When you really want something, find the fire within and go for it. Whether you want to create memorable performances or inspire life-changing journeys for others, recent guests on The Carlos Watson Show have advice on how to pursue your goals with confidence and passion. Inspired by our friends at American Family Insurance, we explore what it means to dream fearlessly and tackle challenges. How? By finding strength in our differences, staying present, enjoying the moment and giving 100% effort. Here’s some advice from a few of our guests on embracing the journey — and the moments along the way.
The first transgender woman of color to appear in Sports Illustrated, Leyna Bloom has inspiring advice for anyone looking to achieve their dreams. “It’s a balance of being strong, but it’s also a balance of being patient,” she says. She advocates for keeping focused on the path ahead and tuning in to your own “unique and special music.”
Finding contentment in ordinary moments is how actor Tony Hale stays present in the extremes of his career and in the pursuit of his dreams. And when you achieve those dreams? “Find as much excitement and as much joy” in those moments as you do in the simple pleasures of everyday life, he says.
“Dreams are never-ending” — that’s one of musical icon Jody Watley’s mantras for life. The superstar performer says that once you hit that milestone or make that achievement, just keep going. Keep envisioning new goals, wishes and hopes, she says. Embracing new dreams and moving forward is “one of the most beautiful things of life.”
“Don’t hold anything back.” That’s actor John Stamos’ advice for achieving your goals in life. Focusing on the moment, treating people kindly and pouring himself into the task is how the iconic star landed his role on General Hospital and then later on stage with The Beach Boys. When you really want something, he says, “give it your all.”
