The most inspiring people in the world started with a dream that a lot of other people thought wasn't possible. By setting their minds to something and working hard, they proved that their dream was achievable. Dream big and be what you want to be.
Why It Is Good to Dream Big
To have an end in sight, you need to dream big! There’s a famous quote that states ‘you can’t be what you can’t see’ – Marian White Elderman. Sports psychologist have football players visualise their game from beginning to end with them winning the game. If you can see your future, you have a greater chance of realising it.Visualise what YOU want to be.
My book encourages kids to dream big and not to limit their dreams. Did you know you can be more than one thing? You could be a lawyer and a pilot, all you have to do is dream big and try it.
I lead by example for my kids. I’m a mum of three, and work full time for the Air Force, and supervise students part time online at two universities. Not only am I busy with work, but I’m learning to fly and aim to continue obtaining various licenses, studying a PhD and volunteer on two aviation boards. On the weekends its quality time with my kids. They love being active, playing various sports and driving around experiencing new places we haven’t been to before. My eldest says he wants to be a professional basketball player and marine biologist, where my middle child wants to be an engineer and pilot. My daughter is only 4, but already loves the idea of being a pilot and a ballerina. I’m sure their minds will change a hundred times between now and when they’re older. I don’t mind what they want to be, I just hope they have a passion.
About the author:
Danni Maynard grew up dreaming big and wanting to break the stereotype of what women were 'meant' to be. She is a lecturer in aviation, a pilot and is working towards her doctorate in, you guessed it, aviation. Danni is still dreaming and has turned her attention to encouraging young minds of today to dream along with her. She is a strong believer in supporting kids to pursue their passions no matter what the world tells them they can or cannot do.
She brings this passion to her daily life as a mother of three amazing children who are constantly reminded that they are allowed to imagine a life that encompasses fantasies, aspirations and ambitions. This attitude to life was shaped by her mum, who is a powerful and supportive role model in Danni's life and sculpted her to be an independent and strong-minded thinker. Danni also dedicates time to Women in Aviation – Australian Chapter to educate and inspire young girls about the fascinating industry that is aviation and the opportunities it presents to women.
