01: Finding Your Life's Purpose and Intentions for This Podcast
Have you ever heard something or read a passage in a book that changed your life’s path forever? Have you ever had an epiphany after which you never saw a situation the same way again? At times do you reflect on the fact that you are capable of much more than you are currently being, doing, and having? Do you hear a deep calling inside whereby if answered you’d be living life to its fullest?
The New Perspectives podcast is a compilation of talks, interviews and conversations that I’ve created with the intent to help you remember your beauty and possibility, while inspiring you to live proactively from your highest potential. My hope is that the words you hear will light a spark in you from which a tipping point can occur in your life. Topics are wide ranging and meant to touch places deep in you from which new contemplations can take place. Out of these contemplations exists possibilities for new ways of thinking, being and showing up in the world.
This time on our planet is a critical one. We are pushing into new territory as a humanity and are being called to step up our efforts by moving from self-centricism and isolation to a more selfless and inclusive way of living. To this end, we will need to form new patterns of thinking and doing and build a more expanded awareness with an increased capacity to intake, transform and express the intelligent energy that flows through us.
We can no longer afford wasted efforts, fruitless pursuits and monotonous, habitual lives. This is the time we’ve been hearing about and we are the ones we’ve been waiting for. The place is here and the time is now.
Thank you for showing up and doing the work.
In this episode I talk about my reasons for creating this podcast and what I'd like the audience to get out of listening to it. My main intention is to inspire new ways of thinking about the world and its phenomena, the self, and one's purpose while here.
Why are we doing what we're doing? Why do we put more effort into helping other things reaching their potential (like companies), yet we don't work near as hard to help ourselves reach our own potential? Hopefully the words and content in this podcast will remind you of your potential and inspire you to live within it.
We all have our gifts and something to offer the world, whether that be our skills, our wisdom, or our artistic expressions. Everyone's gift is relevant to the rest of the world and the more we express those gifts, the better the world becomes.
I didn't always know what I wanted to do in life or know what my life's purpose was. When I figured it out, I realized that it wasn't about "what" I did, but rather "how" I did what I did. Eventually my "purpose" became more about "being" and less about "doing". More about how I was showing up, and less about what I was showing up for.
What underlies your purpose in life and how are you executing on it?
