How to Live the Life of Your Dreams….

July 5th I interviewed Dianne Gubin, the CEO of Tech Exec Partners.

How do you find your life passion? How do you shift gears?

Check out to find out more about Dianne Gubin and how she works with CEO’s to recent college grads [and everyone in between!] to focus on their passions in life.

One of the points that many people forget to focus on is BRANDING themselves in life, and in work.

What do I believe in?
What are my passions?
What are my Values?
What do I love doing?
What Social and Political issues do I care about?
Do I love animals, kids, trees, sailing, etc..?

Simple questions help you to navigate how, exactly, to honestly and accurately BRAND yourself.

Dianne reminds us that Celebrities and major companies are mindful about their “branding” and everyone should be, regardless of what your desires in life are:

Dianne asked a great question: “What would you do if you knew you could not fail?”

Great question. I wish someone had asked me this when I was in College. I believe I could have saved myself the horrors of the wrong directions long ago.

But if you have made mistakes…. you are in good company!

The most important question to ask yourself is, “What did I learn?” …. and take the steps to make the immediate changes in your “self-talk” and navigate a new path for yourself. This will include, undoubtedly, re-evaluating yourself, understanding how to make better choices in life, exercising your “intuitive muscle” to better measure people and situations, finding the groups whom you should be associating with, looking at your passions honestly, and finding the correct people who can honorably help you reach your goals in life.

However, even if you have gone down a pathway that was not your true passion and purpose in life, YOU can take the steps to “error correct” your life and step right into the life of your dreams. Never give up.

Time is finite. Life really is short, so get naturally healthy [I have had several shows on this and will continue to do so], be mindful, be connected to a greater cause, volunteer for something you love, be a Player in this one, precious life.

Your life purpose is waiting for you to garner the self-actualization [and self esteem] to take the new path to your dream life….

My quotable for this show was “The Starfish Story”:

A man was walking along
the beach and saw a lone figure dancing about.
Fascinated, he moved closer.
He realized that the young man was not dancing,
but in one graceful movement was picking objects up
from the beach and tossing them out into the sea.

As he approached closer,
he saw that the objects were starfish.

“Why are you throwing starfish into the water?”

“If the starfish are still on the beach
when the tide goes out, they will die.”
replied the young man as he continued
tossing them out to the sea.

“That’s ridiculous! There are thousands of miles
of beaches and millions of stranded starfish.
You can’t possibly make a difference!”

The young man picked up another starfish,
paused thoughtfully
and remarked as he tossed it out into the waves,
“It makes a difference to this one!”

—- my favorite story to live by.

Peace and Love.
