Your Dreams Are Not a Joke: It’s Time to Dream Big Again & 3 Ways to Get Started


The Mel Robbins Podcast


Listen to the Mel Robbins Podcast twice per week, every Monday and Thursday, to achieve the life of your dreams.


THIS is the pep talk you need to hear right now.

I’m showing up with a level of intensity in a way you’ve never heard me before.

We are talking about you and your big dreams.

No matter what you're going through in life, your dreams are alive and well and they are waiting for you to wake up and turn toward them.

If you’re not ready for some Mel Robbins inspirational firepower, bookmark this for another day. Because I’m not f’ing around today.

If you’re done with feeling like you’re doing the same sh*t day in and day out…

If you’re tired of your excuses…

Or if you're like Barbara, who you will meet in this episode, and you have given up on your dreams because they haven’t materialized yet…

This may be the most important 50 minutes of your life.

There is a flame inside of you that is still flickering.

Today, we are going to throw gasoline on and reignite that fire.

You’re ready for this today. I know you are.

And more than any other episode, I can't wait to hear how you’re feeling and what you’re doing after you listen to this one.
