19 Nov 300: DREAM THINK DO Revisited
Welcome to episode 300 of DREAM THINK DO! This is going to be a little like a party. We’re going to reminisce, tell some stories and celebrate. BUT I also want to get you some specific strategies we haven’t covered on any DREAM THINK DO episode before. (Because it wouldn’t be a DTD… if we didn’t get you something you could start to use immediately… right?) A conversation… you and me. Some stories. Some brand new strategies. This is going to be fun… so let’s get to this!

MORE ABOUT THE DREAM THINK DO EPISODE:
Thanks SO much for the emails and the messages. I sooooo appreciate you guys! I had planned to incorporate them into the show, but as I started to “DREAM” and “THINK” about the show… I started to reimagine it and the way it would go. So… it took a different direction. Just know that I’ll be getting back to each of you that sent emails and messages personally to say THANK YOU!!!
DREAM: 300 EPISODES
Our average length of the show is 40 minutes. So, over the years… that’s about 12,000 interviews, deep dives, stories, strategies, and fun! About 200 hours. About 5 years.
Lot’s of ups and downs, but as we’ll discuss in the episode, I’ve learned to:
“Begin. Hold loosely. Experiment. Cherish the FUN surprises as you go!”
THINK: SPECIFIC STRATEGY: LOVE, FEAR, the BIBLE, and the BRAIN:
I mention the scripture from 1 John 4:18a
“Such love has no fear, because perfect love expels all fear.”
We also talk about a specific strategy from Kyle Cease’s book… “The Illusion of Money.”
It’s something that is designed to help you to get comfortable with the unknown (and some of the things that scare you) and realize the opportunity within them.
Here’s Kyle talking about the strategy:
So it’s using the phrase “___________ and I love that.” to explore the present moment. ESPECIALLY if you’re experiencing fear in that present moment.
So… you can use it in some different ways. In the episode, I apply it to my Jeep Wrangler… as well as THIS episode.
A Quick Caveat:
If you’re in an abusive relationship or if you’re hurting yourself… THIS is not the strategy to use. Instead… get help. Reach out to me and my team… or to someone close to you that you trust. But seriously… get some help!
But for everyone else!!! Try it!
DO: THE POWER OF EXPERIMENTING
It’s not going to surprise you that we’re talking about the importance of EXPERIMENTING. It’s one of my favorite topics.
TWO QUICK IDEAS:
IDEA ONE: DON’T WAIT FOR PERFECTION
“Don’t wait until you can hit all home runs.
Focus on hitting singles and doubles consistently.
Get on base. Time and after time.
Learn the game.
Grow. Have fun.
And… in time… the home runs will come too!
It applies to winning baseball teams AND to pursuing your dreams!”
IDEA TWO: SHARE YOUR DREAM
Include a “PS” in your emails letting people know about one of your dreams or goals.
PS – One of my dreams is to ___________. If you know someone who could help me with this pursuit in a big or small way, please let me know. I would really appreciate it!
