Dreams, Leadership, Frustrations, & What’s Next… Deep Thoughts with TD

I’m getting a little deep on you today and talking about some things on my mind and thoughts from my heart. I am talking about dreams, leadership, frustrations, and what’s next in life. Specifically, I want to talk about how dreams keep you alive, leadership in today’s crazy & chaotic times, and my thoughts on the question of “What’s next?”

Listen in, hear my thoughts, and then I encourage you to answer the questions I share with you: 

  1. What is your God-Sized Dream?
  2. What do you MOST love doing these days?
  3. How can you be a better leader today with your family and business/career?
  4. How & where do you invest your attention?
  5. How do you be more present in the moment?
  6. What’s next in life?  
  7. What frustrates you the most? (I share 2 things that really frustrate me).
  8. Who are you most grateful for? 

My man Wayne Cotton often says… ”Fear, frustration, and failure are often conquered with Faith, Fortitude, Forward-Thinking, and Follow-Through! Let’s see what we can do today to live our best life…TODAY!

Please share today’s episode with your family, friends, colleagues, and challenge them to answer the above questions also. And you know I would love it if you shared it on your social media and please tag me at…
