Don’t wait for your ship to come in, swim out

Waiting for your ship to come in

Waiting for your ship to come in

If you can see your “ship” somewhere out there in the future, don’t just wait for it come all the way to the shore. Instead, jump in the water and swim out to grab it. That means you’ve made a plan and are taking massive action. Taking action means discouragement, frustration, disappointment, resentment and guilt all start to diminish immediately. Instead, you’ll see hope, optimism, boldness and confidence begin to grow and expand. 

Episode #654 March 08, 2019

Hi, this is Dan Miller! 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 – and then finding or creating work that allows you to show up every day, excited to be able to do something that is meaningful, fulfilling – and profitable.  This is where normal, indecision and ambiguity come to die.  Welcome to the 48 Days Radio Show.


1. How do I find my passion when I’ve allowed myself to be mediocre for 17 years?

2. How do you keep it together for your family, when all you want to do is fall apart? 

3. My two older boys are ages 8 and 10 and want to start businesses or get jobs to earn money. I want to encourage their entrepreneurial spirits, and I was curious if you had any ideas on work ideas for children that age

4. Where do I go for chapter 2 of my work life that allows me to work from home on my schedule and most important get to really guide teach and help people?
