If Your Dreams Don't Scare You, They're Not Big Enough - Guest Blogger

I'm always excited when I have an opportunity to shout out a guest blogger on Dr. Jacki's Blog.  Today I'm extremely excited because my guest is Bianca, my daughter.  Right now our family is busy preparing for her to leave the nest and move all the way to San Diego, California to attend graduate school.  To say I'm one proud mama is an under-statement.  I knew this day would come, I mean it couldn't help but to come, because she is her mother's daughter.  She has inherited my genes in terms of being a BIG DREAM chaser, and although my motherly instincts tell me that she's too young to leave home (yeah right), I couldn't be more proud that she is taking this leap.

So for those of you who may need a little extra inspiration in terms of chasing your dreams, let me introduce you to Bianca.  Here's her story...

 


Have you ever thought about doing something new, fun, YOUnique, and then you thought to yourself, "Naw, I could never do that".  Well did you know that every single idea of yours can come true, if you want it to?  If you have a dream, know that dreams can come true, it CAN happen. 

My friends and I believe in taking calculated risks.  We take it literally.  Right now several of my recent college graduate friends are literally packing bags to travel/relocate/see the world, and that's my message to you.  PACK YOUR BAGS AND GO FOR IT! 

Surround yourself with people who also want to GO FOR IT and you will find your motivation.  Make sure that the people you connect with have great ambition.  Like I always say, when you feel like you can't go on, keep going, because if you don't follow YOUR dreams then someone else will hire you to build theirs.

So since my friends and I have decided that our dreams are worth pursuing, we are striking out, moving to different parts of the world, in and outside of the United States.  I have a friend who is moving to Malaysia, another friend of mine is moving to Atlanta, I have another friend who is moving to Los Angeles, and I am moving to San Diego to begin my graduate studies in Global Management.  My dream is to follow in my mom's footsteps and own my own business on a global scale.

You can do it too.  What ever you have been wanting or wishing to do, wake up and chase it.  I'm awake now, and I'm not going back to sleep.  I hope this blog inspires someone to wake up and chase their dreams too.
