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.

The least questioned assumptions are often the most questionable.” ~ Paul Broca
You are likely holding on to unproven assumptions that are standing in the way of living your dream life. Whether you want a promotion (but assume your boss does not understand your work), start a business (but assume it will take too much money), or become a writer (but are assuming no one will like your writing) you are lettings assumptions stand in the way of the life you crave.
In this week’s episode we discuss the importance of challenging every assumption by asking questions and doing the research to find out the facts. We talk about the false ideas we had when we first chose to travel and how we overcame then.
In addition, we are joined by psychologist and coach Karen Sargent, who escaped the corporate world to live life on HER terms. She’s written an ebook called The Art of Making Big Dreams Happen, which you can find on her website, The 1 Big Thing, for free. Karen shares her insights and tips to help you challenge these assumptions and unlock the life you dream about.
Your Action Plan to Challenging the Assumptions in your Life:
- Become aware of the assumptions you are holding on to by asking the question “What is it that I want?”
- Free write for 5 minutes listing out the assumptions you have about your dream life. Leave it then for 1 day and then come back and read what you’ve written and highlight your assumptions.
- Ask yourself “What new possibility can I create to open up new choices in my life?”
