One of our favorite mentors is Brendon Burchard. And today, we wanted to share an amazing quote that we heard when Brendon was interviewing another influential thought leader, Dave Hollis. Dave shared the following quote: “A ship in harbor is safe. But that’s not what ships are built for.” Our family loved this quote so much that Eva decided to make an entire episode about it, filled with some fun stories about Eva’s experiences stepping outside of her comfort zone.

Dream Big Podcast

Eva talks a lot about success, and she has interviewed many of the most successful people on the planet. But one common pattern that Eva has noticed from all of her incredible guests is that they readily admit to failures along their journey to achieving their big dreams. We stumbled across a commencement address that Denzel Washington delivered in 2011, where he eloquently shared that the way to fail is to fall forward, not backwards.

We are just a few weeks away from closing out 2020. In January of this year, none of us could have ever imagined how 2020 would unfold. In-person schools, camps, sporting events… all CANCELLED. And even worse, millions of people contracting COVID. In this episode, Eva shares that how we will remember 2020 will come down to one word :) You’ll have to listen to the episode to find out what that word is, but we did want to thank Gary Vaynerchuk for inspiring this episode.

Since we just celebrated Thanksgiving here in the US, we thought this would be the perfect episode to talk about the central theme of Thanksgiving. Giving Thanks! In other words, Gratitude. This is a subject that legendary researcher Dr. Brene Brown has conducted tons of research on, and in this episode, Eva shares the importance of incorporating a gratitude practice in your daily routine, and shares the gratitude practice that our family has done for over a year now.

Last week, Sophia was overtired and started to have a temper tantrum. She told us that the only thing that can make her stop crying and cure her sadness was a new toy. Of course, we all know that getting Sophia a toy would not lead to her everlasting happiness, but in this episode Eva really dives into WHY money and the material possessions it can buy can never guarantee your happiness. Eva borrows some great lessons from Jay Shetty’s new book Think Like A Monk. Show notes at DreamBigPodcast.com/227

DB 226: How Kamala Harris turned IMPOSSIBLE into I’M POSSIBLE show art DB 226: How Kamala Harris turned IMPOSSIBLE into I’M POSSIBLE

Dream Big Podcast

As parents, we have worked very hard to eliminate phrases like “That’s impossible” from our kids’ vocabulary. Turns out with the word IMPOSSIBLE -- you can just add a space and an apostrophe, and IMPOSSIBLE becomes I’M POSSIBLE. This idea certainly hit home with the US election earlier this month, in which Kamala Harris became the first woman and person of color to be elected Vice President. Eva shares her feelings about believing that anything is possible. Show notes at DreamBigPodcast.com/226

Have you ever been in the car in a rush to get to your destination, and hit a red light at practically every intersection along the way.   And on other days, you might take the same route and enjoy green lights all the way without having to stop once.   Matthew McConaughey talks about how to catch more greenlights in life in his new memoir, which is one of the most celebrated books of 2020 and appropriately titled “Greenlights.”  We’ve listened to Matthew brilliantly discuss the concept of Greenlights on this book tour, and Eva loves to share when complex subjects about life can be broken down into a memorable analogy.  In this episode, Eva dives deep into the analogy that is the center of Matthew’s philosophy of life.  We believe that understanding and applying this analogy in your life can help you reach your big dreams, and do so without as many stops along the way.  Thank you Matthew for giving the world this gift, and if anyone has a connection to Matthew McConaughey, please let him know that Eva will give him the green light to be a guest on the Dream Big Podcast at any time :)  Show notes at DreamBigPodcast.com/224
