Do these phrases sound familiar?

“I’m too old”
“I don’t have the time”
“I don’t have the money”
“I don’t even know who I am or what I want to do”

They should. These are a few of the reasons people I work with give as to why they can’t do what they love at work. And they are left working in dissatisfying jobs for years, which increases their work stress. And that is bad.

Medical evidence has shown that work stress can cause or worsen many health problems, including:

  • Chronic neck and back pain
  • Headaches
  • Frequent colds
  • Stomach ulcers
  • Heartburn
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome
  • Heart attacks
  • Strokes
  • Asthma
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Alcohol and tobacco use
  • High blood pressure
  • And many others…

After treating these health issues for years as an Emergency physician, I began to wonder if there was anything people could do about their work stress or was it an inevitable side effect of working in society.

Everyone knows that work is hard, drab, boring and tolerable at best. In fact, work has come to mean the opposite of “fun”, as demonstrated in the following conversation between friends:

Jeff: “Do you want to help me clean out the garage this weekend?”
Steven: “That sounds like a lot of work. I have other plans.”


But what if work didn’t have to be painful? What if it could be exciting, interesting and dare I say it, fun? I can hear what you are saying. “That isn’t possible, Sam.”

Well, I thought so too at one point. That is why I undertook a research project to see if there were people out there who loved their work and were enjoying the process.

Three-and-a-half years and 200 interviews later, I am happy to report that there are! They are in the minority in society but they are a growing segment of people who refuse to accept the status quo of working for 40 years of doing something you dislike or don’t believe in. They are in effect saying that there must be a better way and more and more people are finding it for themselves.

Indeed, old (false) paradigms do fall hard:

  • “The earth is flat” – debunked 1492
  • “Humans cannot go to the moon” – debunked 1969
  • “You cannot live your dreams at work” – debunked early 21st century

The people featured in the book, Live Your dreams: Doctor’s Orders, are not extraordinary people. They are like you and me in many ways, each with their own set of fears and weaknesses. In the book you will find people who are young and old, male and female, married, single or divorced, blue collar and white collar, employee, employer and self-employed. You are sure to find someone similar to yourself in this book. The biggest difference is that they were able to find ways to overcome self-limiting beliefs to go on and live their dreams at work.

Listen to what a few have to say about their Dream Career:

These people were able to overcome each of the statements you read at the beginning of this report. Every person I interviewed in their Dream Career overcame one or more of the following limiting beliefs:

  • “I’m too old”
  • “I don’t have the time”
  • “I’m not smart enough”
  • “I don’t have the money”
  • “I don’t even know who I am or what I want to do”
  • and more…

Every one of the above “myths” is challenged by real people in the book, Live your Dreams: Doctor’s Orders. In it you will read about people like:

Scott McDiarmid, who proved he wasn’t too old at 40 to completely change direction and careers.

Charles Marcus will show you how he overcame his stuttering and accompanying low self-esteem to enter and succeed as a professional speaker of all things!

Brent Rogers, who felt the pressure to find a better career when the bank he had dedicated himself to, for twenty three years changed the rules of the game on him. They slowly removed his flexibility and left him with administrative bureaucratic work. He didn’t give up though. You will find how he transitioned to his Dream Career.

and 37 more stories of how people overcame real challenges to move onto to their Dream Careers.

    “…Samuel Gerstein walks his talk. As you will see from his personal story which begins the book, he was feeling the effects of work stress himself several years ago. His own journey of self discovery led him to his dream of helping others find theirs. I believe this book will inspire you to do the same. Read it if you are feeling lost, or if your work has little meaning. Read it if you are dissatisfied with or hate your job. Read it if you have given up hope that the majority of your adult life spent at work will ever be enjoyable or fulfilling.

    One of the best ways to learn anything new is through the use of role models. Sam Gerstein has provided us with forty powerful role models in people who overcame their fears and all the reasons why they ‘couldn’t,’ and through dogged determination and creative resourcefulness found a way to achieve their dream.”
