Bite An Elephant | dream big. act daily.
You know that feeling when you have been dreaming of doing something big and you just don’t know how to begin to make it a reality? It is that bizarre mix of EXCITEMENT (for what could be) + FEAR (of the unknown). When was the last time you moved beyond that feeling and that dream became reality? Then what happened? If you are like me, you enjoyed the moment and then looked around for what might be next…the cycle came again and you found yourself staring down your next dream, your “elephant”, with that electric and nauseating feeling.
Have you ever heard the quote: “How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time.” So often I see friends, coworkers, employees share a dream that they have and for one reason or another they never take steps to pursue it. Our culture needs these dreams to be realized. Action to be taken. Solutions to be created. That is where bite an elephant comes in.
You have found a place that will help you take that first bite…to think through the necessary steps…to inspire you to move forward toward realizing that dream every day…to encourage and be encouraged by others, and ultimately a place to connect with the resources to make that dream a reality.
A Bit About Elizabeth
I have wanted to live life to the fullest for about as long as I can remember. I’ve had big dreams and actively pursued them. When I was only 9, I saw an ad for a Disney World dancing audition. My mom, thinking it would be a good experience for me, supported the effort by taking me for the audition. There were hundreds of little girls with false eyelashes and fancy costumes, their “stage moms” busy with the curling irons, and ME – all decked out in black leotard, pink tights and my Dorothy Hamill haircut (basically it was a bowl cut for girls!). It was like Ed McMahon’s Star Search and I looked a little out of place. I made it to the final round for one of the parts – that of Christopher Robin in the Christmas Parade. They instructed me to do the routine beside a little boy (who had the same awesome haircut!). I was offered the part, had a wonderful time dancing in front of thousands that season and even was paid to return for the Easter Parade. I’m not sure who was affected more by the judge’s decision…me, a girl cast for the part of a boy or the little boy who lost to a girl! Regardless, that experience built my confidence and fueled my natural desire to Go – Do – Try – Risk – Learn. After all, you never know until you try!!
