Episode 33: How to Get Unstuck and Create Your Dream Life! Secret is the 3C's!


Quote: "Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear, not absence of fear." - Mark Twain

Folks, I'd like to start today's episode by asking you a few questions: 

  • What is the #1 thing that's currently stopping you from creating your dream life?
  • What is stopping you from being the best version of yourself? 
  • Is it lack of self confidence? Is it fear of public speaking? Is it the lack of fire or spark within you, not knowing what makes you feel fulfilled? 

Quote"Your success will be determined by your own confidence and fortitude." - Michelle Obama

In order to create the life that you dream of, you've heard me repeatedly on this show that you have to see it, hear it and feel it in your inner world in order to amplify & manifest it in the outer reality.  However, what are the building blocks that you need to take to transform your dream to your reality? The secret is the 3 C's…what is that? In today's episode, I will share:

  1. 3 C's: Confidence, Communication, Compassion
  2. Personal stories that lit the fire within me
  3. 3 Levels of Communication
  4. I'll share action steps (3 C's Challenge) that will help you strengthen your muscle in building Confidence, Communication and Compassion!

 Show Notes

[2:06] - Hi folks, welcome back to episode 33 of the Boom Vision podcast! Today's episode is about how YOU can create your dream life!

In the past few weeks, I experienced a series of beautiful events that inspired me to share today's topic with you. What are the 3 C's? The 3 C's are Confidence, Communication, and Compassion.

1. Confidence

Quote: "I can be changed by what happens to me. But I refuse to be reduced by it." - Maya Angelou

Self-confidence is a bit of a chicken or egg problem, right? It's like a vicious cycle: if you lack self-confidence, you're less likely to achieve the success that could give you more confidence.

If you recall in Episode 29, one of the secrets in building self confidence is that Believing is Seeing! You got to see it in you mind first, hear it in your mind, and feel it in your body, so that you can achieve it. But what if you lack the confidence to get that jump started?

Story of parent teacher conference: Exercise on reflection.

[4:28] - Chapter 1: Nintendo

Question: How did I manage to have that much willpower as a kid? As a shy introvert, being a kid that's not talkative and didn't have much friends, how in the world did I muster the courage to do that?

[8:32] - Chapter 2: Wave Off

In the documentary 38 At the Garden, Comedian Hasan Minhaj shares: "How many moments in my own life, did I pass up the ball or hold myself small? How many times did I turn in that assignment, or not audition for that thing, or not put my name as #1 on the sheet? How many times did I not wave someone off?"

[11:18] - Chapter 3: Peter

Being picked last in team games, being a target when your opponent picks on you, I reached a breaking point where enough was enough.

Similar to the Maya Angelou quote I shared earlier, "I can be changed by what happens to me. But I refuse to be reduced by it.

Main Takeaway with these 3 chapters is this: What sparks that fire within you? What's the driving force that ignites your willpower? Is it a burning desire for something you absolutely must have? What's your version of my Nintendo story? Is it a rival or arch nemesis that you must overcome?

The thing about confidence is that you can only build it up through adversity

[16:29] - Communication

Personal Story: HS, College, Grad School public speaking

[18:24] - Top 3 Levels of Communications I learned from public speaking:

  1. Level 1: To communicate your thoughts clearly and concisely.
  2. Level 2: To communicate your thoughts with feeling and emotion.
  3. Level 3: To communicate in inspiring people to take action. 

[19:34] - Quote: "I fear not the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks once, but I fear the man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times." - Bruce Lee

[20:28] - Compassion

Quote: "If you do not respect your own wishes, no one else will. You will simply attract people who disrespect you as much as you do." - Vironika Tugaleva

[22:19] - Action Steps: 3 C's Challenge for 3 Days!

  1. Confidence: What is one thing, that's sitting right outside your comfort zone, that you will learn to improve? Action: Take one step every day for a 3 days to create that momentum for yourself in increasing your self confidence.
  2. CommunicationWhat is one action you will take to improve your communication?
  3. CompassionWhat is one act of give or compassion you can do for yourself every day for one week?

The purpose of this week's 3C's Challenge is to strengthen your muscle on your Confidence, Communication and Compassion. If you are more confidence, better communicator, and compassionate, I promise you, your core energy and your way of being shifts to a higher level. 

[24:55] - Final Thoughts

Quote: "Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence." - Helen Keller

Folks I hope you enjoy today's sharing of the 3 C's. This 3 buildings block can bridge the gap between what you dream of, to making it a reality for yourself.  You deserve to have your dreams come true. I believe in you, but you have to believe in yourself, convince yourself before you can convince others. Believe in yourself before you believe in others, and show compassion towards yourself before you show compassion to others. If you want to create your dream life, you need to see it, hear it and feel it, then take actions to achieve it!
