Happy Monday, and welcome back to another episode of Monday Morning Motivation.

Today, we're delving into a powerful mantra that can catapult you toward your dream life: "Dream. Plan. DO."

These three simple words, upon reflection, hold the key to transforming your dreams into reality. So, let's explore how to weave this mantra into your life.


Dreaming is essential, as our regular listeners know. It all begins with dreams. Your dreams serve as the compass for your journey. Rather than starting with goals, which are often constrained, dreams emerge from our hearts, embodying our true desires.

It's crucial to ensure your dreams are genuinely your own, not influenced by external expectations. If you're uncertain about your dreams, take time this week to reflect on your deepest desires, considering both short-term and long-term aspirations.

Ask yourself, what would you do if failure wasn't an option? If resources were no obstacle, what would you pursue? What vision do you have for your life? For those seeking guidance, I offer an online course to aid this reflection.

However, if your dreams are already clear, let them be your driving force.


After defining your dreams, the next step is planning. Without a roadmap, even the most compelling dreams can stay out of reach. Break down your big dreams into actionable steps using the SMART criteria—Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, and Time-bound.

This approach ensures your plan is clear, realistic, and deadline-driven. Planning when to take each step is as important as knowing what steps to take. In my experience and that of many in our coaching program, planning quarterly can significantly impact your progress.

3: DO

The final, critical step is taking action. Dreams and plans are foundational, but without action, they remain ideas. Embrace the "DO" part of the mantra by starting small. Don't let the size of your dreams intimidate you. Begin with small, manageable actions. Consistency in these small steps will inevitably lead you to your goals.

As we conclude today's episode, remember, "Dream. Plan. DO." is more than a catchy phrase—it's a straightforward blueprint for success. Your dreams are valid, your plans are necessary, and your actions will define your journey.

Thank you for tuning into this Monday morning motivation podcast. I hope you feel inspired to Dream, Plan, and Do this week.

If you found today's episode enlightening, share it with someone in need of a little Monday motivation.

Have a fantastic Monday and a productive week. See you on Friday!
