Have you ever had the opportunity to talk with someone that you have looked up to for a long time? What would you ask them? What would you talk about? Recently I had the opportunity to do just that…my guest and I talk about fear, business and how to prosper with purpose.
In today’s episode, our guest and I talk about:
- What the root of business is
- How business is inherently good
- What “prosperity with purpose” means
- The importance of authenticity in business
- The role Ray’s faith plays in his life
About Today’s Guest
Ray is a copywriter by trade (meaning he writes sales copy, so don’t ask him how to copyright your new widget). He has worked with some of the most powerful voices in leadership and business including New York Times bestselling authors Jack Canfield and Mark Victor Hansen (Chicken Soup for the Soul), and Tony Robbins. He is also a speaker and author, hosts my favorite podcast, wrote the #1 Amazon Bestseller Writing Riches, and a good friend.
You need fear. To live a life that actually means something, to do what you were born to do, to find your calling and fulfillment in life, you need to embrace fear. My advice to anyone who feels like they are wandering through life: Stop running from fear and start running to it.
The Only Thing We Have to Fear
Fear is not something to be afraid of as Franklin D. Roosevelt suggested. It’s the very thing crying out to you, telling you what you are meant to do.
Have you ever wondered if finding your calling was something for everyone or just for those who were really special? When you read stories of people who have “made it” you assume they must have just known. They must have had clarity. But that’s not true. That’s what today’s episode is all about.
What if we all had something we were born to do?
That’s the subject of the latest book by best-selling author, Jeff Goins. Jeff is someone who, in a short amount of time, quit his job working for a nonprofit, launched an online business, and began living his dream.
What if you could create products that connected to your purpose? That’s exactly what today’s guest is all about.
What’s it like to be so stressed out from work that it causes physical problems? Many of you can relate. You know that feeling all too well.
Today’s guest was so stressed that he broke out in rashes, suffered debilitating illnesses, passed out on a bus, and ultimately left his high-paying job to start his own company, based on his life purpose…and yours.
What would you do if you knew you couldn’t fail? That is the powerful question that today’s guest asks. Have you ever asked yourself that question?
So, what is it? What is the thing you would do if you knew you could not fail?
Is that what you are doing right now, professionally? What about in your relationships?
Today’s guest is more than a decade younger than me, but I learned a lot from this interview. In fact, I took more notes of my own after listening than I have on any previous interview.
I’ll think you’ll enjoy it and learn a ton as well.
If you want to change the world, there are certain attitudes you must adopt.
They are non-negotiable, absolutely essential to success, and you will notice them among all successful people.
So what are those attitudes? Well, you’ll have to listen to Episode 006 to find out.
