Dreams Around The World with Dan Johnston

You've only got one life, so why not design it around your own personality, dreams, and desires? I’m Dan Johnston and I do my best to help you become the best version of yourself all while creating an awesome life for you and those you love. Personally, I value freedom and experiences over money and things and even if the seas are a bit rougher, I’d rather be the Captain of my own ship.​ I, and the occasional guest, cover a range of topics from psychology and MBTI personality types (you know, that whole ENFP, INFP, INFJ, INTJ thing) to freelancing and entrepreneurship. Since I am location independent (a Canadian currently living in Prague), I also talk about travel and being a digital nomad from time to time.

A lot of my friends, as well as members of The Free Freelancer program, have all been asking me the same question lately - when will we be able to travel again?

The good news is that a lot of countries you would usually want to travel to depend a lot on tourism, so they will eventually have to open their borders in order to survive.

Surely, many things will be different and more complicated, like testing and wearing a mask, but I believe long-term travelling, including location-independent work and nomadic lifestyle, should not be a problem at all.

So, there is hope for current and future digital nomads and entrepreneurs!

If you're looking for a succinct, straight to the point, episode on procrastination, leave now, because this is not it. :)

I'm sharing my #1 trick dealing with procrastination lately.

If you're having trouble getting into something you should do, how do you know when you should keep pushing or when you should just give up and change your direction to something you think is more likely to work for you?

Last year while in Belgrade I had the privilege of meeting Andjelka and recording an inspiring interview about dealing with fear and building your own business.

She's definitely a rockstar when it comes to digital marketing and entrepreneurship.

Here we are in the, more or less, third month of this odd and unexpected corona/quarantine situation, and let's admit it - it is not easy, especially when it comes to our mental health.

Being an ENFP, at first I thought I would collapse from not being able to move and be active.

Instead, I adapted rather quickly and started to enjoy many aspects of it, by applying some simple, everyday tips and tricks.

Here we are again with the good old multi-level marketing story and my thoughts on it, thanks to my fellow Canadian Mike and his response to one of my previous episodes on the topic.

Mike may be right saying that I'm being too harsh in my hate of the entire multi-level marketing system, but that is because I look at all the things associated with it, numerous examples and failures...and therefore, I can draw some personal conclusions.

As far as I'm concerned, the MLM system has the same structure as different cults and populistic political parties, whose main tool is manipulation and indoctrination of people prone to such things.

Here is the link to the podcast I mentioned: 

The Missing Cryptoqueen

And John Oliver's video about multi-level marketing:

From bursts of anxiety that can drain your brain's energy and common mood swings, to poor health and unsuccessful career, negative by-products of ADHD can be numerous. 

The worst thing about it is that you are usually not aware of their true nature and you start doubting in yourself and your capabilities, instead of treating these by-products as a part of ADHD.

If you choose to avoid the medications, there are numerous other ways to treat adult ADHD and things you can do that may have a positive impact on your life.

Luckily, they are pretty easy and probably the things you actually WANT TO do anyway.

After all, who doesn't like hugs, handshakes, going out and running on the beach?

Getting diagnosed with a condition that has something to do with psychology is not that easy - we are all sometimes a bit bipolar or a bit ADHD.

Also, different countries have a completely different approach to adult ADHD - from the US where it is massively overdiagnosed, to some more laid-back cultures that don't pay much attention to it.

Here I share a lot of my personal experience with adult ADHD - how to recognize the symptoms, what kind of doctor to visit, is it possible to outgrow ADHD if you've had it as a child, and if medication eliminates only the negative traits while keeping the good ones.

Alex sent me an awesome voice message asking about how to keep yourself going in these uncertain times.

What should people put their trust in when...religion...governments...technology...don't work for us?

I'm sharing my perspective on how to deal with anxiety in our ever-changing world and keep yourself (relatively) sane. :)

How do you deal with haters when you're starting a business that's a bit more on what people would call the "woo-woo" side?

This can be intuitive healing, reiki, energy work or any type of business that many people find hard to wrap their heads around.

How can you believe in yourself, but also establish a successful business when faced with haters?

Should you ignore them or take some parts as constructive criticism?

This advice will help even if you're not specifically on the "woo-woo side" of things, but you're facing a lot of hate all the same.

As a little homework from the previous episode, I'm re-releasing this very important episode on human needs psychology.

Learn the psychology behind your own motivations so you can break bad habits, stop procrastinating, and end self-sabotage once and for all!

If you happen to be an ENFP or INFP, you may find this episode particularly insightful as it explains a lot of the "negative" behaviour patterns.

It will explain why as an ENFP or INFP your need for variety and change can lead to procrastination and other self-sabotaging behaviours.

Austin, who's an INFJ, sent me a question about how to decide on your career path if you are considering two or many careers.

Should you listen to your parents' career advice and prioritize a "safe" future? Or should you risk it and go with what you love, even though it doesn't really guarantee any kind of security?

How do INFJs handle a micromanaging boss at their job?

I'm sharing two ways you can deal with micromanagement and come out on top as a successful INFJ.
