3/18/2019
More
One of the skills that will be most important in achieving your big dreams is learning to seek guidance from those who have already found success. Think about it... The most successful people in any field have dedicated years, if not decades, towards their journey. Can you imagine all of the lessons they were learning along that path? Many of those were painful lessons from mistakes that could have been avoided. Wouldn’t it be nice if you can find mentors who can help you avoid those same...

DB 128: Here’s Why Most People Don’t Achieve Their Big Dreams

3/11/2019
More
Since this is the Dream Big Podcast, we know that all of you listening have BIG DREAMS. Many listeners have taken the time to write us emails to share their Big Dreams. Johnny, an 8 year old boy from Texas, wrote in and shared his dream of one day being an astronaut like Chris Hadfield who was our guest in Episode 30.

DB 127: Why You MUST Practice Gratitude Daily (& Two Of Eva’s Favorite Strategies)

3/4/2019
More
Gratitude is an important theme on this podcast. In Episode 8, Eva even did an entire episode on 5 reasons to be grateful. In that episode, we shared many startling statistics about very difficult circumstances that so many of our fellow humans across the world find themselves living in. For instance 785 million people go to bed hungry. Over 100 million are homeless. Tens of millions are living in war torn regions. Over 2.5 billion do not have access to clean water and sanitation. And over...

DB 126: Famous Failures (Jordan, Disney, Lincoln, Rowling) Who Thankfully Did Not Give Up!

2/25/2019
More
One theme that Eva talks about all the time on the Podcast is that on your road to achieving your big dreams -- you will experience setbacks, obstacles, and even failures. But Big Dreamers who are truly passionate about their dreams do not give up. Instead, Big Dreamers treat failures as a learning experience on the difficult journey towards achieving their dreams. Today, Eva shares some examples of famous people (Michael Jordan, Walt Disney, JK Rowling, Abe Lincoln and others!) who all...

DB 125: The Elephant & The Rope - Why Big Dreamers Must Never Give Up!

2/18/2019
More
Breaking free from barriers or limitations set by others is a common theme on the Dream Big Podcast. In this episode, Eva and her sister Sophia share the story of a majestic elephant at a circus who can easily break free of the rope tied to her leg. But because the elephant was conditioned from a young age to believe that the rope was strong enough to hold her in place, the elephant does not bother to even try to break free. Eva then applies the lesson of this story to her own life and...

DB 124: The Chicken & The Eagle Story -- Why You Should Choose Friends Who Are Also Big Dreamers!

2/11/2019
More
We have spent a lot of energy sharing our thoughts on how you achieve your Big Dreams -- but in looking at our past episodes we realized that we have focused almost exclusively on the individual’s journey. These topics -- such as developing self-belief, persistence, and hard work -- are all vital to achieving your Big Dreams. But we realized we had not adequately addressed the importance of your peer group, specifically making sure you surround yourself with other Big Dreamers rather than...

DB 123: You must fall before you can fly! Just ask an Eagle :)

2/4/2019
More
There is an incredible speaker named Myron Golden who teaches about the Law Of Advancement. The idea behind this law is that you must always go down before you can go up. It might sound backwards but think about it for a second. For a seed to turn into a tree -- it must first go into the ground before it can sprout. Before skyscrapers are built -- construction workers have to dig deep into the ground to lay the proper foundation to support the skyscraper that will be erected above the...

One of the lessons we keep on learning from all our incredible guests -- from Kobe Bryant, to General Stanley McCrystal, to Melissa Hartwig - and pretty much every guest we’ve had on the podcast -- is that they all worked super hard over many, many, many years to achieve their Big Dreams. Each person goes through a long, challenging journey and overcomes countless obstacles to turn their dreams into reality -- it certainly does not magically happen overnight. Today, we are super excited...

1/21/2019

In today’s episode, Eva shares a powerful life lesson taught to us by Lobsters. Yes, LOBSTERS. You never know who is going to be your mentor on the Dream Big Podcast. Haha. So you are probably wondering at this point -- Lobsters? What in the world can Lobsters teach us about life? Don’t worry -- I would be wondering the same thing myself -- but then our family came across a video of a Rabbi - Dr. Abraham Twerski -- who shared such a beautiful and powerful story about Lobsters that we just...

We were lucky enough to have Simon Sinek on the Dream Big Podcast in Episode 91. He was one of Eva’s favorite guests evers so definitely check out that episode if you haven’t at DreamBigPodcast.com/91. We recently came across a video of him speaking entitled “How To Never Be Nervous Again.” That is a pretty bold promise -- so of course we had to watch the video (and it is not surprise the video has gone viral with millions of views). In this episode, Eva describes the amazing story Simon...

Chris Colfer rose to fame as a Golden Globe-winning actor best known for his role as "Kurt Hummel"" on Glee. But to Eva, Chris is the author of one of her favorite book series -- The Land Of Stories.

DB 116: The Secret Is… It All Starts With Belief!

12/17/2018

One of the most remarkable stories that illustrates the power of belief is Roger Bannister’s feat of running a sub 4-minute mile. Before May 6, 1954, no human had ever recorded a mile in under 4 minutes. Roger Bannister broke this barrier, and since that time thousands of athletes have done so. When Roger Bannister accomplished this feat -- it then became possible in the minds of all other aspiring mile runners.

When we watched Elora Hardy’s TED Talk and saw photos of the magical bamboo houses that she was building in Bali, Eva immediately said that we need to invite Elora on the podcast.
