Show You How to Create the Life You Crave
It is good to know that 67% percent of people actively want to change their lives, but sad that only 8% manage to do it [Source: University of Scranton. Journal of Clinical Psychology]. With these numbers, it is not surprising that hospice workers report the #1 deathbed regret is not having followed dreams.
Authors Warren and Betsy Talbot know the biggest issue holding people back is simply not knowing where to start. What people want is an action plan to get from the life they have today to the dream lifestyle they desire. The Talbots provide this action plan in their books, videos, website, and weekly Inner Circle emails.
Warren and Betsy know from experience how overwhelming it can be to create big change. Like most people, they worked and followed the rules, planning to follow their dreams later in life. But when devastating illnesses hit close to home in 2008, they took matters into their own hands and sped up their timeline to happiness.
They asked themselves the question: “If you knew you wouldn’t make it to your next big birthday, how would you change your life right now?” This is what spurred them to follow their dream of world travel. Over the next 25 months, they sold everything they owned, saved a bundle of money, and revamped their lifestyle, attitudes, and relationships to make their dream a reality. They have been traveling the world since 2010, living a life better than they ever imagined.
All along the way they documented their transformation on the website Married with Luggage, which has become a destination for personal growth seekers with dreams of every type. Thousands of readers have asked questions about achieving large and small goals and shared their dreams and stories. This feedback, along with their personal experience, has given Warren and Betsy a unique insight into the current state of happiness and why people are so frustrated with their lives.
They often say, “Scheming and dreaming will only fill your mind. Taking action will fill your life.” It is this kind of no-nonsense, practical approach that has won them a devoted following of their website and books. The Talbots are the authors of Dream Save Do: An Action Plan for Dreamers, Getting Rid of It: Eliminate the Clutter in Your Life, and Strip Off Your Fear: Slip Into Something More Confident.
They believe in 3 truths to achieving your dreams: 1) Action trumps analysis, 2) Small, consistent actions are more effective than big steps, and 3) Your mindset can make or break your dream.
This action-oriented approach has garnered them press in financial, personal growth, lifestyle, fitness, and travel outlets like: ABCNews.com, Kiplinger’s Personal Finance, The Christian Science Monitor, International Living, Woman’s World, MensFitness.com, and Femme Finance Radio. Their chemistry and outgoing personalities make them frequent guests on radio shows and podcasts, and they contribute articles to major websites like LearnVest.com and Copyblogger.com.
In 2013 the Talbots created a podcast called An Action Plan for Dreamers with interviews, advice, and tips on moving closer to your dream lifestyle. They are big proponents of small frequent actions, and the show is yet another avenue to teach people how effective the smallest actions can be in their lives.
“Change might seem hard, but change is also what takes you from where you are now to where you want to be.” Warren and Betsy say. “We can show you the way, but you have to take the first step.”
