Episode 13: We Do a Dreams Discussion

In this episode of I Do, We Do, we each share and discuss 10 new dreams and work them out together in order to add to our official combined Dream List. In a previous episode we discussed goal setting and how dreaming is the first step, but many have reached out to us with issues coming up with dreams. Hopefully hearing us go through this process will show you just how simple it is.

    • “Have an open-mind. Be excited for your partner’s dreams. Push them. It’s okay to question them a little bit, but don’t tear them down right away.”

Ashley is motivated by Will Smith’s recent YouTube video, because he preaches the importance of how you should do things that scare you so that you’ll grow  

“If you can be disciplined and write down everything you truly want to do and discuss it with your partner, it leads to a lot of “ah-hah” moments.”

“It’s not about whether you need more of in life, because you should be happy with who you are and where you are. This is about whether or not you want something more and if you want more then you really are searching for growth.”
