Living a Life of Purpose with Dai Manuel [Podcast Episode #95]

By: Ben Brown

Are you living a life of purpose?

Are you happy with the trajectory of your life, or are you living someone else’s vision for what you’re supposed to be doing?

In this episode, I bring back Dai Manuel, super-dad, husband, coach, author, and fitness educator to share more about his journey towards creating the life of his dreams and what steps we can realistically take to do the same. Dai shares how identifying and living your life purpose starts by peeling away the distractions that keep us playing small. Think about it, If money didn’t matter, what would you love to be doing on a daily basis? We discuss the inevitability of change, facing the unknown, and admitting the possibility that you aren’t happy with the life you’re currently living.

There are so many “what-if’s” that can really get you thinking outside of the box, and, according to Dai, start to paint a picture that maybe is a lot more reasonable and achievable than what you weren’t originally willing to consider. When you’re willing to ask the hard questions, you’re ultimately opening the door to limitless possibilities and how to be proactive about the inevitable change that faces all of us daily.
