How to Navigate Life’s Personal & Professional Challenges
I was a Fortune 100 executive, but I had a dream to sail around the world with my wife and our two children. We spent four years preparing for our 16-month, life-changing voyage. After completing this wonderful journey, and taking from this life-changing experience and my experience from years of corporate success at Proctor & Gamble (P&G) and PepsiCo, I want to share how you can realize your dreams.
Here are a few pieces of advice that you can apply to whatever area you choose - your career, business or personal life:
• Dream Like You Mean It: Sailing around the world, starting a business or winning a competition are all amazing dreams. However, dreams need to be specific. When dreams are vague, people tend to focus on obstacles, fears and dreads. Being specific about your dreams enables you to clearly define the steps you need to make them a reality.
• Climb Your Ladder of Intentionality: Having specific dreams is not enough. You need to become intentional. Commit. Write them down. Declare them out loud. Get others talking about them. This helps you climb your ladder of intentionality.
• Ready Yourself, Your Crew and Your Ship: The better you plan and prepare, the more likely it is that you’ll succeed. Understand what you need to know, do, and know how to do in order to accomplish your business and personal dreams.
• Summon Your Courage: Venturing into the unknown isn’t easy. Whatever your dream, you’ll encounter obstacles and challenges. Overcoming your fears will allow you to achieve your goals. Trust yourself and your team. Be optimistic. Listen carefully. Accept reality quickly.
