DB 098: Zig Ziglar’s Timeless Quote: You Don't Have To Be Great To Start, But You Have To Start To Be Great

In this week’s episode, Eva answers a question from a Big Dreamer who is interested in starting her own podcast.  Jenny from Long Island has been waiting for 2 years to launch her podcast because she is trying to get everything perfect before she publishes her 1st episode.  Eva shares a great Zig Ziglar quote -- “You Don't Have To Be Great To Start, But You Have To Start To Be Great” -- and encourages Jenny to get started now. There is a great lesson for all Big Dreamers, young and old, who are pressing the snooze button on their dreams.

DB 097: Worst Case Scenario Thinking: A “Backwards” Strategy To Get You Out Of Your Comfort Zone

We are big proponents of having a positive attitude here at the Dream Big Podcast.   So I think that most of our Big Dreamers will be surprised that this week’s episode is about engaging in Worst Case Scenario thinking.   This “backwards” strategy is very powerful, and will be a good lesson for kids and adults that the “worse case scenario” is often not that terrible after all.   And when you compare the “worse case scenario” with the benefits that you’ll experience if the outcome turns out positive, this strategy will help you break out of your comfort zone and grow.    For our show notes, visit DreamBigPodcast.com/97
