Why Small Choices Derail Big Dreams

What big dreams do you have? Or, should I ask, what big dreams did you have when you were young?

Me? I longed to become a video game designer. I wanted to design the next Final Fantasy game.

But I didn’t. Instead, I took a few college courses and began working. And then continued working and pursuing other passions.

Small choices determine the course of our lives

From the outside, one could think it was the big things which derailed my passion of designing video games. Thinking this would be incorrect.

What really derailed my passions were the small choices. The small choices I made and didn’t make.

Why Small Choices Are So Important

Our small choices are what really guide our day-to-day actions. They’re what we’re doing to create our lives.

And, because of this, we easily overlook what guides us to our dreams.

I grew up in an extremely Disney-loving family. If his movies and his parks are any indications of the man himself, Walt Disney was a true leader- he wanted everyone to find their happiness. As a rather odd girl who loves books and never quite fit in.

leadership lessons and quotes from Beauty And The Beast

As a rather odd girl who loves books and never quite fit in, Beauty and the Beast has always been my favorite, and I looked to Belle for leadership as a child. I was ecstatic to find that the new live-action rendition offers even more leadership lessons, not just to girls like Belle and I, but to anyone willing to watch.

These are lessons that we all can learn from and although I’m writing it from a female’s perspective, the lessons can generally be used by both male and female. I’ll start off with some quotes.
