If you could wave a magic wand and have your dream come true, would you know what that dream looks like?
For most of you, I would guess, you can describe it pretty easily. Maybe it’s to start your own business or travel the world. For me, I have always dreamt of of owning a horse ranch here in California overlooking the ocean. Often times, our dreams seem unattainable, but according to Lewis Howes, creating a clear vision of our dreams is how we can help them come true.
During my latest sit-down interview for THE PATH with LU PARKER, Lewis and I discussed his philosophies in his latest New York Times best-selling novel The School of Greatness: A Real World Guide to Living Bigger, Loving Deeper and Leaving a Legacy.
Lewis’s backstory includes the dream of playing professional football. He made it, but was injured his rookie year and found himself broke living on his sister’s couch for almost two years. He is now a successful entrepreneur, business coach, author and keynote speaker. Lewis and I also discussed how fear paralyzed him in the beginning. Here he explains how to tackle fear:
As a former professional athlete, Lewis believes being a coachable student of life can create a space for all of us to grow in our personal and professional lives.
One of my favorite moments of chatting with Lewis was his revelation of the power of “letting go.” It is something I personally work on daily, and I believe if we can let go of fear, control, negative self-talk and even the need to be perfect, we can instead be present in our lives which leads ultimately to peace of mind.
