We all have dreams. Why is it some people are taking huge strides towards realizing them while others are resigned to spectating?
As a spectator it seems like the only thing standing between you and realizing your dream is luck. A chance meeting with an executive who could fast-track your career. A big-name client with the credibility to explode your brand’s exposure. Or in Dylan’s case, a well connected promoter who can put his latest album on the map.
Maybe it is luck. But I believe in an adage with a different take on it: “The harder I work, the luckier I get.”
I’m stoked to have Dylan Sneed with me today to share his story of how he escaped the corporate grind to travel the world as a musician. Dylan is anything but a spectator, and his story is filled with important lessons for Life Stoked Nation.
- What he did while working for a dream-crushing mega-corporation that allowed him to chase his dreams later.
- Why you shouldn’t be trying to conquer your fears (and what you should do instead).
- What he wrote in his journal while sitting in his cubicle that changed everything.
- One simple action that separates Dylan’s amazing story from everyone else’s typical story.
- One thing you must be willing to do if you take your dream seriously.
How great is Dylan’s story! It definitely passes The Fireside Chat Test. You know what my favorite part is? With all he’s done so far you can tell he’s just at the beginning.
That’s how it feels when you’re living a great story. You’ve done a lot of cool things you can check off your list, but there’s so much more adventure to go. There’s still something bigger you want. And there’s still a question of whether or not you’ll succeed. And that’s awesome.
Something else I love about Dylan’s adventure is he’s taking you with him! Through the magic of Kickstarter you can become a part of Dylan’s story as he pursues his goal to accelerate his career years into the future.
You’ve got big dreams too. What’s one thing you heard in Dylan’s story you can take and use immediately? Let me know in the comments below.
