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. Here is a link to our past episodes.
When marching towards the life you crave you are going to encounter obstacles and roadblocks. In fact, you’re probably going to find your first one about 3.2 seconds after you decide to go after your dream. The secret to success is knowing you will have obstacles and creating a plan to deal with them before they jump out in front of you. When you have a plan in place, you’ll continue moving forward toward your dream no matter what comes up, and that’s the key to getting to the finish line.
This week we are joined by Dixie Gillaspie, author of the book, Just Blow it Up: Firepower for Living an Unlimited Life. We discuss how to overcome the challenges and obstacles that stand in the way of living the life you crave. You’ll also learn the 4 questions to ask yourself when confronted with an obstacle.
Your Action Plan steps:
- Dream Big, Thing Small. What can you do today that will move you closer to your dream?
- Check your premise. Don’t say “can’t” without understanding why. Explore deeper why you “can’t” do something and if it is truly possible.
- Let go of the idea of perfection. Just get it out there.

Next week we’ll be talking about streamlining your life by getting rid of the excess. When you’re weighted down, it’s pretty hard to soar high enough to reach your dreams. And we’ll have the first of our Dream Makeovers (we have several recorded already, and you are going to LOVE these!)
Until next time, remember to take the first step and keep on moving.
