TAKEAWAYS FROM THIS EPISODE:

  1. You can give someone all the best tools and tactics but they’ll still feel stuck. Change what they believe is possible…and they’ll never be the same.
  2. The key to liberate yourself is in your own pocket.
  3. Remember your future.
  4. The hardest part is not achieving the dream, it’s leaving behind the life you already have.
  5. Find your Wilson. Find your why.
  6. Take a nap, go for a walk, have some ice cream. This could be the difference between you completely giving up and you continuing towards the dream.
  7. No matter what age you are – you’re just getting started. But you have to go to work.
  8. You can achieve your dream and the dreams you didn’t even know you had.
  9. Courage is contagious. When one person has the courage to take a shaky step towards life they know awaits them, the ripple effect will be more beautiful than they ever imagined.
