Risking the unknown, stepping out of your comfort-zone and truly going after the things you want in life are the focus of this Podcast. I am Brandon, an aspiring musician/actor/entertainer who wants you to become a fearless rockstar in the pursuit of your best self. I will share all I have learned on my own personal journey after quitting a toxic day job, fumbling through tons of self-help books, life-coaches, wizardry (just kidding), and pursuing my own dreams, all in hopes that you can learn from my mistakes and ultimately gain the courage to go out and make your own.

    I'll Be Here Awhile

    I'll Be Here Awhile

    It’s the 60th episode of the Dare to Fail podcast, and the saga of 2020 continues on. It’s been the hardest year of my life, and I’m sure it has for you as well. We’ve all been hurting and are tired of it all. But there’s hope, and in this season 5 finale episode I’ll share with you the story of Terry Fox and an excerpt from Matthew McConaughey’s new book Green Lights that I believe exemplify what we all must do—make the choice. Also, and as a special thank you for all the people who’ve supported this project, I’ve included a cover song that I believe is a bit apropos for the times. Thank you all so much and I look forward to Season 6 in January of 2021. Let’s put 2020 behind use and build something better for us all.

    Love Yourself or Die

    Love Yourself or Die

    For the past 10 years I’ve been hiding behind shame and fear over my self-image. Specifically, since I was 26 years old, I’ve attempted to hide the fact that I’ve been losing my hair, using every method possible to try and stop it. But today, I’m choosing to face my fears, and share with you my story in hopes that you can learn from my mistakes and make the better choice—unconditional self-love. Having a negative self-image is a terrible place to be in life and can lead you to doing expensive and downright dangerous things, as you will learn from this episode of the Dare to Fail Podcast. Time to get vulnerable.

    It's Better Than You Think

    It's Better Than You Think

    Regardless of all the things that you may feel are missing in your life, it’s better than you think. Recalling one of the most frightening stories of my life, I’ll make the case that sometimes it’s the things that didn’t happen that shape us the most and can also be our biggest source of gratitude. You too, I believe, will have a realization that you’re incredibly lucky to be alive and that your life is much better than you think it is. It’s always a matter of perspective, not circumstance, that dictates our joy, happiness, and direction. You go the direction you face, so let’s face our North Star and help each other move forward.

    Make Your Own Peace

    Make Your Own Peace

    “Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass. It’s about learning to dance in the rain.” This quote from British author Vivian Greene should be the world’s mantra for 2020! It doesn’t seem to matter how hard with try to control our lives from uncertainty; life finds a way to throw us a constant stream of challenges. And instead of waiting for the “storms” to pass, we must find our own unique ways of making progress during the craziness—dancing in the rain. We cannot wait around for someone or something external to give us peace, happiness, or joy in this life. We must give it to ourselves. If not, we may never experience it. This episode of the Dare to Fail Podcast is dedicated to finding a way to your own inner-peace even while the storm rages on.

    Change Your Story, Change Your Life

    Change Your Story, Change Your Life

    Until we have an empowering life story in our minds, all of our efforts towards improvement will be sabotaged. You simply cannot become more than what you think of yourself, and often times we develop self-worth issues from the stories we have formed through our childhood experiences or life traumas. No more! Those old, tired, broken, and false stories that have been holding you back can be eradicated today! Let’s dive into creating a new narrative that will change your life in ways you could only have once imagined.

Uplifting, simple, but profound advice from Brandon here!

Being a health professional and needing to educate and motivate others myself for a living, I often need to look to others for inspiration and sound advice. Dare to Fail offers thorough and helpful, yet not over spoken, life lessons. I love that no matter the difficulty of the topic, Brandon does a great job at always finding some sort of lesson or bright side of a negative or challenging situation. Love this podcast!

My favorite quote is by Earl Nightingale-"Never give up on a dream because the time it will take to accomplish it, the time will pass anyway." Very fitting for this podcast. Dare to Fail is: Inspiring, Reflective, and Relatable. Thank you for putting more positivity into this world :)
