In Episode 2759 of The Strong Life Project Podcast, Shaun O’Gorman delves into a somewhat counterintuitive concept: the importance of keeping your biggest dreams a secret. With his deep-seated experience in high-performance coaching, stress management, and leadership development, Shaun argues that revealing your most ambitious goals can sometimes derail you rather than propel you forward.
Shaun starts the episode by discussing how oversharing your dreams can open the door to various kinds of feedback that might not be in your best interest. He emphasizes that even well-meaning advice or casual comments from friends and family can subtly influence your mindset, causing self-doubt or shifting your focus away from your original vision.
Building on his own journey from a Police tactical K9 handler to a leadership and high-performance consultant, Shaun opens up about the trials and tribulations he faced, including his battles with PTSD and depression. He uses these experiences to explain that while it’s crucial to have a support system, there is a fine line between seeking support and becoming dependent on external validation. He argues that finding this balance is key to maintaining the internal drive needed to achieve your most significant aspirations.
The episode also provides actionable advice on setting healthy boundaries, both emotionally and psychologically. Shaun talks about creating an “inner circle” of trusted individuals who genuinely support your vision and can offer constructive guidance, while also emphasizing the importance of developing a robust sense of self that is independent of others’ opinions.
