How To Dream Bigger with John Strelecky

There are people who seem to go after their dreams with relentless tenacity. This week’s guest is one of these people. A world traveler and bestselling author, John Strelecky walked away from his corporate job nearly two decades ago and has never looked back. Along the way, he’s learned a few things about how to win at this game of life. He shares these insights in his books, but also in this week’s episode.

In our conversation, we discuss:

  • How to become comfortable with uncertainty;
  • Ways to overcome fear;
  • Overcoming obstacles and finding points of flow;
  • Getting clear on your vision, even if you have no idea how to get there.

I have been so excited to share this interview with you. You can listen here:


John Strelecky is a #1 bestselling inspirational author. His books have been translated into over forty-two languages and sold more than six million copies worldwide. They have won bestseller of the year awards five times and collectively spent more than eight hundred weeks on bestseller lists, including more than two hundred and fifty weeks in the #1 spot. John’s entry into the world of writing began following a life changing experience when he was thirty-three years old. From that, he was inspired to sit down and tell the story shared in his first book – The Cafe on the Edge of the World. Within a year after its release, word of mouth support from readers had spread that book across the globe – inspiring people on every continent, including Antarctica. It has been a #1 Bestseller in multiple countries. John went on to write many other books including two sequels to “The Cafe on the Edge of the World”, the “Big Five for Life” series of books, and more. When he isn’t writing, John is often outdoors in his kayak, riding a surfboard, playing beach volleyball, or traveling the world with his family. Their longest adventure was a year-long backpacking trip to see animals in the wilds of Africa, Malaysia and Australia. Learn more at www.johnstrelecky.com.
