The internet at my place is down and has been down for almost 2 days now. For any online entrepreneur, that has been no fun. But this is too important,
I wanted you to be the first ones to hear about a new announcement as I mentioned in one of my last emails, but today is about dreaming BIG.
Let me give some context here.
I found out over the weekend, but our show. This exact show that you are listening right now.
My voice. Exactly where you are sitting or standing right now. We made it.
We just got nominated as from the People's Choice Podcast Awards as a top 10 business podcast for 2016.
That’s pretty crazy, right?
The first thought that hit me was WOW as if something like this happened. But then I thought, of course. This is what happens when you dare to dream big.
When you dare to status quo and when you dare to choose adventure in your life.
I didn’t know too much about the podcasting world 10 months ago. I didn’t do a course or join a community. Looking back, that’s probably what I should have done. But honestly, I wasn’t in the right frame of mind.
I just couldn't take it anymore. I wanted to get clarity on a message stuck in me and I couldn’t figure out how to do it.
I was trying to build an online business and failing fast. Losing cash every single month. It wasn’t pretty.
It didn’t really matter to me, though, I knew I had this message and if I figure out how to get it out to the world, it has the potential to be apart of my life forever.
It sounds drastic and crazy looking back, but that’s the truth. I simply wanted to build a life and business creating an impact to the world.
It’s like what Connor Beaton from ManTalks was talking about in our last interview. You have to have a vision and be daring enough to dream big.
Here is the thing, though, IF you were starting out just as I was, you do not need to have absolute clarity. You need to simply start.
Clarity is important to have, but more than anything, inaction is often times the killer of dreams.
It’s not as important to have absolute clarity when you are just doing it. You just need to do something that you are drawn to and you can see yourself getting better at, and you can see how it potentially can deliver astronomical value to people's lives.
That’s literally it. No need to complicate it.
There was an episode it did with Joe Rios who has run a marathon on 5 out of the 7 continents in the world. He talked about something called a BHAG.
BHAG stands for Big Hairy Audacious Goal. What's your BHAG?
His was to run a marathon on every continent and raise funds for causes he cares about.
Mine is to create content whether it is speeches, videos, podcasts, books, that will move the needle for people and inspire them to share their stories with the world.
What’s your BHAG?
What's your big hairy audacious goal?
What’s your vision for where you want to go?
You need to stop listening to those voices in your head about you not deserving or not good enough or whatever else bullshit you sell yourself so you don’t pursue your dream.
You need to listen to that voice in your heart. The one that says maybe, just maybe you can do it.
But only if you are crazy enough to dream big. To go beyond your results and circumstances of today so that you can be the person you need to be tomorrow.
I am forever grateful to be on this journey with you all. To be documenting in real time my exact responses and emotions.
I am literally overwhelmed with gratitude, even as I am recording this.
