Fund Your Dreams with the right mindset before you focus on anything else
For the truly ambitious and creative, We Do Hard Things shares untold stories and the lessons learned from those who have faced fears, taken big risks, and chased down dreams. I recently had the opportunity to join Mark Drager on the We Do Hard Things Podcast. Mark’s mission is simple, to give you hope. A hope rooted in a belief that you can start your next big thing, no matter your past. That you can regain control, no matter what life throws at you. That true happiness comes from pursuing your passions at all costs, no matter how uncertain or scary it feels.
Mark and I had the chance to talk about why people need help managing money, how successful people think, and why money is key to financing your dreams. We also took some time to discuss my book Freedom Street: How I Learned to Create a Rich Life, Live My Legacy, and Own the Future as a Financial Advisor.
“Worry is praying for what you don’t want”
Worrying is praying for what you don’t want, when you do that you’re just visualizing negative results. People like Michael Phelps, Michael Jordan, and Steve Jobs did not spend their time thinking about how bad things could go. They spent their time visualizing success, not sitting in fear and worry. The more time you spend in fear and worry, the less time you spend doing anything that actually matters. You have to fund your dreams with the right energy and attitude, instead of focusing on funding your dreams with money.
Mark and I’s conversation in this episode can help anyone who is looking to level up and reach their dreams, whether it’s in life or in business. If you are looking for some help along the way, I encourage you to check our resources page. There you can find the exact “Four Quadrants” sheet that I use to help me in my life. I also encourage you to check out my YouTube channel, there are many videos there that cover this exact topic.
