From Dreams to Goals

Top 10 quotes from the episode:

“Failure is a precious gift. It’s an inevitable step on your way to success, and a step you need to take more than once.”

“Now is the best time to do what you want, any other time will be too late.”

“The best cure for procrastination is to start doing something immediately, without thinking and giving your mind time to come up with excuses. Without doubting your abilities and fearing failure.”

“You don’t get what you want, or what you think you deserve.
Instead, you get exactly what you work for, what you focus on, what you take action upon every single day”

“Successful people with goals accept each new day as another opportunity to make the best of it, to become a little better, to improve areas in their life, to work harder, and to move forward.”

“People will always have something to judge you on, something to disagree with. So let them do it.”

“There’s always a smarter, faster, easier and simpler way to do anything. You just need to try out different versions and see what’s best for you.”

“To fall in love with what you do is a great thing. It helps you work many hours every day without feeling exhausted.“

“Successful mindset, good habits and consistency is what can give you the life you’re dreaming about. Don’t let it slip away.”

“Dreams are too vague. That’s why they often sound impossible. And that’s why we get discouraged from the start.”

Update on my progress

So that’s the second time I’m recording anything and editing audio. I changed the intro, at least the words I say and my intonation. I like it better now.

The content I share here is more and the podcast episode is almost 20 minutes. That’s something.

As for the way I speak, last time I was either monotone, or overdid it in my desire to sound natural and still have excitement in my voice to keep the listener engaged. Now, I’m just monotone but less often. So that’s progress.

I’m positive about this and think there will be more improvement soon.

Stay tuned.

Thanks for listening.
