Are you living the life YOU want to live, or the life somebody else wants you to live? It's not usually either/or. There's usually a bit of both. The question is, do you want to move the needle so that it points a little bit more towards you living the life you want? Life is always changing. The future is always uncertain. How equipped are you to navigate your journey so that you are living more mindfully and intentionally? In this episode of The Dream Highway Podcast Steve Pederson takes a look at this idea of, not getting a crystal clear vision of your entire life, but simply getting a clearer vision for your life as it unfolds step by step in front of you. 
Think you don’t have a message? You don’t have to be a speaker, author, podcaster or coach to have and share a message that someone needs to hear. Take Kerry Heaps for example.

Podcast.

What is the life script you've been handed? We've all been given one. Living according to someone else's script "makes you susceptible to going through the motions of life rather than truly living life and doing what you really love to do." In this interview with healing artist and holistic life coach Lori Pino we discuss the opportunity we have to live intentionally and develop our own script, or "flip the script" as they say. We also talk about her book Haight Words and her mission to bring light to how we treat anyone who seems different from us. 
In this episode of Steve's Stories I use the metaphor of playing in a rock and roll cover band and what that can teach us about our fears stopping us from going after our dreams.
