Next Time You Disagree With Your Parents Try This !
Big Dreamers, I want you to think back to a time when your parents asked you to do something that you did not want to do. One when they said it was really important that you complete that task, no matter what. Do you have a memory in mind?
Well, in today’s episode, Sophia recalls a story about her older sister, Eva - who I am sure you all remember! - and how she handled such a situation. While it is always good to listen to your parents, it is also never too early to learn how to speak up and assert yourself – as long as you remain respectful, of course! In this episode, our story will show how the strong-willed Eva spoke up to reach a compromise with our parents, with an end-result that left everyone involved very happy. Sophia also shares the one lesson she personally learned from this experience and how important it is to stand up for yourself.
We hope you enjoy this episode and that you learn more about being brave and the power of persuasion! See you in the next episode, Big Dreamers!
How To Break Bad Habits (And Build Good Ones!)
This week's episode is inspired by a famous quote from Aristotle, "We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence is not an act but a habit."
A few weeks ago, Sophia and Olga were spending time in the playground, as they do very regularly. Sophia is a master at climbing the monkey bars, with her own unique process! On this particular day, however, Olga asked Sophia to try a new way, to mix things up! Sophia, naturally, had a hard time.
So in this episode, Sophia shares what she learned from this experience. They talk in length about habits -- what they are, the habit loop, breaking bad ones and how to build ones that are for keeps!
And as anyone who has made a habit of listening to this podcast already knows, Big Dreamers, we truly hope you learn a thing or two from this episode. Enjoy!

3 Big Lies Grownups Tell That Destroy Big Dreams!
We are living in times where social media plays a key role in the current generation's development. We barely remember the time when cell phones, the internet, Amazon, YouTube and Netflix were not available!
In today's episode, Sophia and Olga talk about the three common lies that we start believing if we consume a lot of social media, and why being aware, which means being equipped with the remedy against this poison, is an absolute must.
Our challenge for you this week, big dreamers is whenever you catch yourself or an adult constantly saying the phrase, I don’t have time, or I can't, or I don't deserve this, stop them or yourself immediately. Better yet, write these down, and say the opposite out loud like I'll find a way, I can, I deserve this. Start the abundance mindset, and tell yourself that life is happening for me and not against me. Tell us all about it at our FB and IG pages, @dreambigpodcast. Enjoy the episode!
