An Action Plan for Dreamers is a weekly 20-minute podcast where we provide practical and actionable advice about what it takes to create the life you crave. It’s short enough to listen on your commute or coffee break and contains 3-5 practical steps you can take to move closer to your dream life.
Going after any big change requires stepping outside your comfort zone and learning to be a bit bolder. However, bold is a word we throw around without truly understanding the definition. To us, being bold means realizing you are scared but moving forward anyways. In this way boldness is different for each of us and does not require comparing your life and bold living to anyone but yourself. We discuss how to live more boldly and share some of the future plans we’re making that scare us.
In this episode, we’re joined by Tess Marshall of The Bold Life. Tess shares her insights for living a fearless life based on her experience as a fear-shattering, risk taker, author, blogger and courage coach. Tess delivers practical advice and shares her open experiences in her personal quest to help you to “Be Bold”. As you seek to become more bold as you go after the live you crave, check out Tess’ e-course, “Take Your Fear and Shove It: A Step by Step guide to Be Bold, Play Big and Shine Bright”.
Action Plan Take Aways:
- Get clarity on your vision. Write down exactly what you want to accomplish, be clear and specific. This creates a mental image or vision. Attach feelings to it. The ability to “feel” your dream will motivate and energize you. Now place yourself in your mental image.
- Create a strategy. Make a plan to close the gap from where you are now to where you want to be. How are you going to get there? If you want to a write a book. Choose a topic and a title. Have a plan to eliminate distractions. Be willing to call yourself a writer and an expert on your topic.
- Take action. Start now. The most important thing you can do is make time to write everyday. Period.
