I know that many of us know the importance of defining and living our purpose, but how many of us really do the work required to define and live our purposes?  I believe that it can be challenging to prevent the inertia from setting in because we are creatures of habit.  We get comfortable with our current situation and year in and year out we just keep doing the same things and wonder why things have not changed.

I know from personal experience that embracing our fears and getting out of our comfort zone requires grit, determination and a willingness to change.  We need to embrace change and do it with zest.

If you are willing to take some risk and step out of your comfort zone as you set your goals for 2018, then this podcast recording with Craig Filek the founder of Purpose Mapping is especially for you.

In my interview with Craig Filek, we discuss his unique process for helping his clients define their life purpose and values.   Craig teaches a course and coaches his clients to not only defining their purpose but living it.  If you want to clarify your strength, embrace your fears, ignite your potential and align your actions with your purpose then you want to listen to this great podcast on Purpose Mapping.

I know that personally throughout my career I have made changes and taken course corrections. If you are like many people you may want to make a career course correction but you are uncertain about what your new career path might look like.  There are obviously lots of decision one must make, but in my interview with author Tim Cole, he outlines a great set of guiding principles that I believe would be great to follow.

In Tim’s new book “The Compass Solution” you are 4 P’s which stand for 1) Personal Accountability 2) People 3) Process 4) Perspective.  These main principles are important guideposts for navigating the path to a better career. As Tim states “It is your performance, your goals, and your vision for your life that will dictate your future.  For the remainder of your career, it will be the one thing you can count on and that you can set your course around.  Nothing else and no one else.”

I ask this questions to the listeners of this podcast.  If not now then when?  When will you make that all important decision to make the career change you have been thinking about but afraid to take?   Don’t let your fears hold you back.   Use this podcast and Tim’s book as the tools that can provide you with the courage and strength to make the change.  Allow the important information in the book to be your guide to a better career and life.

I recently had the pleasure of interviewing Alan Weiss the co-author with Marshall Goldsmith of a new book entitled “Lifestorming-Creating Meaning and Achievement in Your Career and Life“.  This is a practical handbook for becoming the person you want to be.  You will discover what it takes to redesign your life, friends, behaviors, and goals in order to move closer to your goals.

Alan and I discuss the evolutionary journey, and a very important question: To what extent is your journey one of internal control, and to what extent one of external control?  I believe this concept alone is one of the most important elements that one must master if they are going to master their life.  As Alan states are you taking a “random walk” through life, or do you have high control and are one of those people that creates your world, or are you mutually creating your world.  No matter your purview of your world, it would be best to have high control if you want to make something of yourself.

If you want to change behavior, Alan states that most studies have found that it’s very difficult to merely change poor behavior.  It’s much more effective to substitute a more positive behavior. Change for its own sake makes little sense.  The key is to determine the salutary result that makes the change worthwhile.

I hope you enjoy the lively and engaging dialogue with Alan Weiss the co-author of “Lifestorming-Creating Meaning and Achievement in Your Career and Life“.  If you want to learn more about the book you can click here to be directed to the book website page.  If you want to learn more about Alan Weiss please click here or Marshall Goldsmith click here.

In this interview, I had the chance to speak with author and speaker Philip McKernan.  We spoke about his newest book, “Rich on Paper Poor on Life.”  Philip’s book explains how you should stop living the way people expect and live the successful life you want.

Philip has spoken around the world about the importance of overcoming personal obstacles and creating the confidence to believe in yourself.  His soul focus is to help people create a meaningful life while also making money.

Pilar Gerasimo is someone that I will alway call my friend.  While we don’t speak to one another often, she is the kind of person that when you once meet her you bond almost immediately.  I respect Pilar for all that she is doing to make our world a better place to live and connect with others.  Pilar is the “Founding Editor of Experience Life Magazine“.  If you are not a subscriber, I would recommend that you seriously check out the magazine through the link provided.

In my interview with Pilar we speak about her course entitled “Refine Your Life” which can be accessed through the Entheos Academy .

It is the beginning of a New Year and many of us are focused on our vision, goals and attempting to figure out how we are going to attain our new life plan. In my interview with Pilar we discuss the important elements of your personal growth, which include purpose, vision, values, goals, obstacles and how to manage in the crazy fast paced world we live in.

As Pilar starts off “Refine Your Life” she has a quote from Thomas Merton ” We must make the choices that enable us to fulfill the deepest capacities of our real selves”  I think that about sums it up, if we are not in the pursuit of knowing who and what we really are, and why we are here on this planet– we get to go around the sun lots of times and ultimately we will transition from the physical plane to another dimension without the fulfillment and content of finding meaning and purpose.

If you want to get more direction as we start off this New Year, I can highly recommend that you listen to this interview with a wise, and purposeful woman Pilar Gerasimo.  If she inspires you to take action, then go check out her course at Entheos Academy.

I hope you enjoy my interview with author, editor and renaissance woman Pilar Gersimo.

I had the pleasure of interviewing Eric Maisel the author of over 30 book on creativity, writing and personal growth.  His new book entitled ” Life Purpose Boot Camp” is an eight week plan for creating a meaningful life.  In my interview with Eric we explore the life long journey that so many people take in finding meaning and purpose in their lives.  As Eric states ” “no life purpose can event exist until we step back and identify, embrace and implement the ones that we choose.  He says that their is not one meaning of life but rather a multitude of subjective meanings, and that there is not purpose to life but rather a multitude of subjective life purposes.

In “Life Purpose Boot Camp” Eric provides the framework, tools and processes that people need to sort out their life purpose.  I know you will enjoy my interview with Eric about his new book.  If you want to learn more I recommend the following websites that will provide you with more information about Eric and “Life Purpose Boot Camp.”  Eric Maisel website, Facebook page, Life Purpose Boot Camp
