How to Take Action on Your Dreams (w/ Scott Voelker)
The 100th episode is on the horizon, and to celebrate it, we’ll be featuring 3 iconic episodes from the show’s past releases! A second re-release down, here’s episode no. 59 with Scott Voelker.
“I am all about taking the risk.”
We all carry a certain vision in our minds that we want to turn into reality. This vision is often fueled by passion, and we could have had this passion for most of our lives. Perhaps it’s a passion you found early on in your younger days, or perhaps it’s something new that you’ve just found love for. Regardless of whether it’s old or new, dreams are the vision people have for themselves, a goal that they want to work towards for the rest of their lives.
It’s a great thing to have the perfect visualization of yourself in your mind, and to know where you want to be. But do you know how to get yourself from here to there? A dream- as powerful of a fuse it is in igniting the explosion we call success- is just like potential energy. Sure, it’s got the kick to take you places, but it won’t go anywhere without the right starter. It won’t take you anywhere if you don’t take action. How do you take action, exactly?
Taking action on your dreams is like making a leap of faith into the uncertainty that the future holds. Comfort zones are often within your space, and you need to get out of THAT space. You have to get to where you want to go, and where you want to go isn’t where you are right now. As you watch this episode, you’ll realize that taking action is taking risks. When you want to act on your dreams, you’ll eventually have to make a gamble and expose yourself to a little risk, with the better chance of growth.
On this release, we’ll be recalling the topics I covered with Scott Voelker about how we can take the right set of actions and turn our dreams into reality. Tune in as we cover a portion of his book, the “Take Action Effect,” which talks about the elaborate plan he devised to help himself and other entrepreneurs find success. Scott emphasizes the importance of mindset and how taking out “Mental trash”- which hinders you from finally working on your goals- is very important. Have you stopped making excuses, and finally started working on goals that you only used to talk about WANTING to work on?
Now a father of 3 kids and a loving husband to his wife for the past 25 years and counting, Scott Voelker decided one day that he didn’t want to keep swinging hammers for the rest of his life. Right after graduating high school, Scott was pushed into the life of a construction worker. He changed his mind somewhere down the line, and finally decided to take the reins. He steered himself towards the direction of success, building his own company known as “The Brand Creators.”
With The Brand Creators, Scott has helped thousands of people unlock their true potential by helping then TAKE ACTION. With his guidance, many entrepreneurs have found success he calls their “ultimate freedom business.” Scott has proven to be a great brand builder through his work, developing the skills of his clients to turn them into confident, resilient, and future proof entrepreneurs.
