15: UCYP – Whose Dream Is It?

Megan and Tim have an Uphill Conversation on dreams – why people have trouble identifying their dreams and determine if the dream you’re pursuing is truly your own.

Show Notes: 

  • 4 reasons people why people have trouble identifying their dreams
  • Comfort can be something that stops us from pursuing our dreams
  • Having courage and confidence to go after your dream
  • When someone else owns your dream v. you owning your dream
  • It can be difficult to realize that you aren’t where you’re meant to be; to change direction and to do it without fear
  • “Whatever you think, be sure it is what you think; whatever you want, be sure that it is what you want; whatever you feel, be sure that it is what you feel.” – T.S. Eliot
  • Steps to take ownership of your dreams:
    • Be willing to bet on yourself
    • Lead your life instead of accepting your life
    • Love what you do and do what you love
    • Don’t compare yourself or your dream to others
    • Believe in your vision for the future even when others don’t understand you
  • You need to make the right decisions and manage those decisions
  • Begin with the end in mind, be intentional
  • Allow yourself to shift
  • Just because you can do something, or that you’re good at something, doesn’t mean that it’s what your ultimately meant to do
  • You need both talent and passion to truly achieve your potential
  • “I can’t give you my passion, but I can show it to you.”
  • What someone else thinks about you is none of your business
  • If you need to daily talk others into your dream, it might be an indication that this relationship isn’t meant to be
  • No matter your age, you can still make the changes necessary to pursue your dream
