Dreamtime is one of the most powerful tools I teach my clients for growing their business. Using nightly dreamtime can be your secret weapon to making more money, having better relationships, creative problem solving, decision making, healing yourself, or faster manifestations. I've been using dreamtime for the last 5 years - initially to be able to go on adventures even while I couldn't travel (because I was about to be a new dad) The global pandemic has enhance the powers of dreamtime because so many more people are sharing the same experience - it amplifies the collective unconscious I've had some amazing insights from dreams - which house to buy, which employee to hire, even co- dreaming with my son I've even had friends go on dates after guidance I got in dreamtime You can benefit from using your intent before bedtime - even if you usually never remember your dreams or don't have lucid dreaming experience.

It's easier to be epic than it is to be average. I want to tell you that it is easier to be world class, it's easier to do big, challenging, and amazing things than it is to simply be average. Look at people like Richard Branson. They jump out of an airplane before breakfast, and then they make a billion dollars. They make it look fun and easy- that could be what it would be like for you too! Because of our school system, we are all trained to simply know how it takes to pass. As a result, you think inside of the box- one that was set by other people for you. Until you start thinking outside the box, you'll never start thinking outside of the box. When you start thinking bigger and taking on much bigger challenges, you're going to get the fire and motivation inside your belly. You are going to get so much momentum. You will start seeing things happening, things that you never would have expected to happen if you stayed with the normal, average course. "The universe is conspiring to help you." - Paulo Coelho Take for example, Oliver White. He is a fishing guy who, all of a sudden, decided that he wanted to explore rivers and fish that have never been caught by fly fishing before. Not only that, he wanted to teach the local people how to create a sustainable lodge and a fishing industry for themselves. Nobody has ever thought of doing that before! But now, he is featured all over media. People are behind his mission, and he created so much momentum. There was a time I wanted to raise money for my birthday, so I approached the organizers of a local mansion party. I told them that I wanted them to host this party for me and raise money for charity. They said yes, and it was the biggest party that they had ever thrown, and the most successful for all of us. As soon as you start thinking unreasonably - outside the box - amazing things start happening for you. While everybody else is competing for the same average slice of pie. My friend Chase Boehringer just set the world record for highest motorcycle. He had more than 75 people and businesses who sponsored this expedition. He asked them for help, and they were on board. They were excited to support this big, world record project. How can you start thinking bigger? If you have been thinking average your whole life, start with this line of thinking: What would I do if I had the support of celebrities, or billionaires, or all my friends? What would I do if I knew that I couldn't fail? What would I do if somebody gave me a hundred million dollars to make this thing a reality? What would I do if I stopped being reasonable? It takes some time to change your thinking. It takes time asking the right questions to open your thinking. It's a creative process. Even then when you come up with a big, exciting, scary, audacious idea, your ego is going to tell you not to do it to try to keep you safe. The Australians have this thing called "tall poppy syndrome". It's going to tell you not to grow above the crowd or you will get chopped off. Keep your head down, work hard, and stay in your lane. This is backwards thinking - we all know people who work hard for a long time and have anything to show for it. And this used to be me. So, start changing the questions you are asking to yourself. What happens if you don't start taking big and bold actions? You are just going to be right where you are. More and more people are going to try and do the same thing competing for scarce resources, and trying to be average. You are going to lose momentum and run out of steam. Your business is going to hit these plateaus. How long will you be able to sustain that? You are going to be limited by the constraints of being average. Start being unreasonable. Start practicing thinking outside the box. Start changing the questions that you ask for yourself so that you can expand the challenges that you can take on. Go from zero to one,
“Really asking yourself 'what do I want?' is super important.” – Darcy Gaechter Today’s guest on the Art of Adventure podcast is the athlete, kayaker, author, and businesswoman, Darcy Gaechter. Darcy is the first woman to kayak the Amazon source to sea. She shares this great adventure in her book, Amazon Woman. In this episode, Darcy shares how she got into kayaking and where her constant “yes” to whatever she is offered has brought her. She tells us how she started- from her business, getting fired from it, and eventually getting back, to her taking the alternative path and finding true happiness in kayaking at the same time breaking free from the pressure of conformity. Darcy gets to share with us her the struggles and preparation leading to their 148-day epic adventure kayaking through Amazon with her boyfriend Don and their client, Midge, who himself has an interesting background. Darcy also tells us how writing the book was the hard part, and she gives us insights as to why this was so.

