You know what is easy? To live a big life, with a big vision.

When you live for something that is truly inspiring, ginormous, magnificent, beautiful – your life becomes joy, adventure, a beautiful symphony.

Even the bad things that happen to you and the obstacles become a part of the orchestra.

You overcome the challenges, and it becomes part of your story, giving you power, strength and character.

Perfect is overrated. Imperfections overcome and dealt with are beautiful. Inspiring. It makes you unstoppable. Relentless.

I want to make justice universally accessible and take the law to the people. I want the highest quality legal education and insights to be accessible to every person in the world, instantly on demand. I am so passionate about it that sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night and can’t fall asleep again.

I don’t know what to do. I start making lists of things I need to do, what I want to do. I write down the ideas flowing through my head.

Illness can’t stop me, exhaustion can’t stop me, fake allegations and unfair personal attacks can’t demoralise me. Everything empowers me, fuels me and fires me up to get to my goals.

When you live your life from a big context, from a dream that inspires you, something that keeps you up at night, life seems full of possibilities and a non-stop joyride. You keep going no matter what.

And people come and join you on your joyride. A purpose like that is infectious. The burden is not yours because everyone wants a piece of the action. Have you ever experienced that?

You start the fire but it’s not yours. People come and grow it bigger. It’s so satisfying to see that happen.

Life is hard when you do not have such a vision. Life is hard when you play small. Life is hard when you are afraid of what the future holds, and play defensive. Life is hard when you are scared to embrace a big vision and want to grow in small increments only. Life is hard when you are scared to share your ideas, give away value and only think of small gains and losses.

It is hard to wrap your head around this. How can it be easier to achieve a massively huge goal rather than a small, achievable goal?

How can it be that you are more likely to achieve if you take up a big goal and inspiring mission rather than a small goal that looks more achievable on paper?

The reason is simple.

A small, uninspiring goal does not move you to take action. It does not inspire other people to join forces with you. It does not awaken the giant inside you.

Small goals do not align the stars in your favour.

Don’t make yourself small. Don’t insult the giant that you are and the infinite potential you hold inside by setting small goals and having an uninspiring vision for your life.

How big can you go?

Let go of logic. At the time of inventing a vision you don’t need to know or have the ability to make that vision come to reality. As one of my trainers who coached me in the area of communication used to say, “Logic is in the way of magic.”

The knowledge, skills and abilities will follow. First, you create the vision without worrying about how to and what is already possible.

What would that be for you?

Take 5 mins and write back to me with your big vision that you can give your life to.

My vision is to make law and justice available to every person in the world. I want to create online courses that help lawyers to become extraordinary and other professionals to use the law to create a competitive advantage for themselves. I want to be the best in the world at what I do.

Do check out it’s a work in progress, but we are at the cutting edge of legal research, education and innovation, and I will love to have your feedback on how we can take it to the next level.
