Think Big


Think big. Most people, in general, set there sights far too low. You can have a much bigger impact than you ever dreamed or thought possible. So why be one of the masses that throw a small pebble into a large pond, and barely makes a ripple. Why not instead, throw a boulder into a puddle and make a real splash!

One of Walt Disney’s most famous quotes is: "If you can dream it, you can do it." Walt had to overcome numerous obstacles to be able to create the Disney empire that has brought happiness to millions across the globe. Martin Luther King, Mother Teresa, Ghandi and Nelson Mandela all had dreams for a better world. But dreaming did not make them famous. They took action and I am not talking about small actions. Their passion and dedication to their causes did not just send ripples through the world; their actions sent waves of positive energy that inspired others to take action as well. All great change comes from a passionate pursuit of a cause greater than yourself.

I am lucky enough to work with the Life Changing Experiences Foundation in NSW. The founding director, Jessica Brown, is indeed a very inspirational person who has recently become a finalist in the prestigious 'Pride of Australia' awards. She made a decision a couple of years ago that she was going to make a powerful difference in the lives of disadvantaged teenage girls. Her dedication and devotion has seen the organisation become a huge success. Thank you to all those who attended this years brilliant Life Changing Ball - we raised $85,000 to help disadvantaged teenage girls break the cycle of destitution, abuse and neglect.

"Imagination is the beginning of creation." George Bernard Shaw

"Dream big and start small. Many people start small and stay small." Robert Kiyosaki (author of Rich Dad, Poor Dad)."

You would be surprised at what you can do if put your mind to it. Think big, take massive actions and life can be anything you want it to be.
