An Action Plan for Dreamers is a weekly 20-minute podcast where we provide practical and actionable advice about what it takes to create the life you crave. It’s short enough to listen on your commute or coffee break, but long enough to contain 3-5 practical steps you can take to make your dream life a little bit closer.

Thanks to Russ Kiel who performs our theme song every week. We sound better because of his tune.
Being brave does not require you to don tights and a cape (though if you do please send pictures). Instead, bravery is something we all possess when we step outside our comfort zones and push ourselves to try something new. In this podcast we talk about bravery how to give yourself permission to go after what you want most in life.
We are excited to be joined by best-selling author and superhero Chris Brogan. We discuss the concept of “borrowing bravery” from those around us and learning to go forward in spite of our fears. Chris provides his insights into how Confidence, Acceptance, Permission and Execution (CAPE) can help move you to taking action towards your dreams.
Chris’ book, It’s Not About the Tights, provides insights into how you can be more brave in your life. When Chris is not out fighting crime in his mask and cape, he can be found online at ChrisBrogan.com.
This is a fantastic discussion and we look forward to your thoughts in the comments below.
In the podcast Chris refers to the following quotation which we believe sums up great advice for us all: “I rarely asked for permission. I just acted on the theory that my bosses had authorized me to do so in their behalf. They wanted me to take care of things without being nagged.” – from Captain D. Michael Abrashoff’s book It’s Your Ship.
Action Plan Take Aways:
- Agree that you are going to be the author of your life and accept the life you have
- Untangle from the praise and criticism of others
- Give yourself permission
