Dream Big With Mitch Matthews And Change Your Life Forever
My guest today, on the Steve Jobs inspired Join Up Dots free podcast interview is a man who from an early age made big decisions as to how to get what he wanted in life. So many people live a life of reaction. They wait for something to pass them by and then reach out hoping that their fingers might just grab a bit of what they have seen. This is certainly not the case with todays guest, as demonstrated at just age twelve, he set his sights on attaining his first “dream job.” (Working at a local bike shop) So he spent 2 to 4 hours a every day that summer just hanging out, cleaning, and watching. By the end of the summer the bike shop owner (one of our guests heroes) offered him a job. (It was either that or have him arrested for loitering!) And that says so much about where our guest is today, inspiring people to take the actions that will make their dreams big and real. Now this is where it all comes together, as he says in his own words In 2006, he and his wife were working on one of their own big dreams (launching a product) and they experienced some significant set backs in a very short time. He was tempted to give up and go back to something “safe.” But since this was one of his big dreams, he got the idea that maybe some friends could help. Then he started to think that maybe… just maybe… he could help some of his friends with some of their big dreams too. And bang the 1st BIG Dream Gathering was formed, as on a whim, he invited some friends and family to participate in something he called a “BIG Dream Gathering.” It was only supposed to last for a few hours but it wound up continuing on for a FULL WEEK! So living a life where you whole aim is to inspire people to take action and dream big, can be so exhausting as every waking second your mind whirrs with the possibilities that abound. So how has he managed to create the life he wants, business he wants, become a top podcaster and still look like he has just left high-school? And what is the number one peice of advice that he gives the world, when asked "How do I start my dream too?" Well lets find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots, with the one and only Mitch Matthews Show Highlights During the show we discussed such weighty topics with Mitch Matthews such as: Mitch shares how he now realizes that he is a recovering perfectionist, and the steps that he takes to get past these mental blocks. We talk about how all of us must learn ways of starting small in a business even if you only have fifteen minutes a day. They all add up to something worthwhile. Why Mitch is such an advocate of resting, and allowing himself to shut down the brain. Ke know what is right for his own body and ensures its part of his calendar. and lastly…. You might find it a surprise that "Being a freak" is classed as a badge of honour by both Mitch and David and the reasons why.
