Put Your Dream to the Test (Part 1)

Do you own your dream for your life? Do you even have a dream for your life? Those are a couple of the questions John C. Maxwell asks in this new series, Put Your Dream to the Test, based on his book of the same title. Many people don’t have a dream for their life or they give up too quickly on the one they do have. Sometimes their dream isn’t actually their dream––it’s someone else’s dream for them.

In John’s book and online course, he asks 10 questions that will help you make your dream a reality. This series covers the first of those 10 questions––the ownership question––which asks, “Is your dream really your dream?” This episode will help you identify if you truly own your dream and how you can make it a reality.

During the discussion, Mark Cole and Jason Brooks point out that having a dream takes courage and hard work. They challenge you to start betting on yourself, take an inventory of your dream(s), and ask, “Do I own my dream?”

  1. I am very uncomfortable with the term “betting” instead of something like “investing “… but your comments on contributing vs betting helped me to realize that my discomfort was because I want to invest carefully and cautiously. If that dream is really God’s dream and call for me, then I don’t want to invest what I can afford to lose. I want to be all in, every chip in the pot. Thank you for the blessing of that discomfort!

  2. Life begins at 40 and so we should learn to relax and enjoy life by staying fit such as yoga (Suryanamaskara alone is sufficient for 20 minutes a day) and happy birthday to Mr. Brook.

    Wonderful podcast and inspiring.

  3. Great message! Yes, it is scary knowing that resources are going out, effort is being made, and people think you have lost your mind believing in a dream. I have not and I will not give up the effort to strengthen my skills toward my new purpose.
