No dream too big, no step too small

I created this little graphic to remind myself to dream big. For too long, I’ve been listening to that sour little voice whispering in my ear … don’t get your hopes up … it might not work out … you really think you can do that?

I don’t want to live like that.

Most of the time I can drown out the voice, be optimistic and forge ahead. The voice is only strong when I am weak, tired, worn down.

I belong to a group of artists in the Charlotte area concerned with improving our business and marketing skills. Last week at our meeting, my friend Nancy repeated this line, which she had heard at a conference, and its message really resonated with me: Think big, but work small. Begin. Take it step by step.

It is good to dream big.
