Dare Dream Do: Remarkable Things Happen When You Dare to Dream

by Chrysula on March 5, 2012 in work life balance

If you’re lonely and scared then you’re probably on the right track.”

Whet your appetite for dreaming. And daring. And doing. A couple of weeks ago, I hosted Whitney Johnson in The Daily Thrive for our inaugural Ten Buck Talk.

I asked her about what she looks for in an idea, what makes it innovative and disruptive. We talked about getting over the bias against women when seeking capital and support for your great idea. Beyond business, we talked about why daring to dream is important and how we navigate accusations of selfishness, and silence our inner critics.

Favorite dreams, social media, and disruptive thoughts for personal innovation created an inspiring conversation. More than that, I came away feeling greater clarity and purpose, a sense of realignment with my path.

Since then, this truth from my talk with Whitney has been reinforced in my heart and brain. “Say yes to myself so I can say yes to you.”

One of my three driving values is generosity – to live a life of contribution. I cannot do that if my well is dry, if my lamp lacks oil. So I can give to you, I must take care of my own soul — the collective of my body and my spirit.

We talked venture capital and the economics of scale, of disruption and innovation, both personally and professionally. But most of all we talked about dreaming, daring and doing — for your soul’s sake.
