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.

I recently met Greg O’Brien the author of “On Pluto” a fascinating book about Greg’s journey with Alzheimer’s.   In my interview with Greg we get to explore what goes on in the mind of someone with early onset Alzheimer’s.   While Greg will admit to you, his short term memory is frequently only about 60 seconds long,  the left side of his brain that part that is associated with creativity has not been affected as much and is more readably accessible.

I really like how Greg explains what it is like living with Alzheimer’s.  He says it is like doing laundry in the basement of your home and someone turns out the lights–how would you feel?  He says confused, frustrated, angry and ultimately you yell out for help and someone turns on the lights.  Everyday a sliver of your brain is being sliced off, and slowly you move into what Greg refers to as the distant planet Pluto.

Greg mentions that in the world Alzheimer’s has become and epidemic with approximately 135 million people being affected worldwide.  The outlook for this disease and its growth amongst the Baby Boomer is staggering.  He states that in 25 years there will be two kinds of people in the world–those with Alzheimer’s and those treating someone with the disease.

I hope you will take the time to listen to this wonderful man tell his story with has such a compelling message.  Listen, learn and understand how one lives with this disease, and can fight it as long as possible– through his book “On Pluto“.

Greg O’ Brien has not laid down,  he is a fighter and someone who will stay mentally alert using all the power he has to tell his story and provide ways to manage life with Alzheimer’s.

This is my second interview with Dorie Clark, and each time we speak I learn so much about branding and marketing myself.  While not a master at the subject if you want to learn more I suggest that you listen to my interview with Dorie, and get a copy of her book entitled ” Stand Out-How to Find Your Breakthrough Idea and Build a Following Around It.” 

What impresses me so much about Dorie is her sincerity and mastery of the topic.  In our world today many of us are vying for the attention of someone to listen to our idea and this  is becoming more and more difficult to capture their attention.   We have so many many people competing for attention of our target audience that it frequently seems like a red ocean out there, clogged with social media posts, tweets, emails and a myriad of other ways to distract who we would like to attract to our message or idea.

Stand Out uses real life stories and studies from top business thinkers like Seth Godin and David Allen, and experts in realms as diverse of genomics and urban planning. Dorie guides the readers through the process of developing their own breakthrough ideas, and then building a passionate following around them.  I encourage you to listen, learn and apply some of what Dorie teaches and speaks about for it is incredibly powerful.

I recently interviewed Ariyana a spiritual aspirant with an amazing message about her new book “Light Atonement“.  As most who commit their lives to helping people make a spiritual transformation they start from ordinary beginnings, and this is true of Ariyana as well.  She embarked on this journey because she knew their was a larger purpose.

I encourage you to listen to our interview together as Ariyana guides you through her personal journey and you learn more about how she connects with guides from other dimensions.  Through mediation, psychics, crystals and other means, Ariyana develops her abilities and begins unraveling the mystery of this purpose and shares it with us in this interview.  In her book “Light Atonment”  she shares her hard-earned wisdom and offers reflections that will help the reader find the meaning and fulfillment that is often so elusive.
