What would you choose to do if you had to completely shift your life? Would you focus on your true calling? All too often our jobs get in the way of our dreams. This is a shame because what you do for work has all the potential to align with your higher calling. But it’s up to you to intentionally create this.
Today, I’m thrilled to be joined by Ira Davis, one of the original Studio Sherpas students. As a former Marine Corps drill instructor, the founder and CEO of DreamDiver and IV I II Studios, Ira works to help people discover their stories and inspire others. His companies are designed to help aspiring pioneers, visionaries, and world-changers discover their purpose and dive into their dreams to impact the world.
As filmmakers, we are uniquely positioned to share our vision with the world. At the same time, we often get sidetracked creating for others. There’s nothing inherently wrong with this. We all have to earn an income and keep our businesses running. However, ignoring your own visions means that you risk sharing with the world with your own special vision and genius.
Ira passionately explains what happens when you create from the soul, rather than from some material need. If you commit to this, you’ll find that your work resonates deeper with the right audiences. It will lead to more fulfilling opportunities down the road.
Throughout this conversation, we reevaluate what success means. Being able to put food on the table is one type. So is fulfilling the mission that you feel called to do. Ira explains how these two don’t need to be exclusive of each other. Turning your dream into a livelihood isn’t easy, but the rewards are beyond priceless