Quotes: “Part of this whole process for me was trying to force myself to be comfortable with my life because I am happy about it and my only unhappiness from my life choices stems from what I perceive to be other people's judgments of it and so I have been making a real effort not to worry about them.” – Darcy Gaechter“I prioritize my own happiness.” – Darcy Gaechter“If you know what you want, you should consider yourself lucky.” – Darcy Gaechter“Really asking yourself what do I want is super important.” – Darcy Gaechter“Just really working hard on finding peace with what you want to do and chasing after it, is going to be the most fulfilling way to go through life because if you do everything you are supposed to do and at the end of the day realize that you didn't do one thing that you wanted, it's not going to make for a happier fulfilling life.” – Darcy Gaechter“At the end of the line, if I can say like I follow my true path even though I let others down because I didn't do what they expected I would do, I think I would be happier for it.” – Darcy Gaechter “I encourage you to figure out what it is that you want and chase after it at all costs” – Darcy Gaechter Continue the Adventure: Darcy Gaechter Facebook @darcygaechter Small World Adventures Facebook @smallworldadv Kayak the Amazon Other Episodes You Will Love: Paul Kuthe | Sea Kayak Surfing Pioneer Johan Ernst Nilson | The Activist Adventurer Sean Conway | Adventurer Extraordinaire | Adventure is a State of Mind

What are you being asked to do at this time? Sit with this question every day.” - The Beings of Light“This is an opportune time to step up and to stand in your power.” - The Beings of Light“Let go of your small thinking.

Sometime I can't believe Billionaires will go on a podcast with a shirtless guy on the cover... We are celebrating Episode 300! When I first started this podcast, I said I was going to make 300 episodes. Now, it has been about six years, and I can hardly believe that it's finally here! What I have Learned From 300 Episodes My identity and the identity of this podcast have been intertwined when I first came up with the name, The Art of Adventure. It started with the blog. I talked about it with people and they started associating me as "Mr. Adventure". That forced me to become more adventurous. This show has evolved and progressed. Back when I started, I was trying to learn how to travel the world, live abroad, and earn a living- basically live a life of adventure. The podcast started with me, interviewing my friends, and eventually developed a cohesive model and created a well-defined show with guests who talk about adventure, metaphysics, peak performance, and business. In the beginning, I did not really know how to interview, how to produce a podcast, and how to find the right guest. I had to learn as I went. If you track the changes in the world and the changes in my life, and you overlay that on the podcast, there are all these different phases of life that I experienced while we had this continuity of a podcast through 300 episodes. You might be able to see where I'm coming from as the host, in what questions I ask, and the kind of guests I'm bringing on the show. What is cool is that I don't really know what I'd get from these podcasts. I have taken so many ideas from guests. I am now a business coach, because of the influence I had from a guest. From a cycling coach, to a podcast coach, I finally decided on expanding to be a business coach. A guest also suggested that I turn the ideas I get from the podcast and turn them into a book, which, eventually became the Superconductors. Right now, I am working on a book with adventure stories, taking some of the greatest and wildest adventure stories from the podcast. I have grown my Instagram account from ideas I got from guests, too. I also learned to ask more and more audacious things and make "unreasonable requests" in asking for big things. These guests have brought so many ideas that I have incorporated in my life, travels, business, family, and relationships. It has been such an amazing access point, as the host. I hope it has been as well, for you, because when you apply these ideas, such big and dramatic things happen for you and your life. The really important part is that you don't have to get it perfect, but you do need to go and try it. You can learn these concepts, but until you go and try using them, you don't really know the knowledge, or understand how everything works. Right until you go through the experience, you can't ever know what it's like until you do it. Now I can say, I'm a podcaster and I’m not planning on stopping. This is one of the best parts of my business and of my life. I am motivated to continue improving the show and getting these guests on. I want to take this a step further and look at what kind of collaborations and win-win scenarios I can create with my guests. Most of my guests have some mission trying to make the world a better place in their own unique way. If we approach with the idea of how can we co-create together and look at creating win-win scenarios, then I think that is really what is going to help progress our planet, us as humanity, and really looking at how I can help and serve other people. The podcast shapes my identity, but my identity is what allows me to keep podcasting.

The metaphysics, which is the spiritual side and the newest pillar. Then there's the business skills, where we dig
