194: What Will the Dream Cost You?



When you want to pursue a dream you have, have you considered what it might cost you? In this episode, we’re talking about what it takes to get to the next level as you pursue growth.


We’ll cover:

  • What it means to work from your zone of genius, and how to discover what that is for you
  • Why we’re tempted to remain in our zone of excellence, and the real problem with sticking with what’s worked in the past
  • Why surrounding yourself with people and asking for help is a key part of moving to the next level
  • The role your thoughts play in your ability to get where you want to go


We’ll talk about why pursuing your dream begins with knowing what matters to you, and the role of impact and income in your work. I hope this episode inspires and challenges you to explore what it would mean to do work out of your own zone of genius as you do the work of pursuing your dream.
