“I’m living the dream,” is sarcasm. The only dream you’re living includes stinky sweat and purposeful perseverance.
"The only thing easy about big dreams is dreaming them."

3 myths about big dreams:

Myth #1: The universe conspires to make it happen. I don’t know what Ralph Waldo Emerson was smoking when he said, “Once you make a decision, the universe conspires to make it happen.”
The universe conspires to stay the same.
Myth #2: The path forward is easy. An easy dream insults your talent.

Myth #3: The path forward is is predictable. The path always has surprising turns. Sometimes you end up where you didn’t planned to go.

Disruption: Dreams always cause confusion. It’s never a straight line to success.
Difficulty: An easy dream isn’t a dream. It’s an illusion.
Delay: Most big dreams take longer than expected.
Disappointment: The path forward is littered with a thousand small defeats.
Death: Dreams die and come to life again.
The deeper issue of dreams: Character

Success destroys the unprepared. The ‘D’s’ of disruption, difficult, delay, disappointment, and death shape you.
"Who you become is more important than what you accomplish."
Action not imagination:

Make a list of everything you might do to achieve your dream. I’m not talking about spending time in your basement imagining and planning. I’m talking about things you can actually do – out in the world – to bring your dream to life.
"The only decision that makes things happen is the one that gets your butt off the couch."
3 questions that give legs to your dreams:
  1. Who might you approach, recruit, or serve?
  2. What products might you create and deliver?
  3. What imperfect progress might you make this week?
