“In the end, the people that bail on their dreams often pursue a direction that isn’t right for them. Many didn’t learn, or they weren’t taught, that the only constant thing in life is change and the only secure thing resides inside of you, not outside.” – Kathy Caprino

At this very moment in time, the future — and where we are all going as a society — is on everyone’s mind more than ever. On this week’s Finding Brave show, I explore a critical power gap and chapter from my new book, The Most Powerful You: 7 Bravery-Boosting Paths to Career Bliss, which is Power Gap #6: Losing Sight of Your Thrilling Dream for Your Life. 

Things will happen to each of us that derail our dreams, and often you’ll take a direction that you think is right for you, but it ends up being the wrong path. It’s a universal experience — that what we once believed was possible and desirable can change, and we have to change as a result. If you don’t want to wake up unhappy years from now, you have to accept this fact and realize that you alone are responsible for you how you respond to the life that’s before you, and to the challenges and hardships that you’ve faced. 

You alone have the power to shape your future, and now is the time to choose your own way in pursuit of the life you want to live and the mark you want to make in the world.

Highlights from this Episode:

  • What this power gap most often looks like in the people that possess it [3:34] 

  • The painful story of how I bailed on my own dreams right after my college graduation [6:52]
  • What I consider to be the most valuable lesson that I received from this experience [8:27]

  • How my client Kendra chose a professional direction from childhood on that she thought would save her, only to find it was wrong, but then gained control of her life and future [11:22]

  • Why the rigid, unyielding belief that “You’ll absolutely go broke and lose everything if you follow your passion” is a damaging myth in our society [12:24]

  • The four core reasons that people most often lose sight of their thrilling dreams [14:27]

  • The six types of people who seemed to be most susceptible to this damaging power gap [20:42]

  • How searching outside of yourself for the answers isn’t an effective approach to overcoming this gap [24:02]

  • Some key questions to ask yourself today to start uncovering your true passions [29:02]

“You know I’ve personally lived all these gaps, and that’s why I’m so passionate about helping others bypass or overcome them.” [4:10]

“You’ll often experience this gap if you start out on a path you think is the right one, but don’t listen to yourself when it’s not feeling right.” [10:08]

“I don’t believe in regret, and I think we’re going to use everything that happens to us, but if I had answered these questions 30 years ago I would not have made the mistakes that I’ve made.” [11:00]

“So many people remain stuck in a direction they can’t stand, and they do it because of money.” [12:11]

“Why can’t we have work that lights us up from the inside? Who said that we can’t, and make great money in the process?” [13:01] 

“We have to stop letting our concerns and fears block our ability to see the possibilities.” [15:34] 

“If you want to gain sight of your thrilling dream for the future and get on that path, you’ve got to build your self-confidence, your self-esteem and your boundaries.” [28:37]
