Act On Your Dream! > Success Interviews
Why success interviews?
It's simple, really. I like reading about people who have identified what they want to do, you know, "who they want to be when they grow up." Some people know this when they're still a young child. Others of us struggle our whole lives trying to decide who we want to be and how we want to get there.
Some of the people you'll find interviewed here may not know who they're going to be when they grow up, but they know what they enjoy doing in the meantime.
I'm assuming you like to read success stories, too. Otherwise, why would you have found your way to this page?
You don't have to live in a big mansion, drive a hand-built car, or own your own jet to be successful. Yes, those are signs of success, at least one aspect of it. There are other forms of success, and each of us can choose how we define success for ourselves.
Last year, for example, while I was battling cancer, I considered it a major success if I could get out of bed and go sit on the front porch. Now that I'm better, I expect more from myself.
You don't have to achieve all your goals to be successful. As long as you're acting on your dream and making good, steady progress, you are already a success and you are becoming more successful the more you work on it.
People are achieving success at a variety of levels while acting on their dreams.
Success comes in all forms and I enjoy interviewing people who are working on a variety of projects, businesses, and personal goals.
The interviews you'll find here are taken from private discussions I've had with people who are happy with what they're doing and the direction in which they're moving. I call that success.
This is a new feature of this website, and I expect to feature a number of success interviews here. Some will be the result of a short, in-person discussion. Others will be the result of a long email exchange that may take days or weeks to complete and which will be condensed into what I hope you'll consider an interesting interview.
We may even do some interviews on video and share them with you.
June, 2011: Our first in a series of success interviews features my friend Joan Adams. I met Joan several years ago when we were both new authors on Squidoo.com. Over the years, I've learned more about her and like her even more as time goes by.
