You know that other life, the one you ache to live? It follows you around waiting its turn, waiting for someday to finally get here.
You know that other life, the one you ache to live? It follows you around waiting its turn, waiting for someday to finally get here. It’s pushed aside by very important things, things you won’t remember in a week, let alone a year. Not living out your creative gifts, dreams and passions is comfortable, at first. There’s no possibility of failure, embarrassment or humiliation. You say things like, “Someday, I’m going to do what I’ve always dreamed of and it’s going to be amazing.” Then you go on doing things that get you no closer to the life you want to live. If you’re lucky, something awful happens, something so dramatic that you’re forced to grasp the reality of your mortality. You realize that this moment is all you really have, and how you use this moment is the only thing that can make your deepest desires real. It won’t be easy, convenient, or the right time. Others won’t understand, agree, or often support you. You’ll be all alone in the wilderness, and you’ll be okay. It will be your initiation. Join me for this very special episode and learn how to stop waiting and start living.

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma —which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.”—Steve Jobs
“. . . for the past 33 years I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself, ‘If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I’m about to do today.’
And whenever the answer has been, no for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.”—Steve Jobs
“Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything: all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure… these things just fall away in the face of death… leaving only what is truly important.”—Steve Jobs
