God has a plan for you … Really?

god's will

How To Discern God’s Will For You These platitudes about God’s will can sometimes leave us sitting on the side of the road feeling lost. God is not going to tell you to buy a Ford vs a Chevy. You’re gonna have to do the research to make an intelligent decision. Being in God’s will is like being on a cruise ship – you need to be on the ship but you get to choose your cabin. I’ve got specific instructions for this listener to take action. Episode #689 November 08, 2019 Hi this is Dan Miller – and yes you’re … Read More

I’m not an early bird. Can I still get a worm?

early bird

I say trust your natural rhythm. Don’t force yourself to be an early bird / morning person if you’re not. I know – we keep hearing about that early bird – but then all he got is a worm. I know plenty of highly creative and productive people who don’t get started until noon.   Episode #688 November 01, 2019 Hi, this is Dan Miller – and yes you’re listening to the 48 Days Radio show – where each week we take 48 minutes to dive into real-life questions about finding your passion, deciding what kind of life you want … Read More

Am I selling out if I give up and get help?

getting help in your business

Getting Help In Your Business You’re slamming the door on any hope of success if you DO NOT reach out for help. I really can’t imagine any business where any one person could do it all alone. If you’re an artist – chances are strong you need someone to help sell your work. If you’re a writer – you’re going to need an editor and a publisher – otherwise, you’re going to have a book that sells 100 copies.

My parents don’t support my dreams!

should I give up my dreams to please my parents

A listener asks: should I give up my dreams to please my parents? When I put this phrase in a Google search it gave me 48,800,000 results. Apparently that’s a challenge for quite a few people. You can love your parents but don’t let them bury your dreams. Everyone will end up resentful. Go ahead and surprise them by being successful!  Episode #686 October 18, 2019 Hi this is Dan Miller – and yes you’re listening to the 48 Days Radio show – where each week we take 48 minutes to dive into real-life questions about finding your passion, deciding what … Read More

Giving up isn’t the same as moving on!

Give up

Should I just give up? I test lots of things for one year. If at that time it is not the success I had planned for, I typically stop spending time and money there and move on to the next opportunity. But that’s much different than giving up. All of life’s experiences are preparing us for things to come. If we give up, it implies we stop and just wallow in our misery and disappointment. I give more examples of what this looks like in this episode.  Episode #685 October 11, 2019 Hi, this is Dan Miller – and yes … Read More

Can you be rich and still have a peaceful mindset?

creating a course

Leveraging your unique knowledge by creating a course, writing an ebook, starting a membership. I share the story of an actor who is giving away his $714 million nest egg. He says he just wants a normal life and peace of mind? Would you still have peace of mind if you had millions to your name? If you aren’t confident you could, then you may be sabotaging your ability to increase your wealth.  Episode #683 September 27, 2019 Hi, this is Dan Miller – and yes you’re listening to the 48 Days Radio show – where each week we take … Read More

Don’t chase the snake of revenge

revenge

If you feel like someone has done you wrong, don’t seek revenge – listen in. How often I see people chasing the snake and seeking revenge in their own lives.  The company folds or you just simply get laid off.  The immediate reaction may include anger, resentment, bitterness, and backstabbing.  These lead to discouragement, frustration, guilt and depression.  Be aware that all of these revenge focused reactions and feelings focus on the past.  Turning around and looking to the future opens up confidence, boldness, and enthusiasm.

I don’t want to lose what I have, but I also don’t want to lose who I am

blend purpose and passion

Can you blend purpose and passion? A listener wants to know if it’s possible to blend purpose and passion with making money. Not only is it possible – it’s essential. Without purpose and passion you will burn out. Making money alone is not enough compensation for investing your time and energy.  Episode #681 September 13, 2019 Hi, this is Dan Miller – and yes you’re listening to the 48 Days Radio show – where each week we take 48 minutes to dive into real life questions about finding your passion, deciding what kind of life you want to live – … Read More
