295: Goals Week - Making Sure Your Dreams Are Your Own


"The only way to live your best life is to make sure it's your life you are living" - Thom Walters

If you haven't done your homework for last night, creating your dreams list, don't worry.  You aren't in trouble.  Today's episode may make it easier for you as you do it.  For those who have done their homework then today's episode will serve as the first step to arriving at the most important dreams in the list.

Each of us at some point in our lives stray from our passions and desires.  We acquiesce to the wishes of others.  Today I want to talk about how to make sure that your dreams are truly your own and not the goals others have for you.  You can't lead a purposeful life if you are living someone else's life that they have created for you.

  • The three places you succumb to the wishes of others
