When I look back at my life, I see all the events—good or not so good—that have happened in my life as pieces of a chain that were connected together to take me to where I am right now. If one of these pieces were missing, I would not be at this stage in my life. I call some of these events the turning points of my life, and definitely, founding Dream Achievers Academy has been one of those turning points.
Back in 2009, despite my personal and professional success in the engineering and project management fields, I still felt that something was missing inside me; I felt that I was not truly happy inside. I felt that I was not living and leading on purpose. I knew what I was supposed to do, but I was delaying it all the time. I thought I was not yet ready for growth, but in fact, I was standing in my own way.
In May 2009, I attended a one-day leadership webcast by Maximum Impact. During that one-day seminar, several great speakers talked about leadership and success, including John C. Maxwell, Liz Murray, and Mark Sanborn. Maxwell talked about his new book Put Your Dreams to the Test. That day, John Maxwell and Liz Murray inspired me to not delay my dreams any longer. They inspired me to own my dreams and take immediate action toward achieving them. And that was the fuel for starting something new and taking massive action toward fulfilling my purpose.
My desire for adding value to people and helping them grow and achieve their dreams and visions motivated me to found Dream Achievers Academy in December 2009.
Our vision? To passionately add value to people around the world and inspire them to realize and fulfill their dreams.
Our mission? To simply serve humanity and the divine.
As soon as I started the business, I was exposed to all kinds of mentorship and coaching by best-selling authors and experts such as Robin Sharma, Janet and Chris Attwood, Marcia Wieder, Brendon Burchard, T. Harv Eker, and John C. Maxwell. I began to notice that the more I give, the more I receive in return and the more I grow as a result.
Since establishment of Dream Achievers Academy I have been much happier and more successful. I have developed several products including my best-selling and award winning book, Leadership Soup, and served many through my writings, trainings, coaching, and speaking. I definitely call myself a Dream Achiever!
What about you? Are you a Dream Achiever? If yes, I congratulate you for believing in yourself and accomplishing your dreams and mission. If not yet, I hope that through our top quality services and products at Dream Achievers Academy you will become a true Dream Achiever soon.
Remember to act now as tomorrow might be too late. The train of life does not wait for those who are late!
To your success,
Kamran Akbarzadeh, PhD
