Kary Oberbrunner Day Job to Dream Job

Are you stuck in a job and so badly want to get out? Do you dread each day you have to go to work? Life is too short to be doing work you hate. We live in a world today where it’s easier to create your dream job. Yes it’s true! Five years ago I wouldn’t have been able to create an iPhone app. It’s easier than ever to publish your own book and keep more of the money through Amazon Kindle. A job used to require being in an office, but now it just takes a computer and internet and that work can be done anywhere in the world.

I really wanted to get Kary on the podcast because he helps individuals find their purpose in life. He helps guide them from escaping their day job to going after their dream job.

He not only wrote about how to do that, but he went through his own escape. He was in a typical job and on his way for a promotion when it just didn’t feel right for him. While many people would think he’d be crazy for leaving a great job, he still did. Now he’s a writer, speaker, and coach working with individuals and organizations on reaching their true potential.

In this interview, I ask him about making that transition. He shares so much great stuff!

A must listen if you want to escape your day job prison.

There’s not amount of books you can read, podcasts you can listen to, praying and hoping to change your life without one very important ingredient. That’s taking action.

I’m not talking about doing a little bit. I’m taking about taking massive action. The type that goes on for days, weeks, months, and even years.

No one in life that has their dream life has achieved it without taking massive action. It’s true! Ask anyone and they can tell you what they had to do.

Too many people wish for a better life, but are so afraid to not only take action, but to take that first step. They’re fear failure. They hope for the easy way out They hope it’s painless.

It won’t be and it will never be.

I used to be THAT guy. The one that feared failing again. The one that wanted the perfect outcome with very little work. Too me too many years to finally wise up, but I finally did.

Join me on today’s podcast as I talk about the importance of taking action.

Get Busy Living Podcast 24 How Gratitude Can change your life

How often do you stop and appreciate what you do have? I know sometimes it’s hard. You’re busy. You have a million things going through our mind.The last thing you do is to take time to be thankful for what you do have in this busy world.

You might also feel lost right now. Your life isn’t going the way you want. You constantly complain. You focus on what you don’t have in life.

You might not be realizing that the thoughts you constantly have about wishing for a better life or complaining about what’s not going well is holding you back. You keep that cycle of negativity going.

It’s time to start getting you to change your mindset. You can do that by practicing gratitude. Gratitude isn’t something you should just do once a year at Thanksgiving. It should be as common as brushing your teeth.

It’s scientifically proven! Research has shown that those who practice gratitude have less stress, better health, better relationships, and more wealth. I know you would love those!

Even though you think everything in your life is going wrong right now, there are still things you can be thankful for.

What’s great about practicing gratitude is that it doesn’t take very long, it’s completely free, and when done consistently it will change your life. It has helped me and I still continue to be thankful for so many things.

If you keep thinking about what you don’t have, you’ll never have more. If you appreciate what you do have now, you’ll get more.

Enjoy this podcast! It could be life changing.

Let me ask you a question. If you had a goal of (insert your goal), what would be the first thing you do? You’d probably figure out what steps you need to take. Right? Well that’s not a bad way to start, but it’s not the best way.

The problem with just following the steps to achieving your goal is the baggage you carry along with it. You might have a goal to start your own business, but the baggage you’re carrying is years of failures, low self confidence, self-doubt, bad habits, and a bad attitude. You’re dragging yourself down before you even try to begin.

Then you do begin and you’re working hard, but you’re wondering why you’re not seeing success. Next thing you know you quit. You’re back to where you started. Maybe you’re worse off because you feel like a failure.

You continue this cycle with any new goal you try. You just don’t know why you never have success.

In today’s podcast, I want to share with you what you’re missing. What you don’t need is only a plan of action. What you need to do first is to become the type of person that would achieve those types of goals.

You need to change on the inside first if you truly want to see change on the outside. The common mistake is trying to change on the outside, hoping that it changes you on the inside.

When I learned and began doing it, I began seeing huge changes on the outside. More importantly, I had changed as a person first so that I could get the results I wanted on the outside.

Why Not You? Get Busy Living Podcast episode 22

Have you ever asked yourself this question? Why not you? Why can’t you change your life? Why can’t you achieve your dreams? Other people from all walks of life have been able to so why can’t you?

We often doubt our own abilities. We see someone with success and immediately we think that they just got lucky, we’re not that smart, or they must have a lot of money to begin with.

Most of the time that’s not the case.

Instead of thinking those beliefs that will hold us back, it’s better to think “why not us?” If they can do it, then why can’t we as well?

This blog, my podcast, and my online business are proof to me that believing “Why not me?” at least gave myself a chance to succeed. I used to have doubt that I could really create the life I wanted. Others were doing it and I was jealous of them. I just didn’t have much hope it was possible for me.

I had to change my beliefs just to give myself a fighting chance and that’s what I did. I saw others doing what I wanted to do and thought “Why not me?” If they could do it, I could do it as well.

That’s the topic of today’s podcast. I hope you enjoy it and get you to start believing in yourself even when you can’t see the finish line ahead yet.

Get Busy Living Podcast 21

Who do you spend the most time with? Who are your conversations with on and offline most of the day? If you haven’t thought much about it, then I suggest you start to think about it because your future depends on it.

Jim Rohn said we are the average of the five people we spent he most time with. He could tell our wealth, health, and quality of our relationships just be knowing more about those five people.

We don’t pay much attention to who we spend the most time with. Sometimes it’s not our choice, but sometimes we do have a choice. Imagine hanging out with co-workers after work and everyone is talking about how much they hate their job, or how stupid the boss was today. You’re going to join in on the conversation so you won’t be left out of the group.

How will you feel afterwards? You’re going to remember how much you hate your job, how your life sucks, how you have these big dreams, but haven’t done anything with them. It’s one negative thought after another.

If you truly want to be a better version of yourself and reach those big dreams you have, you can’t be spending time with people who don’t share the same dreams as you.

Like I share to on my newsletter, you can’t be an eagle if you always hang out with chickens. Soon enough you’ll believe that you’re just a chicken.

In episode 21, I talk about the importance of choosing who you spend time with. I give advice on how to handle people you can’t remove from your life like a family member or relative.
