a musician, or even taking a trip to every cool place you’ve ever imagined in this great big world.”

And: “You want to be a doctor? A teacher? An artist? You want to be a parent who raises their kids right? You can do it! You just need to have that dream, that passion, that determination.

Don’t be afraid to dream BIG y’all. There’s no limit to what you can achieve if you put your mind to it. Look at what we’re doing with technology these days. I mean, who would’ve thought all our modern conveniences were even possible back in the day? But somebody had that dream, that vision, and they made it happen.”

And, finally: “See what I’m saying? You MAKE your dreams happen, too. Don’t ever give up on them. And don’t you doubt what you can achieve. Life is too short to settle for mediocrity. So go all in and chase that dream until it becomes a reality.”

That’s from a chapter appropriately called “Dream Big!”

As we discussed, Arnold’s first “Tool for Life” was to “HAVE A CLEAR VISION.”

You know what his second tool is? “NEVER THINK SMALL.”

(He and Coach Prime must be Soul brothers, eh?)

Ralph Waldo Emerson comes to mind as well.

He once wrote: “There’s nothing capricious in nature, and the implanting of a desire indicates that its gratification is in the constitution of the creature that feels it.”

Ralph Waldo also tells us: “Our desires presage the capacities within us; they are harbingers of what we shall be able to accomplish. What we can do and want to do is projected in our imagination, quite outside ourselves, and into the future. We are attracted to what is already ours in secret. Thus passionate anticipation transforms what is indeed possible into dreamt-for reality.”

And: “Do that which is assigned to you, and you cannot hope too much or dare too much.”

That’s Today’s +1.


Then rub that big dream up against reality as you WOOP it.
